Muslim group to march in Brick Lane against drinking and selling of alcohol
by Adam Barnett
A Muslim group will march through Brick Lane on Friday to campaign against the drinking and selling of alcohol, which they say is "sinful" under Islamic law.
Members of The Shariah Project say drinking alcohol is "strictly prohibited" and hope to highlight the ills of alcohol with a rally after Friday prayers on December 13.
Spokesman Abu Rumaysah, 30, said: "There's a lot of problems in the area like anti-social behaviour caused by drinking and a lot of the Muslims are involved in selling alcohol in their shops."
