Rotherham official punished by co-workers for wanting to stop Muslim child rape


More and more evidence is coming out that anyone who reported child rape, even the victims, was treated as a pariah and denounced as a racist.

From UK Telegraph…

A researcher who raised the alarm over the sexual abuse of teenage girls in Rotherham more than a decade ago was sent on a ‘ethnicity and diversity course’ by child protection bosses who refused to act on her evidence.

The researcher, who was seconded to Rotherham council by the Home Office, was told she must “never, ever” again refer to the fact that the abusers were predominantly Asian men.

Speaking to the BBC’s Panorama programme under the condition of anonymity, the researcher said that she identified more 270 victims of trafficking and underage prostitution by mainly Muslim gangs in Rotherham.

But, despite being sent to Rotherham Council, the report – based on interviews with underage girls seeking help from the council’s anti-child prositution project, called Risky Business – was never published.

Indeed, the council tried unsuccessfully to sack the researcher after she resisted pressure to change her findings.

Data to back up the report’s findings also went missing from the Risky Business office the weekend after she submitted her report, the researcher told the programme.

Recalling the reaction of one official after she had submitted the report, the researcher said: “She said you must never refer to that again. You must never refer to Asian men.

“And her other response was to book me on a two-day ethnicity and diversity course to raise my awareness of ethnic issues.”

One of the girls who was allegedly abused, whose name was changed to Isabel to protect her identity, said that her abuser told her he would “play the race card” if the police tried to take action.
