Quote:Police adopt uniform hijab

Police have opened the door to female Muslim recruits by incorporating the hijab into the uniform.

The force has become the latest to approve a design for a headscarf suitable for officers on patrol.

Senior officers believe the lack of the option has deterred applications from the considerable number of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab.

The police hijab is plain black and made of a flame-retardant material.

Officers will be able to wear a standard police hat on top of it.

A small number of forces nationwide have taken a similar step, including Thames Valley and the Metropolitan police.

Superintendent Geoff Feavyour, who leads the Leicestershire Constabulary recruitment team, compared the development to the incorporation of the turban several years ago, which removed a barrier to the recruitment of male Sikhs.

The police's annual report for 2007/08 showed women made up about 23 per cent of the force's officers.

The number of officers from black and Asian communities stood at about six per cent – short of the 15 per cent target.

Mr Feavyour said: "Clearly, we want people from all walks of life to join the force and the fact we have the hijab available now shows our commitment to that. It's an extension to our uniform which will, hopefully, show people they are welcome.

"It is very important to us that the force reflects the community it serves."

The move has also been welcomed by officers, including the Leicestershire branch of the National Association of Muslim Police.

Sgt Yakub Ismail, chairman of the branch, said: "Leicestershire Constabulary is always understanding and supportive of the religious needs of its staff.

"It has always encouraged applicants from all communities and religious denominations.

"I firmly believe neighbourhood policing can only be truly achieved by having officers from within those neighbourhoods being part of the police family."

Sughra Ahmed, a research fellow at the Islamic Foundation, in Markfield, said: "Not every Muslim woman who wants to join the police would want to wear the hijab, but that choice is there now and that is a very important step.

"There may also be women who are already with the force who do not wear the scarf but choose to later. Again, this will be positive for them."

Sabrina Khan, a 19-year-old student from Evington, Leicester, said: "I don't wear the veil, but a lot of my family and friends do.

"I have seen Sikh officers wearing turbans and if I saw a female officer wearing the hijab, I would feel that the police respected the Muslim faith."

Osob Osman, an 18-year-old student from North Evington, said: "The hijab has had a lot of bad press during the past couple of years.

"This will give women more career opportunities and, hopefully, change people's attitudes to Muslim people."

Police spoke to community groups, including the Leicestershire Federation of Muslim Organisations, when they were developing the garment.

Suleman Nagdi, spokesman for the federation, said: "It's a wonderful move and it will help the police encompass a wider range of people in its recruitment."

Resham Singh Sandhu, chairman of the Sikh Welfare and Cultural Society and a trustee of Leicester Council of Faiths, said: "This is a positive step forward for religious people who want to serve the community as police officers."


With the Muslim population growing 10 times faster than the other Brits I foresee major problems in the years ahead.
Same thing happened in Canada with Sikhs who entered the RCMP. They adjusted the uniform. People predicted trouble for the future, especially considering how many Sikhs were immigrating to the country at the time. That was about 20 years ago. What happened? Nothing. It was forgotten.








Ahk
That was because they were Sikhs instead of Islamic?

Hijab on a Policewoman, irony. lol
Well okay but Sikh seperatists blew up Air India 182...


"Air India Flight 182 was an Air India flight operating on a Toronto-Montreal-London-Delhi-Bombay route. On 23 June 1985 the Boeing 747-237B operating on the route was bombed in Irish airspace in the single deadliest terrorist attack involving an aircraft to that date. It remains to this day the largest mass murder in current Canadian history. "





Just sayin',
Ahk
Well, always a bad egg somewhere, but the consistancy really doesn't seem to be there?

And no, Islamic terror isn't on the same level as a crazy Sikh and Timmy McVeigh.

Back at ya,

The Muslim population of UK is actually shrinking. Foresee whatever you want. :lol:
Quote:Muslim population 'rising 10 times faster than rest of society'

The Muslim population in Britain has grown by more than 500,000 to 2.4 million in just four years, according to official research collated for The Times.

The population multiplied 10 times faster than the rest of society, the research by the Office for National Statistics reveals. In the same period the number of Christians in the country fell by more than 2 million.

You should find a new source for your information 'Q'.
I am curious -

will the Moslem males accept the authority of a female Moslem law officer?
I can help out with maths. Your source says

"The total number of Muslims in Great Britain:

2004: 1,870,000

2005: 2,017,000

2006: 2,142,000

2007: 2,327,000

2008: 2,422,000"

what looks to me like 552,000 more Muslims.

The whole population of UK in

2004 was 59,835,000

and

2008 was 61,291,000

1,456,000 more folks, 904,000 probably non Muslims. If your headline

Muslim population 'rising 10 times faster than rest of society'

were true, there'd be only 55,200 more non Muslims.

Your source also says

"Experts said that the increase was attributable to immigration, a higher birthrate and conversions to Islam during the period of 2004-2008, when the data was gathered. They said that it also suggested a growing willingness among believers to describe themselves as Muslims because the western reaction to war and terrorism had strengthened their sense of identity."

Seems there were quite a lot of Muslims who didn't want to be identified as such, and were listed in the older statistics as whatever. Seems also that your war of terror strengthened them somehow, and makes them proud to be Muslims. Didn't I tell you, Warbicycle, it was the most stupid thing you could do?
Now here was an interesting question. Would a Muslim male respect her authority? I would say he better learn to.

Which is the silver lining behind the cloud here. Muslim females being subservient is a little too much accepted in their home culture,maybe this would turn out to be a good thing guys?
Let's review your math, Q. I assume your numbers are correct.
The percent increase of Muslims from 2004 to 2008 is 552/1870 = 29.52%.

The percent increase of non Muslims from 2004 to 2008 is 904/57965 = 1.56%.

Wow, the percentage increase in Muslims is even greater than the 10% advertised.
I suggest you also repeat maths. That's the whole rise in % over five years. From year to year, cumulating, it's actually a near tenfold increase in % Muslims vs infidels, but the headline doesn't speak about %. S6

He has a point here, guys.
It'll be cute till Britain becomes more Islamic, look for these dashing policewomen to disappear off the work force in the new future.

These people are not stupid, they'll put up with it till they become the majority culture and this able to really influence things.

Thanks.

That's why I asked it.

They'll be called only when there's trouble with Muslims. Be concerned if white males, and females respect them. Rather not.
Yeah, right -

Caller - "There's a disturbance in the street at 123 Oak St.

911 - "Are they men or women?"

Caller - "It's a group of men."

911 - "What religion are they?"

Caller - "How do I know? Just send somebody, quick!"

911 - "We need to know - are they Muslim? We have a special Muslim Task Force consisting of 3 Muslim law officers."

Caller - "I'm not sure, they could be Thai."

911 - "Hang up, Quadrat, and quit making these calls."

I wonder what kind of jobs do the Muslims occupy in the West? What is a percentage of blue-collars vs. white-collars?

Yeah...relax. Muslims live in their own neighbourhoods. So they send a white policeman and a Muslim woman to patrol there. Same as in the U.S. The Hispanic policemen patrol were the Hispanics dwell, and the black ones trough the areas of blacks. And if there's a call from Paki street in London they send them, and if Pakis are invited and questioned at the police station, the fetch one of the ladies to do it.
