This is a TRAIN WRECK waiting to happen. These people are just as extremist as the EDL. Islam does not enforce 'Shariah' on non-Muslims, talk about uneducated in Fiqh and Shariah. Islam has always allowed non-Muslims to follow their own laws and yes have their own stores and drink alcohol and this in an ISLAMIC Caliphate, not a non-Muslim country. These people need to go study. It's just ridiculous....

Muslim Anti-Alcohol Protest in Brick Lane: Hundreds to Target London Revellers
IBT Times



A planned march by Muslims against the sale and consumption of alcohol in the hip heart of east London has drawn "overwhelming support" from around the country, organisers have claimed.

Protesters intend to protest on Friday in Brick Lane, Tower Hamlets, by targeting shops selling alcohol in a street famous for its trendy bars and curry restaurants.

The demonstrators said that selling booze was un-Islamic and caused social problems.

But critics fear that the event by the Shariah Project will be yet another source of division in the borough.

In September, Tower Hamlets witnessed the anti-Muslim English Defence League trying to march against Islam. Last week, three men who were part of a bogus "Muslim patrol" were jailed for threatening and beating up people they claimed had breached strict Islamic rules on alcohol and dress.

Abu Rumaysah, spokesman for the Waltham Forest-based Shariah Project, claimed that groups of Muslims would come from as far away as the Midlands to take part in the demonstration.

He forecast a turnout of "hundreds" instead of fewer than the 50 first expected. Police would be surprised at the scale of the turnout, he predicted.

Rumaysah, 30, told IBTimes UK: "We've had an overwhelming response from people supporting us from all over the country. Lots of them say they are coming and we will have groups from Luton, Birmingham, Derby and Leicester. There's also a big Muslim community in Tower Hamlets, so there should be a good turnout."

He insisted it would be a peaceful protest and rejected accusations that it could create disharmony.

Shariah the solution

"It's not fair to say this will cause division," said Rumaysah. "The most damaging thing is the alcohol. If you go in to the hospitals you can see the damage it does. This is a rally which is happening because we see the shariah in the UK as the solution for many of the fundamental problems the community faces.

"We are not going to be fighting anybody. But it would not stop us from protesting peacefully if some people did oppose us."

Politicians in the borough have condemned the event as "provocative". The leader of the Labour group on Tower Hamlets Council said that the march threatened to divide communities in the borough, which is one of the most diverse in the country.

"Everyone has a right to peaceful protest but I urge the Shariah Project to think carefully about the impact their actions will have," said Cllr Sirajul Islam.

"While Muslims may choose to abstain from alcohol, it is not right to forcefully push one view upon others. Provocative attempts to push a radical shariah agenda will serve only to widen the divide between our communities," he said.

Tower Hamlets council is working with police on a response to the march. A spokesman told IBTimes UK: "We are in conversation with the police to preserve community cohesion. We support community cohesion and would not want the actions of a small group to impact on this."

There is a big Muslim community in tower hamlets, organisers have purposely set the protest for Friday so worshippers will get caught in the cross fire.


No one's gonna turn up but all the Jummah attendees are going to be held responsible, ending up with a ban and closure of masjids in the area, it's a trendy area which makes it massively expensive so many businesses would love to move in.

And who is this shariah project? where'd hey come from? when did they form? how many members do they have? what qualifications do they hold?

Sounds like a load of crap stirring to me.

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Apart from the parity Muslim & non-Muslim there is a thing, which is commonly present in every human, is humanity, a bad thing is bad for all similarly a good thing is good for all, irrespective from the bounds of religion. Alcohol might have benefits but the main thing is usefulness of a thing and from that point of view its benefits are minor than its defects. Thus, it should be abolished.

And you know my problems with these guys? 1. In most cases, there is nothing special about their social relations with people to entice others. Didn't most of the reverts during prophet's (pbuh) time accepted Islam because of his good characters? 2. They know that only themselves subscribe to their views but they tell all that world they speak on behalf of every Muslim.

You are absolutely right and for that reason these people do not need to use a religious platform in convincing the lawmakers.
