“A furious Asian father was tearing up the picture his child had drawn. He recognised me and came across to say hello. I asked him what his child had done that had made him so angry. He explained that according to his Islamic mentors, drawing pictures of people was forbidden. I was flabbergasted.The future is bleak all right.
This was in the middle of Britain’s multicultural capital, a modern metropolis, not some dusty backstreet in Kabul. I asked the man if he owned a camera.
‘Yes,’ he replied. ‘And a video camera.’ So I asked why was it acceptable for him to take pictures, but not for his child to draw a stick figure.
‘The madrasa teacher told me children are not allowed to,’ he said, referring to the places of religious instruction for Muslim children…
Such fundamentalist beliefs about parenthood are not uncommon. Teachers, lecturers, community, youth and social workers have told me many more such stories of the suppression of simple childhood pleasures in the name of Islam.
The Muslim Council of Britain confirmed that music lessons are likely to be ‘unacceptable’ to 10% of Muslims. What should be a simple pleasure is instead seen as a symbol of moral decadence…
Many inner-city teachers have told me they feel paralysed by extreme demands. Brainwashed Muslim parents ask school librarians not to lend their children storybooks… Teddy bears and pets are also branded un-Islamic.
I have met Muslim lawyers and academics who have turned to Taliban-style beliefs. These men propagate Wahhabism, the backward Saudi belief system followed by al-Qaida and espoused by hate preachers such as Omar Bakri and Anjem Choudary.
The rapid spread of rigid, diehard Islam is deeply worrying. Yet those in power, focused on terrorist cells, seem oblivious to this other peril. For many of us Muslims, this creeping Talibanisation of childhood is unendurable…
I could never have imagined, nine years on, that our politicians and Muslim ‘leaders’ here would allow their twisted ideology to spread across Britain. Taliban devotees are in our schools, playgrounds, homes, mosques, political parties, public service, private firms and universities…
Eye-watering amounts of Saudi money goes into promoting Wahhabism in mosques, religious schools, imams, conferences and trips to Saudi Arabia. The result is utterly corrosive, in particular for women and children who are paying the social price for fundamentalism.
Invaluable educational activities and ordinary pleasures are considered sinful. If this was happening in any other nation, we would be condemning it loudly…
Why are we fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan and indulging Taliban values here? (Why indeed!)
The powerful must find a way of stopping Islamicists from promulgating their distorted creed. If they don’t, the future is bleak for Muslims and the country.”
As is the present for many British people. As was the past. Ever since the aliens began piling in to our country, the majority have been denading that those they vote for do something to hold back the tide.
They never did. In fact, most governments since Eden’s time encouraged it.
Thing is, Yasmin, ever since you arrived here as a refugee from |Idi Amin’s Uganda in 1972, you’ve been sneering and snarling at those didn’t want to cuddle up to the very people you condemn here. We, according to a good many of your articles, were, and still are, racists, Fascists, Nazis, bigots and little-Englanders for not wishing to live alongside such folk.
I mean, why would anyone wish to have Taliban type move into their street?
You are a disgusting hypocrite, Yasmin. Truly disgusting. You can condemn, we can’t. That’s how it is in left-wing heaven. If the ‘white working-classes’ express a desire not to have their world ‘paralysed by extreme demands,’ or enriched by ‘diehard Islam’, ‘self pity overwhelms them,’ according to you. Such ‘stupid,’ ‘vicious,’ ‘wretched and complaining classes’ deserve to be a ‘lost species in a hundred years.’
Well, more and more are finding out what you’re all about, lady. Recently, the ‘hundred years’ quote appeared in The Sun. That means almost two and a half million people got the chance to ponder your genocidal, anti-white attitude.
Oh yes, it isn’t just the ‘Taliban devotees… in our schools, playgrounds, homes, mosques, political parties, public service, private firms and universities’ we should be wary of, the fanatically ungrateful immigrant is preaching contempt for their erstwhile benefactors throughout the media as well.
As for the ‘eye-watering amounts of Saudi money’ that ‘goes into promoting Wahhabism in mosques’ and ‘religious schools,’ well, there’s no way in the world our leaders are going to halt such alien impositions. Not when they’re up to the eyeballs in debt to the Saudis, they’re not. Oh no, it isn’t just the mosques and the hate preachers that their oil money funds, it’s the national debt as well.
Anyway, that’s why those we vote for are ‘indulging Taliban values here.’ That and the fact that they, just like you, the Saudi-backed hate-preachers, the ‘Muslim lawyers and academics who… propagate Wahhabism and the ‘brainwashed Muslim parents’ are at war with the ‘white working-classes’ as well.
All this being said, thanks for the forthright testimony, Yaz. If I'd told the truths that you tell here as ostentatiously as this, I'd probably be up on a charge.
