UK bans use of words like `extremism”,`terrorist attacks” to woo Muslim fanaticsNovember 13th, 2008 - 7:23 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov. 13 (ANI): Politically-correct British Government rule-makers have banned a string of words to get religious fanatics on their side.
The move, however, has been slammed for causing confusion in the war on terror, a Daily Star report claims, adding that there still some Muslim hate clerics who are allowed to preach death in the UK.
Banned preacher Omar Bakri recently told Brit Muslims they must fight and die for Islam. Now, Government guidelines have told councils to outlaw confrontational phrases.
Town halls have been instructed to replace the term extremism with community resilience. And terrorist attacks become anti-Islamic activity.
But a new report has found the rules, which were published by the Home Office as part of the 50-million pounds Preventing Violent Extremism program last year, have caused confusion.
The HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Audit Commission study found there was a preference for plain speaking so that issues could be dealt with openly rather than being avoided or disguised as something else.
And it quoted a local Government leader as saying: The key thing is about who the words come from. If they come from a respected religious or community member, they will have more impact than if they come from a Government minister. (ANI)
