Hafiz Amjid of Rhodes Street Mosque has addressed the crowd at the Halifax protest against the Innocence of Islam film.

He told them this was a peaceful protest over the disturbing movie released in the US Innocence of Islam and also the publication of cartoons.

He said: “By peacefully demonstrating in Halifax we’re showing the country and the rest of the world we will not tolerate blasphemy to The Prophet. Any insult to The Prophet of Islam, we will not tolerate and will protest.

“Freedom of expression comes with limits. We are not here to incite and I hope that message is clear.”

Readings form the Koran have also featured.
