Extreme Muslim Group Plans “Hell for Heroes” Demonstration

31.10.2011

The extreme Muslim group “Muslim Against Crusades” (MAC), some of whose members burned poppies during Remembrance Day ceremonies last year (as reported), is planning another protest for November 11th.  Mocking the charity “Help for Heroes” by calling their protest “Hell for Heroes”, the group announced they will not observe the minute of silence at the annual services to remember and honour the fallen soldiers. Instead, they are planning to disturb the silence around Royal Albert Hall by chanting. According to the Daily Mail, Cleric Anjem Choudary, who has links to MAC, said it was “one thing to remember the dead from the First World War and subsequent wars but it’s quite another when they say we need to remember the dead from Afghanistan and Iraq”.
