Just back from my brief trip to Qatar and all the talk seems to be about Jack Straw's comments concerning the British Pakistani sex perverts in Derby. Not much mention though of Jack Straw having a brother on the Sex register.
I'm not surprised that Straw and the usual suspects who focus on negative Muslim stories are jumping on the right wing media bandwagon because there has been a wall of silence amongst British Pakistanis on this topic. As a result of the silence Nick Griffin and his Nazi BNP have been running with these stories for years. Why does it take Jack Straw to prompt the Muslim blogosphere to finally address this issue?
Unlike other Muslim blogs who sadly remained silent about sexual abuse amongst in particular British Pakistani's, LM has not been silent and last year highlighted not just the Derby perverts but also the Rochdale sex perverts along with how Pakistan is called Pornistan. In addition, unlike others, LM has shown that sexual abuse is increasingly becoming problematic amongst Pakistani "Imams" who have been abusing young British Pakistani children and in one case the abuse was going on while he was supposed to be teaching the Quran. Did you know one of the youngest convicted rapists in this country Bahal Khan is also a British Pakistani.
Why did LM raise the issue and end up on the receiving end of criticism from British Pakistanis, because LM wanted action by British Pakistanis on the growing issue of sexual abuse rather than be prompted by the likes of the BNP and Jack Straw. Mohammad Shafiq of the Ramadan Foundation has also like LM been vociferous on this issue and is correct that sexual abuse may not be "ingrained " in the British Pakistani population but it's a growing problem that will not be solved by community silence or ridiculous defensiveness which is highlighted by the hostility I received and still get by continuing to highlight what these gangsters and perverts are doing.
