A poppy-burning Muslim group which has now been banned in the UK has exclusively told Sky News it has cancelled an Armistice Day demonstration.
Speaking to Sky's security editor Sam Kiley, Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) spokesman Anjem Choudary said the "Hell for Heroes" protest would not go ahead:
"Due to the danger of confrontation with groups like the BNP we were planning to move or reschedule the demonstration anyway.
"Now that there is a risk of arrest we are calling on our members and supporters not to attend the meeting tomorrow."
Home Secretary Theresa May announced the organisation would be outlawed from midnight tonight.
Ms May said MAC is "simply another name for an organisation already proscribed under a number of names" including Al Ghurabaa, The Saved Sect, Al Muhajiroun and Islam4UK.
The decision means anybody who is a member of, or supports the organisation is committing a criminal offence.
Mr Choudary also denied allegations that the group had been planning a similar protest this year.
Last month a Conservative MP demanded action after he was threatened by extremists at a constituency surgery.
Mike Freer was forced to take refuge in a private room after protesters forced their way into a surgery he was holding at a mosque in north London.
The protest followed the posting of messages on the MAC website urging supporters to target the MP.http://news.sky.com/home/uk-news/article/16107674
