Multi faith meeting called in reaction to film

Religious leaders from all backgrounds are joining politicians and hundreds of Islamic worshippers at a gathering in Huddersfield this evening.

The meeting has been called in reaction to an anti Islamic film made in America, which has sparked global riots and hundreds of deaths. It's hoped the get together will encourage understanding between faiths and strengthen lines of communication.

The Prophet Muhammad is the example par-excellence for Muslims and in the face of abuse directed at himself always reacted peacefully by either removing himself from the situation or responding with reasoned intellect. "
