UK: Sikhs ask establishment media to stop calling Muslim rape gangs “Asian”

The British establishment media is unlikely to comply. Like the media all over the West, the UK press seems to consider it its foremost priority to protect the image of Islam, and therefore to obfuscate the identity and motives of Muslims who commit crimes that are in accord with Islamic texts and teachings. And so they call Muslim rape gangs “Asian,” because no one can bear to contemplate the fact that these gangs are animated by, and justify their actions by, Islamic teachings regarding the “captives of the right hand,” i.e., Infidel sex slaves (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). I call them “Muslim” here because their motivations come from Islam, not from the fact that they’re “Asian.” But Pamela Geller and I are just about the only ones who dare to be that accurate and realistic.

The NSO, a registered charity which represents some 130 gurdwaras (temples) and other Sikh organisations in Britain, made the request on Thursday after consultation with the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO).

“British Sikh and Hindu groups have consistently objected to the use of the word ‘Asian’ to describe those convicted in sexual grooming gang cases like in Rochdale, Rotherham, Oxford and Telford,” the NSO said.

Writing on the IPSO’s blog, NSO deputy director Hardeep Singh saidthat during a meeting with the press standards body in July 2018, they had discussed “the use of the vague and expansive term ‘Asian’, and the consequences of ‘Islamophobia’ on other groups like Sikhs, who often find themselves marginalised in press coverage”….
