From personal experiences i feel that this wasa problem waiting to happen, many muslim immigrants to the UK rightly held on to their beliefs and customs when they arrived here but they went wrong when many started teaching their children that they are only to be faithful and loyal to their country of origin, i.e. Pakistan or India... many of these children were born and raised in the UK, they were brought up with no loyalties to this country and that must have affected them mentally, how do you expect your child to be patriotic to his country of origin when they dont know much about it or only visited it few times? these yougsters were prevented by their parents from even supporting the English footbal team which meant most grew up with no sence of belonging with no sence of pride, they have become isolated within their adapted country.
I think growing up in the UK for some people while continuosly being told not to have any pride of this country has created some major psychological problems which may have led some young people to carry out major criminal offences such as blowing up trains in the name of Islam.
There has not been any serious racists attacks on muslims in the UK yet, we have here a great multi ethnic society, probably the best in the world, muslims until few years ago used to be known as law abiding hard working people, these views are changing because of the action of few so called muslims which in turn encouraged the bad publicity muslims are getting.
Its about time all major Muslim leaders in the UK and else where, stood up and said enough is enough, they should stop blaming society, the press, the anti muslim lobby and so on and concentrate on the muslim community itself and see where things went wrong, the main blame lies within us and has to be stopped.
If we want our children to continue living in this country a tolerant and peaceful life then we should allow them to be themselves to be British, Danish, French or which ever country they are in while at the same time teach them to be proud of their muslim heritage.
