It is being staged by the extremist organisation Muslim Engagement and Development (Mend).
Boss Azad Ali has backed the killing of Brit troops in Iraq. He has also called on mosques to pray for jihadis.
The sinister group is notorious for railing against Israeli “zionists” on Twitter.
Last night a prominent figure in the Government’s counter-terror programme Prevent said: “They are a cancer in the Muslim community — absolutely toxic.”

One anti-terrorism expert said: “They have several figures that are actively anti-Semitic. They go out of their way to attack liberal Muslim voices.”
Tory MPs Anna Soubry and Crispin Blunt have pulled out of Wednesday’s event — as has Lib Dem Sir Ed Davey.
The defiant organisation dismissed criticism of it as a “baseless slur”.
The FA last night declined to comment.
