This is how Islam spread…..and by the sword.
‘Go away, you shouldn’t be here. Don’t come back’: SUE REID describes how a teenage boy in Islamic robes SPAT at her in the corner of Yorkshire that has almost no white residents
There are almost no white residents to be found in Savile Town. A detailed breakdown of the last census of 2011 recorded that only 48 of the 4,033 people living here were white British.
Stand in Savile Town, as I have, and you will see scores of boys in Islamic robes walking to and from lessons at the mosque’s madrasah school, where for hours at a time they rote-learn the Koran by heart.
And, distressingly, every girl I saw – even those of six and seven playing in the park – was wrapped up in a hijab and shoulder-to-toe-gown lest a man glimpse her flesh.
When I myself walked down South Street towards the mosque, figures in burkas peered out of their lace-curtained windows in surprise at seeing an uncovered woman’s face.
I asked one tall teenager, wearing an Islamic cap and white robes over his jeans, for directions to the mosque entrance. His response was to spit at me and shout: ‘Go away, you shouldn’t be here. Don’t come back.’
It is depressing to be confronted with such aggression. And I’ve no doubt many Muslims, too, will feel distressed at such behaviour. Not all British followers of Islam wish to live in areas where people of other faiths or cultures might fear to tread.
Yet in places such as Savile Town, the omens are not good.
