Tory deception!

We believe that no community should be taken for granted or hoodwinked, even in a political manoeuvring.

Having alienated Muslims, now the Home Secretary in a vote grabbing and tokenistic move says, and some Tory Muslim opportunists propagate, that attacks on Muslims will become specific hate crime, which many believe is not enough to repair the ongoing damage to the Muslim community’s image due to the socio-political and media doings!

Only within days of this political gesture, spot light shines on Muslims again in terms of the warning over Islamic radicalisation in England's prisons: staff shortages are making it harder to tackle Islamic radicalisation, the former head of the National Counter Terrorism Security Office has warned.

The Home Secretary has already said she wants new "extremism officer" roles in prisons to deal with radicalisation.

.Home Secretary’s almost daily statements regarding  Muslim ‘radicalism’/ ‘extremism’, symptomatic of Islamofobia  and this government’s hastily pushed pieces of legislation regarding these, not only have serious implications for the Muslim community image but give a sense of this government’s hostile  attitudes towards the Muslims community.

In calculating its votes, Conservatives have been over-reacting to what appears to be concerns but are seemingly the pressure by anti-Muslim lobby,  that not enough has been done to counter-extremism

Consequently, the Muslim community emerges as potentially undermining the security of Britain from within, needing correction and assimilation into some assumed British socio-political norms that dictate home and foreign policies.

The government's definition of extremism has become so wide in recent years that people can be arrested for bringing to their lips what is in their heart regarding what is happening to Muslims, and their norms and values.

The government’s recent  new counter-extremism strategy includes a requirement that staff at job centres identify vulnerable claimants who may become targets for radicalisation; colleges, schools, prisons and councils face a new legal duty to prevent people being drawn into terrorism – a sort of Disclosure under the Child Protection arrangements;  investigating the alleged infiltration of Muslims into positions of authority such as governing boards and local councils, all because of the perceived situations at few schools in Birmingham; and reviewing Shariah councils which are used by Muslims to adjudicate on civil matters.
