The BBC reports that the grave of one of the 7/7 bombers, Hasib Hussain, has been vandalised. Apparently, his was one of a number of graves in the ‘Muslim section’ of Cottingley Cemetery that was vandalised and according to the BBC ‘had racist graffiti scrawled on it.’ Whether it did or not cannot be objectively ascertained, for the BBC deems criticism of an ideology – Islam – to be ‘racist’.
Hasib Hussain does not deserve to be remembered with fondness or with any degree of respect; his name should rather be execrated. He, along with his fellow bombers, took the conscious decision to kill and maim innocent people for no reason at all, and as such, the vandalism of his grave specifically does not cause any disquiet to me. It would have been better had he possessed no grave at all, and whatever had remained of his body had been burned and the ash dumped far out at sea. Putting this aside, it is of course unacceptable that the graves of other Muslims in Cottingley Cemetery were vandalised, and the fact of their vandalism will understandably be painful to their family and loved ones. Such an action cannot be condoned. However, only two graves – one of which was Hussain’s – were damaged. West Yorkshire Police state that:
Given that the West Yorkshire Police refer to only two headstones, why does the BBC report mention ‘a number of graves’, for this seems to imply more than two? Unfortunately, given the innate contemporary bias and unreliability of the broadcaster in reporting such matters, doubt must be cast upon its portrayal of this act of vandalism. As one commenter - Dinan - has stated below, gravestones are vandalised every day, yet the BBC chose to accord this incident national prominence and to highlight it as a 'racist hate crime'. Why then did the BBC choose to completely ignore the racist nature of the murder of Luke Fitzpatrick (who was white) in Dollis Hill last month, when a 22-strong masked black gang descended upon a pub armed with bats and knives and unleashed a violent assault upon the drinkers inside? Apparently, the defacing of a gravestone belonging to a Muslim supremacist mass murderer is deemed to be some heinous 'racist hate crime', whereas a black gang attack upon white Britons resulting in death and injury, is not. The editorial policy of the BBC can be described as nothing less than perverse."We have received a report of damage to two graves in the Muslim section of Cottingley Cemetery and we are investigating.”"Neighbourhood Policing officers are paying extra attention to the area and have liaised with local community representatives to reassure them."
Hussain murdered 13 members of the public, and wounded many others.
