Blackburn Pensioner Left Unconscious After Pack Attack By ‘Asian’ Gang

An old age pensioner was knocked unconscious following an unprovoked pack attack in Blackburn. The victim a 69 year old man was left with a badly damaged face and a broken nose in the attack.

The only description given for the low life scumbags responsible is…..yes you guest it…..Asian…and we all know who that will be then. Those nice  ‘ religion of peace’ members who have such a positive effect on our society where ever they turn up. Such as Blackburn which is rapidly turning into a full blown Islamic ghetto.

 

A PENSIONER was brutally beaten in a vicious unprovoked attack while walking through Blackburn town centre.

Geoff Richards, 69, said he was knocked unconscious while he was walking along Astley Gate by a group of youths.

His family has released these shocking pictures in the hope of catching the culprits.

Mr Richards said he woke up face-down on the kerb and was struggling to breath after the assault.

He was left with two swollen black eyes and a suspected broken nose.

The retired baker said: “I walked into the Last Orders pub at around 8pm on Saturday, but there was nobody in there so I left. I should have got a taxi, but I decided to walk.

“I walked up Darwen Street and turned up to Sam’s Bar, crossed the road, saw some youths and thought nothing of it.

“I put my foot on the pavement and a blow came out of nowhere.

“They must have given me a hell of a beating. I must have been knocked unconscious.

“I woke up face down with three quarters of my body in the road. My glasses were off and the lenses were on the pavement.

“My hands were covered in blood which must have been from my nose.”

Mr Richards was helped off the ground by someone who came out of Sam’s Bar and phoned the police.

He was taken to Blackburn Royal Infirmary in a police van because he was told there were no ambulances available and returned home at about 2am.

He is due to go back to the hospital in the next few days so doctors can examine his nose.

“I can’t get my head around why somebody would want to do this to me. I would not hurt a fly,” he said.

“It was unprovoked. I had money in my pocket and a mobile phone and they did not take anything.”

Mr Richards also suffers from a lung condition which meant he woke up struggling to breath.

“I can’t get my head around it at all. This is the first time anything like this has happened to me. You do not expect it walking across the road. It was the last thing on my mind.
“It was a vicious unprovoked attack.”

Mr Richards said the incident had put him off going out.

“I went to the post office yesterday but it was a struggle. I was edgy but I thought it was no good stopping in for days and days. I am trying to get out,” he said.

“It has been a hell of a shock. It’s really knocked me for six.

“I would not wish it on anyone.”

Mr Richards said the bruising was starting to go down and he was getting plenty of rest while his brother and niece had been helping him out.

His niece Angela Curwen, 51, from Oswaldtwistle, has shared the pictures on Facebook.

She said: “I love my uncle and it is just devastating for this to happen.

“He is very shaken up and scared by it. He is nearly 70-years-old.

“We have been asking people to share the pictures on social media to try and help catch them.

“If anyone saw anything we would ask them to contact the police. I want it out there. It is a disgusting thing to happen.

“At that time of night there must have been people around.”

A police spokeswoman said they were made aware of the incident at 8.20pm on Saturday.

She said they were given a description of an Asian male and enquiries were on-going.

Anyone with information can call 101 quoting log number 1340 of December 3.

Blackburn Islamization : Mosque Takes Over Management Of Local Sports and Community Centre 

Blackburn with Darwen’s Labour run council have further aided the Muslim takeover of their area by handing over control of a local sports and community centre to the Jamia Ghosia Association, the group that control the Chester Street Mosque of the same name.

The future of the sports and community centre looks bleak. Muslims are hardly known for being the best at sports…. Most likely the Audley Sports and Community Centre will most likely soon become known as Audley Islamic Community Centre as the groups primary objective as described on the charity commission website is the advancement of Islam

The groups self description on the charity commission website:

Charitable objects: THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE ISLAMIC FAITH AS PRACTISED BY THE SUNNI MUSLIM SECT IN BLACKBURN AND ITS ENVIRONS AND THE RELIEF OF POVERTY AND SUFFERING AMONG MEMBERS OF THE SECT IN THE SAID DISTRICT

 

A VOLUNTEER group based at a Blackburn mosque has taken over Audley Sports and Community Centre.The leisure hub will be run by the Jamia Ghosia Association, which is based at Chester Street Mosque.It was one of several groups that applied to Blackburn with Darwen Council to take on the centre and was chosen following a lengthy process.

The move follows the decision by the borough to transfer the management of several community centres because of government budget cuts and initially dismayed users when announced in June.The association has said it plans to continue the services currently on offer at the centre and will use the facilities to help ‘enrich the lives of the community’.Mir Zaman, chairman of the association’s management committee, said: “We would like to thank the council for giving us this opportunity.“We are committed to the long-term sustainable future of Audley Sports and Community Centre for the local and wider community.“Our vision is to engage with residents living in the surrounding areas to become part of a successful active community.”

Council leisure boss Cllr Damian Talbot, said: “Residents told us that the centre is somewhere that they really value so we’re delighted to be working with the Jamia Ghosia Association to secure the centre’s future.“Their application demonstrated that they have the enthusiasm and commitment to build on what the centre already offers and put the community at the heart of everything they do.“I would appeal now to residents to do everything they can to support the association and to help make the scheme a success.”

Anybody interested in volunteering should contact info@audleycentre.co.uk. Council staff given notice in July could be employed by the new management.The association, which will take over the centre in January, also manages the Jamia Ghosia Mosque in Chester Street.

Father Picking His Children Up Has Jaw Broke By ‘Asian’ Thug Outside School

A father attacked by a man described as ‘Asian’ outside a Blackburn school  as he waited to collect his children. Unfortunately Blackburn is one of the UK ‘s most Islamized areas and has the highest Muslim % per resident. Think its safe to assume that the violent culprit is from the religion of peace yet again. All the hallmarks are certainly there. Violent behaviour and a complete lack of morals as to the location and presence of children.  Probably more chance of being hit by lightning than the thug being anything other.

Police in Lancashire are appealing for information after a 37-year-old man suffered a broken jaw following a vicious assault outside a Blackburn school.

Police were called around 3.15pm on June 8 following reports of an incident outside Witton Park High School in Buncer Lane.

The victim had arrived at school to collect his children when another car pulled up ahead of him.

A male passenger left the vehicle, walked up to the victim and punched him several times while he was sat in his car.

The attacker then made off from the scene.

The victim, from Blackburn, suffered a broken jaw and was taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital for treatment?

The offender is described as Asian male, in his 30s, of medium build and clean shaven with black hair. He was wearing a grey t-shirt and grey jogging pants and was seen getting into a silver car after the attack.

Sgt Gary Hennighan, of Lancashire Police, said:

This was a particularly nasty incident which has left a man with some serious injuries.

The assault occurred around school closing time so I would imagine there were a number of people waiting to pick their children up.

I am looking for people to come forward to help us to understand what has happened in this situation.

MUSLIM MEN ATTACKING AND RAPING ON THE STREETS OF THE UK

 

Grade A+ Appeasement At Blackburn School Where Non Muslims Forced To Celebrate Hijab Day

Top marks in Muslim appeasement to Pleckgate High School in Blackburn for pushing Islam onto the non Muslim pupils and staff. Located in a heavily Islamized area already, im sure those non Muslims at the school are very much aware of the Muslim way of life without having more of it forced down their throats having to participate in Hijab day. The local press reported:

 Lancashire students and teachers celebrated the Muslim way of life when they wore headscarves for a day. Pleckgate High School marked World Hijab Day yesterday – an international movement designed to promote community cohesion. The movement was set up by New York resident Nazma Khan, who came up with the idea as a means to foster religious tolerance and understanding by inviting both Muslim and non-Muslim women to experience the hijab for one day.It takes place every year on February 1.

While just under five percent of Britain’s 63 million population are Muslim, there are no official numbers on how many women wear a headscarf or head veil, known as the hijab, but anecdotally the number of women who choose to cover their hair is growing. 

Abdul Hamid Qureshi, chairman of the Lancashire Council of Mosques, said: “Muslim women are becoming more conscious of their faith and are adhering to the hijab more and more. “Now I think it’s increasingly happening. In every household if there are three women, at least one will be wearing it.“I think because of the internet age women are becoming more concious. They want to know who they are, and about their faith.” Muslim women are required to observe the hijab in front of any man they could theoretically marry.

Mr Qureshi said the Koran tells women to dress modestly, and cover their chest and head. He said: “People choose. Some people don’t wear it. It’s not a sinful act not to wear it but it’s a Koranic instruction, so you can’t defy it either.”

Muslim women wearing hijabs and burkas is nothing to do with potential husbands seeing them uncovered. If that was the case why once they are married are they still expected to wear them? No Muslim women are forced to wear them because the husbands / fathers know that other Muslim males cannot be trusted not to act on their deviant sexual urges, forcing themselves onto the girls/women should they become aroused at the sight of  flesh. 

Quran 033.059  :   O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad): that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Muslim and non-Muslim staff and students took part in the day at Pleckgate, organised by RE teacher Shahiesta Raja. She said: “It went really, really well. Lots of members of staff wore it, Muslim and quite a few non-Muslim girls as well.“It helps them to understand how it must feel for a Muslim woman on a daily basis, and to respect why they wear it, and that they make a choice to wear it.”

Pendle’s prospective parliamentary candidate Azhar Ali said: “World Hijab Day is done across the world, in different countries, and there’s no compulsion in this.“It gives people a different perspective and I think anything that brings people together is a good thing.”

US First Lady Michelle Obama came under fire recently for choosing not to cover her hair on a visit to Saudi Arabia. Blackburn Councillor Salim Mulla said: “In my opinion she should have conformed to the values and the principles of the country and should have worn a scarf. It would have shown respect to the Muslim community.”

But Blackburn MP Jack Straw said her decision was ‘a matter between the US protocol department and the Saudis’.”He added that he supported women who choose to wear a hijab. He said: “I’m happy for people to wear the headscarf.“I absolutely respect their right to do so.”

Blackburn Councillor Salim Mulla’s comments about Michelle Obama prove how much hypocrites Muslims in the UK are. Talk about double standards  “she should have conformed to the values and the principles of the country and should have worn a scarf. It would have shown respect to the Muslim community.”

 Oh yeah, so why are Muslims not conforming to the principles of our country then? Where’s the respect shown to the indigenous Brits like they demand others to show in Muslim nations or our own even?  

Hijab day and the like are the kind of ploys Islamists constantly use as part of the stealth jihad they are waging every single day. Trying to push Islam into our daily lives. Thanks to leftist do-goders they are succeeding

Paedo Illegal Immigrant From Afghanistan Groomed 14 Year Old Blackburn Girl

Like it or not, the truth is the far lefts dream of turning Britain in to a multicultural utopia has failed miserably. Thanks to the Labour Party welcoming uneducated and anti social Muslim immigrants with open arms and a welfare cheque.

It was inevitable that word would spread of the easy state funded life Muslims could lead here in the UK. Elevating the UK to the number one destination for people in the 3rd world, who will go to any means to get here. Who then behave with a complete lack of respect to those of us civilized people already here and act like they are still in the backwards dumps they have come from.

Afghan illegal immigrant Zia Maroofkhail is a prime example  of the scum who are turning the Uk into a dystopia. By rights he should be in Kabul helping rebuild his country that our forces risk their lives to regain from the oppressive Taliban. Instead of draining the taxpayer funds here to pay for a court case because he could contain his lusting for underage schoolgirls.

AN AFGHAN asylum seeker is on trial accused of sexual activity with a schoolgirl.

Zia Maroofkhail is accused of striking up a relationship with the youngster, who was 14 at the time, before having sex with her.

The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told the jury at Preston Crown Court she believed the defendant was her ‘boyfriend’ and said he told her he loved her.
The court heard how they first met in a park in Blackburn, when Maroofkhail ‘winked’ at her.The girl told the judge how she visited relatives every weekend and that she thought the defendant must have waited for her near there.

The first time they spoke was in an alleyway, the court was told.The complainant told the court how the two would then chat and arrange to meet by sending messages on Skype.When they got together, they would have sex, she said.The girl said: “I said I am 14, but he does not believe me. He said 15, 16, 17.

“He knows I go to school.”

The teenager told the court that the pair had sex at his house, her house, in an alley and in a field. When they met at his house, it was before school.

The youngster, who admitted she ‘liked’ the defendant, added that if she ever told Maroofkhail, who she knew as Shir Walli, that she did not want to have sex, he would threaten to leave.

The jury was told that DNA from Maroofkhail’s semen was found in two items of the alleged victim’s underwear, as well as on a brown sofa, which she claimed they had sex on.

The defendant had denied the pair had met in person and that the DNA must have been planted by a conspirator.However, he later conceded that they did have sex, but only twice.

Simon Mintz, defending, said his client and the girl did not meet in a park.He told the court: “They met on Skype in fact. “He would say they only knew each other for a couple of months, not the couple of years she describes.

“She turned up out of the blue at his home, walked in, told him she loved him, wanted to marry him and run away with him.

“This was not a full-blown affair.

“It was a short relationship where intercourse took place twice and where she told him that she was 16 going on 17.”

The court was also told how the girl had reported being abused by three men and that she was unhappy at home.

Police Hunt Burka Wearing Muslim Woman After Blackburn Hit And Run

 

Lancashire police are on the hunt for a female Muslim hit and run driver who injured a child in Blackburn.  The only description given by police is the driver was wearing a burka which is very little to go off in a heavily islamized area such as Blackburn.

Blackburn driver leaves five-year-old boy with broken leg

Lancashire Telegraph

Lancashire Telegraph: Faris Sheikh is consoled by his mother, Haseena Hamid, at home after he was knocked down by a car near the junction of Whitewell Place and Ribble Street, Blackburn,

Faris Sheikh is consoled by his mother, Haseena Hamid, at home after he was knocked down by a car near the junction of Whitewell Place and Ribble Street, Blackburn,

A FIVE-year-old boy was left screaming in pain in the street after being hit by a car.

Little Faris Sheikh was playing close to his grandparents’ Blackburn home with a group of friends when he was struck by a silver or grey vehicle around 8pm on Wednesday.

The driver stopped the car briefly in Whitewell Place, Bastwell, but drove away from the scene without leaving any details or offering to help, police said.

Officers investigating the incident are now urging anyone who saw the driver, an Asian woman wearing a burkha, or know who was responsible to contact them.

Westholme pupil Faris, who lives in Cavendish Road, Blackburn, with his parents and sister was being supervised by his uncle when the incident happened.

He was found crying hysterically in the street with tyre marks down his right leg by his mother Haseena Hamid.

The 32-year-old said: “The children were having a water-fight outside, and my brother came running in.

“Then the next minute I came out and saw his leg and it was exploding with bruising.

“I thought I’m not ringing an ambulance, I’m taking him straight to the hospital. I knew they were going to say it was broken.

“He was hysterical, he just said ‘leg’, ‘leg’, ‘leg’, and all I could see was bruising, and it was swelling up.

“He’s never been like that before, he’s a happy child, he never cries.”

The youngster was kept in the Royal Blackburn Hospital overnight, as his leg continued to swell.

He will now be in plaster for at least the next four weeks, but potentially the whole of the school summer holidays.

His family have now urged the driver to come forward.

Faris’ grandmother Mumtaz Hamid, 59, said: “She should come forward, she should have come over here when it happened.

“Accidents happen, but she should have come to my house and said she was sorry, and said let’s take him to the hospital.

“If I had done that I would have come and apologised.

“She had covered her face like a holy person, but if you are a holy person you don’t run away like that.”

Haseena added: “It’s nasty, I just can’t believe that she’s done it, that she’s gone and had the audacity to do it.

“At the time I didn’t have time to think about it, I just picked him up and took him to hospital, but now I’m really angry.

“If she’d stopped I wouldn’t be angry.”

The family have no idea if the car belonged to someone visiting the street or just somebody who had taken a wrong turn.

Faris’ grandfather Abdul Hamid, 62, said: “The accident happened in the flick of an eye.

“When I went outside to see what had happened he was crying, everyone was shouting, we didn’t even know which car had knocked him down.”

Neighbour Saeed Patel, 44, who lives in nearby Ribble Street, said speeding in the area was a problem.

He said: “It’s non-stop around here they come really fast.

“I’ve asked the council for humps before to slow them down, that would help.

“It’s not safe, I was worried something like this would happen.”

Bastwell councillor Shaukat Hussain said drivers should be more cautious during summer months as more children are playing outside.

He said: “I would appeal to drivers to drive a lot more slowly.

“They should be driving slowly anyway, but they should be even more aware that kids may be playing in areas where cars are parked.

“There are no through roads in that area, so I’m a bit surprised to hear that there are problems with speeding.

“If it is local residents who are speeding then I would again appeal to them to slow down.

“We will look into whether there are any parking measures we could introduce there.”

Sgt Sean Cunningham, of the Road Policing Unit, said: “I would appeal for anyone who witnessed this collision or who saw a similar vehicle in the area at around this time to get in touch.

“I would also appeal to the driver themselves to come forward and speak to us on 101.”

 

 

Undercover Filming In Blackburn School Reveals More Extremist Goings On

‘SATANIC’ staff rant in Islamic primary school

AN undercover investigation into a faith school has revealed shocking examples of religious extremism.

jack straw, religious extermism, islamic primary school, staff rant, dispatches, schools, UNDER FIRE: Blackburn MP Jack Straw has backed the school’s teaching [REUTERS]

Footage obtained by Channel 4 appears to show staff talking about stoning gay people and banning music, while clapping, whistling and neck ties are branded “Satanic”.

Channel 4’s Dispatches sent reporters into Islamic and ultra-orthodox Jewish schools.

Their documentary – Faith Schools Undercover: No Clapping In Class – will be screened tomorrow.

Dispatches visited the Olive Primary School in Blackburn, run by the Tauheedul Islam Faith, Education and Community Trust.

Officials there have described the alleged homophobic comments as nothing more than “staff room gossip”.

Other footage is understood to include teaching assistants suggesting “music in school should be banned as non Muslim” and that ties could be turned into snakes on Judgment Day.

There is no suggestion the programme highlights teaching practices at Tauheedul and Channel 4 chiefs could not confirm which Blackburn footage, if any, would be aired.

The school has been held up as a model for Muslim faith schools.

Channel 4’s website said of the 30-minute programme: “Dispatches goes undercover to question the role of faith communities in our schools.

“The programme films undercover in a primary school where clapping and whistling are described as ‘satanic’ practices.

“Elsewhere Dispatches uncovers a network of illegal schools where more than 1,000 boys are being taught suspicion of the outside world and the only subject is religion.”

blackburn, islamic primary school, dispatchesEXTERMISM: The primary school filmed undecovered was the Olive Primary School in Blackburn [GETTY]

“The school has been held up as a model for Muslim faith schools.”

When Dispatches contacted the Tauheedul Trust with its allegations, bosses got in touch with the Department for Education.

They invited it to inspect any aspect of its “policies or practice”.

The DfE ordered an emergency “no notice” Ofsted inspection of Olive Primary and two Tauheedul Islam secondary schools last week.

The trust, which confirmed that Dispatches had filmed undercover, said the inspections had gone “very well”.

A spokesman promised to act “if anything that emerges on the fi lm is shown to undermine our progressive vision, ethos and approach”.

Tauheedul school governor Councillor Solly Khonat said: “Whatever may be said in staff room gossip is not reflected in what goes on in the classroom.”

Blackburn MP and former Home Secretary Jack Straw has backed the school’s teaching.

Mr Straw told a local newspaper: “From what I know, the allegations are groundless.

“I am a personal friend of the trust chairman Kam Kothia, whom I have known for 20 years. I trust him completely.

“Mufti Hamid Patel, the chief executive, is a first-class head teacher.

“Between them they run a very good group of schools.”

Last night a spokesman for Tauheedul Education Trust said: “When we discovered Dispatches had targeted The Olive School we were shocked and disappointed.

“Our schools are open to the world and our curriculum is broad and balanced.”

A Channel 4 spokesman declined to discuss the contents of the programme ahead of transmission.
