- Combat 786
Combat 786 is a British gang with some Islamic theme operating in Bradford and Oldham. It views itself as an organisation to protect Muslims from attacks by neo-Nazis and skinheads and its name is a response to that of Combat 18, the gang it sees as its main enemy. 786 is the numerical value of the Arabic phrase at the beginning of the Noble Qur'an, Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim, meaning "In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful".
