The former BNP chairman Nick Griffin should in general feel thoroughly ashamed of himself. His career in politics was built on low-brow generalisation and blind hate rooted in abused science.

It is all the more surprising therefore to note that Griffin once made a very important point that reverberates up to the present day.

In a BBC Newsnight interview many years ago, Griffin chose to take issue with Muslim criminality in the North of England. The Muslims were, he claimed, chiefly responsible for the tensions which had then exploded into the Burnley Riots. When prompting Griffin to clarify his accusations, the interviewer (Jeremy Paxman) consistently reverted to the word ‘Asian’ instead of the religious signifier suggested by his subject.

Growing quickly tired of this, Griffin barked out what must be the only helpful and prophetic sentence in his long and fruitless career:

“Stop saying Asian. This isn’t an Asian thing, it’s a Muslim thing”.

This was in 2001 – long before grooming gangs began to be reported in the mainstream (and even fringe) press.

Griffin deserves credit for this clarification, if for nothing else.

Of course, given its congenital fear of accuracy, the BBC continues to use the word ‘Asian’ to describe the Pakistani Muslim gangs involved with Rotherham; a trickle of protest from Hindu and Sikh communities going largely unheard.

This is nothing short of scandalous. The Hindu and Sikh communities are natural allies in the struggle against Islam. They have departed lands long haunted by the same demonic ideas, and bring with them lessons of glittering value.

There are no Hindu, Sikh or Jain rape gangs currently operating on British streets. As a matter of fact, in some Northern towns Sikh girls in particular have fallen victim to the same grooming techniques as White girls.

Let the fruit of Rotherham be a coalition bound by links of iron. The isolation of Muslims in our society is the first step towards their excision.
