"No to war, no to racism and no to Islamophobia" were painted on banners while Mohammed Asif, president of the society, rallied the group over a loudspeaker.

Mr. Asif stressed that pastor Terry Jones is stirring up hatred against Muslims, and that he should be stopped immediately adding "our faith is being humiliated"

"We have never gone to a church or mosque in Britain or America and started burning things".

"I am sure the police would have arrested us if we were the ones burning the Bible – something we would never do".

He warned of the grave consequences following the Quran burning, maintaining that it would aggravate the situation in Afghanistan, and more British and American soldiers are going to die as a result of the actions of others.

Update: 9:35 pm

The Vatican issued a statement which condemned  the planned mass torching of copies of the Muslims  Holy Quran by a US church in Florida describing it as  “an outrageous and grave gesture”

The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue voiced its dissent highlighting that it was extremely concerned stressing;

 “Each religion, with its respective sacred books, places of worship and symbols, has the right to respect and protection,” the council said.

It appealed to other leaders to follow suit

“Each religious leader and believer is also called to renew the firm condemnation of all forms of violence, in particular those committed in the name of religion
