Almost thirty Muslims have demonstrated outside parliament against a visit by Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders.London - Almost thirty Muslims have demonstrated outside parliament against a visit by Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders.
The small demonstration was held on Westminster's College Green, where the controversial Dutch MP had been due to hold a press conference.
The conference had to be hastily relocated inside the House of Lords annexe as a result.
Demonstrators held placards reading, Islam will dominate the world and Sharia for the Netherlands and Wilders go to hell. Sharia is Islamic law.
The demonstration attracted a great deal of media attention.
In response, Wilders said “They have a right to demonstrate and I respect that. I am proud that people can use their democratic right.
But I would have rather held the press conference outside."
