Calls to ban 'silent march' by Tommy Robinson's Pegida group in Rotherham
Representatives of the Muslim community in Rotherham have asked for the police to ban a march by an anti-Islamic group through Rotherham on Saturday.
The Pegida group, led by English Defence League founder Tommy Robinson, is planning a 'silent walk' in the town on Saturday afternoon in relation to the town's child sexual exploitation scandal.
But local councillors, business owners and groups such as British Muslim Youth, the Rotherham Muslim Community Forum and the Rotherham Council of Mosques have written to South Yorkshire Police interim chief constable Dave Jones calling for the demonstration to be stopped.
