'Social workers and police must acknowledge that there is a pattern of men from Pakistani backgrounds grooming young white girls for sex, MPs warn today.
Some officials have been reluctant to draw attention to the problem for fear of being labelled racist and inflaming community tensions, the Home Affairs Select Committee found.
The MPs expressed shock that the sexual abuse of vulnerable children by organised gangs is continuing in every part of the country, and condemned the "inexcusable" postcode lottery that means offenders are more likely to escape justice in certain regions.
Ann Cryer, the former Labour MP for Keighley in West Yorkshire, helped to expose Pakistani men grooming underage white girls for sex in her constituency as far back as 2002.
Her successor as MP for the constituency, Kris Hopkins, told the committee that the local Pakistani community's sense of "victimhood" was used as an excuse for not facing up to the problem.
The MPs concluded: "Evidence presented to us suggests that there is a model of localised grooming of Pakistani-heritage men targeting young white girls.
"This must be acknowledged by official agencies, who we were concerned to hear in some areas of particular community tension, had reportedly been slow to draw attention to the issue for fear of affecting community cohesion."'

Political correctness has resulted in child abuse, rapes and maybe murders bring ignored or at least attention bring minimised. I doubt that this will cease as multiculturalism & political correctness are so deeply embedded in so much of Britain's public sector ethos.
