Muslim leaders split over planned IS protest march
Differences have emerged in the Muslim community over plans for a protest march against Islamic State terrorism later this month.
While the Irish Muslim imam behind the planned "not in our name" march has claimed that the Muslim leadership is not vocal enough in denouncing extremism, a representative of the biggest mosque in Ireland has questioned whether a mass public demonstration is appropriate.
The demonstration, the first of its kind in Ireland, will take place on July 26 in Dublin's O'Connell Street under the umbrella of the Muslim Peace and Integration Council, as communities in Meath and Athlone mourn the murders of Lorna Carty and Lawrence and Martina Hayes by an Islamic State gunman in the Tunisian beach massacre.
