Muslims protest in Cardiff against 'anti-Islam laws'

Muslims protest in Cardiff

"We want to use freedom of expression laws to expose double standards," says protest organiser.

But freedom of expression is contrary to Shari'a!! So its use the freedom of expression laws while we can then!!


Muslims have demonstrated in Cardiff to protest against laws across Europe which they say are anti-Islam.

Saturday's protest was to highlight what they believe is an "ideological attack" on Islam.

Organiser Muhammad Abu Yaffir said: "Muslims feel very strongly about these laws being introduced across Europe".

Last year Switzerland voted to ban the building of new minarets, while France is debating a ban on the Islamic veil.

Mr Yaffir said: "Wherever Muslims feel pain anywhere in the world it is our responsibility to respond to their needs.


This isn't just about Muslim women being asked to cover their faces, this is an ideological attack on Islam and Muslims

"The laws being proposed are a form of oppression and we will respond to this oppression."

Muslims from communities across south Wales were expected at the "standing still" demonstration outside City Hall.

Last year, some 57.5% of Swiss voters voted in favour of a ban on building any new minarets in the country.

The French parliament is debating plans to ban the wearing of full Islamic veils in public.

The bill in front of the lower house would make it illegal to wear the niqab or burka anywhere in public.

Belgium's lower house of parliament voted for a law that would ban women from wearing the full Islamic face veil in public earlier this year, while Barcelona is the first large Spanish city to announce a ban on the wearing of full Islamic face veils in some public spaces.

Mr Yaffir said: "This isn't just about Muslim women being asked to cover their faces, this is an ideological attack on Islam and Muslims."

He said Belgium, France, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Canada and the UK had all introduced or were debating the introduction of laws that were anti-Islam.

The protest was organised by Ummah of Muhammad, which Mr Yaffir described as "a platform to share ideas and exchange views".

"We want to use freedom of expression laws to expose double standards," he said.

What business do any of these people have even being in Europe?

You welsh bullies - you're oppressing these poor innocent Muslims. Set them free! Allow them to return back to the paradise they so long for.

Go on, let them go, , after a while you'll probably find you don't even miss them.
