Muslims and Bedfordshire police

There is a email doing the rounds about Bedfordshire police policy of entering Muslim households. I've reproduced it below. Bedfordshire police have responded to this here. Unfortunately, they fail to address the real issue. The issue is not whether they have a policy when entering a Muslim household but whether they have a similar policy respect for any non-Muslim groups. Reading their response it looks like they don't.



If they are non-Muslim

• Consider the most opportune time of day to be able to arrest suspects with minimum resistance
• Apply all necessary force to enter the premises and arrest suspects accordingly.

If they are Muslim:

Community leaders must be consulted before raids into Muslim houses.

Officers must not search occupied bedrooms and bathrooms before dawn.

Use of police dogs will be considered serious desecration of the premises.
Cameras and camcorders should not be used in case capturing women in inappropriate dress.
If people are praying at home officers should stand aside and not disrupt the prayer
-they should be allowed the opportunity to finish.
Officers should take their shoes off before raiding a Muslim house.
The reasons for pre-dawn raids on Muslim houses needs to be clear and transparent.
Officers must not touch holy books or religious artefacts without permission.
Muslim prisoners should be allowed to take additional clothing to the station.

With this continuing appeasement, no wonder it’s now predicted that Britain will become an

Islamic State by 2070.

From Norbury's response, it seems likely that they adopt the same appeasement of mulims in Surrey too. We have to challenge this nonsense and get it stopped - we should all be equal under the law, and we have every right to expect the police to apply the laws in a fair and equal manner. The idea that there are special rules pertaining to the arrest of Muslims is ludicrous.

Has anyone asked our MP Michael Gove about this? Before the election, we should ask all the candidates to comment on this and then vote according to the most sensible reply!
