Anti-Islam demo in Harrow draws just 15 supporters

    Many more turned up for the counter-demo: Unite Against Fascism protesters outside the mosque
    Many more turned up for the counter-demo: Unite Against Fascism protesters outside the mosque

    A demonstration on Sunday against the building of a new mosque in north west London passed off peacefully, with no arrests.

    Leading Jewish organisations had called on members of the community not to attend the Harrow demo, with the Board of Deputies and Community Security Trust among those warning against joining the Islamophobic protest.

    Only 15 members of Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE), the organisation behind the demo, turned up at the rally, near Harrow Central Mosque.

    A small number brandished Israeli flags. SIOE had tried unsuccessfully to persuade members of the Jewish community to join it in its protest against the mosque.

    Around 200 Unite Against Fascism supporters also gathered in a counter-protest, but more than 800 police officers kept the two groups apart.

    There was no repeat of the violent scenes in September, when Muslim youths chased SIOE demonstrators from the area.
