Muslim member of the English Defence League on demo

Help

Thousands of supporters of the English Defence League (EDL) demonstrated in Luton on Saturday in a massive rally against "militant Islam".

Police kept them apart from a counter-demonstration by anti-racism campaigners.

The EDL's supporters included Abdul Salaam, a Glasgow man who says he is a Muslim and argues that more Muslims should take the same stand.

Community leaders in Luton condemned the EDL's demonstration and said the town had stood together against attempts to divide them.
