Conservatives to forcefully assimilate Muslims in UK
London, Sept 28 (PTI) A Senior Conservative Party leader today said the party, if voted to power, would force Muslims to assimilate into the British society and would ban groups of the community even if they solely engage in political activities.
Speaking at the start of Party Conference in Birmingham, David Cameron’s security adviser Dame Pauline Neville-Jones said her party has “plans to force Muslims to integrate into British Society.” In a deliberately populist tone, she said her party would ban Muslim groups even if they are not involved in violence or promoting violence and solely engage in political activities which are widely accepted from other communities.
She also made threats against Islamic charities and announced that her party would ban sharia courts from operating in the UK, though earlier this year the Lord Chief Justice Lord Phillips has welcomed some sort of sharia based arbitration for settling disputes.
Meanwhile, party leader David Cameron announced that his party has a “clear plan” to get Britain through this time of economic instability.
At the conference, Cameron said that his government would legislate to protect savers’ deposits up to 50,000 pounds and, in the event of a bank collapsing, get them their money back within seven days.
He also disclosed his plans of giving more powers to Bank of England so that it could take over, reconstruct and administrate banks which get into difficulty.
Cameron said his party would set up an “Office for Budget Responsibility” which would monitor public finances and hold the Government to account. PTI
