The petition, which is being hosted on the website, already has over 58,000 signatures.

Bradford resident Shazad Iqbal, who started the petition, claims that he did so because he thinks the video is blasphemous and uses the name of God ‘in an irrelevant and distasteful manner.’

According to Sky News, there has been worldwide support for the petition, with support coming from Dubai, Indonesia and The Netherlands.

Writing a comment underneath the petition, Sadaqat Ali from Birmingham said: “This is highly insulting, is provocative, and needs action.”

Sahar Niazmand from Australia said: “It’s unfair that Muslims are constantly targeted in the media, and then looked down on when they respond.”
