Britain Funding Separateness, Not Integration

Small Heath School and its head teacher, Shanaz Khan.

Increasingly, segregated religious communities receive state funds in order to remain separate. That extremists would gain a foothold seems inevitable.

“We believe that single faith schools will mean more discrimination and a greater stranglehold of the most conservative, anti-women and communal individuals over our children’s education and our communities as a whole.” — Spokesperson for South Asian Women in London, 2002.

“Instead of greater integration, this political creed [multiculturalism] has promoted separatism by emphasising differences and encouraging minority ethnic groups to cling to the customs of their homeland. In Birmingham, this has resulted in the rejection of western values by the governing bodies of too many Muslim-dominated schools.” — Manzoor Moghal, British Muslim writer and activist.

Britain’s multicultural doctrine was introduced with good intentions. Its failures, however, have outweighed its benefits…

    “Britain’s multicultural doctrine was introduced with good intentions. Its failures, however, have outweighed its benefits.”

    No, it wasn’t introduced with good intentions, and it’s performing exactly as designed.

    I wouldn’t want to integrate with pakis. Best scenario, is that pakis live in Pakistan. If that is an option that is not on the table, next best option is that they live in their own ghettos away from civilized people. I don’t hate pakis, but I don’t want to live with them when they have their own place to call home.

    The proper name for this ‘separateness’ is ‘multiculturalism’…..the very foundation of post 1982 Canadian society. LOL.

    Let’s be clear though. This is not a broadly drawn embrace of ‘everything-ness’. There aren’t going to be Jewish schools or Tibetan schools or Xhosa schools. There aren’t going to be new Buddhist Sri Lanka academies or Hindu based community learning centers. There are going to be fanatical Islamic madrassas. And that’s it.
