DEMONISED, OSTRICISED, VICTIMISED: Rotherham Muslim group refuses to co-operate with South Yorkshire Police and threatens to abandon any Muslim that does
I’m not sure who is advising British Muslim Youth in Rotherham, but last night they inflicted significant damage upon their own reputation, and now risk bringing Rotherham’s entire Muslim community into disrepute.
A statement made yesterday made it clear that the group, whose slogan is: ‘those of peace, harmony unity and tolerance’ has pulled down the shutters on the law, refusing to co-operate with South Yorkshire Police.
Police seek talks following Rotherham Muslim boycott
Police are seeking urgent talks with leaders of Rotherham’s Muslim community over a boycott of the force.
Rotherham Muslim Community Forum Alliance (RMCFA) announced it would “cut all lines of engagement” with South Yorkshire Police from Monday.
Force Ch Supt Jason Harwin said he was “surprised” that the issues had not been raised before.
