Something I heard on the radio overnight.
It seems that the Muslim, Sheikh and (possibly) Hindu communities in Southall, West London, have banded together to protect their Mosques, Temples and other holy places (as well too as, to a lesser extent, their shops and homes).
While I am not keen on vigilantism, these people have been told they are on 'Holy Duty' so they are not allowed to use force except in self defence. I really do applaud this show of religious unity. It is one of the few good things to come out of this mess.
