A group of Islamic protesters has caused outrage after shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and playing the sound of explosions in central London, mocking a terrorist attack.
I really do hope the police track down and prosecute these people.
The footage below shows the protesters screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ followed with the sound of explosions played through speakers at full volume.
A witness, who asked not to be named said: ‘I was alarmed, I didn’t know what was going on. When someone shouts Allahu Akbar while playing gunshot sounds on a speaker it is deliberately trying to alarm.
‘There was a lot of commotion with a big group shouting and cheering whenever the men got closer with the speaker.’
A bus driver stopped and asked them to move but the crowd refused and turned the speaker up to drown out the bus driver’s requests, the witness said.
‘I was alarmed at first but you come to expect things like that, it’s become commonplace in east London.
‘People say that they do not condone the loss of life but some believe that attacks like London Bridge are somewhat justified because of our foreign policy, like the war in Iraq.’
The Met Police said they were unaware of the incident.
If the met police were unaware of the incident then it’s fairly obvious that nobody decided to call the police, maybe the sound of Allahu Akbar and explosions is all too common in the UK these days?
