Politics: rise of the phobes

Unless I am very much mistaken, Islam is a religion – although some will say, not without merit, that it is also a political movement. On neither count is it immune from criticism and, in a free society that is supposedly embraced by the United Kingdom, the issues raised by the increasing encroachment of this religion on public life should be fair game for public debate.

Events of the last few days, though, have shown that there are severe limitations being placed on what should be traditional freedoms. This is occasioned by a two-step process which starts with the use of a single, portmanteau word “Islamophobia” to brand any critical thought directed at either the words or actions of Muslims.

The second essential step is then to attach to the act of “Islamophobia”, however judged, social, political and even (or especially) criminal sanctions, which effectively makes public debate on the words or deeds of the followers of Islam – and their fellow travellers – untenable. By this means, criticism in the public and political domain has become almost entirely suppressed.

Most recently, a very high-profile casualty of this process has been former conservative Party deputy leader, Lee Anderson who. responded to Suella Braverman’s claim that “Islamists are in charge of Britain now”, asserting that the UK is “sleep-walking into ghettoised society’ that threatens free expression”.

In a six-minute interview on GB News, directed mainly at the failure of policing in the capital, he disputed Braverman’s claim that Islamists were in charge of Britain, instead stating: “what I do believe is they’ve got control of Khan and they’ve got control of London”, later arguing that the Muslim mayor had “given our capital city away to his mates”.
