Fear of racism allegations linked to silence of sexual abuse, trafficking of 1400 children by Muslims

The sexual abuse and the trafficking of  at least 1400 children went unreported in the United Kingdom due to fears of being branded racist for identifying the perpetrators as Muslim men.

“Children as young as 11 were trafficked, beaten, and raped by large numbers of men between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, the council commissioned review into child protection revealed,” reports the Daily Mail.

The report details that “several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist.”

Victims were reportedly covered in gasoline, threatened to be burned alive, threatened with guns, raped and warned of worse if they spoke publicly.

The fact that the majority of the men involved in raping and trafficking the children were of Pakistani origin led to failures on behalf of the council to report on the culture of “gang rape” that had taken hold in the area, while police also ignored the reports.

The figure of 1400 children raped and beaten is a conservative figure, with the final total expected to be higher.

 “No-one knows the true scale of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham over the years. Our conservative estimate is that approximately 1,400 children were sexually exploited over the full inquiry period, from 1997 to 2013,” Professor Jay stated.

The story follows similar high-profile incidents in other UK cities where young girls and children have been victims of Asian rape gangs, with authorities turning a blind eye in many cases.

Muhbeen Hussain, founder of Rotherham Muslim Youth Group, told the Daily Mirror on Wednesday that Muslims are disgusted that justice was not done.

“Race, religion or political correctness should never provide a cloak of invisibility to such grotesque crimes.”

District Commander for Rotherham, Ch Supt Jason Harwin said: “Firstly I’d like to start by offering an unreserved apology to the victims of child sexual exploitation who did not receive the level of service they should be able to expect from their local police force.

“We fully acknowledge our previous failings.”

Ch Supt Harwin said the force had “overhauled” the way it dealt with such cases and had successfully prosecuted a number of abusers.

But he admitted: “I accept that our recent successes… will not heal the pain of those victims who have been let down.”
