The officers were caught off guard by the sudden increase in intensity of the clashes.

A most deafening silence is heard from mainstream Western media outlets on the Eid riots. It leaves questions on the lack of coverage or condemnation in its wake. While social media platforms are buzzing with updates and expressions of concern, major news channels remained conspicuously silent on the unrest. Is this Sadiq Khan’s London media management? Will crimes or unrest caused by ‘peacefuls’ be swept under the carpet? Are the media deliberately ignoring the menace of ‘peaceful’ willfulness in the face of authority? 

The absence of media attention raises concerns about who is controlling the information dissemination and media campaigns.

In times of crisis, the media keeps the people well-informed on the events. Such reports help the public to hold the authorities accountable in the pursuit of justice against rioting mobs. However, the silence of the Western media on the Eid celebration riots in Southall underscores a broader issue of media suppression and coverage bias. The lack of coverage exposes the grip ‘peacefuls’ have on media narratives.

Do you think the Western media would be silent if a similar riot occurred during Holi or Diwali celebrations? Is London the new Pakistan? Are the media scared to raise issues related to a particular section of society? The obvious answer to these questions will reveal the present and future of London at the hands of ‘peacefuls’! Imagine if they could celebrate with riots, what could happen in England it they got really upset with the police or the public???
