Here is another example of a ‘peaceful’ Muslim trying to change an American town.
Abdullah Rashid is a 22-year-old Muslim who was originally a resident of Georgia before moving to Minnesota. Once he arrived at the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis it didn’t take long before he started pushing Sharia Law on the community, harassing the woman who weren’t dressed to his standards, meaning they were not wearing a hijab.
Reports have already surfaced regarding the town of Deerfield which is rumored to be completely under Sharia Law, and now this young man is attempting to impose what he calls “the civil part of the sharia law.”
The Star Tribune is reporting, A man trying to impose what he calls “the civil part of the sharia law” in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis has sparked anger among local residents and Muslim leaders.
Abdullah Rashid, 22, a Georgia native who moved to Cedar-Riverside last year, has been making the rounds in the Somali-dominated neighborhood, telling people not to drink, use drugs or interact with the opposite sex. If he sees Muslim women he believes are dressed inappropriately, he approaches them and suggests they should wear a jilbab, a long, flowing garment. And he says he’s recruiting others to join the effort.
Minneapolis police received reports in February from concerned residents who saw Rashid in a dark green uniform that said “Muslim Defense Force” and “Religious Police” and had two flags associated with ISIS and other terrorist groups.
In a recent interview, Rashid said he aims to turn Cedar-Riverside into a “Sharia-controlled zone” where Muslims are learning about the proper practices of Islam and that “non-Muslims are asked to respect” it.
“What he’s doing is wrong and doesn’t reflect the community at all,” said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
