A subsequent campaign was started, calling to ban Mr. Trump from the UK on race-hate grounds — but the Home Office refused.

Kamran Malik libel claim against Donald Trump struck out https://t.co/B0cRufycf5— Inforrm (@Inforrm) October 6, 2016
However, Kamram Malik and his Communities United Party lost the legal battle over Mr. Trump's controversial claims.
Mr. Malik has sought permission from London's High Court to proceed with his claim — however Master Victoria McCloud, ruled that the case was not actionable.
"It's disgusting, I spent a lot of money and it took a lot of hard work to be turned down by the judge like this. I hope to appeal the decision. His comments really affected and upset people, which is why I wanted to seek justice through the court," Mr. Malik told Sputnik.
Mr. Malik explained that in the area where he lives in London, around 45 percent of the population is Muslim, and people were very upset to read Donald Trump's comments.
"When people see these kinds of remarks it seriously affects them," he said.
"Trump has no base to defame Muslims in this area. The whole religion is not bad. No one has the right to publicly defame people like that and when it's said by someone like Donald Trump — it's repeated on televisions around the world and allowed to spread. This is not fair," Mr. Malik told Sputnik.
She also said Mr. Malik's claims under the European Convention of Human Rights, the Equality Act and Religious Hatred Act failed for legal reasons.
Despite losing the case, Mr. Malik says he is "satisfied" that he "tried to do something positive for my community."
Mr. Malik, who did not appear in court, has been ordered to pay US$43,000 costs and refused permission to appeal — although he can reapply to the Court of Appeal. However, Mr. Malik told Sputnik he cannot afford to pay the costs.
