Turning a blind eye

Reader comment on item: The Threat of Islamism

Submitted by Vijay (United Kingdom), Nov 5, 2013 at 09:52

Hundreds of thousands of Muslims have immigrated to Britain in the last 60 years. The British Establishment has been lackadaisical in identifying jihadist, fundementalist and even criminal elemants amongst these and have encouraged them all these years. The blind British Establishment has made these Islamist, jihadi, fundemnetalist elements "community leaders" and "the pillars of the community" - i.e. of the Briths Muslim community. This has had a damaging effect both on Britain as well as British Muslims. A good example of this "pillar of community" is the people who have done War Crimes and genocide in Bangladesh when it broke away from Pakistan 1971. The Islaimists in Bangladesh, who called themselves Al-Badr , went on to kill anobody who dared to speak and work for the independence of Bangladesh and abducted girls for the rape by Pakistani army men. After losing out, they fled to the western countries. Subsequently , they established themselves are pillars of the Muslim communiy.

These "pillars" have been the driving force behind the Islamist outrages in the west. In 1995, they were exposed in a Channel 4 documentary http://www.dailymotion.com/playlist/x1cffz_WarCrimesBD_war-crimes-files-channel-4/1#video=xdq815 as war criminals. That has not prevented their rise as "community leaders" with whom the British government does business.

One of these , Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin, ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chowdhury_Mueen-Uddin) has even been the boss of the "Spiritual services" in the National Health Service. He was the head of Islamic version of Einsatzgruppen, and he and his men killed hundreds of Bengali intellectuals especially during the last days of the Bangladesh liberation war from Pakistan. During the war, he and his fellow Islamists issued Fatwas asking others to murder Bangladeshi freedom fighters since they did not want a united Islamic state of Pakistan.
