Death Threats and the Bishop

Last month, Dr. Michael Nazir-Ali, the Anglican Bishop of Rochester (U.K.) made public comments lamenting the closed nature of Muslim immigrant communities in Britain. Most notably, he pointed out that such a climate of hostility toward non-Muslims existed in many British Muslim communities that they were practically "no-go zones" for non-Muslims. The bishop, himself a Pakistani immigrant was immediately attacked by the politically correct multiculturalists. And, naturally - since he dared to criticize Muslims - he was immediately besieged by death threats.

Dr Nazir-Ali was warned that he would not "live long" and would be "sorted out" if he continued to criticise Islam, following his claim that parts of Britain had become "no-go" areas for non-Muslims.

Muslim leaders are to meet Dr Nazir-Ali to challenge him over his claims

Police have launched inquiries into the phone calls that were made to his home and have put him and his family under police protection with the use of an emergency line.

Surveillance cameras around the building have been improved. The bishop's mail is being screened by the Post Office as an added precaution.

"The irony is that I had similar threats when I was a bishop in Pakistan, but I never thought I would have them here," the bishop said. Meanwhile, Muslim leaders are to meet him in an emergency summit to challenge him over his claims, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt.

The reason the threats have followed the bishop from Pakistan to Britain is that so many Pakistanis, mostly Muslim Pakistanis, have migrated to Britain, bringing their culture of violence and intimidation with them. The "emergency summit" will be used as another means of silencing the bishop and spinning some nice "multicultural tolerance" PR.

What is astonishing in all this is how little support Bishop Nazir-Ali has received from his fellow churchmen. The Anglican Church is not only unwilling to defend its own, but is apparently eager to see Britain converted into a Muslim state.
