Thousands of British Muslims reportedly staged a protest against Internet search giant Google for releasing the 'hateful and offensive' anti-Islam video, saying they now live in an 'age of mockery'.

The outraged Muslims launched the protest outside the offices of Google in London in a bid to force the company to remove an anti-Islamic film from website YouTube.

Protestors expressed anger over the fact that ''The Innocence of Muslims'', an American-produced film, which insults the Prophet Mohammad and demeans Muslims still remains available to watch on YouTube.

The Telegraph quoted the protest’s organizer Masoud Alam, as saying that their ‘next protest will be at the offices of Google and YouTube across the world.’

“We are looking to ban this film. This is not freedom of expression, there is a limit for that. This insult of the Prophet will not be allowed,” he added.

The demonstration was the third organised in a month, and took place on the central London street where the website search giant has its UK headquarters.
