A chilling report has emerged that details the atrocities that at least 1,400 non-Muslim children faced at the hands of Muslims for 16 years in Great Britain because authorities feared they would be viewed as racist.
BBC reports that children as young as 11 were beaten, trafficked and raped by large numbers of men between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, according to a review into child protective services. The worst part is that over a third of the cases were known by authorities, who were afraid to speak up because of the ethnic and religious backgrounds of the attackers.
“Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist,” according to the report’s author, Professor Alexis Jay.
Jay blamed the “blatant” collective failures of the council’s leadership and concluded that “It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered.”
Authorities Ignore 1,400 Non-Muslim Children Repeatedly Attacked By Muslim Rape Gangs
The chilling details of Jay’s report revealed:
Victims were doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, terrorized with guns, made to witness brutally-violent rapes and told they would be the next if they spoke out.
They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten and intimidated.
One victim described gang rape as “a way of life”
Police “regarded many child victims with contempt”
Some fathers tried to rescue their children from abuse but were arrested themselves;
The approximate figure of 1,400 abuse victims is likely to be a conservative estimate of the true scale of abuse.
The majority of the perpetrators were Pakistani, according to Jay’s report. Because of this, others wouldn’t report alleged abuses out of fear they’d be labeled as racist.

One of the victims said that “gang rape” became a way of life for some of the girls who grew up in Rotherham with her. Fathers would also try to track down their daughters to remove them from the homes where they were abused only to be arrested after the police were called to the scene.
According to Jay, the systematic failures within CPS happened despite three reports between 2002 and 2006, that both the council and police were aware of, “which could not have been clearer in the description of the situation in Rotherham.”
Jay says that the first of the reports were “effectively suppressed” because senior officials denied the data was true, and the other two reports were just flat out ignored. Councillors seemed to dismiss the reports as isolated incidents even though they documented widespread abuse.
“Others remembered clear direction from their managers not to [acknowledge the reports],” according to Jay.
Many of the victims believed that the perpetrators were their boyfriends who would shower them with gifts, drugs and alcohol. Some of them still don’t even believe that they were victims of abuse and groomed for sexual pleasure.
Some of the victims had serious mental issues and others from broken homes. Almost all of them had dysfunctional families with parents that suffered from addiction, sexually abused or would beat them.
The girls were eventually rescued by police and taken out of the abusive homes after being monitored by CPS, but it was too little too late.
“I was a child and they should have stepped in,” one of the victims said.
“No matter what’s done now… it’s not going to change that it was too late, it should have been stopped and prevented.”
