A group of Muslims behind an anti-terrorism demonstration in Dublin, say they faced resistance from a few members of the Islamic community, while promoting the event.
The Irish Muslim Peace and Integration Council organised the protest against terrorism and the actions of the so-called Islamic State group.
Organisers said that a member of the council was assaulted by someone at a mosque who claimed to support 'ISIS', while he was handing out leaflets to promote today's protest against terrorism.
Shaykh Dr. Umar Al-Qadri of the IMPIC, says Muslims in Ireland need to take a stand against radical teachings.
"We as Muslims, we must condemn them. We must not remain silent," said Shaykh Dr. Umar Al-Qadri .
"The Mosques, the Islamic centres, the organisations, we should not ignore these, because these people are like an infection, like a cancer. If you remain silent you will let them come in the Mosque and they will speak to the youth and spread the cancer of extremism to the Muslim youth."
