Watch: Hindu-Muslim tensions increase in Leicester

Weeks of religious unrest started after India defeated Pakistan in an Asia Cup cricket match in Dubai on 28 August.

Since then street fights and attacks between the two communities have increased.

According to Al Jazeera:

‘After the match, a large crowd went out on Melton Road in Leicester, some of them waving Indian flags, to celebrate India’s win over its arch foe Pakistan. Some in the crowd appeared to chant “Pakistan Murdabad” (death to Pakistan), according to videos shared on social media.

Police in Leicester reported a “series of incidents” in different parts of the city over the following week.

On Saturday night, a crowd of about 200 Hindu men marched in the city, with some shouting – “Jai Shri Ram” (Hail Lord Ram) – a war cry for far-right Hindus in India. Soon Muslims came out on the streets leading to scuffles.

The disturbances continued into Sunday with videos posted on local media showing large groups of youths wearing masks and balaclavas fighting in the streets.

A Hindu temple was vandalised on the weekend as a group of Muslim men protested in response to Saturday’s unplanned march during which Muslim residents and shop owners were intimidated.’

Despite condemnation from community and religious leaders, violence flared up again yesterday as groups from the opposing factions met on a local street before police managed to calm the situation down.

  1. ‘Leicester has no place for any foreign extremist ideology.’ It sounds like Wahhabism. Not nationalism at all. This could be stopped point blank with repatriation.

  2. No surprises there. It is part of the playbook to bring chaos to the streets, and it is just the beginning of the globalist destruction agenda. Soon we will see other rival factions join the fray with their own reasons for protest and violence. Whether it is the rising cost of living, housing, power or food, people will be pushed into conflict one way or another. The dark players can’t “build back better” until there’s something to rebuild.

    In tandem with this is the emergence of the new paramilitary police force, and as we will see in Germany, the army permanently patroling the streets beginning in October. We only need to look back to end of the Parliament protest to see how “efficient” they can be and their use of a “fifth column” to start the process.

    We knew this was coming, it is just a matter of time before the tensions grow here. Time to get planning and planting. Their Brave New World is at the door..

    • Soon as media-approved Chris Luxon steps into the top job. Bank on it. The so-called “conservative governments” in the west have done this at every turn for the last 30 years. They somehow always end up being shittier than the libs they purport to protect us all from.

      Why else do you think they’re pushing so hard to disarm the Maori right now under the pretext of “the gengs”. They’re the ones most likely to clash with our new “kiwis”
