A group of Muslim men praying on a beach in broad daylight on Mashes Sands Beach in Wakulla County, Florida, has set the town on edge, with even a local sheriff candidate expressing worry those in clothing considered immodest by Shariah law standards could be in danger. “I’m raising the question of whether or not a group of military aged Muslim men … are praying on our beach, well label me whatever you want,” said Wakulla County Sheriff candidate Will Dance, WTXL reported.

“The reason I brought this up is because my daughters use that beach, my wife uses that beach and gentlemen, under Sharia Law, the cutoff shorts and T-shirts … that my family wears on that beach are considered offensive under Shariah and any Muslim man may carry out what he feels is fit punishment. And I’m sorry but that type of behavior cannot happen here. ”The scene of the praying Muslim men came to light when Wakulla County Commission Chairman Ralph Thomas walked by and snapped a picture, then posted it to his Facebook page with the text: “Walked up on this at Mashes Sands this evening! First time seeing this in Wakulla County.” CONTINUE
