'Muslim Patrol' members jailed for imposing sharia law in London

London, Dec. 07 : Three members of a "Muslim Patrol" vigilante group have been jailed for harassing, intimidating and assaulting people in a bid to enforce Sharia law on the streets of east London.

A judge at the Old Bailey heard that 19-year old Jordan Horner, 26-year old Ricardo MacFarlane, and another 23-year-old man had terrorized British people several times in the last few months, the Guardian reports.

In a case, Horner and the 23-year-old man drove alongside Joshua Bilton and Anna Reddiford in Bethnal Green and yelled at them through a megaphone for letting go off each other's hands because they were in a Muslim area.

On 6 January 2013, Horner and MacFarlane attacked a group of men drinking in the streets of Shoreditch, the report added.

A week later, Horner and the 23-year-old man confronted another couple, Clare Coyle and Robert Gray, walking in the street in Stepney accusing Coyle of dressing inappropriately in a Muslim area and that she would be punished in "hellfire".
