Police investigate 'Shariah police' carnival float
Following allegations of racism over an asylum seeker Panzer tank carnival float in Germany, police in Austria are now investigating a similar accusation over a Shariah police carnival float.
The purple-coloured vehicle was one of 30 floats in the carnival procession in the Lower Austrian municipality of Maissau and was covered with slogans described as racist.
These included a sign saying 'Shariah Police' as well as a spoof 'Red Bull Gives You Wings' slogan - which had been adapted to 'Islam Gives You Wings'. The number plate had 'Asylum 88' on it - the number 88 is often used as a code by neo-Nazis for 'Heil Hitler'.
