Muslim Slavery mother-in-law divides town

The fact that the town is divided over this issue says a lot about Muslims in the UK.

Take a look at the picture accompanying this BBC report and then read the first paragraph of the report.

"On the surface Naseebah Bibi did not appear to be an out-of-the-ordinary figure."


Only in BBC land would her appearance appear normal.

As regards integration, this too says a lot about Muslims in Britain.

"The three women, who cannot speak English, were married to her three sons, who were also their first cousins."


And this...

"Nas, a local community worker, said: "As a first generation Asian we have experienced these things first hand and I don't think it's enslavement."


More still..

"But he condemned Bibi's abusive actions, saying: "It's acceptable to treat women like this in other countries but not in our country, in England no, it's not acceptable."


Ah, but why is that so? Is he saying Islam permits it?

Then there's the denial.

""I am surprised that it has taken so long to come to light - it could have been fear or their [the victims'] lack of awareness. "


Or could it be, as the headline suggests, the Muslim community supported the abuse?
