LM has mentioned a number of shocking sexual abuse cases carried out by northern men of Pakistani heritage some even involving Pakistani Imams which Jack Straw also controversially highlighted.
Following the growing number of appalling cases involving Pakistani's from northern towns, LM partly laid some of the blame at Northern Mosques run by illiterate Pakistanis. However, Lord Ahmed in an interesting contribution has blamed unhappy arranged marriages for abuse by some Pakistanis in particular Cousin Marriages.
LM has written a number of articles outlining my opposition to cousin marriages in this day and age here, here and here which is why I support restrictions on foreign brides however, I did not, unlike Lord Ahmed make the connection between Pakistani sexual perverts, sexual abuse and arranged marriages, perhaps because of a lack of statistical evidence indicating the causation.
Nevertheless, Lord Ahmed has flagged up the challenge for Pakistani men growing up in a western sexualised society yet having a relationship that in their minds lacks the intimacy or sexuality they envisaged about marriage.
Reality bites after the wedding ceremony and the guests have gone home, the music is turned off and the dancing stops when the Pakistani wife realises she has swapped the love and lifestyle in Pakistan with the dump in Bradistan and a rather suffocating extended family along with the mother in law so she reacts against her mummy's boy of a husband.
Alternatively, when the husband is questioned about being stuck in a kitchen or watching Bollywood movies and why he spends so much time with the boys he reacts and looks for the freedoms he was accustomed to perhaps at College or University where he drank and shagged his way to his hearts content.
Clearly one for the Sociologists however, I would not dismiss the suggestion by Ahmed out of hand and believe along with the responsibility of some Mosques between us we may jointly be hitting the nail on it's head.
