Slavery was abolished in the UK in 1812 after a long fight by abolitionists figureheaded and led by William Wilberforce. It happened at a time when Britain was fighting for its life against the Napoleonic Empire and was enforced by the British Navy. There were other amendments and laws passed in later years as the public realised that the enslavement of others elsewhere was a true crime against humanity. Still the practice went on in some (notably islamic) countries where Africans were sold by their own to Arab traders in a similar manner to how they were sold to Europeans previously… something those who go on about slavery and demanding an apology seem to always omit.
Yet in the UK today there’s a form of slavery still ongoing, it’s child brides and the perpetrators are still as ever muslims…
Religious leaders appeared willing to agree to perform underage marriages at some mosques across the UK, an ITV investigation has discovered.
Two undercover reporters called 56 mosques for Exposure to ask whether they would perform the marriage of a 14-year-old girl.
Two-thirds of those contacted refused to perform the marriage, and many of them made clear they found the request abhorrent. But 18 of the respondents spoken to agreed.
An undercover reporter called the Al Quba Mosque and Shahporan Islamic centre, in Manchester, posing as a single mother who wanted to have an Islamic marriage, known as a nikah, for her 14-year-old daughter.
The Imam at this mainstream mosque, with a congregation of one thousand, told her “that’s not going to be a problem”.
‘Not going to be a problem’ despite it being against the laws of this (and many other) lands, but for a muslim our laws simply don’t apply and as their paedo prophet was quite happy marrying a six year old and deflowering her at nine, then that’s good enough for a muslim male…
Whilst Christians and Buddhists along with other religions can look to their founder as being a true holy man and worthy of emulation, muslims frankly have a major problem with their founder being not the sort most people who know the historical Mohammed would wish to emulate in a thousand years. Well other than someone who has a natural bent towards murder, theft, delusions of holiness, paedophilia, misogyny, adultery, slavery etc. to name but a few of Mohammed’s vices.
This is at part the reason why muslims are so defensive due to a severe lack of knowledge about their beliefs, they are told very little about the dark side of their so called prophet… whom I don’t believe prophesied anything.
When confronted with the facts most of them believe you’re lying and those that know and still carry on well what the imam said is the direct result of Mohammed’s crimes against humanity.
Yet again and again we are told islam is a religion of peace (it isn’t) that it’s tolerant (it isn’t) that it’s the fastest growing religion (not true either)
Our politicians have allowed a dangerous creed to take root in our midst, one that does not respect our laws and traditions and who sees anyone not a muslim male as an inferior.
One day there will come a reckoning with islam, I just hope for our sakes it’s not too late and civilisation wins.
