Ex-EDL chief sorry for scaring Muslims

Picture shows Ex-EDL chief Tommy Robinson being arrested for public order offences in central London in November 2010.

Former leader of the English Defence League (EDL) has apologized for spreading fear among British Muslims during the time he served in the far-right group.

In an interview with The Guardian on Friday, Tommy Robinson said he was œsorry” for creating a culture of “us and them”, frightening the UK™s Muslim community and issuing race-led comments.

Robinson, who quit the fascist group this week, also vowed to cooperate with police to help them identify and investigate dangerous racist EDL members.

He claimed earlier that he was leaving the group because it has become too extreme.

However, the 30-year-old from Luton, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, is reported to be facing various criminal charges as far as his racist activities with the group are concerned.

EDL members are expected to march in the British northern city of Bradford on Saturday, October 12. The rally was planned long before Robinson announced his departure from the far-right group.

But Bradford MPs George Galloway and Gerry Sutcliffe called on West Yorkshire™s Police Commissioner and Chief Constable to ban the march.
