London protest against Arab `puppet` dictators
London: Two hundred supporters of a hardline Islamic group demonstrated outside the Libyan embassy in London on Saturday, calling for an end to the rule of "puppet" dictators in the Arab world.
Demonstrators from the Hizb-ut-Tahrir group lined the road near the embassy in central London to protest against the regime of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, waving placards calling for khilafah -- the Islamic way of life.
Banners read: "End support for Arab puppet tyrants" and "Khilafah: The only way for stability in the Middle East".
Other flags urged further uprisings, reading: "Bring down all the regimes".
Nasim Ghani, 40, a Bangladeshi doctor living in east London, said: "We want to see the end of these regimes in the Muslim world.”
"We want to see real independence and the only way that will come is with a new Islamic system."
Another protester, Muhydin Lazikani, 59, a Syrian journalist living in London, added: "The people of Libya deserve to be free. They fight hard, they live hard and they need freedom. They need an open society."
