The controversial law allows authorities to shut down mosques, carry out on-the-spot identity checks and expand border controls. Under the law, authorities are allowed to shut down mosques or other places of worship if preachers are suspected of spreading radical ideas and theories. Suspected jihadist sympathisers can also be confined to their neighbourhoods without the approval of a judge. Police can also carry out more on-the-spot identity checks and expand border controls to areas around international train stations, ports and airports.
In Denmark a group calling itself Call to Islam has declared parts of the country to be “sharia-controlled zones” and its “morality police” confront drinkers and partygoers. In France right-wing vigilantes ran Roma families out of a Marseilles estate and burnt down their camp. In Spain nine Islamist extremists recently kidnapped a woman, tried her for adultery under sharia and attempted to execute her before she managed to escape.
Hardline Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary today said two followers jailed for attacking non-Muslims “deserve a pat on the back”. Convert Jordan Horner, 19, and Ricardo MacFarlane, 26, admitted being part of a “Muslim Patrol”, a group of vigilantes opposing Western culture on the streets of the East End. They told one couple they could not hold hands because it was “a Muslim area” and said a young woman would face “hellfire” because of the way she dressed. Mr Choudary said the men regularly attended his lectures, adding: “Essentially, they didn’t do anything wrong.
LONDON — Thousands of Muslims on Saturday fought among themselves and clashed with police during a march to demand that Britain change its blasphemy laws to allow them to challenge the novel "The Satanic Verses" in court. Police said 84 people were arrested and six police officers were injured during the march, which erupted in a scuffle before the Parliament building. An estimated 20,000 demonstrators waved banners denouncing author Salman Rushdie and shouted slogans such as "Rushdie must die!" as they began their march in Hyde Park.
Novelist Salman Rushdie has criticized protests against the US-made anti-Islam film in various Muslim countries and said that he is not bothered about new threats to his life in the wake of the controversy.
From Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten's cartoon(2005) depicting the Prophet Mohammed as a terrorist with a bomb in 2005 to Charlie Hebdo and Texas shootings(2015), we look at how the cartoons row has developed.
Religious slaughter techniques practised by Jews and Muslims are cruel and should be ended, says a scientific assessment from the Government's animal welfare advisers.
The Farm Animal Welfare Council says that slitting the throats of the animals most commonly used for meat, chickens, without stunning, results in "significant pain and distress". The committee, which includes scientific, agricultural and veterinary experts, is calling for the Government to launch a debate with Muslim and Jewish communities to end the practice.
“There are accounts of Sharia patrols questioning and even attacking” British citizens. Gangs intimidate and pester “those who are complying with British law but not their own.” “Muslim grooming gangs prey upon kafir, namely non-Muslim girls, and regard them as legitimate targets to violate.”
“Many, if not most, state schools in our big cities compel halal-only menus to be offered, with no alternatives to their children.” Rather than serve bacon, “Holiday Inns now routinely observe Islamic dietary laws” and supermarkets sell insufficiently labelled halal meat. “It would seem consumer choice must now bow before the writ of the Imam.” (They were quick to allow options for consumers who wanted to deviate from a traditional British diet, but they refuse to consider those that wish to return to one.)
British universities hosted 110 events featuring extremist speakers in the last academic year, 2016/17, with the highest proportion taking place in London institutions, a report has found.
The extremist events listed were overwhelmingly organised by Islamic societies and groups and speakers included former Guantanamo Bay detainees and Islamists. Former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson, who was the only “far right” speaker on the list, spoke at two universities.
