‘Muslims run ghettos under Sharia Law, authorities ignore the issue’ – Farage

Mass immigration has created a rash of Muslim “ghettos” in Britain that operate under Sharia Law, Nigel Farage said on Tuesday. He warned police are ignoring the issue because of widespread “moral cowardice.”
In an interview with American TV station Fox News, the UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader said large ghettos had evolved in Britain and Europe where child abuse, female genital mutilation, Sharia Law and extremism are flourishing.
The UKIP chief, who previously blamed his lateness for an event in Wales on immigration, said districts in Northern England were characterized by the “sexual grooming of underage girls…by Muslim men.”
He argued that child sex abuse carried out by Muslims had not been adequately addressed by police and prosecutors in Britain because of a culture of moral apprehension that infiltrates public consciousness.
Farage stressed British authorities have also turned a “blind eye” to hate preachers who are spreading ideologies in the UK the average person would get arrested for.
He claimed the rise of Sharia Law was particularly evident in deprived areas where police and “all the normal agents of the law” have withdrawn.
He insisted Sharia Law has become so prevalent in certain Muslim communities that the last Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, said its partial adoption “seems unavoidable” in the UK.
While commenting on the recent series of terror attacks in Paris, Farage suggested certain large French cities have “no-go zones for non-Muslims.”
