There was trouble in Leicester on the 15th January as a reported 40 local Sikhs took to the streets to shut down a Muslim restaurant where an alleged child sex gang were allegedly based.
This incident followed reports in Leicester that a local Sikh girl had allegedly been raped by Muslim men allegedly linked to the restaurant and the police had done nothing.
Following the events of Monday evening, the local police had the following to say; "We are aware of a number of rumours and misinformation which is circulating within the communities in Leicester.
"Firstly, a rumour that a Sikh girl has been raped and Leicestershire Police has done nothing despite being in possession of video evidence of that rape. This is not true.
"Reports that a Sikh girl has been snatched from outside a gurdwara in Leicester are also false.”
Further to this, police have arrested a number of Sikh locals allegedly involved in shutting down the restaurant, and have tried to hold ‘peace talks’ with the local Sikh and Muslim communities – not what is needed when there are alleged Muslim paedophile gangs on the streets targeting local non-Muslim girls. What is needed is swift and decisive action from the police to stop these alleged gangs from operating.
Nick Griffin MEP had the following comment to make following the latest incident in Leicester:
“Britain's Sikh community has a well-deserved reputation for being good, law-abiding citizens. This incident is therefore shows very clearly just how angry and desperate they are over the woeful failure of the police to deal with the widespread problem of sexual predation by a criminal element within the Muslim community.
“Rather than condemning people who feel driven by the plight of vulnerable young girls to take the law into their own hands, the media and political class need to reflect on the role of their own cowardly silence in creating the situation.
“In particular, we understand the burning anger among Sikhs over the dishonest and racist police and media policy of referring to the criminals as 'Asian', thereby implying that Sikhs and Hindus are among the perpetrators rather than the victims alongside members of the indigenous community.
“Finally, young Sikhs must now expect a wave of police pressure intended to push them back into inactivity. They face being persecuted because their community is now exercising the right to self-defence that is triggered by the failure of the police to do their job. My advice to young Sikhs arrested in these circumstances is the same as to those of our people arrested for defending our community:
"Jo kuch tu kehna, kuch ma kehna." - "Whatever you say, say nothing!"
