Sharia law on London Streets
28 July 2011: Islamic extremists have set up Shria law controlled zones in British cities, so claims the Daily Mail.
The poster campaign bombards communities with the information ‘You are entering a Shariah controlled zone. Islamic rules enforced. No alcohol. No gambling. No music or concerts. No porn or prostitutes. No drugs or smoking’.
Muslim convert Anjem Choudary, who runs the banned militant group Islam4UK, has claimed responsibility for the scheme. Old University friends of Choudary say that if Shariah law had been introduced when they knew him, he would have been stoned to death numerous times for the activities he engaged in.
Choudary claims to have thousands of people up and down the country willing to patrol for him, raising fears that local residents could be intimidated and threatened for flouting Islamic law.
Scotland Yard is working with local councils to remove all posters as soon as possible and are studying CCTV images to identify the culprits.
