NICK Griffin and members of The British National Party held a controversial protest in Victoria Square against plans to build a new mosque in Farnworth.

About 20 supporters of the far-right nationalist party protested on Saturday afternoon, against Bolton planning committee's decision on May 1 to allow the Sugrha Mosque in Granville Street to be knocked down to make way for a new one.

Some Bolton residents who walked past the protesters opposed their view and backed the committee's decision.

And Bolton Council bosses insisted the application went through exactly the same process as any other.

Under planning laws, the council must write to all properties within a given distance of the application site.

The letters give details of the application and say people can write to the council to support, object to, or comment on the proposal.

Mr Griffin appeared to suggest town-hall bosses should have asked everyone in Bolton for their views, rather than just immediate neighbours.

However, anyone is able to support, object to, or comment on any proposal, regardless of where they live.

The council also placed a public notice about the application in The Bolton News on January 30 and the newspaper also published several articles about the application before the committee met to make a decision.

Mr Griffin said: "We are trying to raise awareness of the way the council is pushing through the application for this mosque without full consultation. 

"People in Bolton think they are voting for a council which speaks for the working classes, but it gave up on that years ago.

"Bolton people have responded to our campaign very well. They are supportive and open-minded."

BNP activist Bryn Morgan added: "The Sughra mosque looks like something from the Middle East.

"One of Bolton Council's planning officers has even said it will have a drastic impact on the community in terms of parking, lighting and road congestion. 

"There seems to be a lot of underhand tactics on the council's part that we are highlighting today.

"Bolton Council hasn't consulted with the town's people over the building of this mosque - no one knew anything about it. They should be doing more to publicise it."

Tensions threatened to spill over when one man reacted angrily to the party's protest, which resulted in himself and a BNP supporter being escorted away by police.

As Mr Griffin and members of the BNP walked back to their bus after the demonstration, they were heckled by Liz Perry, who labelled the party "scum".

Ms Perry, aged 60, of Bradshaw, said: "I came down with a group of friends and we are absolutely disgusted that Nick Griffin has had the nerve to appear in our town.

"We are a multicultural town and for him to come here is appalling. He has no right to protest against what people in Bolton want.

"I want the mosque to be built and I know plenty of other people who do. What's the mosque doing wrong?

"All they are doing is inciting unnecessary racial hatred."

The council's environmental services representative, Cllr Nick Peel said: "“It is nonsense to suggest that, because a planning application is for a mosque, we should therefore consult with the wider public — we consult with the immediately affected neighbours as a statutory requirement.

"This application has only received particular attention because it’s a mosque.

"There’s a new church being built in Chorley New Road and this hasn’t sparked off a protest.

"I think people can see through the BNP front and see what they really represent, which is bigotry and hatred of people who are in any way different, in terms of race and religion."

Ms Perry of Bradshaw, keep your nose out of Farnworths business, if this was in Bradshaw next to you, you would be bleating like a good un.

The argument is about unfair and cowardly planning, if this was anything other than a mosque it would not be given consent. It's an eye sore, does not fit in with the environment, is out of the scope of local government for this type of building, and had little or no public consultation.

So bog off back to Bradshaw.

Gutted i didn't know in advance or i would have gone. Well done to Nick Griffin and so far over 600 have signed the online anti Farnworth mosque epetition.

Farnworth is largely a non Muslim area and we do not want this super mosque. We have seen Halliwell and Great Lever become immigrant hellholes the last 20 years and we don't want Farnworth to be the same. Part of the reason i left Heaton for Farnworth a decade ago was the fact Farnworth had very low immigration. I don't want to hear the "call of prayer" where i live thanks and Ms Perry typifies middle class Labour Party people who live in wealthy areas and are happy to impose Islam and immigration in white working class areas. Billy Bragg is the same,he preaches multiculturalism from his mansion in Dorset. These left wing vermin make me sick. Vote UKIP or BNP next Thursday and get Labour out and
also get Qureshi out next year at the general election.

We have far too many Churches and Synagogues in Bolton, especially with thw congregation numbers being so low - so lets close them as well!!!

Fact is it is NOT a new mosque, it is replacing a mosque in which the building it is in is falling down.

The number of people leaving the Christian religion and joining many of the Muslim faiths is actually growing on a daily basis.

People bemoan the mosque's but as they do not go to their own Church and a such as Churches close, they only have themselves to blame for not keeping the faith, unlike Muslim faith people!

The Muslim faiths have been in the UK just as long as Christianity - lets not forget it took almost 600 years before Christianity actually came to these shores after it was founded, mainly due to the Romans NOT accepting the faith for such a long period of time, because of their own dying faiths!

Also, finally, lets not forget that none of the Muslim faiths are illegal unlike Roman Catholocism which is still actually banned in the UK, ever since Henry VIII fell out with the Church, and the laws have never been repealed!!!

Why can people not just accept that this country is multicultural and just get on with it? We do indeed all share a planet, are we going to ask people to leave that too or would you prefer Christians live in one country together, Muslims in another, Hindu's somewhere else? Ridiculous. It's these kind of protests that cause segregation and hate and stop people across faiths from getting on.

Ms Perry, aged 60, I imagine you are still a Ms because all your expressed opinions have been misguided, misunderstood or downright wrong. Please tell me and all those reading what all the people you have spoken to think about this super mosssque, have they said it is their intention to attend prayer time five times per day, limit the freedom of females in their families, groom young people they know, pretend they wish to integrate whilst living in their own isolated communities...

Ms Perry, aged 60, you are blind to what has happened, is happening and what will inevitably happen regarding the islamisation of Bolton and the UK in general. Harwood and Bradshaw next. It shall be interesting to hear your comments when the PP is granted for the old restaurant at the corner of Longsight and Bradshaw Road.

Muslims flying on dedicated airplanes would be an excellent idea. I always think about that when I enter the security area and experience the process that has been created to protect airplane passengers from being blown out of the sky by some crazy who believes it is necessary to improve the World.
OMG, you really are unbelievable? 'Muslims should fly on dedicated airplanes?' Let's go 1 step further and only allow white christian English born & bred people on their own airplanes aswell?

It's people like you who give this country (and Bolton) the racist stigma that the vast majority of people detest. The very small minority being racist bigots like yourself.

If you don't like this country then move away to another that shares your views, but I know you won't find one.

I'm not born and bred from Bolton, but I do reside here now (16 years to be exact) and I love the town. I have several friends and neighbours from all walks, religions, beliefs and different birth places and nationalities of the world, and they are all nice, good people. Maybe I'm lucky with that or they are!

Next time you enter the security area of an airport, how about you don't come back and spread your vile racist views somewhere else.
As your previous quotes prove, your views are not liked or welcome. Are you a member of the BNP? (For the record I support Labour)

Why would anyone want to change this green and pleasant land? Why did Bolton and the rest of England become attractive to our colonial cousins? What happens when we have changed Farnwoth into something that resembles the sub continent? Let's hope we now have some influence on equal opportunities for women for all without exception of people who live in Farnwoth. Regardless of religion or sex we should have the same rights and outlook on life, this is what we fought for against the capitalist and dictators so moving on with the new building let us witness change, equal rights for all, let's make use of this new building to move towards harmony and the threat of discrimination dictation and oppression of the vulnerable.

A very liberal-minded colleague of mine (Griff) recently disclosed an experience with a Pakistani-born Muslim (Mo), who also worked in our industry. This happened around the early-mid 90s. Griff was kindly invited to Mo's house somewhere between Bury and Rochdale if I remember right. Yes, Mo's home was run very strictly, with Mo's wife and daughter having little interaction/conversa
tion with either Mo or Griff, who sat chatting in the front room, apart from serving tasks, ok, none of our business how someone else runs their home. But the fact that Mo said: " You live in Farnworth, right?", "Yes, on Trafford St" , "Well I'm telling you now, WE are going to buy all available houses in Farnworth from Moses Gate, up to Rawson St. After Rawson St, we don't want to know!"
And 20 years on, not one Muslim in my knowledge lives South of Rawson Street in Farnworth. Just all seems so pre-motivated, planned, like there is an agenda... But what is their agenda???

That Mosque has been their for 40 years no? Then why all of a sudden the need for this monstrosity? It should be replaced with a similar build.

So peple want to go on about creating a division? Are you kidding? THIS IS CREATING A DIVISION. Is that the purpose here? To create a divide?

We all can spin words... well I have spun this on its head. Build it to spec or the council are the ones at fault for creating the social divide not the people who are complaining.

Democracy? Democracy is a pi$$ take and people need to wake up to the Capitalist vampires that are seated in local government and in parliament.

Absolutely spot on sir. We are in the process of the perpetual divide and rule process put on us by the illusion of democracy. Whoever doesn't see a World War within 40 years is seriously uninformed, ignorant or plain stupid.

My word. The nazis have gotten a grip of this forum. You all talk of equality and fairness but only when it comes to the so called white Christian majority. This prat speaks of some covert plan by Muslims to take over a whole area. A few questions then Mr Himmler. Who are the people cashing in on the house sales? Houses are on the open market, why aren't white folk buying them? Did the mosque give £ thousands to these families to buy these houses or were they just bought by hard working Asians who thought that they had a right to shelter and security as anyone else? Another thing, you ungrateful fatso, you went to someone's house as a guest. They extended their respect and courtesy to you yet you ridicule their culture and way of life. It is merely your perception of their life that has deluded you into thinking that it is oppressive. A strict moral code is important to a strong society. That is why you will notice that eastern cultures are on the increase (India, China etc) and the debauched eaten ones have become a cancer to humanity. Shotdown. High fives to all my friends.

Ms Greasy Butty. 90% of the indigenous population were born in Farnworth.
