Attacks on Muslims will become specific hate crimes, said Tories in their bid to establish full extent of Islamophobia in Britain.
That’s right, speak no evil about the evil ones.
British Home Secretary, Theresa May, declares that acts of “Islamophobia,” both verbal and physical, will be ruled as ‘hate’ crimes the same as assault or grievous bodily harm.
The new requirement will create the first accurate picture of the extent of Islamophobic hate crimes in Britain.
Every police force in England and Wales will be required to record anti-Muslim hate crimes and treat them seriously if the Tories win the next General Election.
Some forces, including London’s Metropolitan Police, do record Islamophobic crimes as such. Other forces categorise them as hate crimes or specific offences such as assault or grievous bodily harm.
CAIR, (Council on American-Islamic Relations) who the national Muslim United Arab Emirates designated as a terrorist group due to their ties to Hamas, is doing the happy dance over this announcement.
Mrs. May made her pledge in a speech on counter-extremism to the Foundation for Peace in London just before Parliament was dissolved.
She told the conference: ‘We will require police forces to record anti-Muslim crimes as well as anti-Semitic crimes.’
On the same day, Mrs May answered a question from Labour MP Kate Green in Parliament, who asked what steps the Government was taking to record anti-Muslim hate crimes.
Mrs May said: ‘A Conservative government would require the police to be recording Muslim hate crime, anti-Muslim incidents, as well as anti-Semitic incidents.’
The Home Office does not publish national statistics for Islamophobic offences.
But in 2013-14, police recorded 44,480 hate crimes, an increase of five per cent over the same period the previous year across England and Wales. The vast majority – 37,484 – were race-hate crimes.
Winston Churchill would be in prison under this new British “islamophobia” law being proposed by the so-called ‘conservative’ Cameron government.
So would Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
This is an acceptable form of free speech.
