  • "I’m fairly certain that this is a new tact from the far right groups. Instead of going straight for the usual “anti Muslim” stuff; they’re trying to go down a different route in drumming up support.

    Obviously the EDL brand has been tarnished and I doubt an area like Crayford was ever in their mindset when it came to one of their marches, so this new group are trying to distance themselves with a new look and approach.

    I doubt this mosque place is that bothered with the march and rightly so. The only people likely to be interested are the police and those enthusiastic tree huggers out there.

    I’m all for the right of freedom of speech etc as long as it works BOTH ways, so if people want to post their views and support for ENR, then let them.

    I’m submitting a similar protest idea to the ENR about the female only gym I wish to use, seeing as I’m a lovely lovely geezer.."

Crayford rally over 'sexist and offensive signs' at mosque

A PROTEST date has been fixed by a new right-wing organisation over "sexist and offensive" signs at a Crayford mosque.

Members of the England National Resistance (ENR) are angry the North West Kent Muslim Association’s mosque in Crayford High Street has separate entrances for men and women.

The rally, arranged by former BNP councillor for Swanley Paul Golding, was due to take place on April 6. However it was postponed due to the lack of notice and it clashing with a march in Brighton.

Now a group of 50 to 100 people are set to meet at Crayford Rail Station at 1pm on Saturday, May 18, before marching to the mosque in the High Street.

Mr Golding told News Shopper last month the rally was sparked by Facebook complaints about the "sexist signs" and muslims praying in the street outside the mosque.

He said: "The ENR is opposed to the treatment by muslims of women as second class citizens and objects strongly to the NWK mosque in Crayford insisting on a form of apartheid, or segregation, of women in line with Islamic principles that view women as inferior to men.

"To find that fundamental medieval attitude on the streets of Crayford in an ex-Christian church, we were appalled."

A Bexley police spokeswoman said: "We are working with the event organisers, mosque and community to plan for this event.

"We will aim to facilitate a lawful protest, ensure public safety and minimise any disruption it may cause Crayford's communities."
