Researchers who assumed Pakistani men are unfairly branded as grooming gang members, find they are wrong

In recent years, the United Kingdom has been infested with a menace of grooming gangs who target mostly underage girls with alcohol and drugs before sexually abusing them. Investigations have revealed hundreds of such grooming cases since 2011 which have happened in regions like Rochdale, Rotherham and Birmingham.

Considering such a rampant problem, an anti-extremism think tank named Quilliam has come out with a report that failure of British-Pakistani Muslim men to integrate into the British society has led to the creation of such gangs.

Interestingly, the researchers who had started to analyse a total of 264 convictions in these grooming cases had expected to find that the tag of Pakistani Muslim aggressors was merely a very unfair stereotype.

But much to their surprise, a total of 84% of those convicted were found to be of Asian origin. As per Muna Adil, one of the authors of this report, claimed that they began this report thinking that they would debunk this over representation of Asians but much were alarmed and dismayed by their findings.

The report also urges that politicians and the police should shrug off their political correctness to tackle this problem head on. As per the co-author of this report named Haras Rafiq, it is also very important to talk about this issue as the problem simply won’t go away.

In an Indian context, such cases of grooming gangs might be considered similar to the instances of love jihad which currently occupy a taboo status when it comes to the leftist-liberal narrative.

Like liberals have been reported to be turning a blind eye towards love jihad, Sarah Champion a Labour MP has claimed that people were more afraid about being branded a racist than they were of being proven wrong, when it came to such grooming cases. The MP also stated that the majority of the perpetrators were British Pakistani and questioned as to why no research was being commissioned to uncover more about this matter.
