View Full Version : Grooming Gangs: 84 Per Cent Convicted ‘Asian’, White Girls Seen As ‘Fair Game’

A report by counter-extremism think tank Quilliam has found that more than eight out of ten men convicted of grooming gang offences have an ‘Asian’ background.

When the study’s authors — both of whom are of Pakistani heritage — set out on their research into grooming gangs, they expected to “debunk” the perception that Muslims of Asian heritage are overrepresented.

But instead their analysis revealed that 222 of 264 convictions related to 58 cases of grooming gangs identified in Britain between 2005 and 2017 — or 84 per cent — involved perpetrators of Asian origin, despite Asians making up just 7 per cent of the population.

The report found just 18 of the 264 offenders (7 per cent) were white, while 22 were black (8 per cent), and the ethnicities of a further two men were unknown.

What the report means by ‘Asian’ will not be clear until the report is officially published over the coming days, but Quilliam founder, LBC presenter and former Islamic extremist Maajid Nawaz gave some indication when he tweeted that “84% of collective child-grooming and rape cases in the UK involve gangs of British South-Asian Muslim men” in connection with it.

"Asian" is British usage, not euphemism. Many British Muslims are from Pakistan and India, a former British colony. Even by American usage neither are Middle Eastern. I wonder whether the syudy looked at the social and religious (if any) cultures of the blacks and whites. In a rational world the 84% of an identifiable demographic group should get 80%-90% of law enforcement effort. In the real world, British or American, that would have accusations of "Islamophobia!" and "Racism!" flying swiftly and thickly.

"Grooming gangs" is an interesting term. Is that some polite British way of saying "rape gangs"?
