You know we’re in trouble when a Muslim has to tell the dhimmis to stop acting like dhimmis:
A [M]uslim leader has accused the police of failing to tackle Asian gangs suspected of prostituting young white girls. Officers are accused of being “over cautious” when investigating Muslim criminals because they fear being branded racist. Last night Mohammed Shafiq, director of the Ramadhan Foundation, said the police were differentiating between criminals on the basis of race. He claimed, driven by fear of race riots in places like Blackburn and Oldham, officers were “overtly sensitive” and not clamping down on the sordid practice.
His controversial comments in this week’s Panorama reignite a massively controversial issue which exploded over a Channel 4 documentary in 2004. That programme which claimed Asian men in Bradford were grooming under age white girls for prostitution was pulled from C4’s schedules. This was because police claimed at the time that it could provoke racial violence during the local election campaign.
Now the BBC is to risk the wrath of police officials and campaigners by airing a programme which will look at the same issue. Speaking as part of the Panorama investigation, which airs tomorrow (Thursday), Shafiq said: “I think the police are overcautious on dealing with this issue openly because they fear being branded racist and I think that is wrong.” “These are criminals they should be treated as criminals. They are not Asian criminals, they are not Muslim criminals, they are not white criminals. They are criminals and they should be treated as criminals…I am the only Muslim leader in the UK that speaks up against this sort of thing and I do it because these teenage girls are somebody’s sisters and they are somebody’s daughters. I have got two daughters and I wouldn’t want that to happen to my daughters. If there is a drug dealer grooming a white teenager into prostitution then I don’t want the police service or local authority not to be open about it.”
He just said, “I AM THE ONLY MUSLIM LEADER IN THE UK that speaks up against this sort of thing.” So there you have it from the horse’s mouth: they’re basically all like that. Moreover, we’re not hearing the Muslim community at large demanding that their “leaders” speak out against a political correctness that imperils their own daughters.
Last year there was another Muslim who rolled his eyes at extreme dhimmitude when Scotland schools issued an advisory against “staring” at Muslims, as it could be considered a form of Islamophobia:
Osama Saeed, a spokesman for the Muslim Association of Britain, accused officials of going too far. “There are far more serious elements of Islamophobia. People look at all sorts of things — that can just be a glance. A glance and a stare are two different things — glances happen naturally when all sorts of things catch your eye whereas a stare is probably gawking at something.
“Personally I have not encountered much of a problem with people staring. I don’t know how you legislate for that.”
