MP Batley & Spen targets Hindutva ideology, being biased towards Muslims, says Alan Mendoza
The British Muslim body said the Indian community seeking immediate action against those involved in the attacks is unbalanced. Twitter
London: The UK has seen an increase in communal discord with continued clashes between the Hindu community and the Muslim community. In the midst of it all, Alan Mendoza, Executive Director of The Henry Jackson Society took to Twitter to call out the MP for Batley and Spen who denounced the alleged spread of ‘Hindu ideology’ in his constituency in the UK Parliament, but failed to address the threat to the teacher who sparked protests at a West Yorkshire school after using a controversial image of the Prophet Muhammad in class.
Mendoza shared a letter and wrote: ‘It is nonsense that the MP for Batley & Spen is speaking out against ‘Hindu ideology’ in Leicester (which turned out to be misinformation in a recent report by @HJS_Org), while having said nothing about the teacher to Batley, still fearing for his life for showing a cartoon to his students…”
The letter he was referring to was from Kim Leadbeater, MP for Batley and Spen, who wrote about his constituents’ concern about the rise of Hindutva ideology in the country and the role it has played in recent violence in Leicester.
He spoke of the forwarding of a petition organized by the Indian Muslim Welfare Society to Batley and Spen, writing: “Over a thousand people have signed the petition calling for appropriate action to be taken against the perpetrators of coordinated violence against the Muslim community in Leicester, and a thorough independent investigation into what happened.
It is absurd that the MP for Batley & Spen is mocking ‘Hindu ideology’ in Leicester (which turned out to be misinformation in a recent @HJS_Org report), while having said nothing about Batley’s teacher who still feared for his life for having shown a cartoon to his students… pic.twitter.com/ldPKBvBTs0

According to Leadbeater, “everything must be done to restore good community relations in Leicester and elsewhere, and the evidence of ideological campaigners seeking to create division must be investigated”.
Mendoza, in his tweet, called against the call to action, pointing out that a teacher who threatened after sparking protests at a West Yorkshire school for using a controversial image of the Prophet Muhammad still fears for his life. , while this question remains unanswered.
For the uninitiated, said teacher was suspended in March for showing students a cartoon from the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo during a religious studies class at Batley High School, sparking complaints from parents and protests in front of the school gates.
Notably, Kim Leadbeater, is the sister of former Batley MP Jo Cox, who was murdered by a far-right terrorist in 2016.
