'Muslim patrol' handed ASBOs to cease public preaching on Shari'ah

'Muslim patrol' handed ASBOs to cease public preaching on Shari'ah

Categories: Latest News

Monday February 17 2014

The Daily Mail and Daily Express both cover the Anti-Social Behaviour Orders applied to three men involved in the so-called ‘Muslim patrols’ last January.

Jordan Horner, 20, Royal Barnes, 23, and Ricardo MacFarlane, 26, were jailed for a total of two years and ten months for their harassment of passers by in east London last year. The men were filmed harassing individuals and ‘enforcing morals’ by telling people to desist from drinking alcohol among other things.

The three men were served a five-year Asbo last week banning them from distributing material about Shari’ah law to the public, from meeting each other and from associating with Anjem Choudary, of Muslims Against Crusades.

The Daily Mail notes the conditions of the Asbo as ” the three men are banned from approaching people in public to promote Sharia Law, or distributing leaflets for their cause even if they are outside a mosque.”

It is the first time, since the introduction last December of the notion of Asbos against ‘radical preachers’ in the Taskforce on Tackling Radicalisation report, that the orders have been applied.
