15 arrested in multicultural Britain after Muslim and Hindu sectarian riots

15 people have reportedly been arrested following sectarian riots between Muslims and Hindus in the British city of Leicester.

British law enforcement arrested 15 people in Leicester on Sunday amid ongoing sectarian violence between groups of Muslims and Hindus.

Apparently sparked by a cricket match between India and Pakistan, the English town saw gangs of Muslim and Hindu men rioting in the streets, leading to the vandalism of at least one site Hindu clerics and granting law enforcement special powers from the Home Office to reduce violence.

According to a press release from the city’s police force, law enforcement officials made more than a dozen arrests on Sunday in an attempt to put an end to what was described euphemistically as “a new mess”.

While the police statement refrains from going into detail on the exact nature of said “disorder”, according to a report by The Telegraphit was about several gangs of men – many of whom were masked – gathering in the city.

“The powers of scatter, stop and search were used to restore calm,” the police press release read.

“The impact of this disorder on our local communities is not acceptable,” he continued. “We will not tolerate violence, disorder or intimidation in Leicester and we continue to call for calm and dialogue.”

Meanwhile, the High Commission of India in London issued a brief statement condemning “the violence perpetrated against the Indian community in Leicester” as well as the “vandalism of premises and symbols of the Hindu religion”.

While stories of violent mobs of Hindus and Muslims have sadly become commonplace across the Indian subcontinent in recent years, the clashes in Leicester represent an escalation of recent sectarian violence further afield.

Speaking on the violence on Tuesday, the mayor of Leicester – one of Britain’s most multicultural – claims that issues from abroad had been imported into the city, with the official saying that even many of those arrested in connection with the violence were not from the city at all.

Videos have now circulated online claiming to show various clashes between Muslims and Hindus in the area, as well as gangs of Hindu and Muslim men shouting religious and sectarian slogans.

Breitbart London has not been able to absolutely establish the veracity of these videos and they are linked here for your information only.

A video job by Hindustan Times and freelance journalist Sunny Hundal shows supposedly Mohammed Hijab – a hugely prominent British Muslim influencer with almost 600,000 subscribers on Youtube alone – speaking to a gang of masked men to challenge the “Hindutva Thugs fascists” in the street if they “act like gangsters”. and “come back like this”.

The men, at least one of whom wore a full balaclava, began chanting “Allahu Ackbar” apparently in response to the prominent influencer’s speech.

Another one video posted by a journalist The Guardian seems to show a man of Indian origin worrying about the Muslim demographics in India, with an individual also would have citing Rotherham’s child raping gangs as evidence that Muslims are a problem in the UK.

Despite the massive tensions, Britain’s establishment media has been somewhat reluctant to cover the riots in detail, with neither the BBC nor Sky News noting in their reporting on Saturday that the violent clashes pitted Muslim and Hindu men against each other. .

Such veiled reporting has resulted in allegations that UK news agencies deliberately write their reports in such a way as not to inform the general public.

“There are certain instances where news articles have been deliberately written not to inform you of things,” writer Ben Sixsmith saidcriticizing in particular the report of the BBC estimating that it was “paid by the taxes of the people”.

Meanwhile, former Brexit Party MEP Martin Daubney describe what was happening in Leicester as ‘religious anarchy’, arguing that it was important to call out ‘extremism and intolerance wherever it occurs and NOT give ANY group a free pass ( sic)”.
