Extra police patrols over ‘Islamic area’ anti-dog signs in Tower Hamlets
clear

This story has reached the national press since this morning; this is the update from the East London Advertiser.

Police are running extra patrols near Bartlett Park in Poplar after a sign warning dog-walkers to stay out of “Islamic areas” was discovered by a resident on Wednesday. An investigation is underway after calls from Poplar and Limehouse MP Jim Fitzpatrick MP in a letter to Tower Hamlets police.

The sign reads: “Do not walk your dog here! Muslims do not like dogs. This is an Islamic area now.”

A police spokesman said they remain open-minded about the motive behind the signs.

In his letter, Mr Fitzpatrick said: “I have no idea whether this was posted by the EDL, Islamists or another organisation. Regardless, this is a highly divisive sign.” Regular readers will recall that the 'Gay Free Zone' stickers round in and around Whitechapel were first blamed on the EDL. There was silence when the man convicted for the criminal damage was one Mohammed Hasnath.  Ditto the painting of black burkas on advertisments for swimwear. The culprit then was Hasnath again and his mate Muhammed Tahir. 

Borough Commander Dave Stringer said: “Bartlett Park does not have any history of community tension.

A Tower Hamlets Council spokeswoman said: “We have been alerted to a fly-poster stuck on a sign post near Bartlett Park. “We have removed it and are liaising with the police to investigate this alarming and divisive poster. The council actively promotes the No Place for Hate campaign whereby people of different faiths, cultures, lifestyles and backgrounds live in harmony.
