Thousands Of Muslims Protest Against Isis And Terrorism In London

Thousands of Muslims marched through London to protest against Isis and other Islamist terror groups this weekend.Victims of the terror group were remembered during the peaceful march on Sunday, which also marked the start of the religious festival Ashura.
The march started in Hyde Park and ended in Trafalgar Square, with people of all ages carrying banners including ‘Muslims condemn terrorism’ and ‘180k imams have spoken against IS [Isis]’. The brother of aid worker David Haines, whose beheading by Jihadi John was posted online, spoke to the overwhelmingly Muslim crowd.

Mike Haines said: ‘It is important that we react in a positive way against these hate-mongers. I mourn my brother every day.

‘However he knew the risks of being a humanitarian worker. He and my family accepted those risks because he was doing important work, helping his fellow man regardless of creed, colour, race or religion.’ He added: ‘The callous murder of my brother, the bombing of a teenage concert in Manchester, the deplorable attack on a place of worship in Finsbury Park, the inexcusable name-calling of people based on their religion or colour – they all have one thing in common which is to incite hatred.’

Catriona Robertson, director of the Christian Muslim Forum, told The Daily Mail: ‘Today is an important day and this is an important procession. It is something that people from many different backgrounds can learn from.’ Ashura is the tenth day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar and marks the climax of the Remembrance of Muharram. The march is now an annual event which is becoming more popular every year.
