Thousands of protesters target Google’s London HQ over anti-Islam video
Protests over the American anti-Islam film that has sparked chaos across the Muslim world continued in London yesterday as thousands of demonstrators marched on the offices of Google. More than 3,500 British Muslims, some from as far afield as Glasgow, waved banners and chanted slogans outside the search engine’s UK headquarters to demand the company removes the film from the internet. The low-budget movie, entitled The Innocence of Muslims, portrays the Prophet Muhammad as a fool and a sexual deviant, and has sparked a torrent of anti-American unrest in Arab and Muslim countries since its release on YouTube last month. But Google, who own the video-sharing website, remained defiant today claiming the film is ‘clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on YouTube’. A spokesman for the company said: ‘We work hard to create a community everyone can enjoy and which also enables people to express different opinions.
