Wuppertal, Germany – “Shariah Police”
German police have initiated several criminal investigations into the group and have increased the police presence in the downtown area.
A photo has been circulating social media showing individuals wearing “Shariah Police” vests.
Wuppertal – They walk at night through the center of Wuppertal (NRW), wearing orange vests with the word “Shariah Police”.
The self-proclaimed Sharia police act as faith–police.
The suspected Islamists speak to youths on the street, they invite them to sermons, they want to recruit to Salafism. And they want to impose their rules of conduct:
► “No Alcohol”
► “No Gambling“
► “No music or concerts“
► ‘No porn or prostitution’
► “No drugs or smoking“
The article reports that German police have initiated several criminal investigations into the group and have increased the police presence in the downtown area.
Below is a video taken of the “Shariah Police” in action – minus the vests or any visible German police presence:
COMMENT/ANALYSIS: Other news reports indicate that the Wuppertal prosecutor was planning on charging up to eleven individuals in violation of the Breach of Assembly Act . Unlike some other European countries, Germany regularly investigates/prosecutes Salafist activities that are viewed as a threat to the German constitution. Several of the 9/11 attackers were identified as worshiping at a Hamburg, Germany mosque. Despite the efforts, it is a growing problem that is not likely to disappear – especially with some German politicians leaning towards appeasement.
