“British media is prune to racial hatred against Asian men mainly Muslim men. Minority does not define all Asians. A Christian, catholic, sikh or jew that commit crimes e.g paedophile are not all branded the same. why isn't it publicised in the media when women and children are getting raped by British or american soldiers. When Christian paedophiles think its ok to mess with kids why isn't that publicised via race?? Majority of the murderers that kill are white so are we to assume every white person is also a murderer??people that assume they know Islam need to actually look into it instead of following blindly, i don't know where you are getting your information from (David John). There is not other religion more peaceful then Islam, people are just afraid to look into the religion because they know that if they did it would make sense, instead they follow made up opinions stupidly!!!

Child sex abuse figures from UK H.M. Prison Service show that perpetrators are overwhelmingly white: 93% White vs 7% Black/Asian. In 2009, 8 ALL white members of a paedophile network have been found guilty of a catalogue of charges relating to child abuse and indecent images of children yet the our xenophobic media did not make it a 'race' issue. Also, the vast majority of sexual abuse of children takes place in the home by people they know, family members, family friends etc (and in some cases even priests) NOT out on the street by gangs, White, Asian or otherwise.

Many of the people that do the abusing are from all religions, including Islam, that is also a fact!. No particular culture has the monopoly on this disgusting crime! It's not just the Pakistani community, the xenophobes are out in force again. 95% of grooming is done by whites. Lear we forget the nursery nurse taking sexual photos of 0-5 in Cornwall. Yes the Pakistani community need to look at their own lads what they're up to and they need to deal with.””

    One must admit for the small percentage of the general population, muslim men are more than represented in the sex crime tables...

  • iftikhara  |  May 17 2012, 12:25PM

    A girl from Doncaster had her first abortion at the age of 12 and went on to have more abortions when she was 13,`5, and 16. She did not regret tha abortions but did regret having sex when she was not mature enough to deal with it. She was not raped by a Pakistani youth. She moved from bed to bed according to her own will. These Pakistani youths are British born and educated in state schools with non-Muslim monolingual teachers. They are the product of western education system which makes a man stupid, selfish and corrupt. They have been mis-educated and de-educated and they do not know where they belong. They suffer from identity crises. They speak English in local accents. They are unable to speak, read and write Urdu language. They find themselves cut off from their cultural roots and are unable to enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry. Such individuals are fully assimilated into British culture. What do you expect from such individuals? Instead of sending them to prison, they should be included in New Year Honour List. In the past a Muslim girl was awarded MBE for running way from her parents. Now there are round about 6000 runaway Muslim girls in the custody of LAs. They should also be included in the Honour List. Thanks to the British education system. Most teenage girls, but especially the girls who hang around the streets have no roots, low self esteem etc and so is easy prey for any group - any group - who cares to seduce them. Lots of "KID's" around 12 to 14 start partying! (Drinking, doing drugs & having sex). This was happening in the 60s & 70s, so I am sure it's worse now. The big issue is where the PARENTS are. British parents already lost the battle to have any control over their children. Britain's so brilliant Education Ministry had embarked on teaching sex to 5 year olds from last year. Britain already has health and social services, including counseling for children who are sexually active. One initiative has distributed contraceptives to girls as young as 11. Tony Blair said it is the right thing to do– handing free contraceptives to British girls. The Institute for Public Policy Research found that a major reason for Britain's thug generation was the collapse of British family life. Evidence also showed that British adults are afraid to control their drunk, high, fornicating and violent teens. The adults also lagged behind their European peers in confronting their teenagers about "antisocial" behavior. The native Brits have double standards and are hypocrites; they don't mention the fact that the majority of men who go to countries in East Asia looking for under aged sex are natives European men. This is sickening. It's no wonder Great Britain is in such a bad shape. Ten years old British girls are haveing babies out of wedlock. They are not allowed to get married but are allowed to have babies. Teenage pregnancy rate in Great Britain is the highest in Western Europe. It is a civilised country and Yemen is a backward country because it allowes young girls to get married. Indiscipline, incivility, binge drinking, drug addiction, gun and knife crimes, teenage pregnancies and abortion are part and parcel of British schooling. These are the reasons why majority of Muslim parents would like to send their children to Muslim schools with Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods. Only less than 5% attend Muslim schools and more than 95% keep on attending state and church schools to be mis-educated and de-educated by non-Muslim monolingual teachers. There are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school. Vast majority of child abuse/grooming are done by white (british) males. also vast majority of rape cases are also from same racial background.

    iftikhara – His Lordship concurs with you. Did you know that all you were saying about the problems of integration were pointed out in the early 1970s ! It's true, but they went ahead with mass sub continent immigration anyway. No idea why, it's not as if our population had crashed. Still, it's done now, so we'll all just have to pull together and make the most of it, don't you think... PS. Best way to integrate is to keep one's head down you know. Like the British expats in Arab lands.

    Well it is very common to make a comment and then Go on Walk and thinking that you have done a Right Thing Criticizing Religion And Telling People Untruthful Things which is not really A Fact. Islam Never Teaches To Hate People To Rape Women To Disrespect People but to Bring Peace to Bring Humanity and To Bring Justice of what is Wrong and Right If some People who is raping doing criminal acts is just not Muslims Because in Islamic Law if somebody is making Criminal Acts he is not one of us At other Hands if you want really to act Against us and want to tell the World that your religion is Best so then just read and know about islam and tell me one thing which is logically written wrong in the Book of Islam which is Quran. Islam is Made on Pillars To respect to obey and to Worship one God. Islam is the Complete Standard of Living if someone is Following he is among us if someone is not following he is not one of us so we cant say that we are perfect as humans to obey 100% every thing because we make mistakes but when we talk about our God His Book Quran and His Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) They are Perfect and their is No Mistake in them and in their Sayings. I would very like if somebody just Listen me Logically not in hatting Manner and Think with them selves is any word I said is wrong or out of standards Thankyou.

    Europe is still racist, xenophobic and Islamophobic. It is unable to forget and forgive the seige of Vienna in 1683. I fully understand the FEAR & THE INFERIORITY COMPLEX Factor among some Christians / Jews & the Hindu Groups/Individuals when dealing with the subject of ISLAM. Today the followers of All the Religions in the World are talking Only about ISLAM, because, it is understandable that You will only talk about SOMETHING WHICH IS TRULY HUGE / GIGANTIC & TREMENDOUSLY SUCCESSFUL, when compared to ALL the other religions. We will NEVER like to discuss about anything which is INSIGNIFICANT, but ISLAM IS HUGELY SIGNIFICANT as the Fastest Growing Religion in the entire World, not only Europe or America or Africa or Asia or Australia. ISLAM as a religion is Growing Everywhere, by the Grace of the Almighty Allah. This is not there in the case of other religions, because THEY ARE ALL OBSOLETE NOW. Only ISLAM is the One and Only LIVE/TRUE religion in this World, hence SPREADING. There is a tremendous CAMPAIGN GOING AROUND THE WORLD TO DEMONISE ISLAM to put a STOP ON ITS GROWTH. Please do not Demonise ISLAM, Read the Noble Quran to understand what ISLAM really is.

    Daily attacks on Bradford teachers by unruly pupils will lead to hundreds leaving the profession, a leading teaching union warned today. Kicking, spitting and biting is the grim reality for many school staff in the district, according to Pam Milner, the regional spokesman for the NASUWT, which represents many local teachers. Mrs Milner said staff morale had hit rock bottom and blamed attacks on the absence of parental control and the lack of specialist places for those with learning difficulties. She said that those teachers subjected to violence, in mainstream primary, secondary and specialist schools, would rather leave the profession to do menial jobs than choose to face the threat of working in a problem district school. And she warned that a shortfall could mean the Council being forced to recruit from as far afield as Australia and Canada. The schools in Bradford are in a bad shapes. Teachers and children are victim of abuse and violance Bilingual Muslim children suffer more than others. There are lot of state primary and secondary schools in Bradford where Muslim pupils are in majority. In my opinion all such schools may be opted out to become Muslim Academies. Bilingual Muslm children need bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods. A bilingual teacher has the ability to teach bilingually and explain complex concepts to children who have limited understanding of English. Learning in their first language 'raises their self-esteem, self-respect and strengthens their identities in western culture. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school. This mean the Muslim children will get a decent education. Muslim schools turned out balanced citizens, more tolerant of others and less likely to succumb to criminality or extremism. Muslim schools give young people confidence in who they are and an understanding of Islam's teaching of tolerance and respect which prepares them for a positive and fulfilling role in society. Muslim schools are attractive to Muslim parents because they have better discipline and teaching Islamic values. Children like discipline, structure and boundaries. Bilingual Muslim children need Bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods, who understand their needs and demands. Bilingual Muslim children need to learn and be well versed in Standard English to follow the National Curriculum and go for higher studies and research to serve humanity. The problem is that they learn English in the streets and in the playgrounds. British schooling does not teach English to migrant children. The teachers let them speak the same accent in the classroom. They have no courage to stop them or correct them. This is one of the main reasons why one third of children have difficulties with reading when they leave primary schools. Majority of such children are bilingual Muslims. They often speak "street" with its own grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. In other European countries and in the sub-continent argot and slang are not allowed into the classrooms. In Britain primary school teachers do not feel that it's role to interfere with self-expression in any shape or form. They encourage children to read poems and stories written in ethnic dialects. Bilingual Muslim teachers are in a better position to teach English to their children. IA

So I'll ask you again - if it's so bad here, why don't you leave and go back to one of your Islamic heartlands where peace, education, tolerance and respect are so very prevalent?

    It is easy to say" Go back to where you came from",but do not forget that British Muslims are actually born and educated here. They are in the unenviable position of trying to combine two different worlds. That is no easy. We do not want to change you lot but we would like to see our children getting balanced Islamic education along with National Curriculum. We would like our children to learn and be well versed in standard English to follow the National Curriculum and go for higher studies and research to serve humanity. At the same time we would like our children to learn and be well versed in Arabic, Urdu and other community languages to keep in touch with their cultural roots and enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry. A Muslim is a citizen of this tiny global village. He/she does not want to become notoriously monolingual Brit. Bilingualism is an asset but British schooling regards it as a problem. We live in a shrunken world and millions of people are on the move; one of our biggest challenges is how we learn to live in proximity to difference – different skin colours, different beliefs and different way of life. According to a study by COMPAS, Muslims born and educated were given the impression of outsiders. The perception among Muslims is that they are unwelcome in Britain is undermining efforts to help them integrate into wider society. Most of them say that they have experienced race discrimination and religious prejudice. Muslims and Islam is promoted a fundamentalist and separatist by the western elite, which have negative impact on community and social cohesion. The number of racist incidents occurring in London Borough of Redbridge's schools have reached their highest levels since record begin. A City or a locality, where Muslims are in majority is a ghetto. There is a tendency for people of similar backgrounds to live together in neighbourhoods. The term"ghettoisation" is inappropriate. The original ghettos in Europe during the middle ages were set up by law to confine the Jewish population to one area of a city. According to a research by an Australian academic that Muslim communities in Britain are being increasingly ghettoized in a trend that set back hopes of assimilation by years. Britain has now eight cities in the top 100 most ghettoized cities. The people from the Pakistani community in Bradford and Oldham and Leicester had trebled during the decade. A report by an academic Dr Alan Carling, that Bradford risks becoming a front line in the global clash between the West and Islam. But Islam and Muslims do not clash with the concepts of pluralism, secularism and globalisation. The native flight from Bradford's inner-city wards showed clear evidence of an increase in segregation in the city since 1991. Native parents are avoiding sending their children in state schools where Muslims and other minorities are in majority. The dominance of Pakistani Muslims in the city has meant that Bradford has become bi-cultural. Immigrants are the creators of Britain new wealth, otherwise, inner cities deprived areas could not get new lease of life. The native Brits regard such areas as ghettoes. Integration is not religious and cultural, it is economic and Muslims are well integrated into British society and at the same time they are proud of their Islamic, linguistic and cultural identities, inspite of discrimination they have been facing in all walks of life. According to UN, 80% of British Muslims feel discriminated. They are less burden on social services. Immigrants made up 8.7% of the population, but accounted for 10.2% of all collected income tax It is often quoted by the Western media that Muslim schools ghettoizse the children, and even lead to their radicalisation if they are not integrated. There is no evidence that faith schools lead to a "ghettoized education system. In British schools, pupils are encouraged to focus too much on their similarities rather than differences.

    iftikhara - your rants indicate a deranged mind - have you tried to get help? Or better still go on a Pilgrimage to Mecca. Would help. I have nothing against Muslims, many within my circle, have got to appreciate the wisdom, poetry and huge contribution of Islamic scholars and navigators that kept World civilization alive during the dark ages - but then lost its way by dogmatic extremists - wake up - you are not doing modern Islam any favours and many in the community despise you as a poor example of someone that wants to help integration and uplift of Islamic people in the U.K and around the world.

Arabic is a religious language and all Muslims must learn and be well versed in Arabic to recite and understand the Holy Quran.Ed is very proud of his comprehensive school because students were speaking 60 languages. After leaving school, all those who spoke different languages, could only speak English because there is no arrangement for them to learn their own languages at school. Even teachers discouraged them to speak their language in school. British schooling regards bilingualism as a problem and not an asset. Sadiq was the product of British schooling. He is very proud that he is unable to speak, read and write Urdu language. I do not blame him. It is the fault of the school. Legally, the state has an obligation to respect the rights of parents to ensure that 'education and teaching(of their children) is in conformity with their own religious and philosophical convictions.' The schools must satisfy the spiritual, moral, social,and cultural needs of Muslim pupils. State schools with non-Muslim monolingual teachers are not in a position to satisfy their needs and demands. Bilingual Muslim children need state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school.

  • iftikhara  |  February 04 2013, 8:15PM

    In the current debate on integration in Europe, and in Germany in particular, it is often said that immigrants must 'adapt' or 'conform'. If one enquires further as to what is meant by this, one hears for example that Muslim women should not wear a headscarf. Such things have nothing whatsoever to do with integration. When new members of a group or society conform entirely to hitherto prevailing customs and ideas within that society, this is called assimilation. Requiring immigrants to do this would mean that immigrants would have to sever themselves from their roots and deny their cultural identity. Integration means the acceptance within a community of others as others. A society is unified, or should be unified, by respect for laws that are applicable to all. This respect does not require all members of that society to observe the same customs. They do not all have to have the same sexual orientation or wear the same clothes. They don't even have to speak the same language, as is clearly demonstrated by the example of our neighbours, the Swiss. There are a total of four different official languages in Switzerland. The idea that all citizens must be alike is a relict from the days of totalitarianism that does not correspond to the nature of democracy. The sexualisation of children by the government, Dept of Education, 'pregnancy advice centres', social workers, school nurses, media aimed at teen girls, contraceptive industry lobbyists, fashion industry and the welfare state to name just a few, is a crime against humanity. It is also gross hypocrisy for the police to prosecute paedophiles when the government is overseeing boy scouts being given condoms from the age 11 and girls of the same age being told it is OK to have sex if they use 'protection'. Boys and girls at age 11 are not allowed to marry but they can have sex and produce children. Every parent is worried about his child being indoctrinated into the idea that gay and sexual promiscuity is "normal" modes of behaviour. At the same time, all parents have the right to control their children and it is their Duty to control them. It is an eye opening for the Muslim parents who keep on sending their children to state schools with non-Muslim monolingual teachers. Bilingual Muslim children need state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers a s role models during their developmental periods. Muslim teachers are in a better position to teach sex education to teenagers according to Islamic perspectives. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school. State funded Muslim schools are crucial for social cohesion, religious and cultural harmony. They are preparing children and young people to face the challenges of life in modern Britain and to also contribute in a positive way to wider society. Muslim children will develop self-confidence and self-esteem. According to TES, pupils make more progress at Muslim secondary schools than any other type of schools. They are promoting tolerance and support the spiritual, moral, social, linguistic and cultural development of pupils. IA http://tinyurl.com/yczmxmq

    If Muslims from various linguisitic and ethnic groups want their cultures and languages to be strengthened - they can pay and set up the institutions they want - not sure why the British taxpayer should fund a plethora of cultural and linguistic minority schools and cultural centres for such dubious purposes. Multiculturalism was an unnecessary concept dreamt up by the pseudo-intellectuals of the 1960s and 70s - has wrought havoc and prompted separation of British society into ethnic/lingusitic ghettos. Not sure which world this character is from - but he should visit some of the Islamic countries of the world how far they practice some of his so called Islamic concepts. Basic spoken and written English should be a first requirement of granting Citizenship to immigrants. Muslim youngsters will not thank the likes of this chap if they get drawn into his dogmatic and mindless rants.

    In Sweden as with other Scandinavian countries, the muslim rape wave is a real problem. Look at the statistics and see why this is the biggest factor why Swedish people are so unhappy with immigration. In answer to this a leading Swedish imam said 'if Swedish girls don't cover their hair, they can expect to get raped'. This shows the clash of cultures and why they cannot accept western women don't wear the hijab or burqah.

    A Tory MP has been criticised for saying that women were increasing their risk of being raped by wearing tight, short skirts and getting 'blind drunk' on nights out. Richard Graham said that while what a woman wore did not necessarily attract sexual predators, it could make it harder for them to get away from an attacker. Mr Graham said women were increasing their risk of being raped by wearing tight, short skirts. If a woman wears a short skirt and high heels and has a few too many drinks, then she is asking to be raped. It beggars belief. These 'human' beings who rape women do not care if you are wearing a short skirt or a big baggy sack, all they want to do is rape someone, anyone for that matter. Women can not rely on the chivalry of men, they have to take responsibility for the way they conduct themselves in public. To get drunk and stagger around the town centre half naked on a Saturday night is not empowerment. Any one who keeps letting women off the hook for everything that happens does a disservice to women. We have to take responsibility for our lives. Waving a piece of meat in front of a feral dog increases the risk of being bitten. Wearing suggestive clothing may provoke a human "feral dog" to attack. Why is it politically incorrect to simply state the obvious? Rapists will always be rapists. But if a girl lies intoxicated on a park bench wearing revealing clothing, it does make it easier for a disgusting rapist to choose his victim. It is not that long ago when women were trying to be accepted and loved for their minds maybe more than for their bodies. In todays world all that seems to have disappeared amid a miasma of loose morals, indiscipline, raunchiness both in dress and behaviour, bawdiness and cheap sex. It is a shame that the art of being alluring and oozing subtle sexiness with chic has gone. Now it is full in the face.No female should be on their own in the middle of a park at night, drunk or not!!! wearing such clothing will make it considerably harder to escape an attacker. These 'Rape Crisis' organisations should be offering similar advice if they seriously care about rape and helping girls avoid becoming victims of it, the same way the police will advise you to secure your homes properly to prevent burglary.It is not a secret that the way one dresses has an impact on how they are perceived by others. The harsh truth is there are nutters out there. If they go out with the intent of rape then they will pick the most drunk provocatively dressed, as they are the easiest pray. Its not nice but it's real life. The main problem is the drink not the clothes. Yes some May say it's their right to dress how they please, but nutters do not recognise this right. It's not a perfect world out there. What sort of message are people who dress like this sending out? They must know what a lot of men are like. NOBODY asks to be raped. Most rape victims know their attackers and it doesn't just occur when a woman is dressed in what society deems a "provocative manner". We need to get out of this culture of victim shaming and start education and harsh punishments for attackers. A male or female (I believe both sexes can be victims of assault and harassment of a sexual nature) should be able to dress how they want without somebody attacking or assaulting them only to be made to feel worse by people who claim they "had it coming".

    My big problem with Muslims is Halal Slaughter. I have heard reports say it is humane if done properly, or rather the most humane and know that there are horror stories with British Slaughter as well but it seems so so cruel? I think there is a lot of peace in Islam if it is stripped back and there is certainly a lot of media negativity. Such as Halal slaughter, we hear about this but we don't hear so much about the cruelty of Kosher slaughter. There is good and bad in everybody but we are allowed to say that and for all the hatred expressed toward Muslims, I do think if any indication of hatred or rejection of a jew, we would see automatic arrests for anti-semitism

  • Justica  |  February 06 2013, 7:40PM

    Halal slaughter, is in direct conflict with the British slaughter method of stunning an animal prior to death. This is because they say a prayer to Allah and the animal wouldn't hear this is stunned. You will find that many British people who object to the halal method of slaughter nevertheless eat halal meat in schools, prisons or hospital unknowingly. You will find any British objection is from the point of view of we allow freedoms for others but we can't allow you to force your customs and way of life on us. Jewish people, although keeping their own customs, etc., do not force their way of life on anyone and integrate very well. A typical example is in the Swedish city of Malmo gave refuge to many holocaust survivors after WW2 and they have lived there very peacefully since. Until, a great influx of muslims, which now makes up 40% of the population. Because of violence and harrassment by muslims, a great number of Jews have escaped to Israel. When the Israeli Davis Cup team were due to play there, because of muslim violent riots, they had to play behind closed doors without spectators. You do not see arrests for anti-semitism, because generally British people do not hate, what they do hate as with my Swedish friends, is the aggressive bullying by some muslims of others. Look at the cases of Neda-Agha Soltan, Theo van Gogh and Amina Filali and see if you do not feel for them.

    The Halal slaughter method (along with Shechita which is the name for pretty much the same method used by Jews) is not cruel at all. When the animal's throat is slit, it results in a massive drop in blood pressure causing pretty much instantaneous unconsciousness. As long as the cut is performed correctly the animal will feel a mere instant of pain compared to the intense suffering they can go through in abattoir's with the "normal" slaughter method. The link that has been made between this story and Britain becoming an Islamic State is a bit extreme. The majority of British people are atheist. But it doesn't mean we can't try and make life easier and better for people of all faiths and cultures. All children should be offered a choice. That way Muslims can eat what they want and non-Muslims can eat what they want. The Muslim community has been passing through a phase of fourth Crusades. The battleground is the field of education, where the young generation will be educated properly with the Holly Quran in one hand and Sciences in other hand to serve humanity. A true Muslim is a citizen of the world, which has become a small global village. We are going to prepare our youth to achieve that objective in the long run. A true Muslim believes in Prophet Moses and the Prophet Jesus and without them one cannot be a Muslim. My suggestion is that in all state, independent and Christian based school special attention should be given to the teaching of Comparative Religion and Islam should be taught by qualified Muslim Teachers to make the children aware the closeness of Islam to Christianity and Judaism which will help them to think about Islam, as "A Pragmatic and Modern Way of Life," during their life time. Those state schools where Muslim children are in majority may be opted out as Muslim Academies. Bilingual Muslim children need to learn and be well versed in Standard English to follow the National Curriculum and go for higher studies and research to serve humanity. The problem is that they learn English in the streets and in the playgrounds. British schooling does not teach English to migrant children. The teachers let them speak the same accent in the classroom. They have no courage to stop them or correct them. This is one of the main reasons why one third of children have difficulties with reading when they leave primary schools. Majority of such children are bilingual Muslims. They often speak "street" with its own grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. In other European countries and in the sub-continent argot and slang are not allowed into the classrooms. In Britain primary school teachers do not feel that it's role to interfere with self-expression in any shape or form. They encourage children to read poems and stories written in ethnic dialects. There are couples of state schools in Harrow where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies so that non-Muslim children could enjoy their own meals in their own schools. Iftikhar Ahmad

    On 11th September 2001 I was in Birmingham at the time of twin towers. I can well remember girls from a muslim school running into the street laughing and shouting with glee. This is because THEY are taught racism against the Kaffir . You will find in British schools in RE all children are taught about Islam and this includes a visit to a mosque in a bid to be open minded to other religions. We must not allow these brainwashing schools as they are potential breedin grounds for future terrorists.
