Local residents have been reluctant to contact the real police as the neighbourhood has a high proportion of Somali migrants who are told by local Islamic leaders that “this is the right thing”.
“Abdullah Rashid, 22, a Georgia native who moved to Cedar-Riverside last year, has been making the rounds in the Somali-dominated neighbourhood, telling people not to drink, use drugs, or interact with the opposite sex,” reports Star Tribune. “If he sees women he believes are dressed inappropriately, he approaches them and suggests they should wear a jilbab, a long, flowing garment. And he says he’s recruiting others to join the effort.”
And this is not the only place there are “Sharia Patrols”. In London’s East end, non-Muslim couples are routinely harassed for holding hands or kissing in public, people who have been drinking (or have alcohol with them) are accosted and sometimes beaten. And women who dress in Western styles are harassed, shouted at and called “whores”.
Rashid has the help of at least 10 other young men who assist him in persecuting anyone who is not following Islamic doctrine in the area.
According to mad world news:
Of course, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is publicly condemning what Rashid is doing when the truth is CAIR is notorious as a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. They’d love nothing more than a total takeover of America; it’s the goal of all radical Islamists.
“We’re against his ideas,” said Abdighani Ali, Imam of the local mosque. “We always encourage our community to be a part of the society.” Well, that statement raises a lot of questions, like why is it taught in the Quran to have nothing to do with infidels (non-Muslims).
Quran (5:51) – “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other, and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”
Rashid was not acting alone, either. He said he has enlisted a group of 10 men, ages 18 to 25, to help him patrol the area. In a recent interview, Rashid said he aims to turn Cedar-Riverside into a “sharia-controlled zone” where Muslims are learning about the proper practices of Islam and “non-Muslims are asked to respect” it.
