Muslim "Modesty Patrols" on London Streets

I have several dear Muslim friends, including my former manager who I totally adore, and as people, I get along great with them. But the religion itself, as more and more immigrants come into the country, this is what I fear, and this is what is becoming reality on the streets of our capital:


Earlier this month, a group who had claimed [that] an area in East London was a "Muslim area" had told people that alcohol was banned, or that they were dressed inappropriately.

Borough officials, community leaders and police condemned a group of self-proclaimed vigilantes who took it upon themselves to patrol the streets of London confronting people they deemed as indulging in "non-Muslim" behavior.

The group, who dubbed itself a "Muslim patrol," filmed the incidents and posted the footage on YouTube.

In one video, which was published by the UK news portal The Commentator, the group could be seen destroying advertisements for H&M lingerie on bus shelters in the Whitechapel area of London. "The Muslims have taken it upon themselves to command the good and forbid the evil and cover up these naked women," one of the vigilantes says in the video.

Another video shows the group harassing members of the public for consuming alcohol. In one incident, a member of the public is told to dispose of a can of beer he is drinking.

The individual shown in the video is clearly shocked when he is told it is a Muslim area and that alcohol is "evil and banned" as they take his beverage away from him.

One young woman confronted by the group said she was appalled by their actions.

"This is Great Britain," she said, to which the patrol can be heard saying, "We don't care. It's not so Great Britain, you understand? Vigilantes are implementing Islam."

The London Metropolitan Police said that they are treating the incidents with "appropriate gravity," adding that they are aware of the incidents and are increasing police patrols in the area.
