Muslim women who feel threatened after the weekend's terror, now have a secret hotline to vigilante groups made by Muslim men.
After last weekend's acts of terrorism in Copenhagen, many Muslim women have reported unprovoked assaults on social media.
But instead of calling the police, they can now call a group of Muslim men, who will be an alternative to Danish police, the Danish online newspaper Metroxpress reports.
The spokesman for the group in Copenhagen, calling themselves 'Protect your sisters', tells Metroxpress that there are hundreds of men who are ready for action if a woman is assaulted.
- We are not a gang of thugs. We are peaceful Muslims who do not wish anyone any harm, regardless of what they believe. If the police can not figure out how to do their job, then we must help them, he says.
The group has 1,545 members at the moment.
If the offender is still in place when the group arrives, they will make a citizen's arrest, the spokesman said:
- If she is being physically assaulted, he will be assaulted too, then there will be made a citizen's arrest and called for the police.
The group was created after the terrorist attacks in Paris in early January, and according to the spokesman, there are similar groups across the country.
- There have been countless examples of hate crimes against Muslims, and it was intensified after what happened in France. We're talking about innocent, defenseless women who did not do anything to anyone, says the group's spokesman, who claims to have knowledge of ten assaults since last weekend.
"Replacing" the police with Muslim vigilante gangs is probably the most scary thought imaginable, and hopefully the police will take action against this stupid and dangerous idea.
