About 10,000 Muslims protested outside the search engine giant Google’s offices in London, UK to force the firm to remove an anti-Islamic film from its video-sharing website YouTube.
Protestors reveal that the film named as ‘The Innocence of Muslims’, an American-produced film which abuses the Prophet Mohammad and degrades Muslims, is still available on the website YouTube, a Google subsidiary.
Organiser Masoud Alam said was quoted by The Telegraph as saying that their next protest will be at the offices of Google and YouTube across the world.
"This can be a challenge because what’s OK in one country can be offensive elsewhere, spokesperson said.
"This video – which is widely available on the Web – is clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on YouTube."
