Five Muslim men have been arrested in London after videos emerged online of a group of men intimidating and harassing passers-by for being gay, drinking alcohol, or wearing mini-skirts in what they said was a “Muslim area”, police said.
Naharnet(h/t Shirl in Oz)The arrests were made over what Scotland Yard described as “filmed harassments” in east London, an area with a high concentration of Muslims, earlier this month. (See videos at end)
Detectives voiced particular concern about a YouTube video entitled “Muslim vigilantes in London harass and taunt gay male”, in which a group of men verbally abuse a man in the street for being homosexual. (Yes, nothing was done until they started to harass homosexuals)
UK Daily Mail The hooded men, who call themselves Muslim Patrol, have been filmed walking London’s streets and calling white women ‘naked animals with no self respect.’ The group is also shown taking ‘evil’ booze from revellers and film a cyclist being treated after a road accident, claiming they were injured because they were unclean.
In one exchange a member of the group says: ‘We don’t care if you are appalled at all’, before calling themselves ‘vigilantes implementing Islam upon your own necks’. The vigilante video follows an earlier clip made by the group where they protested against adverts for push-up bras by High Street retailer H&M.
In the clip they say: ‘ The Muslims have taken it upon themselves to command the good and forbid the evil and cover up these naked people.’ They show a number of ads for the product which has been sprayed over and also film themselves pouring petrol over one advert and setting it on fire.
Detectives voiced particular concern about a YouTube video entitled “Muslim vigilantes in London harass and taunt gay male”, in which a group of men verbally abuse a man in the street for being homosexual. “Don’t you know this is a Muslim area?” an off-camera voice in the video says. “You’re walking through a Muslim area dressed like a fag, mate. You need to get out of here… You’re dirty, mate. You’re gay mate, get out of here… You bloody fag.”
The men also ask revelers out on a Saturday night to move away from their mosque, and demand that one man put down his beer, saying: “No drink in this area… this is a Muslim patrol. Alcohol is evil.” Five men aged between 17 and 29 years old have been arrested since Sunday, all on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and public order offenses.
