All thanks to our feckless political leaders who are ideologically bound and impenetrable by fact.
Years of permissive multiculturalism is to blame for the rise of Sharia courts and the Rotherham rape scandal, an academic claimed yesterday.
Dr Rumy Hasan, a senior lecturer at the University of Sussex’s Centre for Migration Research, said “do-what-you-want” and “laissez-faire” policies had let immigrant communities live as if they were still in countries such as Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
This has led to a “psychiatric detachment” from mainstream British culture, he added, which in turn leads to a “social detachment” where minority communities do not mix with wider society.
Dr Hasan – who is a former Muslim – also said that Muslim rape gangs in towns such as Rochdale and Rotherham were an “inevitable consequence” of this.
The Sun quotes him as saying: “The authorities in towns and cities — Rochdale, Rotherham, Oxford, Oldham, Birmingham — kept quiet because they were embarrassed.
“It’s time we woke up and smelled the coffee.”
