The Daily Mail has today published an article regarding a poster campaign to enforce sharia law in parts of the UK, giving yet more unwarranted publicity and exposure to the disturbing antics of Islam4UK.
The article draws attention to a number of posters that have been plastered around certain local areas warning of a “sharia controlled zone” in which alcohol; gambling; music and concerts; drugs and smoking; porn and prostitution are all “banned”.
The article states that “Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility for the scheme, saying he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK and ‘put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term’ ”.
The article reports that over the past few weeks streets in the London Boroughs of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Newham have been targeted with the offensive posters.
Choudary also tells the DM that, “We are going to put the events in Oslo on the agenda. We are going to be marching and addressing this issue. It is a whole new scenario now. The Muslim community needs to be vigilant. There is an undercurrent against Islam.”
Choudary is indeed right about the undercurrent against Islam in Europe, which has been manifested in its most extreme form in the deadly attacks in Norway committed by a self-proclaimed anti-Islam right-wing terrorist. However, Choudary would do well to acknowledge that it is exactly this kind of activity; his wild antics and megalomania in imposing so called “sharia-controlled zones” and the irresponsible conduct of sections of our media in giving him the publicity he craves, that produces the sort of scaremongering that feeds far right prejudice.
