It seems Theresa May (left) couldn’t care less about the acid attack on Resham Khan (right) – or any of the other recent attacks on UK citizens who happen to be Muslims.

Yes, it’s an inflammatory headline. Prove me wrong if you like because from where I’m sitting, there seems to be a lot of prejudice against perfectly innocent people – not to mention the attacks on them that breach anti-terror legislation.

Oh, but that’s all right, isn’t it? Because the UK government couldn’t care less.

Good for The Canary, which has published an article on one of the more high-profile attacks. It states:

“Members of the public have come forward to support the victims. A crowdfunding campaign has raised more than £52,000 to help with the recovery.

“This is in stark contrast to a complete silence from Downing Street. And near silence from the media.

“What would have happened if the roles had been reversed? Imagine a Muslim man had approached a white, English couple in their car and doused them in acid. Now imagine that Muslim man had a history of radical, anti-British activity on his Facebook page. Our media and politicians would have responded differently.

“The Daily Mail would have dedicated 14 pages to it. Theresa May would have organised a press conference, and we’d be holding vigils across the country.”

And it points out that the attack could be seen as an act of terrorism according to the Terrorism Act 2000, as it appears to have been “designed to… intimidate the public or a section of the public, and…  for the purpose of advancing a political, religious[, racial] or ideological cause”.

If you’ve read this far, you’re probably wondering what all the fuss is about. “It’s only one incident, Mike” – right?

It isn’t.

During the general election campaign I became aware of a Twitter account run by a person called Aleesha, who tweeted strongly in support of Labour (and was, therefore, a favourite of mine).

Lately, she has been tweeting about attacks on Muslims. And there have been a lot.

See for yourself:

Need I go on?

Four acid attacks on Muslims in the days leading up to July 1; 84 in the previous six months.

The victims were peaceful UK citizens.

But their government is doing nothing.

Can you think of a reason for that?
