Muslim Snow Patrol
Last week, we read & watched the horrible video about the homophobic and fanatical ‘Muslim Patrol‘ harassing residents in East London.
Now meet a different kind: the ‘Muslim Snow Patrol’.
In Newcastle a group of volunteers from the local Islamic Diversity Centre have banded together to help clear residential roads and drives.
Newcastle City Council provided them with gloves, shovels and grit, and directed them to areas most in need.
IDC director Abu Tayeb told Sky News:
[Residents] have been really appreciative of the work that we’re doing. They’ve been a bit surprised at why loads of bearded men have come and tried to help them clear their drives.
As Muslims we believe that it is our Islamic duty to look after our neighbours, especially in these very difficult conditions. We’re trying to remove some of those preconceptions people have about Islam and Muslims by showing that Muslims actually do good things and are trying to help our neighbours.
Meanwhile, Met Police say that two men have been arrested over the incidents in East London.
