Bharat faces menace of ‘No-Go’ zones

The ongoing jihad against Hindus, launched in December 2019, at Shaheen Bagh by Muslim women, has gathered enormous momentum. It has spread all over Bharat and  now poses  a formidable challenge to the entire nation.

The global experience is that the growth of jihadi militancy in any State or area is invariably preceded by certain tell-tale marks. The most important signal is the rapid  growth of  ‘no-go’ zones created by militant Muslim outfits where entry of police is resisted, even banned. 

Experiences of the police forces in European countries tell us that these Muslim-controlled pockets gradually enlarge into extensive ‘no-go’ zones which rapidly evolve into enclaves of ‘vexation and exhaustion’ where lawlessness is used as a strategic tool for exhausting the patience of  the police. 

The entry of police officers is resisted by rowdy gangs of criminals and jihadis by fighting pitched battles with security forces. This is a familiar scene in many countries of Europe. Malmo in Sweden and Mollenbeek in Brussels are striking examples of  havoc caused to law and order in ‘no-go’ zones.

Very much like Europe, most cities and States in Bharat are now dotted with ‘no-go’ areas, where neither the Hindus nor the police can enter without facing resistance and large scale violence by jihadi goons, for instance the recent riots in Bengaluru.

This dangerous development in any State, city or town, heralds the growth of under-bed jihadi groups and must be dealt with effectively by police.

Across the world, ‘no-go’ zones are the favorite hideouts of traitors and fifth columnists and Bharatiya cities are no exception. The resistance offered to the police by mobsters controlling the no-go areas facilitates sheltering of the fifth columnists away from the gaze of police and security forces.

Bharat’s capital, New Delhi, has a large number of ‘no-go’ areas. In June 2013, the citizens of Delhi, especially the motorists and pedestrians on Delhi roads had to suffer through a harrowing experience of lawlessness throughout the night of the Muslim festival of Shab-e-Barat. 

The unsuspecting motorists and commuters were caught in a frightful melee caused by thousands of skullcap wearing motorcyclists. Many of them were gesticulating at motorists, especially teasing the lone women car drivers, while performing stunts on the roads of New Delhi.  

Their rowdy behavior was roundly criticized by the media which faulted the police for the breakdown of public order on the fateful night. These bikers had gathered in a number of ‘no-go’ areas before racing across the city. The next year, in a desperate bid to prevent defiant Muslim bikers from creating mayhem once again on the night of Shab-e-Barat, the  Delhi Police went out of their way to seek help of several  so-called  ‘moderate’ Muslim leaders, including 21 Imams of various mosques. But their endeavors failed to deter the aggressive bikers. 

Caring two hoots for the warnings given by the Delhi Police Commissioner and the unprecedented extensive deployment of police force at nearly 180 strategic points, several determined groups of Muslim bikers came out in a bid to create chaos in the central and south-east Delhi.  They tried to create lawlessness in certain Muslim-dominated areas of East Delhi like Seelampur and Usmanpur. 

Mercifully, the police were able to prevent the bikers from going berserk and challaned almost 2,000 of them and impounded more than 300 motor cycles. Many roguish bikers could not be caught and challaned on the spot despite the best efforts of the police personnel.

There have been sporadic reports of skull-cap bearing bikers trying to create similar lawlessness in some other cities like Mumbai and small towns, too. In Delhi as well in Mumbai gangs of Muslim bikers often gather in ‘no-go’ areas. During the United Progressive Alliance rule the number of ‘no-go’ areas in Delhi and several Bharatiya cities grew manifold.  

The well-researched findings of Soern  Kern about the growth of ‘no-go’ zone has to be read and understood by the officers of Bhartiya Police in the context of what has recently happened in France in November 2015, and in Brussels in March 2016. 

In Bharat too, similar terror tactics were witnessed in Burdwan in October, 2014, and more recently in the ‘no-go’ enclave of Kaliachak in the Malda district of West Bengal in the first week of January 2016.  Hundreds of ‘no-go’ zones have come up in Kerala, Karnataka, U.P., Bihar and Maharashtra.

The real danger posed by the growth of ‘no-go’ zones in Bharatiya cities lies in the possibility of  radical Muslims fortifying their ghettoes and then converting  them into  strategic enclaves of ‘vexation and exhaustion’ for creating  chaos and anarchy. The ideologue of Islamic State, Abu Bakr Naji, has been advocating the establishment of such ungovernable areas as a prelude to the creation of Islamic State.

The phenomenon of aggressive Muslim bikers has now surfaced in many other countries, including the USA and Australia. On most occasions they ride out of ‘no-go’ areas where entry of police is violently opposed.

In a  seminally researched article published in The New Media  Journal on January 29, 2013, Soeren Kern had highlighted that the Islamic extremists were stepping up the creation of ‘no-go’ areas in several European cities. Many ‘no-go’ zones have been functioning in Europe as Islamic micro-states governed by the Sharia law. The governments of the concerned countries have lost control in these areas.    

In the UK, a radical group called Muslims Against Crusaders has launched a campaign to turn 12 British cities, including the national capital, often called ‘Londonistan’, into independent Islamic States. They hope that soon due to sharp rise in Muslim population the so-called Islamic Emirates would start functioning as an autonomous group of Muslim-dominated enclaves ruled by Sharia.

One of these so-called Islamic Emirates Project, includes the cities of Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, as well as the Waltham Forest area in northeast London and Tower Hamlets in East London as areas marked for enforcing the Sharia rule. 

In the Tower Hamlets area of East London (also called Islamic Republic of TowerHamlets), Muslim preachers (who refer  to  it as the  Taliban of Tower Hamlets), often issue death threats to women who refuse to wear veils. Neighborhood streets have been plastered with posters declaring, “You are entering a Sharia controlled zone: Islamic rules enforced.” And street advertisements deemed offensive to Muslims are regularly vandalized or blacked out with spray paint.

In the Finnsbury Park area of Luton, groups of Muslims have been allegedly accused of ethnic cleansing by harassing non-Muslims to the extent that many of them have moved out of Muslim-dominated neighborhoods. Soern Kern also drew attention to Leytonstone in East London, where a known Muslim extremist Abu Izzadeen publicly heckled the former Home Secretary, John Reid, by asking how dare he enter a Muslim (land) colony.

No wonder, now, a Muslim leader of Labour Party has been elected as Mayor of London. Apparently vote bank politics is no longer limited to Bharat.

In France, many neighborhoods populated by Muslim are now considered ‘no-go’ zones by the French police. Furthermore, Kern claims that at the last count, there were 751 Sensitive Urban Zones  (Zones Urbaines Sensibles) or ZUS, as they are euphemistically called. 

That was the number of ‘no-go zones’ more than three years ago. Now the numbers of these zones has further multiplied. A complete list of ZUS can be found on a website of the French government, complete with satellite maps and precise streetwise demarcations. An estimated five million Muslims live in the ZUS territory of France over which the French state has lost control, according to Soern Kern.  

In the capital of Belgium, Brussels (which has more than 25 percent Muslim population), several immigrant dominated neighborhoods like Molenbeek have become ‘no-go’ zones for police officers, who are frequently pelted with rocks by Muslim youth.

Interestingly Molenbeek was in the banner headlines news after the 22nd March, 2016 attacks in Brussels. In the Kuregem district of Brussels, the police are forced to patrol the area with two detachments of police cars. One car is deputed to carry out patrolling while another car follows to protect the first car from being attacked

So intense is the fear of Muslim attacks that in the Molenbeek district of Brussels, police officers patrolling the area have been ordered not to drink coffee or eat a sandwich in public during the Islamic month of Ramadan, lest it hurts the sensibilities of Muslims.   

In the Netherlands, a Dutch court ordered the government to release to the public, a politically incorrect list of 40 ‘no-go’ zones in the country. The top five Muslim-dominated problem neighborhoods of the country are in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht.

The Kolenkit area in Amsterdam is considered as the number one Muslim “problem district” in the country. The next three districts are in Rotterdam – Pendrecht het, Oude Noorden and Bloemhof. The Ondiep district in Utrecht is in the fifth position among ‘no-go’ zones. 

In Sweden, which has some of the most liberal immigration laws in Europe, large swathes of the southern city of Malmö have become ‘no-go’ zones for non-Muslims and policemen. The city has a 25 percent Muslim population. Though still a minority, they often hold the city to ransom because of their wild ways and deeply aggressive mindset.
