Muslim Vigilante Group Patrols London Streets- Tell Women To Cover Up

A group of young extremist Muslims calling themselves the "Muslim Patrol" have been walking the streets of  London in so-called "Muslim areas", accosting unveiled women, people carrying alcohol, harassing gay men, and vandalizing public property they find offensive, like bus shelters posting H and M ads of push-up bras. Two of their videos of the encounters that they had posted on  their YouTube channel are no longer available, although others have posted them. You can also see both of them on Liveleak.  A third one of them harassing a gay man is on YouTube, with a disclaimer.

According to The Commentator:

The footage is likely to have come from East London, where 'Shariah zones' were set up last year. The new tactic of intimidation is said to appall local residents, who will likely find the 'patrols' disconcerting.

In the videos, the 'Muslim Patrol' is heard to say, "Alcohol banned. This is a Muslim area. Muslims patrol the area."

One young woman, when confronted by the patrol, states, "I am appalled, this is Great Britain", to which the authors of the video are heard to remark, "We don't care. It's not so Great Britain".

Those involved are thought to be a part of an extremist network in East London and not linked to the wider Muslim community in the local area.

And the 'wider Muslim community' is apparently just as appalled by what these thugs are doing. Ibrahim Mogra from the Muslim Council of Britain condemned the vigilantes for their actions, as did Mohammed Shafiq:

...the chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, a Muslim organisation which campaigns for a peaceful co-existence among communities, has condemned the group's behaviour.
He said: 'We live in the UK and we are governed by UK law, there should be no mob rule. If people are involved in this behaviour then it is worrying but it is an isolated incident.'

If they are so enamored of Shariah and Muslim-only areas, perhaps they should pack their bags and move to Afghanistan.
