Former English Defence League leader Tommy Robinson was slammed by Piers Morgan as a ‘bigoted lunatic stirring up hatred’ on Good Morning Britain today.
The far-right activist prompted fury after accusing the Finsbury Park Mosque of ‘creating terrorists’ just an hour after people were mown down outside their place of worship as they left evening prayers on Sunday.
Piers later wrote a column for MailOnline claiming that Robinson was a ‘notorious Islamophobe’ whose ‘subliminal message was clear: they deserved it’.
And this morning Robinson was told to ‘Show some damn respect for people’s religious beliefs’ by Piers when he produced a copy of the Koran on the ITV show.

The far-right activist appeared on the show after he took to Twitter following yesterday’s terror attack accusing the Finsbury Park Mosque of ‘creating terrorists’
Mr Robinson prompted fury after accusing the mosque of ‘creating terrorists’ just an hour after the crazed terror attack.
He tweeted: ‘The mosque where the attack happened tonight has a long history of creating terrorists and radical jihadists and promoting hate and segregation.’
In his MailOnline column, Piers Morgan later said: ‘He insists he’s a man of peace who doesn’t hate all Muslims. Yet the truth is he’s a man of violence who is on the record blaming all Muslims for Islamist terrorism’.
This morning Robinson became embroiled in a furious debate with the ITV presenters.
Piers added: ‘You’re sounding like a complete lunatic. You’re sounding like a bigoted lunatic.’
‘You’re stirring up hatred. You’re being a complete disgrace.’
Robinson said the Koran was a ‘violent and cursed book’, adding: ‘This book is the reason we are in such a mess.’

Vile rants by far-Right extremists celebrating the Finsbury Park attack were circulating on Facebook and Google last night.
A video by Robinson, first published before the attack, was also circulated on Twitter yesterday.
In it, he said a ‘disgruntled, angry population’ would ‘end up cleaning out this Islamic problem’. Robinson denies he was inciting hatred.
