London, Sep.8 (ANI): Anti-Islam demonstrators plan to protest outside one of London's largest mosques on Friday (September 11), the eighth anniversary of 9/11 attacks in the United States, raising the prospect of violence.

Large numbers of anti-fascists also intend to descend on the site of the new Harrow central mosque to show solidarity with Muslims, The Times reports.

The English Defence League inflamed tensions over the weekend during an anti-Islamic rally after riots in Birmingham.

Both groups have promoted Friday's protest on their websites. It is being organised by a third right-wing group calling itself Stop Islamification of Europe.

Ghulam Rabbani, the general secretary of the mosque, told The Times that extra security had been hired and worshippers had been urged to ignore provocation. (ANI)
