95% of Child Rape convictions were committed by Muslims, it is bad reporting.


95% of Child Rape and Molestation Convictions in the UK Were Committed by Muslims, reports a right wing British site. 

First of all, the entire humanity in general, and Muslims in particular need to condemn these rogues and punish them to the maximum the British Law allows.

Secondly, it is the responsibility of the society to prevent build up of prejudices towards any single group by their religion. Ultimately we need to work towards shaping cohesive societies where no human has to live in apprehension or fear of the other.  Evil attitudes like Homophobia, Misogyny, Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and Xenophobia destroy the fabric of the society.
There is a lot more by those who want to spread hate and divide the nation.  I do not respond to any one, they are a dime by dozen, however, a friend requested and hence this note.
Thirdly, blaming religion is the dumbest things that there is, men commit crimes, not religions. You can punish the individuals and restore faith in the society – like arresting a rapist in a neighborhood relieves people of the anxieties, however if you blame the religion, you cannot beat, kill, shoot, bury and hang religion – and it does not restore a sense of safety, it flares up insecurity in the society. Blame the criminal and not his parents, siblings, spouse, kids, mayor, minister or the religion.

If I get a chance, I will question the reporting methodology.

Look at the shameful reporting, “95% of Child Rape and Molestation Convictions in the UK Were Committed by Muslims “that is based on report of 17 prosecuted.  Doesn’t it sound like 95% of 2.7 Million British Muslims or British Pakistanis are rapists? This is ridiculous!

Just Google it – I went to wiki, there were 330 other cases… and you will find a whole lot more.

The question is do we need to allow stupidity that endangers the lives of 2.7 Million British Muslim for the acts of 17 Muslims? New York (Google it) had 1162 Rapes and 419 Murders in 2012 – should we report New Yorkers are rapists and murderers?

 These are the results of an investigation into “Child Grooming” (Child Rape and Molestation) in the UK. 17 Cases were investigated between the years of: November 1997 – July 2013.

Here is from Wikipedia, and there is plenty of information available.

Cost and revenue of a human trafficker

In 2012, a report showed that most victims being trafficked into the United Kingdom were from China, Vietnam and Eastern Europe. According to Rosa Silverman, the revenue generated by one sex worker was estimated to be £48,000; therefore, the market is worth tens of millions of pounds. The reported sales value of a victim in the United Kingdom is usually between £3000 and £4000.[8]


The British government continued its proactive law enforcement efforts to combat trafficking.[9] The UK prohibits all forms of trafficking through the Sexual Offences Act 2003,[10] the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2003[11] and the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Act 2004.[12] These prescribe penalties of a maximum of 14 years’ imprisonment, although the specific punishments prescribed for sex trafficking are less severe than those prescribed for rape.[13]

A study conducted by the government in 2007 identified a minimum of 330 individual cases of children trafficked into the UK and, the same year, the government reported prosecutions involving at least 52 suspected trafficking offenders. Although the government reported 75 ongoing prosecutions during the previous reporting period, it convicted only ten trafficking offenders in 2007, a significant decrease from 28 convictions obtained in 2006. Sentences imposed on convicted trafficking offenders in 2007 ranged from 20 months’ to 10 years’ imprisonment, with an average sentence of four years.[9] In one case in 2008 in the U.K., girls were trafficked for forced prostitution and a man was sentenced to 10 years in prison[14] In January 2008, police arrested 25 members of Romanian organized crime organizations using Romanian children, including a baby less than a year old, as pickpockets and in begging schemes.[9] The Rochdale sex trafficking gang, a group of predominantly British Pakistani paedophiles that preyed on under-age girls in Rochdale, were the first people in Britain to be convicted of sex trafficking, on 8 May 2012[15]

I am committed to build cohesive societies, where we blame the wrong doer, punish him/her, restore trust in the society and fight against stereotyping Atheists, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Sikhs, Mexicans, Native Americans, Pagans, and Wicca – the most vulnerable of communities.
