There’s no other way to respond to this but with a laugh. The Muslim Council of Britain have released a statement saying: “The MCB considers it yet another example of insensitivity to Muslim opinion that will only result in their further alienation.”
Alienation has become the MCB’s favourite word now. Why? Because ‘alienation’ leads to suicide bombers of course. Hence Rushdie’s knighthood will lead to more young, angry Muslim men and more suicide bombers if the MCB is to be believed. They don’t have much faith in the Muslim youth do they? Maybe the MCB could respond by getting Sir Iqbal Sacranie to give up his knighthood in protest. Plus, it looks like the Pakistani minister too has backtracked. I don’t understand why our govt is being so apologetic. If a Pakistani minister is encouraging suicide bombings here then we should respond by cutting off all their foreign aid.
