Muhammedanerne vil have copyrighten til Muhammedtegningerne

Muslims march in cartoons protest

Muslims have held their biggest rally so far in the UK in protest at cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad.
Police said 10,000 people gathered in Trafalgar Square before marching to Hyde Park. No arrests were made. 

The London march was led by the Muslim Action Committee – an umbrella body for mosques and community groups.

It is the third consecutive weekend of demonstrations over the cartoons, which have prompted violent protests around the world since publication in Denmark.


Ishmaeel Haneef, from the committee, said the demonstrations were continuing because “the provocations have not stopped”.

“These things are still being republished across the world,” he said, using the example of an Italian minister wearing a T-shirt depicting the cartoons.

He said the way to “get back to being a civilised world” was to “give the copyright [of the cartoons] over to the Muslim community”.
