A fundamentalist Islamic group wants to set up zones in Copenhagen where Islamic Sharia Law would be upheld
The group, The Call to Islam, belongs to a branch of Islam called Salafism, whose followers in Britain attempted to introduce similar Sharia zones in London in the summer of 2011. The group is led by the imam Abu Ahmed, who has taught several people subsequently linked to terrorist activities. The Call to Islam intends to start patrolling the Copenhagen neighborhood of Tingbjerg before extending into Nørrebro and eventually the whole of Denmark. Muslims found to be drinking and gambling would be reprimanded for breaking Islamic code.
