Muslim communities are unlike others in Britain and the country should accept that they will not integrate in the same way, the former head of the equalities watchdog has said.
Trevor Phillips, the former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said it was disrespectful to assume that Muslim communities would change.
Mr Phillips, the former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, added: “Part of the integration process is for the rest of us to grasp that people aren’t going to change their views simply because we are constantly telling them that basically they should be like us.”
The Muslim Council of Britain said yesterday that demanding change from Muslims encouraged people to discriminate against them. “It assumes that Muslims are not equal, and not civilised enough to be part and parcel of British society, which they most certainly are,” the council said.
And Fiyaz Mughal, head of the Tell Mama charity which campaigns against Muslim hate crime, added: “It assumes that Muslims as a whole have views that are inherently different to other communities and that the ‘world view’ of Muslims is different to other communities
What isn’t reported is what, if anything, he said as to how we are supposed to live with 5% and rising of our population not integrated and completely different. Apartheit? Dhimmitude?
