Grooming gangs disgrace our Pakistani heritage, says Javid

p0664r7p

Sajid Javid has said Pakistani members of grooming gangs have “disgraced our heritage” and that there “must be some cultural connection” to their crimes.

The home secretary was criticised for his reaction to the jailing of 20 men in Huddersfield for drugging, trafficking and raping vulnerable girls.

“These sick Asian paedophiles are finally facing justice,” he tweeted last week. “There will be no no-go areas.” David Lammy, the Labour MP for Tottenham, was among those who attacked Mr Javid, whose parents moved to the UK from Pakistan, for drawing attention to the ethnicity of the gang.

Sajid Javid interview – the home secretary on Asian grooming gangs, Brexit and leadership ambitions

I arrive to meet Sajid Javid well versed in the details of his back story. I know, for instance, that his late father, Abdul Ghani, landed at Heathrow airport in 1961 with a £1 note in his pocket and lifted his five sons and wife out of poverty through sheer toil – working, variously, as a bus driver, factory worker and shop owner. I realise that unlike most Tory ministers, Javid grew up in the inner city, was raised Muslim, was the first member of his family to attend university and went to a comprehensive school, where careers advisers suggested he become a television repairman.

  1. There is surely no reason why one man should not criticise another if the subject of the criticism has been tried and found guilty of a crime.

    In the case in question, all the men were found guilty of the most heinous crimes against young girls; I would guess that if the men in question were to be incarcerated in a women’s prison, they’d be given short shrift and sharp justice.

  3. Javid has every right to speak out, only politically correct Labour politicians would consider it appropriate to criticise him for making a very valid point.

    If local politicians had the guts to speak out when children were being abused in Rotherham the criminals could have been brought to justice much earlier.

    Instead all we had from local Labour was a closing of ranks, institutional political correctness and and a total disregard for the safety and well-being of vulnerable children.

    To add insult to injury to the Rotherham victims I understand that one of the Labour politicians who attended the briefing on the crimes in Rotherham has now been promoted to a senior role within the Read led administration, that must be fake news, even labour would not be that crass and insensitive, or would they?
