Some Pakistani men consider white women 'fair game': Warsi

Published: May 18, 2012

Some Pakistani men consider white women as “fair game,” said Conservative party co-chairman Baroness Sayeeda Warsi.

According to a report by The Guardian, Warsi urged Muslim leaders to take steps against men who regard white women as “third-class citizens.”

Earlier last week, nine Muslim men, mainly of Pakistani origin, were found guilty of abusing young girls for sexual gains.

The men were convicted at Liverpool Crown Court for a range of offences including trafficking within the UK, rape, sexual assault and conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child. They were part of a gang who had groomed vulnerable young girls in and around Rochdale, Greater Manchester. They were given prison sentences ranging from 4 to 19 years.

Police played down any racial connection, however, Warsi believes otherwise.

The report quoted her saying: “There is a small minority of Pakistani men who believe that white girls are fair game. And we have to be prepared to say that. You can only start solving a problem if you acknowledge it first.”

“This small minority who see women as second-class citizens, and white women probably as third-class citizens, are to be spoken out against,” she added.

Calling for action against such mindset on community level, Warsi said that “in mosque after mosque, this should be raised as an issue so that anybody remotely involved should start to feel that the community is turning on them.”

“Communities have a responsibility to stand up and say: ‘This is wrong, this will not be tolerated’.”

    I agree with Baroness Warsi except the part the part that it is “Small minority” of Pakistani men!

    I have lived in England for 10 years and interacted with large no. of Pakistani men and women. For ALL Pakistani men, Pakistani Girls are out of bounds for any men but Paksitani (or Arabic muslim), while ANY White (Or Hindu or Sikh) girl is “Fair game”!

    Could you imagine the outcry in Pakistan IF Pakistani girls were targetd by White men like in this case? 40-50 year old men raping (because “grooming” is too wrong word – this can’t be grooming) 13-16 year old girls?

    I challange even if ONE Pakistani will come out openly and criticise it unconditionally – and doubt if ET will publish this.

    I have had a lot of exposure to the UK and mostly the pakistani community there are either illiterate laborers who came to work in factories in the 1950s and even their younger generation has little education or Asylum seekers (who were actually criminals in Pakistan or Afghanistan). So with such quality of people from the Pakistani community, you can expect all types of criminal activity. I reject the view that they target white girls only and respect asian or african girls. They are criminals who will not spare any girl, whatever race. A few years ago there were riots in Birmingham between asians and africans after asian men had raped an african girl. Asian girls are also frequently raped and murdered by asian men in UK(indians, pakistanis and bangladeshis are all involved!) Its just that it does not make the headlines like in this case. I would urge the UK politicians to understand the facts that criminals target every race. This is not a race issue its a crime issue. At least the politicias should be sensible enough not to make this a race issue and keep it a crime issue.
    Also note that the pakistani immigrants in Australia and Canada are more educated and skilled and hence you will not see such instances from pakistanis in Australia or Canada. Even the educated and skilled Pakistanis in the UK that work in white collar jobs (a little percentage) are law abiding people. Recommend

However Aryabhat and Jayesh should look in their own back yards and see if they can spot the treatment of dalits or women – third class or sub-human treatment is debatable. Perhaps Aryabhat also needs to check on the number of rapes being committed in New Delhi alone before pointing fingers at other animals. I remember a report on BBC where a Swiss diplomat was raped in a parking lot – with statistics showing a rape in India every 1/2 hour, Mr. Aryabhat should not take pleasure in a criminal act just because it was committed by people of Pakistani origin.

    I agree that this is the mindset of many Pakistani male. It originates from the same mentality that keeps our women inside and covered and the rest is fair game. I know Pakistanis working in foreign companies in Pakistan and stealing stationary among others and preaching me Islam. When I told them about their theft they said “it belongs to Jews and Christians”. Hurting other kids is fine as long as ours are safe. It is about time that the world treats these men like they should be. To me they should have been put away for life. In today’s papers there is news about Pakistanis in Canada and their immigration rate is declining while poverty is increasing.

    as someone has already pointed out, the cover given to them is by constitutional provisions, and are followed to the letter. and about the rape cases, well in india when they are reported the women are not required to produce four ‘men’ who had witnessed the proceedings. a medical test is done for them.
    that said, it’s not about the behaviour at home, but abroad. and in those terms indians are lot better than pakistanis.
    i retierate it once agaiin, that education has no bearing on how a man will behave with a 12 year old girl. because our and your villages have lots of illiterate men who take great care of the girls and would protect their modesty at the cost of their lives.

    White colour girls or women are most wanted girls and women when proposals for marriages are exchanged through parents or directly.

    Most of the Pakistan men go abroad particularly to Western Countries for study or employment purpose and during their stay over there, they marry a white colour girl or women.

    In my opinion and having heard so many stories about Pakistani men marriages, white colour girls or women are not third class citizens but they are the first class citizens and most wanted girls and women as far as marriages are concerned.

    As I my self spent quite some time in the Greater Manchester Area over the past 20 years and also lived in Canada for couple of years, I interacted with all sorts of people from Pakistani and Indian communities, I can confirm your observation. However, I would add that white girls are relatively soft targets for the criminal minded people due to their liberal social and moral conditioning compared to other communities. The issue is not just confined to Pakistanis, Indians, and Bengalis, but more severely with the black population. The difference, however, is that Pakistani media and people make it, out of proportions, an issue of national level, while the others keep it in the proper context.

The girls of Karachi of Urdu Speaking Community and Punjabi Girls of bigger cities of Punjab especially Lahore are considered Easy Meat and are sexually exploited as well. My two friends from North West until recently had affair with two girls from Lahore and even they had coitus and then afterwards they told me that Lahori girls are character less and they marry their cousins from North West and dump these girls. My one friend even have a relationship with 10 girls in Karachi all of Urdu Speaking community.
    So it is my request especially to Punjabi and Urdu Speaking Communities that Apart from Britian your girls are the considered Fair game in Pakistan. Even in some community the word Chewing Gum is used for such girls that use them, abuse them and then dump them.

    I believe that such things happen because there is mixing between the sexes in Muslim societies. By this I do not mean free sex. In Muslim societies by and large women are fully covered and therefore when Muslim men go berserk when they see a woman normally dressed i.e without a burqa or hijab. The thinking being that women who are not covered are of lose morals. 2-3 years ago an Imam in Sydney, Australia comapared uncovered women as meat to which cats and dogs get attracted implying that the fault lies with women and not men who prey on them. This is from a religious leader. What chance have we got to expect men to behave morally. As mentioned in some comments these men are not educated and thus not told what civil behavior is. We need to get rid of Imams who make statements as I have referred and educate our men and women to mix freely as friends. Free Muslims women by getting rid of the burqa and hijab. Muslims religion only asks both men and women to dress and behave modestly. I believe this will reduce the incidence of such immoral behavior by the arrested men.

    Sexual assault on anybody is a heinous crime, let alone children. However, singling out Pakistani men is unfair. In Warsi’s own words “a small minotiry of Pakistanis” should not qualify her blaming their origin and not them. There have been instrances of sexual crimes against children in USA and UK, and even if the perpetrators were immigrants, never did any leader of those communities came forward and identified the crime related to a particular community. Criminals are just criminals, they should not be identified with their origin. The Barrones has the right to do some political scoring, but not at the cost of Pakistanis.

    That is not to say that exploitation of women doesn’t happen elsewhere but in these parts of the sub-continent women are chattel. That’s it. They are sub-human.
    I have lived in these parts of India and speak from personal experience. Delhi is one of the worst cities for women.

    These men were not Pakistani men. They were Britishers of Pakistani descent. The British society has to determine how it will fix its problem of lack of integration of its minority populations. Pakistan has enough problems of its own – we can’t be held responsible for the muck that is the British society.

    This mind-set is not only confined with Pakistani Muslims but most Muslims all over the world. Behavior towards females in our own country is known to all. I hope these culprits will be deported by to Pakistan. They don’t deserve all those facilities which they can not dream in their own country.

    There is another side… I am a Pakistani and I am often harrassed by women, including teenagers. Many of them are Indians/English

    I don’t want to have sex with them due to some reasons but just imagine those who want to have?

    How can we always blame men?

    @American Desi: All youa re talking rubish. Keep out Islam in your comments. These dirty things ahs nothing to do with Islam. There are more than 1.5 Billion Muslims in all over the world. In America every 5 second one girl or woman is raped. American women organisations says this. which is one of the highest rate in the world. Those people who rape are not muslims.

    Sexual predators from the sub continent mainly India were caught red handed on camera by Chris Hansen of Dateline NBC. Perversion is not exclusive to any race or nation.
