Maajid Nawaz Lays Down The Uncomfortable Truth About UK Grooming Gangs

Summary: 

This wasn’t the first incident in the UK - since 2011 groups of men have been convicted for organised sex grooming cases in 16 towns and cities. And, in all but two of those cases, most were Muslim men of south Asian origin. “They were men like me from my community,” Maajid said during his scathing take. “And in all but three the victims were white teenage girls. That is the truth, and what I’m saying is so uncomfortable that we’ve been ignoring it for years. “As a result of ignoring it this problem has been growing and growing to a point where it now has led to racial tensions.”
