ISLAMIC extremists bent on establishing Sharia law in Britain have threatened to kill women who do not cover their heads.

They have also posted signs warning of “gay-free” zones and defaced posters featuring bikini-clad models.

Hardline Muslims are feared to be imposing their values on others in Tower Hamlets, East London.

A non-Muslim Asian pharmacist in Whitechapel who wears western clothes said she was told to cover up with a hijab headscarf or face a boycott.

Later she claimed a second man told her: “If you keep doing these things we will kill you.” Police are investigating.

Borough Commander of Tower Hamlets Paul Rickett said: “Anyone found committing such acts will face criminal proceedings.”

MP Khalid Mahmood for Birmingham’s Perry Barr – where posters have been defaced – said: “These people must accept others.”

Firebrand Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary said: “They may say, ‘Sister, it’s obligatory to cover your hair’. But nobody’s going to say, ‘You are going to be killed’.”

In February a man got community service for threatening to kill his cousin if she didn’t cover her head.
