The UK Home Secretary, Theresa May has urged British Muslims to help deal with extremism, saying the country must not tolerate citizens who fail to respect its values.
May also noted that British freedoms come with “responsibilities.”
Her comments came with the unveiling of a broad approach to tackling extremism in the UK. May said while extremism exists in racism, anti-Semitism and homophobia, “Islamic extremism” is the greatest threat to the country, RT reported.
“We are free to practice any faith, follow any religious denomination, or ignore religion altogether,” she told an audience in central London.
“We are free to wear whatever clothes we choose. We are free to establish our own faith schools and give our sons and daughters the best education possible. We are free to build our own churches, temples and mosques and worship freely,” she said.
Now, the head of research of the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) in London, Arzu Merali believes such comments only demonize Muslims in the country and of course, as usual, she implied the old used-out rhetoric such as “Islamophobia”, “hate” and other lunacy while Muslim gangs were recently caught raping thousands of minor British girls and the authorities were systematically covering it up.
This is while the UK home secretary warned of growing levels of Islamic extremism spreading throughout the country, citing examples of the Trojan Horse plot to take over Birmingham schools and Islamic extremist ideas being promulgated in schools.
May has been responsible for introducing a plethora of new counter-terror measures, including seizing suspects’ passports.
