Britain: Fears of explosion of Racial violence between Negroes and South Asian (Pakistani) Muslims

Mohammad Taufiq Sattar, whose wife and three children were killed in the devastating house fire in Leicester, early Friday morning, said: “I deeply miss my beautiful wife and three beautiful children.”
Police arrested five people in connection with the fire on Saturday afternoon, in Leicester. They were three women, aged 19, 20 and 27, and two men, aged 19 and 49.
Mr Sattar, 52, added: “What has happened has happened, and nothing can be reversed, but I hope justice prevails and in future, this should not happen to any family in the UK.”
He spoke after an emotional prayer service for his wife Shehnila Taufiq, 47, their 19-year-old daughter Zainab, and two sons Bilal, 17, and Jamal, 15, held yesterday afternoon at the Jame Mosque, near the family’s home.
He said: “The people of Leicester have been very supportive. A real big thanks to the police department in Leicestershire for their good work and the media for being patient, understanding the pain which I am going through at present.
“I am also thankful for the local mosque, they made me feel that despite losing my immediate entire family the entire community in Leicester is family to me.”
During his address inside the mosque, Mr Sattar also said he had been comforted by the condolences he had received from "the communities of Leicester, the UK and abroad."
He added: "I accept what God has destined for me and I thank God in times of joy and tribulation."
The murder of Mrs Taufiq and her children came a few hours after the killing of Antoin Akpom, a black father of one, less than a mile away.
That led to speculation the British Pakistani family may have been targeted in a case of mistaken identity, by someone seeking revenge for Mr Akpom’s death.
Police and community leaders yesterday appealed for calm over fears that the suspected murders could lead to racial tensions.
They said they were absolutely sure that Mrs Taufiq and her children had nothing to do with the murder of the former football coach.
But there were fears that some will attempt to exploit the deaths to create friction between the city’s Asian and Afro-Caribbean communities.
Extra police patrols have been laid on to reassure anxious locals and prevent any flashpoints between youths from different minority communities.
Dr Shofiqul Chowdhury, a councillor in the Spinney Hills ward where Mr Akpom, 20, a former football coach lived, said: “I’m worried that there are elements who will use these two tragic incidents to create tension between our city’s communities.
“That will not bring any of the dead back and I would urge people to do all they can to help the police catch who was responsible for these deaths, rather than stir things up to divide Asian against Afro-Caribbean.”
Mrs Taufiq and her children died after fire tore through their home in Wood Hill, early on Friday morning. Her husband, Mohammed Taufiq Al Sattar, a neurosurgeon who had been due to return from his job in Dublin for the weekend, was contacted by a neighbour bearing the devastating news.
Mr Sattar, 52, quickly returned to Leicester, where yesterday afternoon he movingly addressed worshippers at the Jame Mosque, near the family’s home, during a special service of prayers for his wife and children.
Leicestershire Police said officers were still investigating a possible link between the murder of Mr Akpom and the suspected arson seven hours later. Inquiries have found “absolutely no evidence” to suggest anyone who lived at the property was involved in the earlier incident.
But detectives are trying to establish whether it was targeted by someone who mistakenly thought the occupants were involved in his fatal stabbing in Kent Street at 5.30pm on Thursday.
Leicestershire’s Assistant Chief Constable Roger Bannister said on Saturday: “Because of the proximity – in terms of time and location – of the two incidents, it is right that we look at whether there are links between the two crimes.
“However, at this stage in our investigations we have found nothing to suggest the residents of the house devastated by the fire had anything to do with the Kent Street incident.”
He added: “Two families have been devastated and whole communities have been rocked by these events. Leicester is a city of many faiths and communities and regardless of background and faith there is a real sense of communities coming together and a real desire to see those responsible brought to justice.”
Three people, two women and a man, all aged 19, were being questioned by police in connection with the murder of Mr Akpom. At the same time forensics officers continued to examine the gutted remains of Mr Al Sattar’s home.
Keith Vaz, the MP for Leicester East, joined the appeals for calm, saying Mr Sattar had been left “devastated” by the death of his wife and children. He added that he kept asking “just one question – why?”
Speaking to local residents Mr Vaz said: “Putting yourself in his position, you go off to work to save lives as a doctor and you arrive home and find your wife and two sons and daughter are all dead in the most horrible of circumstances. It’s absolutely terrible.”
Mr Sattar works as a consultant neurosurgeon at the Beaumont Hospital in Dublin and with private hospitals in the city, the Blackrock and Hermitage clinics.
He and his wife, an Islamic teacher who trained as a doctor, moved from Pakistan to Manchester, before settling in Dublin around 15 years ago. In 2007 the children moved to the UK with their mother to continue their Islamic education in Leicester, but returned regularly to be with their father at the family home in the Castleknock area of the Irish capital.
Dr Ali Saleem, of the Islamic Cultural Centre in Dublin, said the family had planned to return permanently to Ireland after the children finished their education.
A witness to Mr Akpom’s murder said he had heard someone vowing to take revenge against the killer. Harsh Chauhan, 56, a garage mechanic said: 'I could hear shouting and screaming about getting revenge. It seemed like they knew the attacker, or at least they thought that they did.”
Mr Akpom was a former player and coach for Leicester Nirvana Football Club. His mother, Cheryl Armatrading, said: “Antoin was a beautiful boy. He had just had a young baby and he had a good job. I just want to know if anybody knows who killed my boy. I don’t know how I’m going to deal with this. It’s too much.”
Mr Bannister said: “We know there are local people who know more about both incidents and the people responsible and we would appeal to their consciences. Please help us to find those responsible.”



Of course they fear reprisals, it is the only way these primates know how to behave! Say or do anything, absolutely A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G to 'upset' the mohammadins or the negroes and they respond with violence! The sooner the truth is accepted that these creatures are not even the same species as us, the better. We need to stop treating them as such, or go all the way and uphold the 'human rights' of all creatures with fur and 4 limbs! Send them packing back to their cesspit homelands or keep them in safari parks, which are heavily guarded lest one escapes.....
