Thugs masquerading as ‘Muslim Patrols’ have been accosting residents in London, demanding they abide by the laws of what they deem a ‘Muslim area’ [why call them thugs? They're simply devout Muslims. No thuggery at all. Just plain Islam].

The Commentator has found evidence of self-styled ‘vigilantes’ patrolling streets of London, accosting women and vandalising public property. The group, which is attempting to cordon off ‘Muslim areas’, has dubbed itself ‘Muslim Patrol’.
So far, the group has posted two videos to its new YouTube account which was set up in December 2012. The first video shows the destruction of advertising and vandalising of bus shelters, both displaying images of H&M push-up bras. The second video sees the ‘vigilantes’ approaching and harrassing members of the public for either consuming alcohol, dressing ‘inappropriately’, or being inebriated near a mosque.
Several of the videos uploaded to the account have already been removed as they violated YouTube’s terms and conditions. One specifically states that YouTube deemed it intentionally “designed to bully, harrass and threaten”.
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’.
They have uploaded videos to their YouTube channel with the most recent three-minute clip causing a stir online.
‘The Truth About Saturday Night’, which was uploaded on Sunday, has already been viewed more than 42,000 times.
Scotland Yard says it is investigating.
The footage is likely to have come from East London, where ‘Shariah zones’ were set up last year. The new tactic of intimidation is said to appall local residents, who will likely find the ‘patrols’ disconcerting.
In the videos, the ‘Muslim Patrol’ is heard to say, “Alcohol banned. This is a Muslim area. Muslims patrol the area.”
One young woman, when confronted by the patrol, states, “I am appalled, this is Great Britain”, to which the authors of the video are heard to remark, “We don’t care. It’s not so Great Britain”.
Those involved are thought to be a part of an extremist network in East London and not linked to the wider Muslim community in the local area.
