A disturbing video has emerged of Muslim men terrorizing people on an east London street by screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’ and using a loudspeaker to project loud explosions sounds.
The Daily Mail has the report, citing the men as “protestors” but failing to expose what the protest was about exactly.
The Mail reports:
Two men repeatedly shouted Allahu Akbar into a microphone while playing gunshot sounds at volume on a speaker.
A witness, who asked not to be named said: ‘I was alarmed, I didn’t know what was going on. When someone shouts Allahu Akbar while playing gunshot sounds on a speaker it is deliberately trying to alarm.
‘There was a lot of commotion with a big group shouting and cheering whenever the men got closer with the speaker.’
Allahu Akbar translates from Arabic as ‘God is the greatest.’ The phrase has earned an unfortunate association with terrorism because extremists have been heard shouting it during recent attacks.
‘I have no idea what they were doing, but it was clearly some kind of protest,’ the witness said.
Reports suggest that the Met Police were made aware of the men and their actions but it is unclear if any investigation is underway.
One witness of the “protest” told the Mail that he was unsurprised to see such a thing occurring in London.
“I was alarmed at first but you come to expect things like that, it’s become commonplace in east London,” the witness said.
