Muslim Action Committee

Wednesday, March 22, 2006

After extensive discussions between the Ulema (Religious Scholars and Imams) in different areas, it has been decided to reschedule demonstrations throughout the country.

This has been due to a number of factors. Firstly we are almost into the Islamic month of Rabi-ul-Awwal, the month of the Prophet (pbuh) blessed birth and the traditional season for the nationwide Milad (birth celebration) processions. The Ulema have rightly decided it is better to focus our attentions and resources on combining our demonstrations with these celebrations of our love for the beloved of Allah (pbuh). This will Allah willing highlight these wonderful celebrations and show to our neighbours the deep love and affection in which we hold our Prophet (pbuh) in a more positive manner.

Two processions have already been scheduled for the 9th April in East London and Manchester, others are to be confirmed. We'll update you as we find out.

Secondly and more sinisterly demonstrations have been blocked by police and councils in many towns especially in the North West where repeated obstacles to mounting demonstrations have been placed in local organisers way. It has been reported to us that threats have been made by people claiming to be members of the BNP to local councillors in the north west.

However the demonstration in Birmingham will still be taking place this Saturday in Victoria Square and will be followed by a march. All the details will be on the main site tonight Allah willing.
