Muslim Ghettoisation

  by: : Iftikhar Ahmad

We live in a shrunken world and millions of people are on the move; one
our biggest challenges is how we learn to live in proximity to
difference -
different skin colours, different beliefs and different way of life.
According to a study by COMPAS, Muslims born and educated were given
impression of outsiders. The perception among Muslims is that they are
unwelcome in Britain is undermining efforts to help them integrate into
wider society. Most of them say that they have experienced race
discrimination and religious prejudice. Muslims and Islam is promoted a
fundamentalist and separatist by the western elite, which have negative
impact on community and social cohesion. The number of racist incidents
occurring in London Borough of Redbridge's schools have reached their
highest levels since record begin.

A City or a locality, where Muslims are in majority is a ghetto. There
is a
tendency for people of similar backgrounds to live together in
neighourhoods. The term"ghettoisation" is inappropriate. The original
ghettos in Europe during the middle ages were set up by law to confine
Jewish population to one area of a city. According to a research by an
Australian academic that Muslim communities in Britain are being
increasingly ghettoized in a trend that set back hopes of assimilation
years. Britain has now eight cities in the top 100 most ghettoized
The people from the Pakistani community in Bradford and Oldham and
had trebled during the decade. A report by an academic Dr Alan Carling,
Bradford risks becoming a front line in the global clash between the
and Islam. But Islam and Muslims do not clash with the concepts of
pluralism, secularism and globalisation. The native flight from
inner-city wards showed clear evidence of an increase in segregation in
city since 1991. Native parents are avoiding sending their children in
schools where Muslims and other minorities are in majority. The
of Pakistani Muslims in the city has meant that Bradford has become

Immigrants are the creators of Britain new wealth, otherwise, inner
deprived areas could not get new lease of life. The native Brits regard
areas as ghettoes. Integration is not religious and cultural, it is
and Muslims are well integrated into British society and at the same
they are proud of their Islamic, linguistic and cultural identities,
of discrimination they have been facing in all walks of life. According
UN, 80% of British Muslims feel discriminated. They are less burden on
social services. Immigrants made up 8.7% of the population, but
for10.2% of all collected income tax

It is often quoted by the Western media that Muslim schools ghettoizse
children, and even lead to their radicalisation if they are not
There is no evidence that faith schools lead to a "ghettoized education
system. In British schools, pupils are encouraged to focus too much on
similarities rather than their differences. The integrationist approach
merely results in Muslims feeling that their faith, language and
culture is
not respected.
