Last Friday Nicky Campbell was asking if we should ban the Muslim face veil of whatever configuration.
Who did he have on as the ‘pro-Veil’ advocates?
The main one was Mohammed Ansar, Muslim activist….a regular on the BBC and on very friendly terms with Campbell.
Harry’s Place has a short run down on some of Ansar’s activities, along with those of Mohammed Shafiq…from one of the BBC’s other favourite Muslim advocacy groups ‘The Ramadan Foundation’.
Ansar is not in favour of ‘integration’ preferring to tell us that we must just accept Muslims and their religion because of their ‘contributions’….er…their contributions in the Muslim ‘Golden Age’..and of course what they can do for us now.

Not exactly ‘moderates’.
There was also a caller calling herself ‘Leila’ from London who was given a lot of airtime…she said that she was a ‘revert’ which should have immediately alerted Campbell that she was not an ‘ordinary’ Muslim.
Reverts are Converts to Islam…but named Reverts usually by the extremist groups such as Islam4UK…they like to tell us that everyone is a Muslim but that many have let it slip…so when they ‘convert’ they are really just ‘reverting’ to their natural religion.
Leila said she had been a Muslim for 13 years and had protested at the French Embassy in London in 2011 about the veil ban in France.
Pretty clear that she is closely associated with an extremist Muslim group…but Campbell didn’t pick that up at all.
So Ansar and this ‘Leila’ are on the BBC representing the ‘Muslim community’.
Funny how the BBC so often tells us that extremists don’t represent the ‘Muslim community’ and are in fact perverting and distorting Islam and its teachings.
