‘Muslim Patrol’ jailed for harassing couple holding hands and men drinking in a bid to enforce Sharia law in East London
Jordan Horner, Ricardo Macfarlane and another man sentenced to jail for 68 weeks, 12 months and 24 weeks respectively
Islamic extremists forced couples to stop holding hands in East London
They also began a fight with men who were drinking on the street
Old Bailey hears that Horner, 19, was a drug user before finding Islam
Three members of a so-called ‘Muslim Patrol’ were today jailed at the Old Bailey for repeatedly trying to enforce Sharia law in East London.
Jordan Horner and another Islamic extremist told one couple they could not hold hands while walking down the street, because it was in a ‘Muslim area’.
The radicals also attacked a group of men drinking in the road, and told a woman she would face ‘hell fire’ because of the way she was dressed.
Horner, 19, Ricardo MacFarlane, 36, and a 23-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons were sentenced to 68 weeks, 12 months and 24 weeks in prison respectively.
The teenage convert shouted: ‘Let go of each other’s hands. This is a Muslim area!’ – but the couple initially assumed it was a joke.
They stopped holding hands after the men repeated the message – and when they started again, the car blocked their way until they let go.
Two weeks later, Horner and MacFarlane attacked men drinking in Shoreditch, shouting: ‘Kill the non-believers.’
Horner then punched two of the group, hitting James Forward in the jaw and knocking out Patrick Kavanagh with a sucker punch to the head.
On January 13, Horner and the 23-year-old harassed another couple, Clare Coyle and Robert Gray, as they were walking in Stepney – accusing Miss Coyle of being a ‘slag’.
