Rapes are soaring in Britain’s multicultural capital under Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan — but police claim they have no idea what could be behind the increase.
7,613 rapes were recorded in Sadiq Khan’s London in the 12 months to the end of January 2018, compared with 6,392 over the previous year — a rise of almost 20 per cent, the Evening Standard reports.
Some have attempted to attribute the rise to victims being more confident in coming forward, but Khan’s Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Sophie Linden, has admitted that the figures could point to a legitimate “increase in actual sexual violence and rape offending”.
Deputy Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police force Sir Craig Mackey, too, has confessed that “there is something going on with sexual offending in London” — but claimed to be none the wiser when asked at the London Assembly if he could explain what was behind the rise.
“No, is the honest answer. It’s not as simple as saying this is increased confidence. Of course, that plays a part but there is something going on with sexual offending in London that we don’t fully understand, the causes of it. We see the end of it, [but] we don’t understand the causes.”
Sir Craig’s failure to consider the negative impact on social and inter-community cohesion on London after decades of mass migration and state-sponsored multiculturalism — cheered on by Mayor Khan and his political fellow-travellers — echoes the comments of his superior, Cressida Dick, on the arrival of grooming gangs in the capital.
Commissioner Dick appeared unwilling to accept that there was any racial or cultural angle to the fact that some 84 per cent of groomers have turned out to be Muslims of South Asian extraction, and their victims overwhelmingly non-Muslim — prompting fears that the authorities are still bound by the same politically correct dogma which stopped crimes from being investigated in cities like Rotherham and Rochdale for years.
“I don’t think this was a phenomenon invented in the last few years – it really wasn’t – it has been part of our society for probably centuries and centuries and centuries,” she insisted — despite the fact the Muslim population was under 1 per cent within living memory.
The problem of rape in London is not expected to improve any time soon, with a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police saying the force expects numbers to continue rising for the next two to five years.
Nottingham Crown Court Spares Child Rapists from Prison Because He Is Muslim
A judge has caused outrage after letting a Muslim pedophile off without a prison sentence because his religious education had not taught him that raping 13-year-old girls is wrong.
Adil Rashid, 18, who was educated in an Islamic faith school in Britain, told the judge that he had been taught “women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground” and that he was reluctant to have sex with the 13-year-old girl, but he was “tempted” by her after she “seduced” him.
Judge Michael Stokes of Nottingham Crown Court, England, found Adil Rashid guilty of child rape, but only handed him a suspended sentence, stating: “It is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.”
Earlier Nottingham Crown Court heard that such crimes usually result in a four to seven-year prison sentence.
The Daily Mail reports the judge said that because Rashid was “passive” and “lacking assertiveness”, sending him to jail might cause him “more damage than good”.
Rashid, from Birmingham, admitted he had sex with the girl, saying he had been “tempted by her” after they met online.
They initially exchanged messages on Facebook before sending texts and chatting on the phone over a two-month period. They then met up in Nottingham, where Rashid had booked a room at a Premier Inn.
The girl told police they stayed at the hotel for two hours and had sex after Rashid went to the bathroom and emerged wearing a condom.
Rashid then returned home and went straight to a mosque to pray. He was arrested the following week after the girl confessed what had happened to a school friend, who informed one of her teachers.
He told police he knew the girl was 13 but said he was initially reluctant to have sex before relenting after being seduced.
Earlier the court heard how Rashid had ‘little experience of women’ due to his education at an Islamic school in the UK, which cannot be named for legal reasons.
After his arrest, he told a psychologist that he did not know having sex with a 13-year-old was against the law. The court heard he found it was illegal only when he was informed by a family member.
In other interviews with psychologists, Rashid claimed he had been taught in his school that ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground’.
When Judge Stokes said Rashid ‘must have known it was illegal, unless he was going round with his eyes shut’, defence lawyer Laban Leake said reports suggested Rashid had a ‘degree of sexual naivety’.
‘The school he attended, it is not going too far to say, can be described as a closed community and on this occasion this was perpetuated by his home life.
‘It is not too far to say that he may not have known that having sex with a 13-year-old girl was illegal.’ Judge Stokes sentenced Rashid to nine months youth custody, suspended for two years, along with a two-year probation supervision order.
Describing Rashid, the judge said: ‘He’s had an unusual education, certainly in terms of the sexual education provided. Comparing women to lollipops is a very curious way of teaching young men about sex.’
But he said that Rashid knew what he was doing was wrong.
Addressing Rashid, the judge said: ‘I accept this was a case where the girl was quite willing to have sexual activity with you. But the law is there to protect young girls, even though they are perfectly happy to engage in sexual activity.’
Judge Michael Stokes of Nottingham Crown Court was clearly duped…
