Six down many more to go

Another day another trial for child prostitution and yet again some good 'English' names are sent away to contemplate their crimes...
Six men have been jailed for paying or offering to pay a "vulnerable and damaged" 16-year-old girl for sex.
Leicester Crown Court heard she had been used as a "sexual commodity" and left with internal injuries.
The girl told the men she was a prostitute, but the judge said they should have seen she was vulnerable and helped her.
The men, whose ages range from 20 to 39, were jailed for between eight months and five years.
Three pleaded guilty at their first appearance at Leicester Crown Court and three pleaded guilty part-way through a trial.
Judge Michael Pert QC said: "This case is a classic example of the need for the law to protect young girls from their own folly as well as from their exploitation by men."
Aabidali Mubarak Ali, Rakib Iacub, Hamza Imtiazali, Bharat Modhwadia, Chandresh Mistry and Wajid Usman all pleaded guilty to various charges.
The odd thing about this trial is that not all were muslims, one at least was a Sikh and frankly this is disturbing as I and many other hold Sikh's up to far higher standards of behaviour than muslims. The victim herself was also a Sikh and frankly you'd expect that Rakib Iacub should have known better. Two other names suggest non-islamic roots in the Indian sub-continent as well. It does however appear that Aabidali Mubarak Ali a muslim was responsible once he had his claws into the young teen in "spreading the word" about her to others.
It's also notable that the Sikh community took the law into their own hands and attacked the restaurant where the men were indulging in their lusts. One wonders what the headlines would have been had the EDL done some such thing?
But I expect we all know what the results of that would have been form the reaction of the law and the press over the London riots to patriotic Englishmen (and women) defending their homes compared to Turks or Sikhs. They get praised, we get criticised...

Good point.

Re the alleged involvement of a Sikh in this crime, it does well to remember that whatever group we come from, there are always some who are going to be 'wrong 'uns'. If there is a Sikh involved then I wouldn't want to be that person when other Sikhs catch up with him.

It needs to be said however, that in many areas of life, Sikhs have consistently held standards much, much higher than that of British Muslims.

One bad apple really doesn't spoil the whole bunch, and that applies to many of the people who have made Britain and who have contributed to this nation, but when we look into the Islam barrel we see a greater amount of rotten fruit when compared to wholesome fruit.

I have become convinced that good people who are Muslim are good in spite of Islam and not because of it.
