Jeremy Says: Musharraf Murder Charges

jeremy_zeid3Guest article from Jeremy Zeid:

I read recently, with incredulity, that former President of Pakistan, Gen. Musharraf, is to be charged with murder for “failing to prevent the assassination of Benazir Bhutto”.

Will we now see the same charges leveled at the current President and government for “failing to prevent the murders of dozens of innocent women” in so-called “honour killings”, with further charges and prosecutions for failing to prevent the almost daily beatings and acid attacks on young women and girls in this gross perversion of “honour”? There is no “honour” in the murder and mutilation of innocent and defenceless women and girls, NONE.

Likewise there is no “honour” for the cowardly, patronising, supposedly educated worthies, hand wringing politicians and self appointed “community leaders” who are getting away with making outrageous “cultural” and “religious” excuses for these vile atrocities, terrified of actually tackling them.

May I remind readers of a famous quote by Edmund Burke:- “All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing”.

There is a big difference between being a peaceful, accepting, pluralistic society and one paralyzed by political correctness that excuses evil under the guise of “inclusivity and diversity”. We need to make sure that all of us in the UK are the former.
