Why ‘Muslim Grooming’ Is An Issue?
Ethnicity has been a crucial issue in all aspects of Western life. Because of the trans-national mixing of populations. Therefore, ethnicity is one core identification and distinguisher.
But, in case of grooming too ethnicity of the criminals has taken the centre stage. And especially people are blaming upon the Pakistani- British men
A rape survivor Dr. Ella Hill said in an interview that around grooming gangs have raped almost half a million non-Muslim girls. She said that these crimes have occurred in over 40 years by the gangs led by Muslim men. The man who raped was also Pakistani-British. She told in the interview that, these men when abducted her wanted to even change her name.https://www.opindia.com/2020/07/muslim-grooming-gangs-uk-victim-narrate-details-rape/
The word ‘grooming gang’ is quite deceptive. However it must be clearly noted that people are rising against the offensive ideology and crime. Therefore, it has come as a serious issue which was raised by the Prime Minister of the country himself. Involvement of the Islamic ideology in sexual crimes and assaults has escalated all over Europe. However, the leadership is denying to target any one ethnicity or religion, but the core issue need to be addressed.
This is in the same pattern followed in India as well. The love jihad and extensive killing of Hindus over no-issue is a rising crime in these many years. The rising fear and targeted killings of the girls in a brutal way has already shaken Indians. Therefore, this universal pattern must be noted as soon as it becomes a cancer.
