#INTOLERANCE: East London park sign warns dog-walkers to stay away as it's a MUSLIM AREA

Muslim poster in Bartlett Park saying Do not walk your dog here! Muslims do not like dogs

Police in East London have launched an investigation after a sign appeared at a public park demanding pet owners to stay away because "Muslims do not like dogs".

The sign appeared in Bartlett Park in Poplar on Thursday and states: "Do not walk your dog here! Muslims do not like dogs. This is an Islamic area now."

Police were called in by a dog-walker who informed a local politician. 

Labour MP Jim Fitzpatrick has now asked police to find out if it was put up by "religious zealots" or a far-right group such as the English Defence League (EDL).

"The question is whether it was put up by the EDL to be provocative or by religious zealots to be racist," the Poplar and Limehouse MP told London's Evening Standard.

He added: "Whichever side it was ought not to be able to get away with it and whoever's responsible ought to pack it in."

The sign has since been removed and police have increased their presence on the ground in the area.

Poplar is part of the London borough of Tower Hamlets, home to large immigrant populations from South Asia and elsewhere.

Similar incidents have been reported from the area before with 'Muslim patrols' targeting people out socializing and drinking as well as women who are "inappropriately" dressed.
