Local EDL group criticised for sharing fake Muslim scholar quote
A local branch of the far-right English Defence League (EDL) group has been criticised by online activists after attributing a fake quote to a Muslim scholar.
The Yorkshire EDL Leeds Division shared an image of Dr Zakir Naik, a scholar and preacher based in India known for television appearances notably on Peace TV.
The quote in the image quoted him as saying: "I call for an immediate ban on the movie 'Gravity' as it shows 'Earth' to be spherical, which is against the Quran, & thus insulting to muslims."
