Britain risks creating a system of “voluntary apartheid”


Are we creating divided society in Europe?

The row over Muslim women wearing veils shows how Britain risks creating a system of “voluntary apartheid”, shadow home secretary David Davis has warned.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Mr Davis questioned whether there was a “series of closed societies” in the UK.

And he said there was a growing feeling the Muslim community was “excessively sensitive to criticism” and “unwilling to engage in substantive debate”.

Last week Commons leader Jack Straw said the veils caused “separateness”.

  1. Totally correct. Currently, they are very sensitive to any sort of criticism. There was a time long back (6 centuries back) when Christianity and other religions were very closed and harsh, and Islamic lands were the lands of openess and progress, but the situation has reversed completely from that point.
