Muslim Leaders Just Issued A Haunting Threat To Britain Over Muhammed Cartoons
The 'Religion of Peace' at work, threatening more violence.
“All we ask for is a bit of respect,” said Adil Shahzad, imam of the Al-Hikam Institute in Bradford. It sounds incredibly reasonable, until the follow-up. “If one teacher can [show cartoons of Muhammed], another teacher can do it five years down the line, and we do not want this to be the case. Otherwise we are not responsible for the actions of some individuals.”
The haunting, scarcely veiled threat came days after mounting protests over a teacher sharing a cartoon of Muhammad at a school in Bradford in the North of England.
“We’re hoping that the school will do the right thing [over the cartoons],” Shahzad also said, “…because if this is the first case, which it is in this country, then it’s very likely that we will follow the route that France has taken, for example, or other European countries where firstly it’s ‘let’s insult the prophet’, then we’ll start banning the burqa.”
France has also experienced a whopping number of gruesome, Islamic-inspired terrorist attacks. Most of the British public have long believed the burqa – an oppressive, Islamic face covering for women – should be banned. Fifty-one percent said so in 2006, and 59 percent said so in 2018.
The number of Muslims in the United Kingdom passed the three million mark in 2020.
In 2015, radical Muslims murdered 12 people after the satirical French magazine Charlie Hebdo exercised its free speech by publishing cartoons of Muhammed.
In 2020, French teacher Samuel Paty was murdered after showing students the Hebdo cartoons as part of learning about free speech.
