Following terror attacks in Britain and around the world, about 1,000 Muslims came together for a “peace march” in the city of Cologne, Germany on Saturday.

According to a report in the Independent, the people held placards, which read: “Hatred makes the earth hell” and “Together against terror”.

To put their message across and encourage people join the march, organisers wrote that “the attacks by people who justify their acts by invoking Islam, without justification, are becoming more frequent. Our faith is being abused, defiled, insulted and distorted into something unrecognisable by this. Let us put a powerful sign against violence and terror”.
