‘Myths’ by Muslims hit Prevent campaign to fight terror

Islamist groups blamed for undermining police

Islamist groups in Britain are undermining the fight against terrorism by peddling “myths” about the government’s key anti-radicalisation policy, according to the country’s most prominent Muslim lawyer.

Nazir Afzal, a former chief crown prosecutor, warned that an “industry” of Muslim groups was spreading misinformation about the Prevent strategy.

Mr Afzal, who prosecuted the Rochdale sex-grooming gang, also condemned “self-appointed” community leaders whose sole agenda was to present Muslims “as victims and not as those who are potentially becoming radicals”.

He singled out the Islamist-dominated Muslim Council of Britain, saying he was staggered that in the agenda for its annual general meeting last year there was “nothing about radicalisation and nothing about the threat of people going to Syria”.

Nazir Afzal interview: ‘Muslims are offered a cause to die for; I would give them something to live for’

Radicalisation is a critical issue on which Nazir Afzal refuses to be silenced

Nazir Afzal likes to speak his mind and last week it cost him his job. After the Manchester atrocity he was asked to appear on Question Time on BBC One alongside the home secretary, Amber Rudd, and the mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.

The corporation wanted his unique perspective. He is a former chief crown prosecutor who has successfully prosecuted Islamists for terrorism offences. He campaigns for the victims of crimes based on “imported cultural baggage”. He is an expert on deradicalisation.

He lives in Manchester and he is a Muslim. Until last week he was also the chief executive of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC).

  1. Always the same with the Muslims, shift the blame elsewhere. However I do agree, with those who say the Prevent policy, isn’t working. You can’t prevent someone being radicialised, if they already think that way, by indoctrination of their religion and culture.

    Everybody seems to think, these Muslims behaviour, is a reaction to a precieved wrong, committed by we in the west, againist their fellow Muslims abroad. Let’s be frank here, most of these knobheads, who feel their religion and culture, has been slighted in some way, don’t actually won’t to live that way, in the first place. Hence they choose their residence in good old tolerant western countries.

    If your brought up to view other people’s, cultures and religions, as beneath you, and yours is the only one, then we, who choose another way are Kafars. They treat their own women, as second class entities, not worthy as their equal. Other women , are viewed as slaggs. Least we say, they view little girls, especially, little whites, as there to be abused.

    And when they feel like it, they want to kill us. Enough excuses, the solution is simple. Intergrate and reform, your backward culture or go back to home, you’ve worn your welcome out!!
