Rochdale imam murder-in-playground suspect arrested

19 February 2016

Police arrested a suspect for murder in Rochdale, Friday, after an imam died in hospital after being found bleeding with a fatal head injury in a school playground on Thursday evening.

The ‘low brow’ sections of the Rupert Murdoch empire, like British daily The Sun, are notorious for whipping up racism.

London daily The Times is a ‘high brow’ part of the Murdoch empire. But they turn out to be not really any better.

Top cop calls for Times apology

Monday 22nd February 2016

A TOP police chief demanded yesterday that The Times newspaper immediately apologise for its “offensive” linking of the murder of a Muslim man to child sex grooming.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) chief constable Ian Hopkins sent an open letter to the newspaper on Saturday saying he is “appalled” over its headline “imam beaten to death in sex grooming town.”

The paper printed the line above a story of the death of Jalal Uddin, 56, who was found covered in blood after suffering injuries to his head last Thursday.

Mr Uddin is believed to have taken a shortcut home from a friend’s house in Rochdale at about 9pm on Wednesday.

A 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and released without charge.

Mr Hopkins wrote: “The headline has no relevance to the horrific murder of a former imam in Rochdale … I have received much feedback about the outrage that the article has caused.

“Your headline and its irrelevance to this case has the potential to cause community tension. It is also offensive to the thousands of peaceful law abiding Muslims and non-Muslims living in Rochdale, who are shocked by this murder.”

GMP has “not ruled out” that the attack was racially motivated, he continued.

Critics have urged people to report the newspaper to the Independent Press Standards Organisation (Ipso). The Times later changed “sex grooming town” to “Rochdale” in its online version.

Muslim Council of Britain secretary-general Dr Shuja Shafi said: “We would urge the community to be vigilant and offer support whilst travelling.”

The Sun‘s Kelvin Mackenzie sparks 800 complaints to press regulator after ‘completely unacceptable’ attack on Muslim journalist. Channel 4 News brands 69-year-old’s comments ‘offensive, completely unacceptable and arguably tantamount to inciting religious and even racial hatred’: here.

Former editor of the Sun, Kelvin MacKenzie, has been suspended from his position at Rupert Murdoch’s right-wing tabloid after authoring a column that is particularly filthy, even by his standards. In it, MacKenzie compared 23-year-old Everton footballer Ross Barkley, who is of mixed race, with a gorilla and defamed the working class of Liverpool: here.
