Shame on you

Watched a ten minute clip of a ‘discussion’ on some news channel featuring three Pakistani men, the voices of the Muslims in the UK. Forced myself to watch some more featuring others in the public eye. No wonder Islam is a laughing joke in the UK if these ‘discussions’ are what the mainstream media are showing. Most of what I have been watching is from a few years back and most of it is full of angry voices.

The men, who shall remain nameless, are a bloody disgrace. Shouting at each other, resorting to personal attacks that have absolutely nothing to do with the discussion and in turn turning the discussion into a farce. Nothing is resolved. The questions still remain unanswered and no solutions are forthcoming.

Pakistani men, from birth, are treated like kings at home, they are the much desired son, the ‘ladla’ – darling. The birth of a boy in a Pakistani home is a celebration. Mollycoddled and waited on hand and foot all their lives is the future for many of these darling sons.

That has to affect their mentality and their sense of worth, surely? Imagine a life where from birth you are treated as a king, everyone idolises you, growing up you are allowed more freedom than is given to your sisters sounds good doesn’t it?

I do have some sympathy for some of the Pakistani men though. The world must be a scary place for them, a world where their word is not gospel. A world where they are not treated as kings. The women at home may never question your judgement but in the real word people will disagree with you and not everyone will think you are wonderful.

Watching, some, Pakistani men discuss subjects they disagree on can be frustrating I have discovered, and after this article I may never do it again. I was actually embarrassed watching some clips and only managed five minutes or so before I had to switch off only because they sounded like little boys arguing in the playground. Treated like kings at home by their mothers and behaving like spoilt brats on the television. A chance to show that Islam is a religion of peace and they choose to argue showing instead that they cannot even get along, peacefully and respectfully.

The hate and resentment between Pakistani men in the public eye is embarrassing. You only have to log onto Twitter and follow some threads and cringe. Grown men interacting like angry teenagers for the entire world to see. The unhealthy sense of entitlement is easy to witness in many Pakistani men who are active on social media and who are in the public eye.

As a woman of Pakistani heritage I have witnessed first hand the difference in treatment shown towards boys and girls in Pakistani families and the wider community. So I know it is pointless to debate the boys on social media, they will rarely back down and admit a girl is making a valid point. They would rather slander and hurl abuse at those who dare to stand up to them and question their word.

Some of these men have grown up with mothers who have only ever cooked and cleaned and had babies. Any girls born into the family would have the same fate as the mother and their place would be at home. Their immediate family may also have similar traditions and cultures. They are not used to Pakistani women calling them out on their ‘bakwas’ – nonsense. The women in their family keep quiet, they have no voice and few rights and for men from these kinds of families dealing with a strong Pakistani woman is not something they are used to. Easier to show contempt and hate than have a reasonable debate and listen to a woman’s point of view.

The blame doesn’t lie entirely with Pakistani men though and mothers have to take their share. The sense of entitlement can only be erased when boys are raised as equals to girls and not treated like kings who can do no wrong.




Why I believe Tommy Robinson is a working class hero

Shame on everyone who has smeared Tommy Robinson – and made us feel too ashamed to listen to his warnings about grooming gangs. Yes, I believe he should be applauded for taking a stand against the grooming gangs when everyone else was silent. In a society where political correctness has gone mental, and we are all scared of being labelled racist or Far Right, for daring to have an opinion on Islam or mass immigration nobody else was speaking up.

The name Tommy Robinson for me has always conjured up images of skinheads, swastikas and Dr Marten boots. The EDL – I was led to believe – were similar to the BNP, and the BNP put the fear of god into me.

I am the child of an interfaith relationship, the daughter of an immigrant. I grew up with racism from both my Pakistani side and my white Scottish side. The racism from the Pakistani side was less frightening than the white, because it was verbal. On the white side it got physical. I remember occasions when I was out with my white mother. I remember being spat on with screams of ‘fucking paki lover’ at us. At school I fought the boys who dared call me and my siblings ‘smelly pakis.’ At home we had our windows smashed and graffiti painted on the garden walls saying ‘Niggers Out’ and ‘BNP.’

So you can see why the BNP scared me and why the EDL would scare me, given that I assumed they were just a new incarnation of the BNP. The EDL undoubtedly attracted some unsavoury characters with roots in the BNP, the National Front, Combat 18 and skinhead football casuals, even though Robinson repeatedly made it clear that he didn’t want them in any way associated with the EDL (he even received death threats from neo-Nazis). These EDL “supporters” were scary and frightening people, for those of us with brown skin. Unless you have grown up with racism then you cannot understand the fear of being picked on purely for the colour of your skin. You get used to the looks and you get used to subtle (and not so subtle) racial prejudice. You never get used to the fear though.

I have been told I am a whistle blower for writing my debut novel, The Gori’s Daughter, because the book exposes the flaws in the Pakistani community. Many in the community are not happy with my book but thankfully many more applaud me for having the courage to write about the community honestly.

Some in my community have also said said that I am a BNP/EDL dream, which filled me with self-loathing. How anyone could suggest that the BNP would love me when I had grown up being hated by these very people was strange and horrifying.

This is the reason I gave Tommy Robinson such a wide berth, and why I couldn’t even bring myself to follow him on Twitter – even though he was being retweeted onto my timeline on a daily basis often by people I felt were my allies. I was too scared to even read his tweets or watch any of the videos that he featured in. I didn’t follow him because I didn’t want to be labelled a white supremacist, bigot, racist or even patronising racist terms such as coconut. This is Twitter peer pressure at its strongest and its most pathetic.

I started researching him though and I started clicking on links to form my own opinion of him. But still I refrained from clicking on that dreaded “Follow” button on his profile. I viewed videos of him from as far back as 2007, in which he raised concerns about the Muslim street grooming gangs preying on vulnerable British girls.

And it was when I started watching these videos, that, I started to change my view of Tommy Robinson. Here he was, talking about the rape of vulnerable young girls and yet nobody was listening to him. On the contrary, all they were doing was calling him racist and trying to silence him.

Well, we now know there has been a huge cover up by politicians, police and the agencies who were responsible for the safety of the young girls. Today, many continue to call Tommy Robinson a racist instead of listening to his concerns – and his facts. He was talking about (or trying to anyway)

grooming gangs long before anybody else was. It feels more appropriate that we should be thanking him and acknowledging his bravery and honesty, rather than smearing him.

Maybe if Tommy Robinson was from a middle class background, went to University, wore tweed and voiced his concerns with a posh accent he would be listened to. Katie Hopkins is another who is hated as much as Robinson, if not more, for having similar views but being middle class and educated insulates her to an extent. She is given her own newspaper column and regularly appears on TV.

It’s the working class, “chav” and hooligan labels that make it so easy to call Robinson a racist, shut down any debate with him and refuse to give him any mainstream airtime. I have watched some videos where he is constantly called a racist but when he challenges his accusers to produce evidence, they are unable to.

We are quick, perhaps even desperate, to forgive terrorists who have turned their back on terror and they are often rewarded with jobs advising the government. They are flown all over the world meeting political leaders and they quickly find a home on the prestigious speaking circuits. It seems you can be forgiven quicker for being a terrorist than for being a football hooligan.

Anjem Choudary is allowed to vent his hatred for all things Western, on the streets of London, and there is less outrage at that than there is towards Tommy Robinson.  I have watched videos of Choudary demanding the death of non-Muslims, and British soldiers. I have watched as he has led marches calling for Sharia law. He did all this, for years, without any interruption from the police and without any fear of being arrested. Robinson, on the other hand, was arrested at Luton Airport on his way to give a talk on grooming gangs, long before the public was aware of the phenomenon. It is this double standard that seems unfair. This double standard where you can say whatever you like against the British but if you voice concerns about Sharia law or anything to do with Islam, you are shut down for being a racist, has to stop.

After much debating with myself I finally decided to click the ‘Follow’ button on Twitter and I joined the other 120,000+ followers of Tommy Robinson. He has more followers than UKIP and about the same as the Liberal Democrats. There are a number of his followers who are racist; you only have to read some of the comments his followers leave with regards to Pakistani people. It seems as though some of his followers are united in their hatred towards the Pakistani community because of the actions of some. The same can be said of many conservative Muslims though, and the way they speak to, and about, non-Muslims online. Aside from their derogatory attitude to non-Muslims they also speak to liberal Muslims in a sexist and vile manner and accuse them of not being ‘real’ Muslims. Yet there is an expectation that Robinson’s followers (whose behaviour he is not responsible for) have to be perfect and politically correct and that if they aren’t this is Robinson’s fault. The double standards at play over and over.

When Robinson formed the EDL, at the age of 21, within six months it had become the biggest street movement Europe had ever seen. If those in power had listened to his concerns then there would have been no need to form the EDL. Many of the people involved in the EDL were genuinely concerned about the issues affecting their towns and cities. Grooming gangs, forced marriages, FGM and Sharia law were issues concerning many of us, Muslim and non-Muslim alike and as we now know there has been a huge cover up and silence on these issues, so yes it is understandable that they would join the EDL to make theses issues public knowledge. There were a number of people who joined the EDL who were racist; there is no doubt about that. Robinson was one young man, not a politician, trying to make a change and doing his best with nothing but his anger and frustration at what he was seeing happening in his hometown of Luton.

The reason Robinson gave for finally turning his back on the EDL was the racist following, which he was ultimately unable to control, but again nobody wants to listen to that because it does not fit with the preconceived ideas they have of him. Robinson’s life has been threatened and he has received five “Osman Warnings” – these are real and immediate threats to his life and his family which warrant the police making him aware of those threats – but sadly, still not serious enough to protect him. The Government should be doing more to protect him; Robinson himself has accepted that he will be killed, and that it’s just a matter of time. The consequences of such a thing happening will be immense.

There are so many labels being hurled out there that they don’t really mean anything now. So, I no longer care what I am called for following Tommy Robinson and for agreeing with some of what he has to say.

So go ahead: call me, a white supremacist, racist, bigot or whatever else. At least try and be original. I’m beyond caring. I’ll just laugh at you and I’ll carry on following who the hell I want on Twitter, and I’ll carry on agreeing with whoever the hell I want based on the arguments and the facts they present to me. And I’ll always care more about the rape of young girls (regardless of their skin colour), FGM, forced marriage and Sharia law than any stupid name you will ever call me.




Stop raping our children

“Muslim manipulation of white guilt”

Once again Tommy Robinson has been arrested. At the time of writing this article the reasons are unclear and I understand he is due to appear in court on Monday 22nd May. It could be that those in power do not like his reporting, outside courtrooms, of the alleged grooming gangs that are regularly appearing in courts in towns across England. Social media has come out in support of Tommy Robinson and many are questioning, rightly so, why he has been arrested.

Some are saying it was to try and stop him from attending the #justiceforchelsey march in Northumberland on Saturday 12th May. Chelsey was allegedly gang raped by six Syrian and Iraqi refugee men, last year. Chelsey’s brother is in prison for going to the bedsit in which the refugees were living at the time. They have since been moved to a safe house. Others are saying it was to stop Tommy from reporting outside a Leeds court about the case of yet another alleged Muslim grooming gang.

It may be that Tommy infringed a law or prejudiced a trial. Who knows. Perhaps we will know more on Monday. But ask yourself this: would the law have been so rigorously applied to anyone else, who was reporting about a different issue?

It only highlights the wider double standards and discomfort in society today. If you talk about Muslim grooming gangs you will be accused of being a racist, of having an agenda, and of somehow disputing or not acknowledging that white rapists exist (“Yeh, but yeh but, what about Jimmy Savile?”)

The largest number of paedophiles and rapists in the UK are white; the largest number of rapists and paedophiles in jail and on the sex offender register in the UK are white. Hardly surprising in a country that is predominantly white. White men rape. There, I said it. Happy now? Now can I talk about Muslim rape gangs?

Grooming gangs are mostly made up of Pakistani men or, to be more specific, men from Mirpur, Azad Kashmir. Grooming gangs differ from your white rapists in that they pass underage girls round relatives to rape. It’s a bonding thing. A guy thing. It is rare to hear of this particular model of abuse with white rapists and paedophiles, perhaps it happens of course but not to the extent it does with Muslim grooming gangs.

Bearing in mind the particular model of Muslim grooming gangs – where girls are shared between brothers, fathers, uncles, grandfathers, cousins and friends – you get an idea of the number of people in that community that must be involved, or at least who must know about what is happening yet do nothing about it. Their own community, who ensure that more and more girls suffer, shields these men from the law. Typically, paedophiles in the non-Muslim community would not be given such refuge in the way Muslim rapists are.

At the last count there are something like 74 towns across the UK where grooming gangs operate. One way of finding out where there are grooming gangs raping underage girls is to see where there is a large population of Mirpuris. Unfortunately, wherever they are in the UK, hell wherever they are across the world, there will be grooming gangs operating. It’s like smoke and fire.

There are 59 ongoing investigations nationwide. Think about it, 59, how many little girls have been raped? I get why people don’t want to think about it. The thought of it makes me ill. But if we don’t talk about it then how will we stop it?

If you are on the ‘wrong side’ of the political divide it seems you cannot bring attention to it because people will accuse you of ‘scaremongering’ or of being ‘racist’ towards1.6 billion Muslims worldwide. And if you are on the side of the political divide that is seen as being acceptable then you won’t bring up the fact that the majority of men in the grooming gangs are Muslim and you will probably instinctively deflect to the horrific crimes committed by white paedophiles. Did I just hear someone say Jim’ll Fix It?

There are no mainstream media reporters outside the courts across the UK, there is little media coverage of these trials and you have to ask yourself why. Why are these Muslim grooming gangs given special treatment? Would the same treatment be given to say a gang of Jewish men gang raping Muslim children across the UK? I think not.

So we know for a fact that Muslim men have been raping underage white children for many years. I would guess this has been happening since they first arrived in the UK in the 60s. They didn’t wake up one day in the mid 80s and think ‘I know, let’s groom some underage girls for raping.’ This mentality has always been there.

Mirpuri men who arrived in the UK in the 60s must have thought they had landed in Heaven. Back home they are segregated from females once they reach a certain age and so many satisfy their sexual needs with other men, and many more with animals. The really depraved and sickest of them all rape little children.

They thought they had landed in Heaven because they had never seen women mixing freely with the opposite sex. They had never seen women showing so much bare skin. Many of these men started dating white ‘gori’ women and began to set up home with them. The majority of women who dated the men from Pakistan were Catholic; some of these women were from the care system.

Many of these men were taught that white women were easy; that white women were slags and would do anything the men wanted them to do. Some of them were in for a shock when they realised this was actually not true at all. Many of them were shocked that white women dared to stand up for themselves.

These beliefs that white women are slags hasn’t gone away, if anything the beliefs are much stronger than they ever were. 59 court cases involving mostly Pakistani men, charged with the grooming and rape of underage white girls, tells you all you need to know about their beliefs, their culture and their mindset.

Some Pakistani women are also just as guilty as the men in that they too think white women are slags and that the girls who have been raped by the Pakistani men in their communities should have been kept indoors instead of being allowed out. To those women I have only one question and that is ‘What about the Pakistani girls in your own homes, who have no freedom and are kept indoors, that are raped?’

The Muslim grooming gangs will also be raping girls in their own communities. To think that Muslim children are somehow magically protected from rape is a slap in the face of these children. I hear stories all the time. Stories where girls ARE slapped across the face by their mothers for finding the courage to tell of the sex abuse at the hands of whatever relative it might be, stories of grown men who were sexually abused by mullahs at the local mosque. Little boys who grow up to become angry young men with a real hatred towards women, because their mothers did not protect them from being sodomised, little boys who grow up to become men who beat their partners/wives because they have an anger that they have never dealt with.

Then you have the little girls in the community who are being anally raped. Anally raped because the Muslim rapist knows how valuable her virginity is and so as long as her hymen is intact then so too is the family honour. How thoughtful of them. And when this little girl grows up and is forced into a marriage her husband can rape her and the white cloth will have her blood on it to prove she was a virgin.

Talk of Muslim grooming gangs is strongly discouraged in our mainstream media. Any serious talk about it – beyond talking in wishy washy terms about ‘Asian grooming gangs’ (notice how it’s perfectly acceptable to tarnish an entire continent, composed of people of many faiths and none, rather than point to the religion of Islam), or beyond gently remarking that rape is, like, a really bad thing but it happens everywhere (remember Jimmy Savile?) – never takes place. But thanks to the bravery and moral clarity of people like Tommy Robinson, who even before reporting at these trials had been warning about Muslim rape gangs for years, the discussion is slowly being pushed into the mainstream, and there is even now a BBC series about it, Three Girls. If the public are ever educated about Muslim rape gangs it will be despite – and not because of – our media, police, social services, “feminists” and ivory tower-dwelling “liberals.”
