Muslims cancel plan to stage anti-terror march in capital

    A planned march by Muslims in Edinburgh to demonstrate their opposition to the London terrorist attacks has been cancelled. Muslim leaders met to discuss a possible march at the weekend, but have decided to hold low-profile local events instead. Smaller-scale prayer meetings and vigils are now set to be held across Scotland to help remember those who lost their lives in last week’s attacks. Jalal Chaudry, chair of the Islamic Society of Scotland and a member of the Muslim Council of Britain, said: “It was felt there was not enough notice for people to travel from all over Scotland to a march.”
