  10. Here is his statement to Sky mate :)

    Muslim group Islam4UK has cancelled controversial plans to hold a march through the town of Wootton Bassett.
    The Wiltshire town honours repatriated soldiers and the Islamic organisation's proposals had sparked anger in several quarters.

    Islam4UK said the march was aimed at highlighting the plight of Muslims in Afghanistan and it said it had done this successfully.

    It also said in a statement it had successfully engaged with thousands of ordinary people through its website and via blogs, phone calls and emails on the reality of the conflict.

    But it added: "We at islam4uk have decided, after consultation with others including our Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad, that no more could be achieved even if a procession were to take place in Wootton Bassett.

    "And in light of this we would like to announce today that there will no longer be a procession through this market town."

    It added: "This does not mean that we will remain silent on the atrocities being committed in Afghanistan under the guise of fighting for freedom and democracy.

    "And it also does not mean that we will not continue to highlight the true cost of this war against Islam and Muslims called fighting terrorism."
