Skottland Yard etterlyser en rekke hendelser siste tiden i Whitechapel der britiske kvinner har blitt trakassert med utsagn som ”nakne dyr uten selvrespekt” med beskjed om at de ikke har noe å gjøre i området nær moskeen, East London Mosque, melder en rekke britiske medier. Politiet etterlyste spesifikt en homofil mann som ble trakassert og jaget ut av Whitechapel. Han meldte seg for politiet i går, og fem unge menn er så langt arrestert.
Man undre seg: hva blir det neste?
Police are trying to trace a man who was the victim of homophobic abuse by «Muslim vigilantes» in this offensive
The disturbing footage, from a group calling themselves Muslim Patrol, shows the gang abusing the man who was walking by himself in Whitechapel, East London.
Officers from Scotland Yard, who are investigating a string of incidents in East London where members of the public were harrassed, have appealed for the man in the video to contact them.
Muslim leaders have condemned the thugs’ behaviour.
The gang uploaded another video called «The Truth About Saturday Night», in which white women were called «naked animals with no self-respect».
In the latest video, hooded thugs shout at the man, who appears to be wearing make-up, before one tells him: «Mate, don’t you know this is a Muslim area. What’s wrong with your face?»
Another then shouts: «This is a Muslim area get out of here. Get out here you b—– f–. You can’t stay round here anymore.»
Detective Chief Inspector Wendy Morgan from Tower Hamlets borough said: «The Met takes such homophobic behaviour very seriously.
«This man is a crucial witness in the investigation and would encourage him and anyone else with information relating to this incident to make contact in confidence as soon as possible.»
Extra police patrols are being mounted across east London to reassure the public.
Two men, aged 22 and 19, have been arrested in connection with the investigation.
The pair were arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and public order offences and were bailed to return to an east London police station in February and March pending further inquiries.
