Sharona Schwartz reports at the Blaze:
The German government says it is going to crack down on volunteer patrols known as "Shariah police" recently seen walking outside nightclubs and a city train station asking passersby not to drink alcohol and gamble.
"Sharia law is not tolerated on German soil," Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told the German newspaper Bild on Saturday. "Nobody can take it upon themselves to abuse the good name of the German police."
"The founder of the 'Shariah police' said the patrols aimed only to raise awareness in Wuppertal for strict Islamic traditions," the Blaze reports.
"These people’s intention is to provoke and intimidate and force their ideology," the Blaze quote Wuppertal Mayor Peter Jung as saying.
