UK afraid to report sex abuse cases for fear of Islamophobia

Muslims have reacted to a report revealing that 1,400 children were subjected to rapes, abductions, and beatings by gangs of men, mostly Pakistani, in Rotherham.

In the report, called the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham, lead author Alexis Jay, says that police and government officials turned a blind eye to the horrifying reports reaching them from abused children because of fear that they would stir up anti-Muslim feelings in Britain.

Muhbeen Hussain, the founder of a British Muslim youth group in the town, said that the social services “totally failed us” by not taking action against the gang members.

“We want the investigations to go back to 1997, cases reopened and prosecutions made, because these people aren’t convicted — they’re still on the streets,” he said in regards to the complaints.

There are about 8,000 Muslims living in Rotherham and 2.8 million Muslims in the U.K., a statistic that is one of the fastest growing in the country.

“It’s definitely not racist to ask why the majority of Rotherham abusers were Asian men,” Sajid Javid, culture secretary in David Cameron’s cabinet, said. “How else will we learn from these awful crimes?”

In a recent article, the Daily Mail said that the majority of British Asians are horrified by the crimes committed in Rotherham. It also said that “But the inescapable conclusion is that the dictates of political correctness were placed above the duty to protect children against violent abuse. Could there be any more damning incitement of the warped priorities of British officialdom?”
