POLITICAL SUICIDE FOR THE TORRIES? One can only hope. Home Secretary, Theresa May, declares that from now on, “Islamophobia” will be a ‘hate’ crime on par with assault or grievous bodily harm.
UK Daily Mail (h/t Siegen2) In a move hailed by Islamic groups, especially Islamic terrorist groups, Home Secretary Theresa May said that police will have to record Islamophobic (verbal and physical) attacks as a separate category.
At present some forces, including London’s Metropolitan Police, do record Islamophobic crimes as such. Other forces categorise them as hate crimes or specific offences such as assault or grievous bodily harm.
The new requirement will create the first accurate picture of the extent of Islamophobic hate crimes in Britain.
Phoney Muslim Charities say there has been a steady rise of anti-Muslim (mostly verbal or graffiti) hate crimes since 9/11.
But after incidents such as the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby outside Woolwich barracks in 2013 and the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January, there are spikes in incidents in the UK, say experts.
Mrs May made her pledge in a speech on counter-extremism to the Foundation for Peace in London just before Parliament was dissolved.
She told the conference: ‘We will require police forces to record anti-Muslim crimes (including what YOU deem ‘hate’ speech?)’
On the same day, Mrs May answered a question from Labour MP Kate Green in Parliament, who asked what steps the Government was taking to record anti-Muslim hate crimes.
Mrs May said: ‘A Conservative government would require the police to be recording Muslim hate crime, anti-Muslim incidents.’
The Home Office does not publish national statistics for Islamophobic offences.
Tell Mama, (a phony Muslim civil rights organization defunded by the UK government because of fraud in inflating the numbers of anti-Muslim crimes) figures show that in the ten months after the Lee Rigby attack, a total of 734 incidents were reported to the organization – an increase of 20 per cent on the same period the previous year.
So, apparently, the justified anti-Muslim reaction after the beheading of British soldier, Lee Rigby, in a London street will now be considered a ‘hate’ crime under British law.
But this will not:
This man should be arrested for ‘hate’ crimes against the British people:
