Default Sharia patrols in London

Sharia patrols snatch drinks from passers-by
Dipesh Gadher Published: 20 January 2013

A hooded vigilante confronts a man with a can of lager

ISLAMIC extremists have launched vigilante patrols in London to enforce sharia by confiscating alcohol from residents and ordering women not to wear short skirts.

Scotland Yard has been forced to increase police presence in parts of the capital after intimidatory tactics deployed by hooded zealots who claim to be protecting “Muslim areas”.

The vigilantes, who call themselves the Muslim Patrol, say they are “implementing Islam upon the necks” of non-believers.

Footage of their activities was taken down from YouTube last week because it contravened the site’s rules on harassment, bullying and threatening behaviour.

In the footage, seen by The Sunday Times, the vigilantes:

■ Grab a can of lager from a startled white student and throw it on the floor, saying: “This is a Muslim area, so obviously no alcohol is allowed”

■ Tell another man that alcohol is “evil” before forcing him to pour away the contents of a beer can

■ Order a woman wearing a miniskirt to stop “exposing” herself near a mosque. “You can’t dress like that in a Muslim area,” they tell her. When the woman tries to remonstrate, she is told: “We don’t respect those who disobey God.”

Members of the Muslim Patrol have also targeted posters at bus stops advertising H&M push-up bras, declaring such images to be “disgusting public pornography” and daubing them with black paint.

The vigilantes have been operating in the east London boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

They are believed to be linked to the many offshoots of al-Muhajiroun, an extremist group banned by the Home Office.

The Muslim Patrol created a dedicated YouTube channel to upload videos last month. The site’s logo was a placard that said: “Shariah [sic]: The Future For UK.”

Such banners have been a regular feature at protests linked to former al-Muhajiroun members, some of whom are convicted terrorists.

One video posted on YouTube, which has since been removed, was called: “Muslim Patrol: The Truth About Saturday Night Out.”

Police believe it was filmed by the vigilantes in Whitechapel last weekend. It features at least two men, including one wearing a hooded top, targeting residents late at night.

The caption accompanying the three-minute clip, stated: “From women walking the street dressed like complete [sic] naked animals with no self-respect, to drunk people carrying alcohol, to drunks being killed in the middle of the road, we try our best to capture and forbid it all.”

In one scene, the vigilantes can be seen berating a white woman wearing a denim miniskirt as she walks past a kebab restaurant with a male friend. “You can’t dress like that in a Muslim area,” she is told. A voiceover on the video adds: “We need to forbid these people from dressing like this and exposing themselves outside the mosque.”

The woman responds: “I am so appalled . . . This is Great Britain. Women have rights.”

The vigilante patrols are thought to involve a very small number of trouble-makers whose actions have disgusted the majority of Muslims in the area. However, two years ago, The Sunday Times revealed that an Asian pharmacy worker received death threats in Tower Hamlets for refusing to wear a headscarf.

Homophobic stickers also sprang up in the borough and bus-shelter posters featuring models in bikinis were defaced. Similar acts of crude censorship have also taken place in Birmingham and Derby in the past.

Ghaffar Hussain, a counterextremism expert, said: “The actions of these hooligans are despicable, immoral and unrepresentative of Muslim communities at large. They run contrary to the values we all share and uphold in modern Britain.”

A Metropolitan police spokesman said: “Officers on duty are being briefed as to what has occurred and what to be on the lookout for. Patrols in the areas affected have also been increased in an effort to catch those carrying this out and to reassure the local community.”

Islamic extremists have launched a poster campaign across the UK proclaiming areas where Sharia law enforcement zones have been set up.

Communities have been bombarded with the posters, which read: ‘You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced.’

The bright yellow messages daubed on bus stops and street lamps have already been seen across certain boroughs in London and order that in the ‘zone’ there should be ‘no gambling’, ‘no music or concerts’, ‘no porn or prostitution’, ‘no drugs or smoking’ and ‘no alcohol’.

Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility for the scheme, saying he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK and ‘put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term’.

Hey, Nick, my half-British friend, that immigration policy of Britain, it is paying off now, yes?

God... If those Wakhabit pigs tried that here... telling a man to pour his beer out on the street... The answer would probably be a knife between the Wakhabit's ribs. Yes, we now have those Orthodox Christian patrols here that I wrote about before, backed by Cossacks

But that is different: the Orthodox are on THEIR land. Orthodox Faith is indigenous here (well, it is originally from Greece, but that was what, nearly a thousand years ago). I am not saying, as a Orthodox person, that I agree with this either; but, at least those people are in their home, so they have a right to assert their values (although, to be fair, atheist Muscovites are also in their home, and they too have a right not to be harassed on the streets But that is not the point). Those Wakhabit invaders need to be expelled from Britain, if Britain still has any self-respect and pride left.

I agree with MeMyselfandI, this is a very sad state of affairs for Britain. The different ethnic and religious/atheist/agnostic groups of Britain should live together in peace. Not much more to add.

I did not say the Orthodox thugs are okay. I do not think they are okay or what they do is okay. In fact, if I was walking on the street and saw them setting upon some poor guy, tearing off his Pussy Riot t-shirt or whatever, I would probably intervene to help that person.

But I am just saying, the Orthodox here are at home. The Islamists in Britain are much worse, because they come to another country to try to force their ways on the people there.

Oh boy this is not going to end well.

I suppose some of these Muslim thugs are going to get themselves beaten up or killed playing that game.

I certainly won't shed a tear for them if they do. I'd be more inclined to donate to the defendant's defense fund.

Sorry, misread you there. Sometimes I miss text because of the layout with the pictures. My apologies. I know how much it pisses me off when someone misstates what I was trying to say.

Yes, this is the aspect that annoys me the most. If the psycho-Muslims want to do this in a Muslim country, that's none of my business and I don't really care. Doing it in a western country is pure religious extremism that should be met with extreme violence in response. No mercy for religious fanatics on a rampage.

Number of muslims in the UK : 1,770,000.
Number of asshole idiots that play Sharia Patrol : 5 or 6 ?
What the Sunday Times (allegedly not a tabloid, LOL) fails to mention is that the first to condemn this was the Muslim Council for the UK who does represent the majority of muslims.

Do you realize that you are making the exact same argument the US Military and US Government has used to excuse the actions "of a few loners" at Abu Ghraib prison?
