Video footage of far-right supporters of Tommy Robinson provoking peaceful Muslim activists at London’s iconic Speakers’ Corner yesterday.
On Sunday 18 March, the former leader of the English Defence League visited Hyde Park to deliver a short address “in defence of free speech”.
Hundreds of far-right hooligans turned up to show their support for the former-convict, including the renowned Islamophobe and former LBC presenter, Katie Hopkins.
Many Muslims also attended the debating site yesterday in solidarity with Muslim apologists who regularly propagate Islam at Speakers’ Corner.
Muslim attendees were told to remain “calm”, “united” and “organised” by the prominent Muslim apologist, Mohammed Hijab.
On numerous occasions, members of the far-right attempted to attack Muslims but they were either prevented by police or restrained by Muslims.
Members of the Black Kemet group also attended in support of Tommy Robinson against Muslims.
As you’re here…
5Pillars have one humble request from you…
Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.
5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.
This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.
Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).
You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?
If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
