Women who do not wear headscarves are being threatened with violence and even death by Islamic extremists intent on imposing sharia law on parts of Britain, it was claimed today.
Other targets of the 'Talibanesque thugs', being investigated by police in the Tower Hamlets area of London, include homosexuals.
Stickers have been plastered on public walls stating: 'Gay free zone. Verily Allah is severe in punishment'.This is how shar'ia law is imposed on non-Muslims. By making non-Muslims too scared for their safety to act like non-Muslims.
It is believed Muslim extremists are behind a spate of attacks being investigated by police, according to the Sunday Times.
An Asian woman who works in a pharmacy in east London was told to dress more modestly and wear a veil or the shop would be boycotted.When she went to the media to talk about the abuse she suffered, a man later entered the pharmacy and told her: 'If you keep doing these things, we are going to kill you'.
The 31-year-old, who is not a practising Muslim, said she has since been told to take holiday by the pharmacy owners and now fears she may lose her job.
She said: 'Why should I wear a hijab (headscarf) or burqa? I haven't done anything wrong.'
Other incidents reported include the placing of stickers across the white-minority borough which state it is a 'gay-free zone' and the daubing of paint on posters for clothing shop H&M featuring women in bikinis.
And this is where it must stop. There should be no tolerance among anyone in the US -- Muslim or non-Muslim -- for the imposition of a religious creed by force, especially one as morally and ethically objectionable as Islamism.
I found this story on Instapundit, where Professor Reynolds not-unreasonably opined, "Killin’ works both ways. Shame more people don’t recognize that." I hope he's not criticized as "uncivil" for that.
