A group with ties to a banned Islamic group is planning a march on Wootton Bassett.

Wootton Bassett has become famous for the processions of repatriated service men and women who have tragically lost their lives whilst on active service in Afghanistan.

The leader of the group Islam4UK, Anjem Choudary, has released details of their intention to bring Muslims to protest , it would seem from their “current affairs” release that they would like to bring attention to the “genocide” being committed by all soldiers in Muslim countries and injustice of British soldiers bring “paraded as war heroes”.  The group also want to bring attention to the media their desire to convert England to an Islamic state under the Sharia law.

Most of the nation is in up-roar over the proposed march, Wootton Bassett has become a route where the public can pay their respect and honour the dead who have given their lives for this country.

The Wilshire town of Wootton Bassett has seen a number of Muslims protests, with offensive and inflammatory placards being waved while soldier’s bodies are being returned home. These Muslims have been led by Choudary and his Islam4UK website, as well as the militant and banned group they represent Al-Muhajiroun.

While the group says they are against the murder of innocent Muslims, they seem to show a great deal of respect and admiration for terrorists, suicide bombers and al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, people who have no problem targeting civilians.

It is unlikely that this march will be authorised by the authorities and Choudary has also admitted that the location has been chosen in order to bring the up-roar and maximum media profile. He brings up democracy and asks why he can’t hold his protest where he likes?

We understand that lots of people will have lots of thoughts about this march and we welcome your comments.
