Clegg interview

24th Apr 2015

Sir, What I don’t understand about Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg’s, interview is that on the one his party, Liberal Democrats, voted with the Government on the Prevent legislation and now saying he pledged to review it if his party gets into the Government.
One thing good Business Secretary, Vince Cable, did was to criticise the Prevent policy on universities, ie, banning of “extremist” speakers. It forced the Home Secretary, Theresa May, to back down. But if they do win the next elections, help us God as May wants to close down mosques if they invite “extremist” speakers.

Sir, I am surprised that Nick Clegg did not know that the new anti terror law targets nurseries too. It shows he is not briefed properly. It may also mean that the law is so silly that he could not believe his party voted for it. What the new legislation is doing is asking almost all sections of the society to spy on Muslims. What is going to happen is that large number of innocent Muslims will be demonised as extremists and their names tarnished forever.
There has been silence from the human rights groups in the UK on this new Prevent legislation. But I am not surprised. No one cares about Muslims’ civil and human rights.
Yours,
