Dozens of Muslim protesters gathered to demand that businesses stop selling alcohol in a popular East London area yesterday.
The group, led by former Al-Muhajiroun leader Anjem Choudary, warned restaurants and shops in the Brick Lane area that they face 40 lashes if they continue to sell the product, which is banned under Sharia Law.
Around 60 men and women in burkhas handed over warning letters to Muslim-owned businesses in the area after the protest was initially delayed by a small number of English Defence League members staging a counter-protest.
This is madness & the threats of violence “ARE A CRIMINAL OFFENCE!”. So….. how many of these extremists are in jail tonight?……. exactly. One rule for one, one for another.
This is the UK. How DARE they. Live in Britain and RESPECT our ways. Follow whatever religion you want but to protest and stop a British way of life? Who the HELL do they think they are.
If they gave the shop owners letters threatening them with 40 lashes ie violence surely they should have been arrested for threatening behaviour?.
