Video has surfaced of a group identifying itself as a “Muslim Patrol” harassing a man in East London, because it believed him to be gay.
The above clip, discovered by The Commentator, is prefaced by a logo announcing “Islam will dominate the world” and an anti-gay graphic. In it, unnamed members of the patrol make snide comments from off camera.
“Hello mate, don’t you know this is a Muslim area?” asks one member. “Why you dressed like that for?” Another shouts “Homosexual! Homosexual!”
When asked why they were bothering him, the group tells the man, “Because you’re walking through a Muslim area dressed like a fag. You need to get out of here.” A member also shout, “You’re gay mate, get out of here you bloody fag. Don’t stay around here anymore.”
The Muslim Patrol has posted several clips on its now-terminated YouTube page: One depict members defacing bus-shelter ads and another of them harassing people for drinking and dressing provocatively. “Several of the videos uploaded to the account have already been removed as they violated YouTube’s terms and conditions,” writes the Commentator. “One specifically states that YouTube deemed it intentionally ‘designed to bully, harass and threaten.’”
The clip above has been flagged as “potentially offensive or inappropriate.”
