Muslim only areas of London, by Jane Kelly.
Over the last few years there have been attempts by Khan’s fellow Muslims in various parts of London, such as Hackney and Tower Hamlets to establish and maintain Muslim only areas. This is more than the mere ‘sleep walking into segregation,’ observed by Trevor Phillips last year.
Young Muslim men have been filmed patrolling and stopping people from carrying alcohol, harassing wearing ‘immodest’ clothing, and verbally threatening men they suspect are gay. During these operations all sexy advertising posters were stripped from bus shelters.
In 2013 Muslim vigilantes protested against advertisements for push-up bras by High Street retailer H&M. In the three minute video posted on line they said: ‘The Muslims have taken it upon themselves to command the good and forbid the evil and cover up these naked people.’ They showed a number of advertisements for the product which had been sprayed over and filmed themselves pouring petrol over one advertisement and setting it on fire.
In a video posted on U-Tube two years ago, filmed in Whitechapel, east London, Muslims were seen aggressively pursuing a lone man.
‘Hello mate, don’t you know this is a Muslim area. Why are you dressed like that for,’ they asked. The man responded: ‘Why are you bothering me?’
‘You are walking in a Muslim area dressed like a fag, mate,’ came the uncompromising reply. ‘You need to get out of here.’
The man said he was off.
‘Get out of here quicker then,’ they tell him. ‘You’re dirty mate. Admit you’re dirty. You’re gay, mate. Get out of here, you bloody fag.’
Why wasn’t that all over the news? It would be if it was white males doing or saying that.
