It is Not Just the Mosque…

Recently – what appears to be some sort of political gang fight – broke out at the Bangladeshi Community Centre is in the Roundhay Road in the Harehills area, just north-east of Leeds City Centre. The fight took place 30 May 2015 and police were called out around 12:30pm to break up the scuffle in the English city. This violence was between rival political factions within the Bangladeshi community.

This was not the first time violence has erupted in this community. In 2013, the Yorkshire Post reported violence during `Eid celebrations at the same venue (even the police dogs got to see some action!). As I have said before, this disease of disorganisation and resorting to violence when unable to articulate is not just at the local men’s club (read mosque), rather it is at any function or venue where infrastructure and leadership is required. Again, this is just a reinforcement of Post-Masjidism and how it will no doubt be a factor in the future for the youth that see these grotesque scenes.
