Shaykh ul Aalam, Khwaja Mohammad Alauddin Siddiqui’s efforts to counter Islamophobia have also included major events and protests to raise vital awareness for the Muslims of the UK.
On Saturday 6th October 2012, thousands of Muslims gathered in protest outside the Houses of Parliament in London (as seen above) to display their love for the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and to demonstrate their outrage at the recent slanderous film which insults his blessed personality and honour.
The protest entitled ‘Alliance of Civilisations anti-Islamophobia Event’ saw Parliament Square overflowing with Muslims from every sect of the Islamic community, and speakers included scholars from both Sunni and Shia backgrounds. This ground-breaking unity came as a response to the call of Shaykh ul Aalam, Khwaja Mohammad Alauddin Siddiqui who called on the Muslim community to unite for this one vital cause, despite their internal differences, under the banner of the Messenger of Allah. The Shaykh spoke of the significance of the Muslim Ummah’s united front against Islamophobia, and the importance of strengthening our global image as a community. Under his esteemed leadership, the entire Muslim community willingly came together in complete harmony for one sole purpose; to display their sentiments regarding the significance of the honour of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
The peaceful protest was attended by a large number of speakers, many English-speaking, who delivered short inspiring messages to the thousands who filled the Square. The movement calls for a law to be passed in Britain which will protect the honour of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and other Prophets, and to grant Muslims the fundamental right of respect towards their faith. Speakers included the CEO of Islam Channel, Takbeer TV, Hidayat Channel and others, to name a few.
