An estimated 10,000 Muslims On Sunday protested outside of Google's offices in London in an attempt to force the company to block access in the UK to the "Innocence of Muslims" film on YouTube, Britain's Telegraph reported.

In an interview with the paper, demonstration organizer Masoud Alam announced that "Our next protest will be at the offices of Google and YouTube across the world. We are looking to ban this film."

He added that the crudely-made film which mocks the Islamic Prophet Mohammed should not be protected under the banner of free speech, saying "This is not freedom of expression, there is a limit for that. This insult of the Prophet will not be allowed."

Alam said he is planning "a million strong" for Hyde Park "in the next few weeks."

"Until [the movie] is banned we will keep protesting," he concluded.
