Abuse going unreported in Britain’s south Asian communities – study
Research project finds lack of awareness about what constitutes criminal behaviour endemic among first generation families
No doubt some will castigate me for waacism here but I’m afraid not: this is culturalism. Yes, some cultures are better than others.
Rapists and abusers are escaping justice in Britain’s south Asian communities as sexual and domestic violence is going unreported by women and children who are trapped in a pervasive culture of shame, according to a new academic study.
The research project, carried out across several counties in England and Wales, has found that a lack of awareness about what constitutes criminal behaviour is endemic among first generation immigrant families from Pakistan, Bangladesh and India.
I think we’ll find, upon closer examination, that it’s certain cultures within those groups rather than all of the groups themselves. Just as within third and fourth generation, or longer, Britons, we’ll find certain behaviours concentrated in certain cultural groupings.
