Confused Muslims Shout Allahu Akbar, Threaten Opponents and Start Brawl at ‘Speakers Corner’ in London
Speakers’ Corner is a traditional site for public speeches and debates since the mid 1800’s when protests and demonstrations took place in Hyde Park.
Historic figures such as Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin and George Orwell were known to often use the area to demonstrate free speech. The British parliament set aside this part of Hyde Park for free speech in 1872.
But not everyone is open to this idea of free speech.
On Sunday a group of Muslims surrounded one speaker, threatened the man, started shouting, “Allahu Akbar”, followed the man and attacked him for exercising his free speech at Speakers Corner.
It’s not supposed to work that way.
