Chief Superintendent Dave Stringer, Scotland Yard’s head of community engagement said: “The Met has seen a steady increase in the reporting of all hate crime, particularly racist and religious hate crime. Despite this rise, hate crime is hugely underreported and no one should suffer in silence.”
How does Stringer know that “anti-Muslim hate crime” is “hugely underreported”? For him to know that, such crimes would have to be reported. What he is really doing here is encouraging Muslims to report more “Islamophobic hate crimes”: Scotland Yard wants more, so as to justify the massive resources it is devoting to tracking these crimes.
However, given the astonishing frequency of “anti-Muslim hate crimes” that turn out to have been faked by Muslims, Stringer is likely to get just that: more fakery. Becoming a victim in today’s absurd society brings praise, honor, and monetary rewards, and when such “hate crimes” are exposed as fake, no one cares, so there’s no downside to this fakery. One of the chief advocacy groups claiming that Muslims are being victimized on a large scale in Britain, Tell Mama UK, was exposed years ago as fudging its reports of a wave of “anti-Muslim hate crime” by adding in rude words on the Internet and the like, but it is still a respected organization in the UK, which is, of course, finished.
“Revealed: Anti-Muslim hate crimes in London soared by 40% in a year,” by Robin De Peyer, Evening Standard, February 26, 2018:
The number of Islamophobic hate crimes in London has soared by almost 40 per cent in the past year, figures have revealed.
There were 1,678 anti-Muslim hate crimes reported in the capital in the year up to January 2018 – up from 1,205 the year before.
And Scotland Yard warned that the figures, from the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime, do not show the full scale of “hugely under-reported” hate crimes in the capital.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan warned perpetrators they face arrest and prosecution under a “zero-tolerance” approach.
“London is a place where we celebrate, cherish and embrace diversity,” he said.
“I’m calling on all Londoners to pull together, and send a clear message around the world that our city will never be divided by individuals who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life.”…
Hate crimes include physical attacks, damage to property, bullying and abuse, according to police.
Chief Superintendent Dave Stringer, Scotland Yard’s head of community engagement said: “The Met has seen a steady increase in the reporting of all hate crime, particularly racist and religious hate crime.
“Despite this rise, hate crime is hugely underreported and no one should suffer in silence.”
He added: “London is such a diverse and tolerant city, but too many still feel marginalised, or worse intimidated to go about their daily lives due to their race, faith, sexual orientation, gender or disability.”
