 Religious Violence in Leicester

This seems to be a growing problem in the Midlands down south. Incredibly this follows on from violence last month after the India /Pakistan cricket match which puts the old firm rivalry into perspective.

Edit: Been a while since I`ve posted a link. Cannae mind how to do it.
2nd Edit : Now I remember!

That article says a lot, without saying a lot. For example, what race, religion was going after what race, religion. What flag was it they took down. Apart from the comments from the local religious leaders there`s not a lot of information.
It`s like the reporting on the abuse rings in towns like Rotherham, Oldham etc, the race and background of the people involved was curiously missing from the reports initially and it didn`t become clear until the media showed the pictures of those responsible

Probably scared to mention race and religion and rightly so.

The OP says religious violence in Leicester.
The BBC article clearly states that it is Hindus and Muslims and links it to an India v Pakistan match.
No one appears to be scared of saying anything about it.

Perhaps `cultural` violence would have been a better description. Or maybe not.

And although my eyes were open
They just might as well be closed

Cultural, religious, nationalist. You can take your pick, really.
Maybe youth violence, too, since most people involved appear to be relatively young.

I`m sure it will have a lot of parallels with sectarian violence in Glasgow and football hooliganism (especially in the 70s and 80s).

"Officers tried to hold back crowds amid tensions involving mainly young men from sections of the Muslim and Hindu communities"

"Suleman Nagdi, of the Leicester-based Federation of Muslim Organisations told the BBC: "What we have seen on the streets is very alarming."

"There have been problems in the community since the India and Pakistan cricket match and while that game often sparks gatherings they have not in the past turned this ugly."

"Sanjiv Patel, who represents Hindu and Jain temples across Leicester, said he was deeply saddened and shocked by Saturday night`s disorder.

He said: "We have lived in harmony in the city for many decades but over the past few weeks it is clear there are things that need to be discussed around the table to get out what people are unhappy about."

"Across the Hindu and Jain community and with our Muslim brothers and sisters and leaders we are consistently saying `calm minds, calm heads`.""

"He added: "It`s mostly young men in their late teens and early 20s and I have heard suggestions people have come in (to the city) from outside looking for an opportunity to have a set to."

"Sir Peter said it was important community leaders continued to try to de-escalate the situation but he acknowledged it was a challenge to get through to young people"

I`m not sure what article you guys are reading. Clearly states the religion of the people involved, mentions the countries involved in the cricket game that has been a catalyst for much of the trouble, references the demographics of those involved (young men of said religions) asks for comment from figureheads connected to the religions and then a comment from community leaders. Its all there.

That was a shameful saga - where the local authorities and police shied away from addressing the ethnicity of the alleged offenders for fear of racial issues.

Despite a local youth worker providing a detailed report on what was happening.
