A Demonstration in London for and Against Radical Islamic terrorism

Updated on December 9, 2017

Public Demonstration

A public demonstration took place in London a day back. The demonstration was not entirely peaceful and there are reports that scuffles have broken out between the police and the protesters This was an anti- Islamic terrorism demonstration in Central London. It took place close to Trafalgar Square. It has taken place 10 days after the West Minister attack, that left 4 people dead and over a dozen injured. The demonstrators wish to record the opposition of the people of London to radical Islamic terrorism. A large crowd gathered near Trafalgar Square for this demonstration. They are carrying banners stating London is under attack. The protest is being orchestrated by the way right party, Britain First. They are protesting against radical Islamic terrorism. The demonstration is been supported by the English Defense League(EDL), who have joined up with the far right group

The attack by a diehard Mulsim who believed in the convoluted theory of Pan-Islam and combined with terror resulted in 4 people dead and over 15 injured.The demonstrators wished to record the opposition of the people of London to radical Islamic terrorism. A large crowd gathered near Trafalgar Square for this demonstration. They were carrying banners stating London is under attack. The protest is was orchestrated by the way right party, Britain First. They were protesting against radical Islamic terrorism. The demonstration is been supported by the English Defense League(EDL), who have joined up with the far right group

A Counter Demonstration

Not to be outdone an anti-Fascist group, also organized a counter-demonstration. They were opposing the demonstration by the EDM and the far-right party Britain First. In a statement, the United front against Fascism said: "both groups are notorious Islamophobes, whose concern is not with the victims of the relatives but only lie in racism"

Both the demonstrations underscore the fragile nature of English politics. The country is divided and it a matter of surprise that a pro-Islamic demonstration can be done with impunity. Both the groups clashed and there were scuffles. The London police had a hard time separating the two groups. The fact that pro-Islamic demonstrations can take place in London is not a cause for celebration. Add to this the failure of the British PM Theresa May to mention the word IslamicTerror even once is food for thought. She spoke about everything else but Radical Islamic terror. What a far cry from the approach of the president Donald Trump.


Trump's Approach

Eyewitness account shows that the number of protesters supporting the far-right group was more in number. The protesters arrived in Central London with their faces covered. They looked a determined lot and was soon into a scuffle with the London police.The demonstration shows that politics and opinion in England are getting polarized and a large number of people are giving vent to the anti-Islamic feelings. Donald Trump would be looking at this demonstration with approval as he is the only Western leader who has articulated, on the danger of radical Islamic terrorism. He mentioned this also in his address to Congress, despite his secretary for Homeland security general McMaster advising him not to use the word.

Notwithstanding the approach of Theresa May, the far right is consolidating itself in France where Marine Le Pen is a serious contender for president. She may not win, but the ball is rolling against the migrants.

Last word

In contrast, the British prime minister, despite the terror attack has talked of everything except Islamic terror. With England set to leave the EU, it is clear that part of that Brexit movement was fuelled by the danger of almost 2 million refugees from the Middle East getting free access to England This was like a red rag to a bull and swept the Brexit victory.
