Ahmadiyya book stall attacked by EDL

  A local book stall in Cradley Heath market run by the Ahmadiyya community was stormed by the EDL on Saturday afternoon, the local Halesowen News reports.

From Halesowen News:

“A Muslim book stall in Cradley Heath market was stormed by over 25 thugs from the English Defence League this weekend.
“The shocking attack occurred in front of shoppers, many of which were women and children, at the market at 2.30pm on Saturday.

“The local Ahmadiyya Muslim book stall and Qur’an exhibition was attacked and volunteers were manhandled and abused by members of the Far Right organisation.

“Halesowen and Rowley Regis MP James Morris condemned the incident and branded it an ignorant and mindless attack.

“He said: “The people storming the stall may claim that they are defending their English identity, but tolerance for other people’s views and beliefs has long been a key part of what it means to be English.”

Cradley Heath Mosque and Islamic Centre were burnt down in 2009 by arsonists.
