Incidents of ‘Islamophobia’ are really getting out of hand in Britain. In fact there has been such a wave of attacks that it’s amazing that politicians and commentators across the political spectrum, (not to mention all those supposed ‘anti-fascist’ groups) aren’t grand-standing like crazy. Perhaps their problem is that this wave of attacks does not consist of people writing nasty and mean things on Twitter, but of Muslims killing other Muslims and still other Muslims extolling such killings.
It’s only a couple of weeks since a Sunni Muslim from Birmingham called Tanveer Ahmed was sentenced to prison for murdering an Ahmadiyya Muslim shopkeeper from Glasgow called Asad Shah. Mr Ahmed thought Mr Shah had ‘disrespected’ Islam, and so he repeatedly stabbed Mr Shah in the head until he was dead. Some people will remember that aside from the brutality of that case one of the most remarkable things about it was that while the family of Asad Shah were too terrified to turn up to court, the circle of the loved-one’s murderer certainly did show up to court and there showed great support for the killer. Indeed associates of the murderer interviewed outside the court seemed more annoyed that their friend had been sentenced to prison than that an innocent Muslim shopkeeper had been brutally murdered.
This month’s poster-boy for the ‘Ummah’ is a Muslim from Rochdale called Mohammed Hussain Syeedy. This young man, aged 21, has been found guilty of the murder of an Imam from Rochdale called Jalal Uddin (71) who the young Rochdale man thought had the wrong theological ideas regarding the peaceful religion of Islam. And so Syeedy took part in an attack on the Imam in which his head was smashed in with ‘repeated forceful blows’. Mr Uddin died a short time later in hospital.
