Extremists block Muslim website just hours after it appears online
METRO REPORTER - 26th September, 2011
A Muslim website denouncing terrorism has been brought down by Islamic extremists less than three hours after being set up.
Organisers Minhaj-ul-Quran International said its www.peaceforhumanity.co.uk site had come under repeated cyber attacks after its launch before an audience of 12,000 Muslims at Wembley Arena on Saturday.
The group is hoping to attract a million signatures online denouncing terrorism.
It said last night it was working to get the website running again.
The site was launched at the Peace For Humanity conference, which took place at the London venue over the weekend.
The event, endorsed by Islamic scholar and spiritual leader Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, was calling for peace, tolerance and respect to people of all faiths and backgrounds.
According to the site those that sign the declaration 'affirm that all humans everywhere possess inherent dignity and immutable rights, including freedom from poverty, oppression, fear and prejudice and freedom of belief, worship and expression'.
Since the cyber attacks a temporary version of the site has been made available.
