The situation in the UK is very worrying right now. There has been much ridicule of the idea of Muslim ‘No-Go Zones’ within the UK, but in fact there do exist areas where non-Muslims rightly feel uncomfortable and unwanted – see below.
It is time that our political leaders acknowledged this as an issue, and that a debate were begun as a Nation on what we want the UK to be like in 50 years’ time. Do we want Sharia law legitimised and imposed upon us? Do we want Muslim law to supplant our Secular Law?
Do we want to allow Muslims to claim ever increasing privilege to do as they please regardless of the law – effectively acting as though they were above the law of the UK? Or do we want to uphold our ancient freedoms and rule of law dating back to Magna Carta?
This is the time to decide and act upon it – because as the below shows, significant parts of the UK are already effectively colonised by Muslims of a particularly backwards, tribal mentality fresh from Bangladesh or Pakistan. Non-Muslim law holds no sway over these people, and even further, they are ruled by even smaller tribal laws within their community. We are not and never will be Bangladesh or Pakistan – so why should we accept that parts of our great nation are ruled as if we were in the 3rd world?
This from the 2011 Census shows there are enclaves of Britain where Muslims form major parts or even the majority of the population:
London Borough of Tower Hamlets: Bethnal Green South (45.7%); Bromley-by-Bow (48.7%); East India and Lansbury (42.9%); Limehouse (35.5%); Mile End and Globe Town (34.3%); Mile End East (45.9%); Shadwell (46.7%); Spitalfields and Banglatown (38.6%); St Dunstan’s and Stepney Green (48.7%); Weavers (30.3%); and Whitechapel (42.4%).
Bradford (West Yorkshire): Bowling and Barkerend (45.8%); Bradford Moor (72.8%); City (57.3%); Great Horton (42.8%); Heaton (55.9%); Keighley Central (51.2%); Little Horton (58.0%); Manningham (75.0%); Toller (76.1%)
Blackburn with Darwen: Audley (68.7%); Bastwell (85.3%); Corporation Park (62.6%); Little Harwood (51.9%); Queen’s Park (51.5%); Shear Brow (77.7%); Wensley Fold (39.8%)
Many areas of Britain with large concentrations of Pakistani, Kashmiri and Bangladeshi Muslims, however, are insular, parallel societies that are run according to patronage-based politics, known as the biraderi (clan or tribal) system. These enclaves are also run according to Sharia law, as evidenced by the prevalence of honor-based violence, polygamy and forced marriage.
A report by the former chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality, Lord Ouseley, foundthat arranged marriages, common among Asian Muslims, are a key factor in the formation of Muslim ghettoes in Britain. The report said:
“The Sikh and Hindu communities are doing relatively well. Overall, their children are performing above average in educational terms. They tend to be better housed and are more likely to be in employment than are those of Pakistani or Bangladeshi origins. This can be explained mainly in class terms. Most of the Sikhs and Hindus come from the middle strata of their societies and are relatively well educated. Most of the Pakistanis and Bangladeshis, predominantly Muslim, come from rural, or more correctly, peasant societies. Many have relatively little education and hold traditionalist views on religion. This, coupled with complex family relationships often identified with land ownership in Pakistan and Bangladesh, leads to a predominance of first cousin marriages which include one spouse from the country of origin. It is estimated these constitute 60% of marriages. This has a significant impact.
