An MP has complained after seeing a sign posted near a popular park warning dog-walkers to stay out of ‘Islamic areas’.
Labour Member of Parliament Jim Fitzpatrick alerted police and the local mayor about the sign after it was flagged up by one of the residents in his east London constituency.
The sign, which was spotted on the railings of Bartlett Park, reads: ‘Do not walk your dog here! Muslims do not like dogs. This is an Islamic area now.’
In his letter to recently re-elected Tower Hamlets Mayor Lutfur Rahman, the MP for Poplar and Limehouse said: ‘I have no idea whether this was posted by the EDL, Islamists or another organisation. Regardless, this is a highly divisive sign.
‘I am writing to request an investigation.
‘I would also like to know what the council is currently doing to prevent signs like this from appearing.’
