The recent British media reports on the Rochdale sex gang describing them as Asian are both offensive and unfair. The use of the blanket term Asian by the media to describe these criminals brands all Asians as potential offenders and attributes either implicitly or often explicitly this kind of behavior to Asians in general, which is both racist and offensive to a large section of the law-abiding Asian community.
Why is it that the national press can't bring itself to use the words Pakistani or Afghan sex gangs in their reporting of these cases or more to the point Muslim sex gangs! Why is it in their efforts to be politically correct they must print headlines that not only twist and hide the truth but libel all Indians and Asians in general with racial and criminal slurs of the worst kind. . The offenders in Rochdale and previous Muslim criminal gangs were acting from a religiously inspired cultural perspective that is incompatible with British society and is not shared by the Asian community. Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Christianity all have an older religious and cultural tradition in Asia than Islam with a moral code that is compatible with British law and values. Its disgraceful that the media should use such racial terms to link the sexual abuse crimes committed by these Muslims with all Asians.
I speak as part of a Tamil family whose members fought bravely in the Second World War for the British and are proud of both their cultural heritage and the place they have earned in British society. The people in my community are all more than tired of the problems associated with Muslim drug gangs, Muslim sex gangs and Muslim supporters of terrorist groups. The funds raised by Muslims for Islamic terrorists are used to finance attacks on Indian as well as British innocents; in Mumbai and in London.
The Sikh communitys contribution to British culture and society has also been a loyal and honorable one. How unfair it is to associate them with the kind of behavior we've seen from Muslims? Sikhs also have a long and proud history in both the British and Indian military and as a valued part of British society. A Sikh told me today, the problem lies in the Muslim community and the politically correct left wing press and weak political leaderships failure to do anything about it.
I spoke with a Christian friend from Goa in India today as well , who told me how upset his brother was at being labeled as a sex beast by the British media. His brother had just read a British newspaper article describing all Asians as sex beasts! Buddhists are also upset with the British media calling the British Press racist in their careless and frankly reckless use of the term Asian in reporting these criminal cases.
It not only puts a racial spin on the story which is unjustified but demonizes the whole British Asian community. British Asians are disgusted with the racist slurs and reporting in the UK media. Why do they insist on introducing a racial element where there is none? Why do you not report on the real problems within the Muslim community and Islam? I myself have already complained to the press complaints commission and urge all British Asians to do the same in an effort to put an end to these racial slurs.
That’s what the word YUTES was invented for.
Why don’t they just ute that word instead?
How could "Asian" be a racial term? Between Istanbul and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskii, there are probably dozens if not hundreds of races.
In the Netherland and in France, the (Arab) Muslim rapists are named as “North Africans youths.”
Ethnicities, not races. Up until the PC crowd took over, there were three races. Caucasion, African, and Asian. Asia is a huge continent. Arabs (Near East Asia) to China (Far east Asia) and everthing in between. Muslim is not a race, it is a religious designation.
Here’s an idea - why not tell the truth? They’re muslim sex gangs.
The media caught in their sanitizing of the news. Only when people speak up will they be forced to report the actual news instead of propaganda.
“Asian sex gangs”
Now that we’ve established that PROFILING is acceptable, how about we move right along to ACCURATE?
There’s a lot of irony in this story that the writer seems blissfully unaware of.
The term ‘Asian’ in the UK is used to describe peoples of South Asian descent, ie India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and to a lesser extent Afghans. The reason the press uses this term is because the above mentioned races insisted on it! ‘Asian’ is the politically correct term chosen by British citizens of south Asian descent to replace Pakistani, Bangladeshi and so on when the overly sensitive amongst their number considered these terms to racially ‘delicate’.
So now the press use the cover all term Asian rather than refering to the country of origin or indeed their religion, but only because that is what was demanded.
“Heres an idea - why not tell the truth? Theyre muslim sex gangs.”
I agree, but here’s the problem - we also have Romanian sex gangs. Would you want them to be refered to as christian sex gangs, Romanian sex gangs or east european sex gangs?
Do we go with their religion, their country or their region and do we apply the same rules to everyone?
In England, they don’t use the term “Asian” the same way that we do. They mean Indians, Bengals, Pakistanis, etc when they say Asian, not what we used to call “orientals”, Arabs, or Central Asians.
Even when limited to the Subcontinent, "Asian" is hardly a racial term. There are dozens of races in the region--Tamils, Nagas, Punjabis, Sherpas, etc. Winston Churchill once commented that making India into a nation-state would be like turning the equator into a nation-state.
If their religion or culture or leaders of same sanction the rapes of non-christians similar to how Islam does, sure.
But they don't do they.
Excellent article and post. PC use of euphemisms to hide real problems (and real responsibility !) is disgusting.
its racial ‘cause the media is not calling these scum by their real name — Moslems. The other “Asians” like Sikhs, Hindus etc. aren’t the ones doing this, but get covered by the blanket term “Asian”
you can call the sex gang as Pakis.
Indeed, though the same applies to the US use of ‘Asian’ - there are many races between Mongolia and Indonesia!
When the gangs are driven by the belief of their so-called “religion” in their actions, it is appropriate for their religion to be named. The Romanians aren’t acting in the name of their religion, if they even claim Christianity. The Islamics use their religion as justification of their actions.
The sort of false equivalency you bring to this issue is characteristic of the arguments many on the Left bring to discussions of the problems with Islam.
I didn’t bring any false equivalency - I merely examined the logical use of language used in this case, nor did I state my opinion.
Do we identify people by their religion or by their nationality?
In my opinion we should generally describe people by their nationality, but in the case of Islam there is a strong case for using their religion as above all others, muslims seem to identify with their religion first and their nationality a poor second. I suspect it has a lot to do with the islamic concept of the ummah.
As far as this particular case goes Islam clearly has many ways of encouraging its’ followers to consider infidels below them and that clearly played its part, though I suspect the backward culture of Pakistan and Afghanistan played just as much a part in it.
