Anti-immigration protest to go ahead

A man behind an anti-immigration march which was called off last year says he will stage a protest in November.

Campaigner Dean Everitt scrapped the march after the Home Office agreed to visit Boston, which has one of the country's fastest-growing immigrant populations. The local council are also so worried about a population boom they've drawn up a plan on how they''ll cope with the changes.


Council for Mosques condemns video

The Council for Mosques in Bradford is hoping around 2000 people will attend its demonstration this afternoon in the centre of the city. They have condemned the video 'The Innocence of Islam' in a statement:

"The Council for Mosques emphatically condemns the production and underlying reasons for the release of this vile, malicious and inflammatory material of hate. The CFM does not accept the contention that this malicious production in any way represents and contributes to freedom of expression and a healthier discourse on the subject. The production and its release are responsible for deep hurt and distress for Muslims all over the world. It is also responsible for inciting hatred against Muslims and their faith. This is not right and can't be justified."

Crowds gather for demo against anti-Muslim video

Crowds are gathering in the centre of Bradford to demonstrate against an online film that they say ridicules the Muslim prophet Mohammed.

The film 'The Innocence of Islam' was produced by an Egyptian American, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who has today been jailed after his arrest in America for breaching his bail conditions. It depicts the Muslim prophet as a fool and a sexual deviant.

Today's protest in Centenary Square has been organised by Council for Mosques in Bradford and will take place from 3.30pm until around 5pm. They say the video spitefully disparages the sacred position of the Holy Prophet Islam with malicious intent to incite hatred against Muslims and their faith.
