London ‘more Islamic’ than Muslim world, says Muslim scholar

He says this is because Islam is all about love and justice and so is London, but let’s get real: when have we ever seen Islam being all about love and justice, anywhere in the world or anytime in history? Still, Rizvi is right: London is “more Islamic” than some Muslim countries. In London, the government actively encourages the practice of Islam, whereas in many Muslim countries the governments are repressive. Remember also that David Cameron is working to make London the “global capital of Islamic finance.” London is racing toward sharia.

Maulana Rizvi

“London ‘more Islamic’ than Muslim world – scholar,” by John Bingham, Telegraph, March 9, 2016:

London is a more “Islamic” city than much of the Muslim world put together, a leading Muslim scholar has argued.

Maulana Syed Ali Raza Rizvi, a prominent Shia cleric, who was born in Pakistan and studied in Iran, said he “feels more Islamic” in Britain than other countries because of the freedom to worship and the multicultural mix.

He said Islam could be summed up as being about “love and justice” but that the “Muslim political leadership” around the world was failing to foster this.

He was speaking alongside the Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the leader of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, and the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis at the annual Benedict XVI Lecture, an interfaith discussion event in London.

The three leaders discussed how members of their own faiths had, in different ways, lived as “creative minorities”.

Maulana Rizvi said that unlike their “Jewish and Christian brothers”, Muslims in Britain were a new community, established for decades rather than centuries, and had a “lot to learn” from other religious groups.

But he added: “I feel that London has more Islamic values than many of the Muslim countries put together.

“There are many different communities living together in peace and harmony, giving respect to the others and loving others and that is what Islam is all about – and unfortunately [much] of the Muslim political leadership has failed to provide that.

“I feel more Islamic living here because I can easily practise my faith and give respect to all other members of the community belonging to different faiths and not even belonging to a faith, to anything.

“Because that is what Islam is all about, respecting and giving to others … if in one line I could say what Islam is all about, it is all about love and justice.”

    I repeat myself, the UK is fucked now it’s just another muzz country in the world, which next?

    • The origional roger

      Hard to say who will reach the grand goal of oppression first, when looking at France, England, Sweden or Germany. I dare say that the OIC has already picked out new names for them.

    • Julian Farmer

      The British are too stupid today and scared of being called names. I am ashamed of them.They are no longer Churchill’s People but a simpering nation of self-guilt psychotics detemined to turn UK Moslem. The Government has just placed a number of buildings in Whitehall itself under Sharia Law.

      Rumour say they intend to do this with Parliament too. They sell the historic buildings to Arabs then place them under sharia and rent them back.. It is called the Lancaster Plan.

      • Save Europe

        No. As I always say the idiotic politicians in the UK are to blame and NOT the people. Please differentiate between the two. I am as irate with people like YOU who do NOT get it, as I am with Muslims.

    Well, when they’re right they’re right!

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Taqiyya…Kitman…Tawriya…Muruna…Taysir…Darura… Where to begin analyzing the fabrications of this guy. Britain has sold everything, its culture, values, political administration, laws, even its children, in Rotherham and other slave markets, to muslim interests for blood money. Resistance and change are necessary if britain is to be anything but a gateway to the west for muslim invasion.

    • The origional roger

      Yes, but I personally have more intense loathing for David Cameron, and his ilk across the channel.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        There are plenty of loathsome politicians for everyone to loath as many as they would like. You are right though, all things considered Cameron is more loathsome.

    • joe1429

        There are lots of Canadians who you have not mentioned you have selected village idiots for your examples.

        • Steve

          There are some good ones in there in my opinion. Did you look at the link Michael J. Fox, Margaret Atwood, Elizabeth Stern, Elijah McCoy, Glenn Ford, Sarah McLachlan, …. and many others. Those are more than village idiots. The point is that yours is the next culture to be under attack at highest risk with your recent prime minister sell out and it is in danger of being replaced with nothing but islamism. What a joyful day for allah that will be.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Other than margret atwood, you have found a few average people. islam will attack everyone every where, it will have to be beaten back, this will not be easy as islam appeals to inferior intellects and those inclined not to think, requiring someone to be submissive to. Liberals and democrats are prime candidates to convert to islam

          • Steve

            It has to be brought out to the people in practical terms that all their arts including movies, books, music etc will be radically changed if islamism takes root. I have to laugh at hollywood with all its patronizing of islam as if it will somehow be immune to the effects.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            If hollywood made movies to islamic standards, they would be even more vacuous then they are now.

        It isn’t? Notarized proof will have to be submitted.

    • Save Europe

      Oh dear god. The same old stuff. Tried hard with you, and yet you continue to insult an entire nation, rather than idiotic politicians. The British are this and that. The British are stupid. The British are cuckolds. Get over yourself and attack the retarded politicians rather than the entirety of populations. German men aren’t men. The Swedish are all idiots. You get what I’m saying so just stop insulting people and START insulting politicians because that is where it trickles down from. Or do you, perhaps get a kick from insulting entire nation’s people? It’s beginning to seem like that, in all honesty. Have a VERY long hard think, because I know you are far from stupid, but you are, sadly, starting to behave like that. I say that with NO satisfaction. You CARE, but there are constant insults towards countries in Europe. Please desist. Nonetheless continuing insulting Islam. No problem with that, here.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Results, not ruminating on a formerly great nation’s laurels, which are crushed flat from the present generation resting on them. All that is seen over here is more british submission to islam with politicians telling the sheep what to bleat and when to bleat it. If a nation does not want to be look at contemptuously by others, then act like it. britain is willing to be treated like dirt by muslims, but has its national pride offended by other western nations noticing british submission. As I have never said I was not particularly stupid, if that is how you see me, that is your opinion, which you are entitled to. If western europe does not like to have the obvious pointed out to it, then do something else. Who elected the politicians of the countries that are being insulted?

        • Save Europe

          You haven’t really responded to what I said. Firstly, ‘a formerly great nation’s laurels. ‘ The country – in my opinion is still mostly a great nation. The vile element of my country is found within the Muslim communities and crazily insane liberals. You do not actually realise the extent to which the vastest majority of us have been incredibly and increasingly irate, for quite a while. I never said you were stupid – please re read my initial message. However, I DO defend my right to be both perplexed and mildly insulted that, yes, you do insult. – on many occasions an entire nation’s population, as if, every single person thinks the same. I would never do that with your country, Canada, because all Canadians do not think the same. I think you’re better than that ultimately. As for your ‘act like it’ (supercilious) then I say this – why am in this page? Why am I always criticising Islam? Why do I spend the majority of my social hours explaining, trying to inform others, about what is going on in Europe? Because I DO ‘ACT LIKE IT.’

          • Mahou Shoujo

            For what it’s worth, I and many others appreciate what patriots in western europe are doing. No one is above criticism, even the mighty. What little insults that are tossed on the internet are nothing compared to the affronts to humanity and civilization that are happening in western europe right now. You have every right to be perplexed and insulted, as the rest of the world does when seeing the hopeless ignorance that the supposedly secular western europe reacts to islam with.

    In May London will probably elect its first Muslim Mayor — Sadfiq Khan. He is a “Muslim Rights” lawyer.
    Welcome to Londonistan.

    • The origional roger

      Muslim rights lawyer ? I didn’t know there could legally be such a thing.
      Its kind of like having a lawyer for the right to freely practice savagery without discrimination.

      • Steve

        Its good in a way because one of the things you can do when you sue one of them is to rightfully claim discrimination toward other races and cultures. It would be the same as a black rights lawyer or an asian rights lawyer.

        • The origional roger

          Yes, that’s what I would have thought.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Western europe is a write off. At least britain is an island, the decent survivors can be evacuated, the rabble remain.

      • Doctor Who?

        I am afraid that you are right. America should take in the many good decent Europeans who want to preserve Western civilization and leave Europe to the Muslims and the useful idiots, Cultural Marxists and Anti-Fascists who helped the Muslims conquer Europe.
        Only Russia and Eastern Europe can save Europe from its own folly.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Realistically, europe shows no inclination to save itself, it constantly rationalizes its colonization and islamification. All that’s practical is to secure the borders, then let tribal warfare settle territories.

      • joe1429

        Yes… Hopefully they will follow our intelligent next prez… Donald Trump, and change course

        • Steve

          Have to laugh with the carson endorsement of trump the degressives are besides themselves after all their media driven accusations about hitler and duke. It will be great to have both of them together complementing style and personality. I think race relations will improve unlike with our present traitors.

          • joe1429

            The organized left , effectively shut down a peaceful Trump rally in chicago tonite. Can you imagine if the organized right , did the same to a sanders rally, what would be all over the media, calling us terrorists, etc??

          • Steve

            Yes, Its still a victory though because trump has gotten so far tonight 5-6 hours of straight air-play on fox and its still going plus carson got in some commentary and the lib media is just going nuts trying to figure out how to handle all this attention to trump (on their debate night no less) and he’s handling it all so well. Its incredible how the left is going over the cliff since carson came on board. Its also obvious how these protestors look more and more like a bunch of organized thuggery-probably black lies mutter and ferguson, baltimore recruits, sent in by brother al and brother odumber.

          • joe1429

            I listened to what he said in an interview afterward, that yrs ago the police would come in , and take care of business, and this was not allowed to go on. He wants to reform the tort laws, so the cops could do their jobs effectively, without fear of lawsuits

          • Steve

            Maybe they can apply the tort laws to prevent overzealous and disrespectful journalists from making lawsuits. They often put people including cops and security at risk as well as themselves when they are aggresively seeking interviews.

      • Steve

        The celts survived being driven underground and maybe that’s where its going. It seems likely some derivative of segregation will come about and new survival strategies in the UK, Canada, and the U.S. One positive note for Canada and the U.S. is that there are a lot of remote areas.

        http://history-world.org/celts.htm

        • Mahou Shoujo

          There may be some underground activity in europe after islam tightens its grip. As islam destroys western european economies, there will be serious tribal warfare which will spiral europe into a new dark age. No real loss, it is an inbred colony of socialist inferiority as it is now.

    • Steve

      Sadiq – means friend in arabic. Khan -means king. I am sure he will be a kingly friend- to muslims. So fitting that he should be a lawyer. Everyone knows what they are all about being – islamists in sheep clothing disguised as trojan horses.

      • Doctor Who?

        About 25% of Pakistan is named Khan. Someone calculated that they are all descendants of Genghis Khan.
        Now they are in the process of conquering once great Britain.

        • Save Europe

          No, it’s because they have had 1,400 years of in-breeding by marrying their first cousins. Hence also why they have a lower IQ and are prone to loads of genetic disorders. Strangely, they don’t play banjos.

          • Doctor Who?

            The dirty little secret of Islam is that in many Islamic countries up to 70% of the marriages are incestuous — cousins marrying cousins and uncles marrying nieces.

    If the ruling elites and media in the west could simply be honest, the news would print the truth, all of the truth, warts and all about both sides of the Islam argument, and let people decide for themselves what is going on in the world.
    The reason that individuals don’t acknowledge or speak the truth, is because they fear that they will lose something, so its about loss of position, power, friendships, peerage.
    Little do they know that by avoiding the truth and trying to hide behind the façade of religious, cultural and moral relative equivalence, trying to hold hands, group hug and sing the leftist slogans, they are taking themselves and the free folk of the west into a dark and miserable bondage.

  • Save Europe

    I vomit as I read this. Islam can fornicate off. He IS deliberately playing things UP. Don’t get me wrong – there ARE shariah enforce areas within London, but the entirety of London is NOT Saudi Arabia. He is merely trying to both encite and encourage. Cheap attempt at socio-geo-politics.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Forget about england as a holiday destination, go to pakistan, the people are nicer, prices more reasonable and much nicer scenery and weather.

    • Save Europe

      Actually I recommend Luxembourg. Why? It’s a Muslim free zone – second richest country in the world, in ratio, to population size. Why do Muslims NOT go there? Luxembourg unemployment benefits are 25 euros a MONTH. 400 migrants refused to go there in January, precisely for that reason. What does this mean? All of Europe should get rid of the welfare state, and the Muslims will be ‘off.’

      • Mahou Shoujo

        That idea has been presented frequently, if it was not for free money and unlimited opportunity for the sexual conquest of non muslim girls, there would be no invasion. The money the e.u would save by not paying invader colonists would be better spent on the tax payers who earned it.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    As usual, it’s all about islam, not interested in what is said, can see what muslims do, it is ugly, violent, hateful, murderous, at best. islam: not recommended.
    “Because that is what Islam is all about, respecting and giving to others … if in one line I could say what Islam is all about, it is all about love and justice.”
    Here is a line from the qur’an, care to comment on it muslim boy? With reference to your statement as quoted above.
    5:33 “The only reward for those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom…”

  • reyol

    Britain is more Islamic because the Mohammedans live in dignity off of the Jizya / Benefits that the Dhimmis pay with willing submission unlike the Muslim world where most waste away in the deserts of their own making. Britain is very close to how it should be in their minds – there need only be more Sharia and, Allah willing, more sunshine – then it will be perfect.

    When an Imam declares this he is saying that London is in the House of Islam. No longer in the House of War. Good bye London. You now fall under the rule of Islam.

    • Save Europe

      Yes, but you don’t actually get that he’s saying that to entice more here.

      • Veritas Aequitas

        First, you have to gain a cultural understanding of what Islam is. The Muslim scholar and the deceived interfaith group are embracing Islam in their country and the main city of Great Britain. Civilization Jihad and the Methodology of Dawah provide the path for Muslims to conquer non-believer lands “peacefully”. When they have declared London as a Dar Al-Islam, they do not need to entice more there. Migration can now appear more natural and the next step will be for replacing London’s local laws with Shar’ia. Muslims may even “allow” London’s local laws to coexist with Shar’ia as long as Muslims are allowed to be governed by Shar’ia alone. What many people tend to deny or are naive about is that Islam is a total way of life. It’s just not about religion.

        Lastly, take this quote in the article, “Maulana Syed Ali Raza Rizvi, a prominent Shia cleric, who was born in Pakistan and studied in Iran, said he “feels more Islamic” in Britain than other countries because of the freedom to worship and the multicultural mix.

        He said Islam could be summed up as being about “love and justice” but that the “Muslim political leadership” around the world was failing to foster this.”

        To a western culture mindset, this appears to be a nice warm fuzzy statement. You have to put on a middle east Muslim mindset to interpret this statement. If one is acquainted with the Qur’an, Hadith and Sira you can never “feels more Islamic”. This appears that Islam in Britain has advance further than in the other European countries. As far as Islam being summed up as being about “love and justice” is just a propaganda ploy to deceive non-muslims. To embrace love you have to be a Muslim and to know justice, you have to submit to Shar’ia law.
