Forced marriage is rape, but Brit Muslims see nothing wrong in it, and as you’d expect Blair’s government is cool with that.
The Home Office has decided a specific law to ban forced marriages in the UK is not needed.
About 300 forced marriages are reported to the authorities every year – often involving people from Britain’s South Asian community.
South Asian is BBC-eze for Muslim. If they’ve been doing this for 10 years, that’s 3,000 cumulative forced marriages, and 3,000 serial rapes each year – almost half the UK’s official rate of about 8,500 rapes a year.
But instead of stopping this wave of abuse by locking the rapists up:
Ministers had asked groups and individuals if there should be a law criminalising the act of forcing someone into marriage.
Most thought the disadvantages of a new law would outweigh the advantages, and possibly drive the practice of forced marriages underground.
Who are the people consulted by Blair’s ministers who want to keep this practice “above ground”?
Pragna Patel, chair of the group, told Radio 4 that existing laws were sufficient.
“We don’t see the need for criminalisation of forced marriage, which is yet another way of stereotyping and criminalising entire communities at a time when there is heightened racism in this country.”
Sadly for Ms. P and her co-religionists, Brits will take a stereotypical view of the “communities” that sanction this barbaric practice.
