In a previous post I commented on the problems caused in Britain by the small colonies of Pakistanis there, some of whom act on their religious beliefs that it’s morally acceptable to rape women and especially underage girls.
Another example of such attitudes that may not be completely compatible with Western ideals is a Pakistani immigrant in Brooklyn who beat his wife to death because she talked back to him and cooked him some food he didn’t like.
The man’s lawyer says he shouldn’t be convicted of murder because “He comes from a culture where he thinks this is appropriate conduct, where he can hit his wife.” So that’s all right, then.
Maybe we should be thinking about whether we want to encourage more people from such a culture to live here. It’s just a thought.
