Years ago, Mark Steyn told me that in certain parts of Britain, non-Muslim women wore the veil because it kept them from getting harassed in the streets by Muslims. Apparently, some of the Islamic radicals in Britannia have decided to formalize the arrangement.
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’.
…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.’
…Firebrand Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary said that he was aware of individuals who would speak up if they saw a Muslim woman without a headscarf, but insisted they were only giving advice about their views of Islam.
He said no threats would be made and described the allegations of threats of death as ‘completely ridiculous’.
He said: ‘There are groups who propagate Islam, and if they see a Muslim woman without a hijab they may say “sister, it’s obligatory that you cover your hair”.
‘It’s an individual intervention to propagate Islam. For non-Muslims, they may point out to them that women are being exploited in the West.
‘It’s about telling people about the preference of covering up, but nobody’s going to say “you are going to be killed”.’
Of course, ‘nobody’s going to say “you are going to be killed”‘ — except it’s already happening. Of course, they’re just “giving advice,” but if women didn’t feel threatened and harassed, they wouldn’t comply.
Notice a pattern that seems to take place with incidents like these?
Islamists try to get their way, they threaten violence if need be, then they deny they did any such thing. The next steps are claims that this is all “Islamophobia” and that they’re the real victims, that is if they don’t simply deny that Muslims trying to enforce their religion on the populace have anything at all to do with Islam.
