A British-Pakistani woman has spoken out about the sheer volume of child abuse taking place within her community.
She told Maajid Nawaz on LBC: “Every single Pakistani, girls that I know, including myself, have been abused by uncles or someone within the community.
“But, it’s all very hush hush. There is a real big problem within Pakistani community.
“It’s a problem that has to be addressed.”

It comes a day after it was revealed that around 1,000 girls, some as young as 11, were drugged, raped and/or sexually abused in Telford over the last 40 years – many of the perpetrators were allegedly from the Shropshire town’s Pakistani community.
There is a serious problem in society. We’ve seen it in Rotherham, Rochdale, Newcastle and now Telford. This is organised child abuse on an industrial scale. Politicians can’t bury their heads in the sand any longer, this issue needs to be tackled head on now.
