Muhammad Abdul Bari, the secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain, fears that continued negative attitudes towards people of his faith could provoke a vast and angry backlash.
“There are a few bad apples in the Muslim community who are doing terrible acts and we want to root them out,” Dr Bari told The Sunday Telegraph.
“But some police officers and sections of the media are demonising Muslims, treating them as if they’re all terrorists—and that encourages other people to do the same.
“If that demonisation continues, then Britain will have to deal with two million Muslim terrorists—700,000 of them in London,” he said. “If you attack a whole community, it becomes despondent and aggressive.”
With less right to be listened to by anyone outside his immediate vicinity than Alf Garnett sitting on a park bench with a bottle of sherry in a paper bag, this so-called community leader tells us that, basically, they’s all terrorists them Muslims, innit? Sounds like incitement to religious hatred to me.
