Multiculturalism was doomed to failure almost from its inception, that which divides us cannot unite us after all. But it was the insistence of well meaning (in some cases) politicians who allowed certain cultures to be above criticism and to actively withdraw from society as a whole that has lead to major problems in the streets of some of our towns and cities. Nowhere has this become more clear than Tower Hamlets or as it’s now becoming colloquially known as “The Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets”
His promise to turn last month’s Royal Wedding into a ‘nightmare’ may not have materialised — but that won’t stop Richard Dart from peddling his views about Britain’s monarchy online.
‘Prince William, Prince Harry and the Queen of England are guilty of funding and supporting the terrorist attacks that take place in Muslim lands,’ he says adamantly in an internet video broadcast.
A Briton from Dorset who converted to Islam in 2009 and renamed himself Salahuddin (the son of teachers), Dart is one of several extremist Muslim preachers operating in the Tower Hamlets area of East London.
This vocal minority, who are causing increasing concern in the area, have lent this corner of the capital a new nickname — the Islamic republic of Tower Hamlets.
Recently, it was reported that a 31-year-old Asian woman who works in a local chemist’s had received death threats for refusing to wear a veil, even though she’s not a practising Muslim. Four weeks ago, the woman’s boss was apparently approached by an Asian in his 40s who told him his employee must cover her head and wear longer robes.
‘If she keeps working here and continues to dress like that, we will boycott you because this is a Muslim area,’ the shop’s owner was told.
Subsequently another, younger, Asian man came into the pharmacy and started shouting at the employee.
‘He said: “If you keep doing these things, we will kill you,”’ recalls a Bangladeshi-born man who witnessed the scene.
It is not the first time such death threats have been issued, and nor are they confined to issues of dress and deportment. In behaviour that some have compared to that of the Taliban in Afghanistan, homophobic abuse and physical attacks against gay men and women are also reported to be on the increase.
This sadly is the direct result in political meddling in an attempt to affect social change. The UK has always been a melting pot of immigration, if only because it was the last place anyone could go, yet mostly the numbers were low enough that the new immigrants were absorbed into the whole within a few generations. This changed under the previous government where uncontrolled immigration was allowed and measures were put in place to prevent integration because it was wrong to demand that minorities should become like us. We had to respect them, though eventually it became obvious that they did not have to respect us. This was exacerbated by the introduction of certain groups from strongly Islamic areas such as Pakistan and Bangladesh, The tribal nature of those immigrants couples with the natural intolerance of Islam to anything “unIslamic” has turned many areas where they live into no go areas for the rest of us. Instead of each generation becoming more mainstream, they have been allowed to create enclaves of intolerance where some barbaric practices from their homelands have been allowed to fester and grow. Misogyny, homophobia, child abuse, grooming, political chicanery and other less savoury ways of life have now been transported to the UK where many of the immigrants had originally come to escape them.
All this was allowed and encouraged under New Labour to rub the “rights” nose in diversity. Well it has now born fruit, diversity means shop assistants are now threatened for not wearing a veil, posters with women dressed in western clothing or couples kissing are blacked out. Dishonour killings are on the rise, extreme Islam is being used to force many to toe the line as the extremists now move into the open.
