The Rise and Fall of a British Muslim MP

The election in May of 1997 of Mohammad Sarwar, a Pakistan-born Muslim, to British Parliament was hailed as a momentous event in British history. Taken as a sign of cross-cultural tolerance, Sarwar’s success was seen by many as an important milestone on the country’s road to becoming a truly multicultural society.

Eager to assert his Muslim identity from early on, Sarwar took the oath of office on the Koran, bucking a centuries’ old tradition of pledging allegiance to the Queen. Ever mindful of the sanctity of that Holy Writ, Sarwar insisted that the book be placed inside a protective envelope so as not to be accidentally "touched by one not of the faith."

Ten years on, Mohammad Sarwar has announced his intention to resign his seat. His decision comes after a two-year long campaign of death threats and abuse that made him fear not only for his own life but also for those of his children and grandchildren.

Many will be surprised to learn that this campaign of intimidation was not carried out by some native racists or extreme British nationalists, but by Sarwar’s fellow Muslims. But we can only fully appreciate the full import of this affair when we learn what has so enraged his co-religionists.

Who ever that is surprised, stand up right now, look for the most painful place in your house that you can run in to AND GO FOR IT!

When will people learn? I don't mind over people having a faith- as long as the faith has interchangible common rules with democrathic and humanistic values, But when it doesn't - I just feel ready to pick out my trusty old G3 assault rifle, just to make a point!

Just kidding, I would'nt do that. Because I'm civilised!

No, Angel, Britain is not yet lost.

It just goes to show you, Pela, the biggest danger to a Muslim is other Muslims. The moral of the story is don't convert to Islam!
