One woman who works at a pharmacy is being told to cover up, and after she talked to the media about her story, was threatened with death, according to the Daily Mail.  There are other examples of behaviors that indicate the 'London Taliban' is trying to make life uncomfortable for those who do not comply with Sharia:

"Tower Hamlets has a reputation for being a centre of Islamic extremism in London.

Recently it was revealed that Rich Dart, a middle-class former BBC worker, had converted to Islam and was living in Bow, east London in a £300,000 flat paid for by benefits.

Despite being unemployed, Mr Dart regularly attends Muslim rallies in which he was recently heard to say: 'When the Taliban defeat the allies we will establish sharia law and take the fight to the enemy.'

Before Christmas posters appeared in the borough claiming the religious festival was 'evil'.

The campaign's organiser was 27-year-old Abu Rumaysah, who once calledfor sharia law in Britain at a press conference held by hate preacher leader Anjem Choudary, the leader of banned militant group Islam4UK."
