Britain First, a far-right group in the UK which on a number of occassions have 'invaded' mosques around the country, charged into a mosque in south-east London, where they gave the imam a seven-day warning to remove signs regarding gender segregation.
The group's so-called "Kent battalion activists" stormed into the mosque's prayer hall with their shoes on, refusing requests from an elderly man to show respect to the place of worship, the Huffington Post reported.
"Inform the Imams that they have exactly seven days to remove sexist, segregationist signs from outside their building, or we will,” one intruder, dressed in paramilitary clothing, demanded.
