MPACUK Take on the EDL & the Police – Stop Islamophobia!

As part of their Stop Islamophobia Week campaign, the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPACUK) took to the streets of the EDL’s heartland, culminating with the local police commander apologising for failing to protect two local Muslims who were hospitalised after an earlier attack by the cretinous EDL.

While Muslims stay pacified sitting in comfort in their masajids debating about the benefits of fasting in the month of Shaban, these handful of Muslims practice what Islam teaches, by standing up to their oppressor and demanding justice.

MPACUK, The Akh salutes you!

The following is taken from the MPACUK website:

Since January, the Beacontree Heath Islamic Society has been harassed by the EDL, so much so that the mosque has not been able to open for prayers.

On 18th June, two Muslim men were attacked by up to 40 EDL members resulting in one of the men having his cheekbone permanently broken.

On both occasions, the mosque has not taken any substantial action due to fear of a reaction from the EDL and the Police have only conducted the most basic of investigations and have not pursued this case the way it should have been.

MPACUK has been disgusted by the Police’s action, or rather their lack of action, and so on Saturday 9th July organised a demonstration from the mosque to Chadwell Heath Police Station to demand to know why they are not taking more effective action against extremist groups like the EDL and also how can they could justify not having enough Police officers on the ground considering that the EDL have been known to target this area over the last 6 months.

We need more action against the EDL and hold the Police to account for not doing more – join our campaign to stop Islamophobia.

It’s All White At Scotland Yard

For the first time in over a decade, the Metropolitan Police biggest gang in Britain have an exclusive all white leadership, after the last coloured ethnic minority officer was forced into retirement.

Acting deputy assistant commissioner Shabir Hussain “left” in February – 18 months after unsuccessfully suing the force for racial discrimination. It means there is no ethnic minority deputy commissioner, assistant commissioners, DACs or commanders among the 45 most senior ranks of the force in London, a city in which more than a quarter of people are non-white.

The institutionally racist MET do not seem to be concerned to change their raison d’etre, as 1999’s Macpherson report recommended.

Shabir Hussain stated he was repeatedly overlooked for promotion in favour of white candidates. He accused Commissioner Sir Ian Blair of excluding black and Asian detectives in favour of a “golden circle” of white officers, before stating:

“My face did not fit and did not fit because I am not white”

and on finding his case was unsuccessful:

“I’m disappointed but the hearing did expose the shortcomings of the promotion process. I aim to carry on with my career as normal”

Within a matter of a few months, deputy assistant commissioner Shabir Hussain took retirement, meaning he was forced to leave his job.

In 2008 Assistant Commissioner Tarique Ghaffur, was the most senior of three minority ethnic officers. Assistant Commissioner Ghaffur became aggrieved at what he felt were repeated snubs, and spectacularly fell out with the then commissioner Sir Ian Blair, and publicly called him a racist.

At the time Assistant Commissioner Ghaffur stated:

“My current case is essentially to do with my treatment at the highest levels of the Met, in particular the discrimination I have been subject to over a long period of time by the present commissioner Sir Ian Blair.

“It is to do with the continuation of that treatment into the very important job I was doing as the co-ordinator of the security and safety of the 2012 Olympics.”

“I feel harassed, degraded and humiliated because I am Asian and Muslim”

A Muslim leading the security at the London Olympics?

The impudence of such a suggestion!

Ghaffur was forced to leave the force with a payout.

Commander Ali Dizaei was also framed and dismissed from his job, there were several allegations laid against him including that Iranian born Dizaei was taking drugs, using prostitutes, fiddling his expenses, fraud, dishonesty and even MI5 suspicions that he was spying for Iran.

Yet despite being the subject of the biggest ever corruption inquiry into a single officer, he always emerged unscathed. On each occasion he was cleared of all charges, my view is that he was subjected to a racist witch hunt that eventually saw him locked up.

The Akh would like to see the make up of the gangsters at the MET reflect that of the people they are supposedly here to protect and serve. All ethnic minority officers should not be elected as “nodding dogs” but be empowered with real decision making powers and be given an equal and fair chance of promotion that is afforded to their white colleagues.

In the meantime, The Akh will reminisce to NWA’s immortal lines, was it really released in 1988? seems like yesterday.

The MET’s Finest Hard At Work

Thief

The UK’s biggest and most sophisticated gang, the London Metropolitan Police, have been taking their war against crime to new levels.

In an effort to teach people not to leave valuable items in their cars, ‘coppers’ will be wandering the streets looking for stuff to steal. If you don’t have your doors locked, the ‘rozzers’ will take your stuff.

Because they’re ‘Five-O’, they’ll also be kind enough to leave a note explaining what happened, but the point is to teach people to be more responsible.

‘Help us to help you,’

Is the message to car owners said Richmond Police Chief Inspector Duncan Slade in a statement.

So far the ‘po-po’ have only committed one robbery, while a couple dozen other potential capers were foiled when the car owners showed up.

In theory the idea seems not only bizarre but hilariously stupid, to see it put out into practice is quite baffling. You would have thought that they would have better things to do, catching drug dealers and foiling terrorist plans and the like, but I guess not.

But if we were wily thieves hearing of this public campaign, we’d just start leaving notes blaming ‘one time’ when we stole stuff….not that you heard me say it.
