Muslim Eid festival cancelled in London due to rising racial tensions after Brexit vote


The recent BrExit vote out of European Union has started telling its negative effects, specially for the Muslims living in the UK. It has been announced that the annual Muslim central prayer to celebrate has been cancelled due to rising racial tensions following Brexit vote in London.

It was estimated that approximately 2,000 people were to gather in East Park, Southampton, but due to Far-right groups that threatened to hold protest in the city following Brexit vote, it has been decided to cancel the event.

This is one such announcement so far - it is feared that many other events may also be cancelled.





It may be added that a number of groups such as pro-refugee organisation Refugees Welcome and anti-fascist group Southampton AntiFa held a counter-demonstration in the same area on Saturday.
