From The Telegraph;
The security services repeatedly prevented Scotland Yard from pursuing criminal investigations against hate preacher Anjem Choudary, it has been claimed.
Met counter-terror officers often felt they enough evidence to build a case against the radicalising cleric, only to be told to hang fire by MI5, because he was crucial to one of their on-going investigations, a source has claimed.
The situation led to tension between the two sides with police feeling “frustrated” that Choudary was not being brought to justice, the source added.
The ‘Islamic communities’, in the UK, have long been blamed for not stopping this man, but the reality seems to be that this media darling was being ‘protected’ by Government agencies who were trying to play a long game with him whilst Muslims bore the brunt of his horrific words in the form of rampant Islamophobia.
From the BBC News:
Muslim Women’s Network UK demanded an inquiry into “systematic misogyny displayed by significant numbers of Muslim male local councillors”.
“They don’t like women to be heard, to be empowered,” it told BBC Newsnight.
Jean Khote, a sitting Labour councillor in Leicester, said good women candidates were barred by the membership in some areas with high Muslim populations – and that was kept from people higher up the party.
The mindsets of the Muslim men who came from Pakistan are in full affect in local politics in the UK.
There is no room in Islam for this kind of systematic abuse of women, cultural mindsets like this though are hard to break and I believe that there is little chance these men will ever change their ways, but this being the UK, these women at least have a way to protest to have these matters investigated and hopefully changed so that the next Muslim women who wants to stand can do so without being threatened and slandered.
