Recently the right wing bigots who class themselves as columnists in mainstream British Newspaper have started attacking me for taking a different position to theirs on Nazir Ali's comments on no go areas by Muslim extremists in the UK, see below for comments:
Mohammed Shafiq accused the Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, of spreading hatred towards Muslims
Writing in the Daily Express, Forsyth laid into Mr Shafiq, spokesman for the Rochdale-based Ramadhan Foundation, over his comments.
Forsyth called for his resignation for saying that fundamentalism had made some Islamic communities hostile to Christians and those from other faiths.
But Day of the Jackal author Forsyth said the Foundation and fellow Muslim organisation, the Islamic Society of Great Britain, were over-reacting and accused them of distorting the truth.
He wrote in the Express: "The Ramadhan Foundation claimed again that anyone criticising even the most extreme proponents of the poison that beyond any doubt exists inside the Muslim ‘umma’ in our country is criticising all Muslims.
"This is simply not true and one suspects these ‘spokesmen’ secretly know it.
"The Bishop made absolutely plain that he was referring to extremists and to suggest that no such maniacs exist is ludicrous."
He added: "To claim to speak for British Islam, but only to rage at a Christian bishop who preaches against the evil of hatred – and hatred is evil in all beliefs – is not the answer."
But Mr Shafiq has hit back at the criticism, claiming the column was an attempt to demonise his organisation.
He said: "There is clear intent to demonise and attack a Muslim organisation, which works to build understanding between different communities.
"There is clearly an attempt to attack me in particular and damage my reputation. These comments belittle the work we do."
