Deafening silence of the feminists

But you turned out to be too cowardly to use it

You may have found it but you turned out to be too cowardly to use it

Female victimhood. Yet where two pieties — feminism and multiculturalism — come into conflict, writes Dalrymple,

the only way of preserving both is an indecent silence.

He points out that the British authorities

have turned a cowardly blind eye to the real nature of forced marriages in order to avoid the charge of racial discrimination.

In this way, in parts of England’s urban Midlands and North and elsewhere in the country,

the life of the Punjab continues amid the architecture of the Industrial Revolution.
