Islam in the UK multiculturalism



The Lords & Ladies of multiculturalism will ask you to ”pass the potatoes” when you bring it up, their orthodoxy doesn’t allow for uncomfortable questions.


Minister: Muslim ‘inbreeding’ in Britain is causing massive surge in birth defects

{1}Inbreeding among immigrants is causing a dramatic rise in birth defects, a government minister has warned.

Referring to the culture of Muslim arranged marriages between cousins, environment minister Phil Woolas said: “If you have a child with your cousin the likelihood is there’ll be a genetic problem.”

Mr Woolas, whose views were supported today by medical experts, said the practice did not extend to all Muslim communities and that most cases occur in families from rural Pakistan, where up to half of all marriages are thought to involve first cousins.

According to today’s Sunday Times, the minister, who represents Oldham East and Saddleworth said: “If you talk to any primary care worker they will tell you that levels of disability among the . . . Pakistani population are higher than the general population. And everybody knows it’s caused by first cousin marriage.

“That’s a cultural thing rather than a religious thing. It is not illegal in this country.

“The problem is that many of the parents themselves and many of the public spokespeople are themselves products of first cousin marriages.

“It’s very difficult for people to say ‘you can’t do that’ because it’s a very sensitive, human thing.”

Today he was backed by chief whip Geoff Hoon, who said: “He was commenting on a particular problem about cousins marrying first cousins.

“It is important that we look at that in terms of scientific expertise and the extent to which it is actually causing problems.

“But it obviously is a very sensitive matter and no one, no one, would suggest this is a problem for the wider Muslim community.
