Dozens of far-right English Defence League (EDL) supporters have joined protests by radical Sikhs in the town of Luton, about 50 km north of London, on women in their communities allegedly being sexually exploited by British-Pakistani Muslims.

The protest took place outside the Luton police station over the way the police were handling a case in which a young Sikh woman was beaten and sexually assaulted, allegedly by a Muslim man, The Daily Mail reported.

The EDL members, including leader Tommy Robinson and his right-hand man Kevin Carroll, wore a rumal, the traditional Sikh headscarf, to signify their support. They brought traffic to a standstill, with female protesters laying down in the dual carriageway that splits the town centre.  "When the police fail to protect the community, when they fail to protect daughters, we have to protect them," Robinson said.

"We live in a community where Muslim paedophile gangs are operating without police pressure. If a Sikh girl is attacked in Luton, that is my problem, because she is a member of my community," he added.

Jasvinder Nagra, of the Luton gurdwara management, said, "Young girls are being targeted by men from the Pakistani community. They are making them believe they are in love, and then they reduce them to sex toys," she alleged.
