Muslims who embarked on ‘Sharia Law patrols’ and ordered people to stop drinking alcohol will be prosecuted in Germany

A group of Islamic extremists who patrolled the streets of the city of Wuppertal in orange vests with the words ‘Sharia police’ can be tried for violating laws against wearing uniforms with political messages.

The Dusseldorf state court today reversed a lower court’s dismissal of the case after prosecutors appealed.

The group of nine men made headlines in 2014 when they attempted to establish ‘Sharia police’ in Wuppertal to enforce a strict interpretation of Islam.
