Areas of Bradford, England, are no-go zones for “certain ethnic groups” and the city is “heading toward disaster”, councilors have warned, citing attacks on whites in “Asian” areas.
Bradford is considered one of the most dangerous cities in the UK, according to a YouGov poll.
Councilor, Vanda Greenwood, said that young women did not feel safe in parts of the town because of gangs of young “Asian” men.
“There is a real problem of people’s perception of Bradford. My daughter is 23 and she and her friends say they will not come into Bradford for a drink or night out because they say there are gangs of Asian males hanging around,” Greenwood said.
Bradford Council’s Corporate Overview and Scrutiny Committee chairman Arshad Hussain slammed ethnic segregation and failed integration, and he blamed political correctness for the deterioration, Breitbart reported.
Hussain described the situation a “horrible state of affairs” in response to the Government’s Casey Review, which highlighted growing ethnic divisions, published a year ago.
The Casey Review noted the “regressive religious and cultural ideologies” and self-censorship being applied out of fear of being “labelled racist”.
Last month, Dame Louise Casey, the author, said integration had failed and that political correctness has aided Muslim extremism.
Councilor Hussain outlined attacks on white-owned businesses. “Community relations in this city were a lot better 25 years ago. Are we really achieving what we are supposed to be achieving? I don’t think so. Last month on Bonfire Night in my ward, three pubs were stoned by Asian youths,” he said.
The Telegraph and Argus reported that the Red Lion and Round Thorn pubs, in the West of the city, were among those targeted. “These were the only white businesses in the area. No Asian businesses were attacked. They were targeted because they were white,” he added.
“I am really cheesed off with things like this. There are so many areas in this city where white people are scared to go into. Likewise, there are other areas where Asian people are scared to go into.” But Hussain could not name such white areas
Conservative councilor Simon Cooke agreed. “I represent thousands of people who never come into Bradford and I am only five miles up the road. They say they don’t feel safe. That’s the reality. And I am sure there are people who live in Girlington who would prefer not to come to Cullingworth and I don’t like that.
“The perception of what Bradford is like is the problem. Mention danger drivers and who comes to mind? And integration. Both sides don’t want to integrate.”
