Moderate Muslim Leader Succumbs to Death Threats

Shiria Khatun: a victim of the encroaching Caliphate

The Caliphate won’t be run by moderate, sensible muslims like her, it’ll be run by the radical Islamists who by threats and intimidation forced this woman into a burqa.

A SECULAR Muslim woman councillor has been forced to dress more conservatively after receiving death threats and sexually harassing phone calls from members of her own community.

Shiria Khatun, 38, has called in the police over the sinister calls in which threats were made not only against her, but also her four young children.  In one they warned they would dig up parents’ graves and bury her there instead.

The Labour councillor in the controversial borough of Tower Hamlets—named in a Channel 4 Dispatches documentary last week as a centre of Islamic fundamentalism—is considered one of the area’s most progressive politicians.

She was elected in 2006, worked for Ken Livingstone as a transport adviser at London’s City Hall and frequently campaigns for more Muslim women to enter politics.  However, over the past year she has been the victim of a “sick” harassment campaign.  She has been bombarded with anonymous calls and even followed home.

The rest, here.

How much do you want to bet this poor muslim woman is voting Rightwing next election?  She would be a fool not to.
