The Muslim community did not want the "commemoration" in 2020 of that event to occur as it was not their way, yet that happened.
Again it happened in a smaller way this year.
Now there is an intention to make a film about the effects , which again the Muslim Community have clearly said they do not want to happen.
Here is a link and your opportunity to sign a petition showing your support for the Muslim Community in defeating the intentions of those who would profit from making such a film.
