'Muslim Patrol' vigilantes attempt to control London streets

Sumaiya Karim is 16 years oldSumaiya Karim is 16 years oldThe Commentator has found evidence of self-styled 'vigilantes' patrolling streets of London, accosting women and vandalising public property. The group, which is attempting to cordon off 'Muslim areas', has dubbed itself 'Muslim Patrol'.
 
So far, the group has posted two videos to its new YouTube account which was set up in December 2012. The first video shows the destruction of advertising and vandalising of bus shelters, both displaying images of H&M push-up bras. The second video sees the 'vigilantes' approaching and harrassing members of the public for either consuming alcohol, dressing 'inappropriately', or being inebriated near a mosque.
Several of the videos uploaded to the account have already been removed as they violated YouTube's terms and conditions. One specifically states that YouTube deemed it intentionally "designed to bully, harrass and threaten".
 
The footage is likely to have come from East London, where 'Shariah zones' were set up last year. The new tactic of intimidation is said to appall local residents, who will likely find the 'patrols' disconcerting.
In the videos, the 'Muslim Patrol' is heard to say, "Alcohol banned. This is a Muslim area. Muslims patrol the area." 
 
One young woman, when confronted by the patrol, states, "I am appalled, this is Great Britain", to which the authors of the video are heard to remark, "We don't care. It's not so Great Britain". 
 
Those involved are thought to be a part of an extremist network in East London and not linked to the wider Muslim community in the local area.
