Muslim Converts Want to Impose Sharia on Great Britain, Threaten to Stab non-Muslims

 

 

By Aiman Reyaz, New Age Islam

November 13, 2013

Early morning, two Muslim converts joined a ‘Muslim Patrol’ to impose Sharia Law. They threatened to stab anyone on the streets of East London if they see anything ‘un-Islamic’.

Ricardo McFarlane, 36, and a 23-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons, joined convert Jordan Horner, 19, of Walthamstow, east London, and they preach, propagate and when need be, force people against things like alcohol, photographs of women etc.

These men with a mission, without any fear of administration, go to persons on the street, in a group and tell them “this is a Muslim area and you are not allowed to have alcohol in this area”.

On one occasion they went to a lady who was carrying beer and they said the same thing “this is a Muslim area and you are not allowed to have alcohol in this area”; then she retorts “I don’t believe in this” (meaning Islam). One of these thugs says brazenly “we don’t care whether you believe it or not”.

The lady tries to show some confidence in front of this gang: “we have a right- it is Great Britain”. But alas the number’s game forces her to throw the alcohol and leave the place!

The 23 year old man says “you need to control this area and you need to forbid these people from dressing like this and exposing themselves up outside the mosque”

One man was walking and by chance there was a mosque, then these members of the ‘Muslim Patrol’ rush up to him and force him to run away from that area: “you are not allowed to be near the mosque, do you understand what we are saying? This is a Muslim Patrol. Move away from the mosque NOW and don’t come back” (sic). Ricardo McFarlane says “we don’t respect those who disobey God”.

Not just alcoholics are being targeted but gays and women wearing skirts are openly ridiculed and harassed. The CNN report says “only a handful of men are involved in this self-styled patrol, 5 have been arrested on suspicion of harassment.”

The number of people involved in this patrol is only a handful and many have already been arrested, but the majority of Muslims living in these parts of East London want nothing to do with these vigilantists whatsoever.

At the local mosque many Muslims are appalled by this and condone these acts. They say that these things stir up hatred. Salman Farsi, East London Mosque says “this has done a huge amount of damage to the Muslim community and it is, no doubt, going to increase Islamophobia”

The police authorities have been beefed up and are taking tough actions. DCI Wendy Morgan, Metropolitan Police says “We will not accept such behaviour, it is unacceptable”. But these activities are not just contained in Britain: in Denmark, an Islamist from another so-called Muslim Patrol stands menacingly outside a polling station vowing to stop Muslims from voting.  In Belgium, a group of extremists Muslims want existing Sharia courts, which handle family matters to be expanded to cover criminal matters, including un-Islamic behaviour in Muslim areas. In Spain, a radical Salafi group wants a ban on pet dogs from public transport and Muslim areas; shockingly many dogs have been poisoned.

The Telegraph of UK says: Horner, who changed his name to Jamal Uddin, was jailed for six weeks in July this year for beating up a photographer and causing £3,000 of damage to a car in an attack in Walthamstow, east London. The 23 year-old has previous convictions for theft and handling stolen goods prior his conversion to Islam and also for using threatening words and behaviour on April 2012.

Another site further elaborates: “Last month Horner, who wants to bring Sharia law to Britain, pleaded guilty to two charges of assault and two charges of using threatening words and behaviour...the prosecution accepted please from Mac Farlane to affray and the 23 year-old to using threatening words and behaviour. Both men refused to stand in the dock as they pleaded guilty...”

Islam is totally against such behaviour. Not only does the Quran give freedom of religion but it also gives freedom to live life in anyway one chooses. The Quran however does say:

“And let there be [arising] from you a nation (community) inviting to [all that is] good, en-joining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful.” (3:104)

This does not mean that you will force people to accept your ways of life because the Quran clearly says:

“There should be no compulsion in religion; Truth stands out clear from error” (2:256);

 “And if your Lord willed, all who are in the earth would have believed together. Would you then compel people until they become believers? It is not for any soul to believe except by the permission of Allah (Qur'an 10:99-100)”;

“To you be your way and to me mine” (109:6)

The worrying question is how long moderate Muslims will keep quiet. These fanatics are not only souring the relations between Muslims and non-Muslims but they are also maligning the name of Islam, which in turn forces more moderate Muslims to fall into these hard-line groups because of the negative response from the members of non-Muslims community. This is a vicious cycle and unless the moderate Muslims raise their voice against such groups and activities, this cycle will continue.

  • We have to fight all Islamo-fascist and regressive trends, not just Wahhabis. Our focus should be to develop a coherent and positive narrative of Moderate Islam. Let us espouse the values that we fervently believe in, namely no coercion or compulsion in religion, rejection of violence,  respect for the beliefs of other faiths and other sects as long as they do not try to force their beliefs on us, support for democratic/secular forms of government,  gender equality, equal rights for minorities, promotion of secular education, promotion of individual freedoms including freedom of speech, and rejection of exclusivism and supremacism. Let our message be a positive message.

  • Dear Gholam Ghaus/ Sultan Shahin Sahiban,

    No one on expel any Muslim sect from the faith of Islam, as this can only lead to the old ball game of mutual takfir. The only way to isolate the wahabis or their fascist faction is to parallel them with a sect that would have been expelled from Islam had there been an Islamic Caliphate. And there is sufficient ground for this as expounded in my article on this highly sensitive theme.

    Putting our feet on the ground, any suggestion to treat all wahabis as Kharijites - having been expelled from the faith of Islam is simply a wishful thinking or day dreaming like a herd of goat gloating over the idea of driving a tiger from the forest.

    Apart from their financial clout, international standing as a leading and resourceful Muslim country, most prestigious position as the custodians of Kaba and major US ally, global preacher / madrassa network and oil revenues,  the wahabis are there for almost two hundred years and in the eyes of the world, they are a puritanical Islamic sect, though the learned are fully aware of their theo-facism. Besides, the Muslim world is already bleeding for almost 14 centuries on the Shia-Sunni divide. They recently had the Ahmadis expelled from Islam. Now having yet another institutional divide between wahabis and non-wahabis can hardly serve any purpose and if anything, cause more conflict, chaos and bloodshed in Islam.

    Perhaps the Muslim intelligentsia should launch a global face-book movement towards deconstructing sectarianism rather than creating new divisions.

    My proposal is to treat the fanatics - mostly of wahabi origin as neo-Kharijites or the Kharijite Wahabis rather than stereotyping all the wahabis the way the Western media and those ignorant of the divergence in Islam lump all the Muslims as terrorist sympathizers/ potential terrorists.

  • In this case the real fault lies with those preachers,be them from Indian sub continent or from Arab lands,who preach day out and day in and do covert people to Islam but not give them true picture of it. I think the political interpretation of Islam, which first emanated from indian subcontinant and from Egypt also,is the main culprit of these awful things. Because in this interpretation they convince people that it is their obligation to establish the rule of Sharia,irrespective of circumstances. That is why people are often be deceived with this false interpretation in absolute terms,so they don't care whether the country is a Muslim country or a non-Muslim land.I think to combate this evil we should be wary , careful and resisting towards this false propagation of our faith the world over and render its true picture to the people.

  • I fully endorse Mr. Sultan Shahin “Yes, Wahhab's progeny run a dictatorial state protected by  the world's sole super power. They can do what they like but why should we non-Saudi citizens be intimidated. Just because some Saudi agent will call us sectarian, so we should start calling Wahhabis Kharjis, because, then there would be no one to call us sectarian. why. would there not be innocent kharjis who would not know what kharjism stood for. Denouncing Kharjism is as much sectarianism, on that level, from that argument, as calling wahhabis  Wahhabi”.

    As Mr. Muhammad Yunus always quotes the book “Ghunit al-talebin written by Abdul Quader Jilani Ghause Azam (ra), while many Wahhabi agents regard this book as sectarian. Should we or Mr. Yunus stop reading or quoting this book? No, never.

  • "As long as the Muslims carry the present day's veritable Kharijites aboard their ship, the world will regard them as their sympathizer. It is time to jettison them off. "
    But Yunus Saheb, how can we jettison them, if we can't even call them by their names. Kharjites are gone for almost a millennium. Today'a Wahhabis do share some characteristics with them, like their takfirism and their propensity for indiscriminate violence, but they criticise Kharjis and oppose them. But Wahhabis are Wahhabis; they are running a Wahhabi kingdom, based on ideas of ibne- abdul wahhab and ibn-taimiya. If we are so afraid of them to call them by names, how can we jettison them, you call them as modern Kharjis, they don't respond. How will you jettison them? 
    Call them by their real name. Don't be afraid of being called by their apologists as sectarian. the biggest crime of sectarianism is practised by them. They say, their should be only  one interpretation of Islam. OURS. This is the biggest sectarianism. God has given us all different minds. We think and interpret God's commands differently. Why should one Mulla come and say My Way Or High Way. Who is he.
     Yes,  Wahhab's progeny run a dictatorial state protected by  the world's sole super power. They can do what they like but why should we non-Saudi citizens be intimidated. Just because some Saudi agent will call us sectarian, so we should start calling Wahhabis Kharjis, because, then there would be no one to call us sectarian. why. would there not be innocent kharjis who would not know what kharjism stood for. Denouncing Kharjism is as much sectarianism, on that level, from that argument, as calling wahhabis  Wahhabi.

     I know there are wahhabis who do not know what wahhab and his mentor ibn-taimiya stood for. it is for them to worry why the world considers them extremists and terrorists. And if they are truly illiterate, born into wahhabidom, they will not even know what the world thinks of them. good for them.

    My point is simply we cannot jettison Wahhabis, ahl-hadeesees, etc. if we do not even have the courage to call them by their correct names. They do share some characteristics with Kharjis, as they share some characteristics with us mainstream Muslims, but they are followers of Ibn-Taimiya and Md Abdul Wahhab. Let us call them by their correct names, ifwe want to jettison them.

  • Sharia is an anachronism and must be dropped. Laws are best formulated by contemporary men, keeping in mind the Quranic requirements that our laws must be just, equitable, fair and based on common sense.

  • dear Varsha Sharma - 11/13/2013 9:10:19 AM
    some wahabi may be instrumental behind this conversion. what will you say then?

    By rational mohammed yunus - 11/13/2013 10:45:25 AM



  • Mr. Aiman Reyaz,  Please don't blame it on Muslim converts and bring the real criminals, Wahabis, who brainwash majority of new Muslims who embrace Islam because of its beautiful doctrines and peaceful teachings. Go deeper into the subject and bring out the truth! Be clear, unequivocal, and  unambiguous about the Wahabi religious extremism penetrating in new converts, if there any. Always, trace the origins of the problem, you will get the right conclusions as well as solutions!

  • As long as the Muslims carry the present day's veritable Kharijites aboard their ship, the world will regard them as their sympathizer. It is time to jettison them off.
     
    The moderates are detached, scared and unsure and decline even to post a comment on the following call to expose the true character of the terrorists based on irrefutable historical precedent. How can such scared and unsure people raise any voice??   

    Call for international Fatwas to declare the terrorists who advocate wanton killing of innocent people in the name of Islam as ‘Terrorist Apostates’, like the Kharijites of early Islam.
