A Biased BBC reader sent me this…
“I watched both Sky and BBC News yesterday to compare their respective ‘takes’ on the Asian rape gang subject. Both reported the sentences and both reported the Judges suggestion that there might have been racial overtones.
BBC interviewed the ex head of Dr Barnardos who reported that there was a known Asian dimension to the matter. And this had been known for some years.
However, Sky interviewed Mohammed Shafiq, the chief executive and a founding member of the Ramadhan Foundation. He made it clear that there is a problem specifically with Pakistani men who detest white girls and consider them useless. Whereas they look up to, and protect girls of their own race. He made it clear that he wanted his views to be spread far and wide, even though they would be unpopular with Pakistanis. He said that ‘Pakistanis need to stand up and be counted on this issue.’
The BBC must have had the same opportunity to report Mr Sadiq’s views, but desided not to do so. Yet this is clearly in the public interest. Once again we see the Corporation in fear of offending any Moslem minority regardless of truth. I have never quite understood what constitutes as hate crime. However, if Mr Sadiq is correct, then surely this atrocity should be considered as one.”
