Ranting muslim cleric,Shaykh Asrar Rashid, says "white people were the main cause of racism." Sounds like he's attended one of the Commission for Equality and Human Rights seminars - of course the opposite is true with most recent government policies being blatently anti-white.
Rashid: “If a foreign government invaded England tomorrow, we as Muslims would defend these areas and our way of life, “ he said.
Is he talking about the "foreign" British military invading the muslim no-go areas? Does anyone believe this piece of excrement and his ilk would ever defend British non-muslims? Of course not.
This hate spewing ReligionofPeacer 'extremist' goes on to insult and call the Queen "disgusting" and -ture to form - the vast majority of the supposedly "moderate" muslims are silent. No muslims marching in the streets protesting insulting of Her Majesty. How much longer are the people of Britain going to swallow the "extremist" canard?
What is really disgusting is - to name a very few:
But white British people needn't point out the above - or any of the preponderance of similar loathsome muslim 'enrichment' facts - or the media and hate-mongerering muslim clerics will call you 'racist'.
UPROAR AS MUSLIM CLERIC CALLS QUEEN ‘DISGUSTING’
Shaykh Asrar Rashid (pictured) criticised the Queen for knighting Salman Rushdie
Friday January 21,2011
A RADICAL cleric sparked fury yesterday by branding the Queen a “disgusting woman” and slamming British Muslims who join the Army.
Ranting Shaykh Asrar Rashid also suggested white people were the main cause of racism.
The controversial imam, who preaches in mosques in Birmingham, told radio listeners the Queen was a “disgusting woman because she knighted Salman Rushdie”.
In 1989 Iran’s leaders called for author Rushdie’s death for writing The Satanic Verses, deemed “blasphemous”. He became Sir Salman at a Buckingham Palace ceremony in 2008 for his services to literature.
Rashid, who was arrested over a religious dispute during a pilgrimage to Mecca last summer, went on to accuse Muslims who join the armed forces, or the police, of sacrificing their beliefs.
He said: “I don’t think Muslims should join any institution like the police force.”
Speaking on BBC West Midlands’ breakfast show, he added: “Institutions institutionalise us, we can never join without giving up our principles.
“I know people who have given up their religion to be in the police force and armed forces.” However, Rashid said he would fight for his Birmingham community.
“If a foreign government invaded England tomorrow, we as Muslims would defend these areas and our way of life, “ he said. “It’s not that I hate English people, or English soldiers who have gone abroad, or that I don’t feel for the mothers of these soldiers. But the fact is they should make conscientious decisions as well.”
He also spoke about growing up in Birmingham’s Sparkbrook area 20 years ago, saying: “When I was living in this area there was more racism because there was more white people.”
He said he had been teased by white youngsters but “since those people have moved out there is no racism”.
Khalid Mahmood, the Muslim Labour MP for Birmingham Perry Barr, said Rashid’s views were “complete nonsense”.
He said: “Mr Rashid is obviously completely out of order.
“Muslims should always play a part in the society they live in, and that includes establishments like the fire service, ambulance service, police force or any sector that helps the community at large, including the armed forces. I know a lot of people, including Muslims, who have joined the armed forces and they have never had to give up their religion or beliefs.
“For him to claim that some have to is complete nonsense.”
A spokesman for the Muslim Council of Britain said Rashid’s comments on the Queen were “disrespectful” and “disgusting”.
He added: “As Muslims we are ready to show respect to leaders.
“We may disagree with some of the things she might do and say but that does not give us the right to be insulting to her.
“Theologically speaking, there is nothing that prevents a Muslim joining the British Army. To date there are 350 serving Muslim officers, men and women, in the Army.”
Zeeshan Hashmi, whose brother Lance Corporal Jabron Hashmi was the first British Muslim soldier killed while fighting in Afghanistan, said: “I am privileged to be living in Britain.
“One of the key traits of living in this country and being a Brit is that we have free speech. Based on that, the imam can say all of these things living in a very free society.”
Tory MP and former Army officer Patrick Mercer said: “The idea that Muslims should not fight for their own country which bought them up and supported them is outrageous.”
“Many thousands of Muslims gave their lives alongside British forces trying to defeat the Nazis in the Second World War, and there is no difference.”
