Another sunrise, another sundown, another cruelty imposed by Pakistan on its own people.
The most recent outrage from the Indus Valley, as you may have already read, involves a Christian daring to send a text message supposedly defaming the Prophet Mohammad.
Given that Pakistan is an enlightened and valuable addition to the family of nations, a sentence of death was swiftly announced by the judge, and a violent silence, an approving apathy, has since rippled across the mud-cities of the nuclear republic.
Despite this (the sentencing of kafir to an early grave) being a common situation in the Muslim World, it is especially common (perhaps even traditional) in Pakistan, where the sizable Christian and Shia communities are handled as tenth-class citizens, unendingly vulnerable to compatriot mood-swings and scared away from the type of political activity necessary to defend themselves.
As of 2014, there are an estimated 2,800,000 Christians slogging out a prison existence in that country, though that number is naturally diminishing, by both emigration and explosion, all the time.
And Christians, of course, are not the only Pakistanis exporting themselves from the motherland. The majority who leave Pakistan do so as cultural pioneers and arrive balancing on their shoulders the enrichments of corruption and aggressive sexual dysfunction.
Historically, Britain has been by far the most blessed by this outflow, trading its old industrial city of Bradford, and towns like Oldham and Sparkbrook by way of deposit for the decades of pleasure to follow.
Since then, we’ve been treated to an expanded variety of culinary spices… and this sentence can’t be padded any more than that I’m afraid.
Let me speak more frankly than I perhaps should; of all the colonial peoples who chased Britain’s receding borders at the close of empire, Pakistanis have proven easily the most wretched, inassimilable and damaging to the fabric of its society.
Almost any other British minority has something positive to be said for it. The Hindu and Sikh Indians who fled Idi Amin’s misrule in Uganda have since made Leicester Royal Infirmary one of the country’s finest medical centres. West-Indians and Afro-Caribbeans have restlessly integrated into the cultural bloodstream via sport, music and entertainment. Jews have ensured Britain maintains a cutting edge in science, medicine and literature. The Copts, Armenians and Maronites, whilst arriving in small numbers, have strayed little from their reputation as industrious, law-abiding tax-payers. Poles are guilty of nothing more than hard work. Even the Persians and Arabs have brought with them more wealth than grief.
Pakistanis have brought nothing. Nothing at all, save for a legacy of ruined children, grubby deceit, inbred monsters and limbless commuters.
And it’s not only wingnuts like myself who see fit to point these things out. Last year, the Conservative MP and Attorney General Dominic Grieve QC attracted a firestorm of criticism when he drew attention to the cumulative effect of Pakistanis on corruption in British society.
After making clear to which community he was referring, the barrister remarked that some immigrants “come from societies where they have been brought up to believe you can only get certain things through a favour culture. One of the things you have to make absolutely clear is that that is not the case and it’s not acceptable”.
Despite the stupid tears shed over this statement, Grieve is entirely correct. It won’t have escaped anyone’s notice that Pakistanis are hugely over-represented in the arts of political, social and moral sleaze. Just watch an episode of Crimewatch and keep a mental tally of the offenders with Pakistani names, or from Pakistani areas. You’ll be surprised.
This past week has seen the ascension to government of a British Pakistani named Sajid Javid, a former financial worker. Javid replaces the shamed Minister Maria Miller as culture secretary and many have spoken of this as a temporary foothold in a meteoric climb that could see him reach the apex of the Conservative Party.
A quick glance at the MP’s Wikipedia page informs me he is non-religious, and has offered (doubtlessly to confirm this) a friendly hand to Zionism.
That should I suppose, be enough. After all, culture – not racism – is the point of Counter-Jihad…
In fact, the Pakistani degradation of English society is not always interwoven with the issue of Islamisation at all. Corruption (to take Grieve’s example) is frankly more characteristic of Pakistan than of any other Muslim society. Muslim grooming gangs in Britain are almost always of Pakistani origin, and rarely include Turks, Bangladeshis, Persians or Arabs. Minority cases of fraud, hit and run, stalking, bullying and drug dealing also attract a greater portion from the same community. Put simply, a predictable moral laxity appears specific to Pakistani, as opposed to general minority, or even Muslim behaviour.
The ethnic slur ‘Paki’ – which more than any other term is synonymous with racial tension in the UK – is revealing in itself. In case you don’t know, ‘Paki’ – in English patois – is an insult thrown at pretty much anyone with heritage in Southern Asia; most commonly Indians, Bangladeshis and Pakistanis, but also occasionally Afghans, Sri Lankans and Persians too. Although the etymology of the term doesn’t require analysis, perhaps the question of why ‘Paki’ has endured, instead of ‘Indie’, or ‘Deshi’, does.
I used to work part-time in a bookshop and had an Indian co-worker whom we’ll call Sanjeev (I’m not being lazy here; this is phonetically close to his real name). On occasion, usually near the close of the working day when the shop was empty, we used to chat by the till about his impressions of England from a foreign standpoint. His view of the country was generally favourable, but his biggest complaint (above even the drizzle) was hearing the use of ‘Paki’ as a racial insult. This was not, he explained, merely because of its vitriolic point of departure, but because of the generalisation compounded by its inaccuracy. He completely understood why people disliked ‘Pakis’ but couldn’t understand why (of all the people in the world) one would accuse an Indian of being one.
Here’s a rough quote from memory: “Everything you (British people) like about Asians is Indian, and everything you hate about them is Pakistani. You just don’t know it. All of those grubby ‘Indian’ restaurants on the high street (he gestured outside) aren’t Indian at all. Pakistanis just steal our recipes.”
At the time, I found this quite funny. Nowadays, less so. It is plainly an injustice for Indians to absorb the negativity earned by Pakistani misbehaviour, and this goes on far more than we admit.
So let’s not be shy in calling a spade a spade here. Sajid David, and other British Pakistanis, have more to distance themselves from than religious politics. The effects of Pakistani immigration to England have been roundly negative and to refuse to say this clearly only damages the prospects of other (more valuable) Asian minorities.
