Concerns on the grooming issue pouring in
Nick Griffin, MEP, has received many letters showing concern over the recent grooming trials in Heywood, Leeds, Burnley and Oxford.
This person and many others are disgusted that men are grooming and raping vulnerable girls, using takeaways to draw them in and taxis to transport them to sex houses where they are abused, raped and threatened.
He also feels it is wrong to describe the Pakistani men as Asians, because he feels it is an insult to those who are in the Sikh, Hindu and Chinese communities.
He makes the point that while the press describe these incidents as ‘rare’, he feels they have indeed been occurring over the years and this is not a new crime. He asks for the community to Stop and Spot these horrific crimes and wants more education to happen in the communities.
Nick’s Outreach Officer has responded on behalf of Nick Griffin MEP to these letters:
"Thank you for your email regarding the Muslim grooming scandal. Mr Griffin has asked me to reply to you on his behalf.
Nick Griffin and the British National Party have been working for many years to draw attention to the problem of predominantly Muslim paedophile gangs who prey particularly on young white girls.
"While he recognises, of course, that the majority of Muslims are appalled by the activities of grooming gangs, there is a clear association between the cultural traditions of Islam and an apparent disrespect for young white girls who display supposedly “decadent” Western behaviour.
"Research carried out in 2011 by Mr Griffin’s North West European Parliamentary Constituency team showed that the authorities are in denial that any significant problem exists. It was clear from the responses to Freedom of Information requests received that the police, criminal justice agencies and child protection services are reluctant to tackle grooming by Muslim gangs because of its politically sensitive nature. Fears of accusations of “racism” have fuelled a culture of silence and the consequent inaction of the authorities has left young victims exposed to continued abuse.
"In Mr Griffin’s view, it is absolutely scandalous that fears of being branded racist continue to prevent the police from protecting vulnerable children from sexual abuse and bringing the perpetrators to justice. He is committed, as a Member of the European Parliament, to continue his high-profile campaign until the problem of Muslim on-street grooming is fully recognised and effectively addressed."
The response goes on to highlight campaigns which are happening all over Britain to tackle this issue:
"The next Justice 4 Charlene demonstration is planned for Saturday 9th June in Blackpool. One of the men suspected of murdering 14 year-old Charlene Downes in 2003 has opened another restaurant in Blackpool. Such premises often act as “honey pots” where young girls are plied with alcohol and drugs as part of the grooming process before they are sexually abused. The aim of the demonstration is to draw public attention to the risk this new restaurant poses to young girls."
