Dramatic video shows ‘Islamic protesters’ shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and playing the sound of EXPLOSIONS at full volume in east London street
- A crowd wearing Islamic dress gathered in Seven Kings, Ilford, east London
- Two men shouted Allahu Akbar into a mic while sounding gunshots on a speaker
- They played the speaker ‘even louder when a bus driver asked them to move’
An unsettling video has emerged of protesters playing the sound of explosions while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ to rouse crowds in east London on Tuesday night.
Witnesses said that men wearing Islamic dress gathered in Seven Kings near Ilford at 7.45pm.
Allahu Akbar translates from Arabic as ‘God is the greatest.’ The phrase has earned an unfortunate association with terrorism because extremists have been heard shouting it during recent attacks.
‘I have no idea what they were doing, but it was clearly some kind of protest,’ the witness said.
