One of the largest newspapers in Britain has printed a surprise bombshell. It says that Muslim immigrants commit sex crime with impunity because officials fear being branded as a “racist” for speaking out.
Police and social services have been accused of fuelling a culture of silence which has allowed hundreds of young white girls to be exploited by Asian men for sex.
Agencies have identified a long-term pattern of offending by gangs of men, predominantly from the British Pakistani community, who have befriended and abused hundreds of vulnerable girls aged 11 to 16.
Experts claim the statistics represent a mere fraction of a ‘tidal wave’ of offending in counties across the Midlands and the north of England which has been going on for more than a decade.
A senior officer at West Mercia police has called for an end to the ‘damaging taboo’ connecting on-street grooming with race.
Detective Chief Inspector Alan Edwards said: ‘These girls are being passed around and used as meat.
To stop this type of crime you need to start everyone talking about it but everyone’s been too scared to address the ethnicity factor.
‘No one wants to stand up and say that Pakistani guys in some parts of the country are recruiting young white girls and passing them around their relatives for sex, but we need to stop being worried about the racial complication.’
In a briefing paper, researchers at University College London’s Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science concurred that victims were typically white girls while ‘most central offenders are Pakistani’.
The offenders were not viewed as paedophiles but had picked the girls ‘because of their malleability’.
The report concluded that ‘race is a delicate issue’ that should be ‘handled sensitively but not brushed under the carpet’.
But researchers identified 17 court prosecutions since 1997, 14 of them in the past three years, involving the on-street grooming of girls aged 11 to 16 by groups of men.
The victims came from 13 towns and cities and in each case two or more men were convicted of offences.
In total, 56 people, with an average age of 28, were found guilty of crimes including rape, child abduction, indecent assault and sex with a child.
Three of the 56 were white, 53 were Asian. Of those, 50 were Muslim and a majority were members of the British Pakistani community.
Those convicted allegedly represent only a small proportion of what one detective called a ‘tidal wave’ of offending in Yorkshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester and the Midlands.
