I can’t understand the video or what Tommy Robinson was telling the young Asian Man.
But this propensity for violence and rage is a feature, not a bug, of the Ummah.
For instance when we have friends over; I am always a little tense when male friends of Pakistan/Muslim descent are speaking to Vidhi. I can notice they are simply not used to be intellectually challenged by opinionated women.
I’m extremely comfortable and very relaxed when it’s a Hindu. But I can’t ask V to modulate or moderate her tone simply because it makes other people uncomfortable.
Regardless of what Tommy Robinson was telling the Asian chap in the video; there’s no excuse to throw a drink on him. It just shows that it’s a culture that simply isn’t used to dissenting opinions.
As an aside I’ve be accused of generalising, which is what I am doing. This is not an academic blog but simply a forum for opinions mixed with a bit of fact. I’m relaying my own life experiences and speaking truth to power.
Islam has many problems and what I dislike is what its liberal advocates don’t want to address the issues clearly. I’m not an outsider to Islam; I’m hyper-familiar with it and I was a long-term ally (I assumed it could be fixed). However what has disillusioned me is that I don’t even think that “liberal Muslims” think that Islam needs to be fixed.
Most of the same liberal Muslims watching the above clip, rather than feel shame over the young boy’s actions, will instead roundly condemn Tommy Robinson. Instead the onus should be on why there is a Muslim underclass and as to why it feels the need to act on rage.
The paradigm in the Hindu community is entirely different where its blistering economic success means that it can now engage and challenge mainstream society.
