Remember that while they do this, police in Lancashire paid a menacing visit to a man they suspected of “Islamophobia.” The Hackney Council police are obviously eager to find evidence they can use in order to portray Muslims as innocent victims of persecution and harassment, so as to justify more actual harassment and persecution of foes of jihad terror and Islamization. The UK police have become the mutawwa, religious police enforcing Sharia blasphemy laws.
“London’s Hackney Council Sends ‘Enforcement Officers’ to Mosques to Ask for ‘Hate Crime’ Reports,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, April 4, 2018:
Labour-controlled Hackney Borough Council is sending uniformed ‘Enforcement Officers’ to mosques to encourage them to report “hate crimes”.
“Our enforcement officers are visiting mosques today to speak to residents about hate crime concerns,” the London municipal authority announced on its Twitter feed.
“If you face anti-Muslim hate, report it to @TellMamaUK and always dial 999 in an emergency,” it added, concluding on a ‘#WeStandTogether’ hashtag.
Tell MAMA is a controversial organisation which has received significant government funding — three payments all topping £45,000 in 2015 — and has previously denied any connection between Muslim communities and grooming gangs, and claimed “events such as the EU referendum and popular debates around immigration and terrorism play into mainstream xenophobic, racist and anti-Muslim sentiment”.
It briefly lost state funding in 2013 after it was found to have “exaggerated” a “sustained wave of attacks” against Muslims in Britain after radical Islamic terrorists murdered off-duty soldier Lee Rigby in the street.
Fifty-seven per cent of the anti-Muslim “attacks” the group reported turned out to have taken place online — mostly negative remarks on Facebook and Twitter — while another 16 per cent were unverified.
Hackney Borough Council is currently advertising for more ‘Enforcement Officers’, offering between £31,953 and £33,627 for a 36-hour work week in “London’s most diverse and dynamic borough”….
