Via MatGB, now that's more like it.
Asghar Bukhari said the demonstration in London on Friday should have been stopped by police because the group had been advocating violence.

The chairman of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee said the protesters "did not represent British Muslims".

I'm very glad to hear it...

I would hope scertainly hope so - but Bukhari's group, MPACUK, has a track record of claiming anti-Muslim bias if a Muslim is publicly criticised, when the criticism has nothing to do with them being a Muslim per se.

For example, see

with regard to the extreme leftist Asad Rehman.

This may also a little branch of that wonderful cleanliness principle:

- Islam is about peace
- therefore, if a muslim does something not peaceful (like being a suicide bomber), he isn't really a muslim at all, even if he says he is and that that is he is reason for doing the horrid thing he has done (or is about to do)
- therefore, there is no violence in Islam and never has been.

Scott at Daily Ablution has some wonderful Damascene conversions to the cause of Peace, tolerance and freedom of speech also...
