Officers in one Home Counties Force have been told to take their shoes off and not use sniffer dogs when raiding Muslim homes. According to an article which appeared in yesterday’s Luton on Sunday, Bedfordshire Constabulary has issued an 18-point guide of “dos and don'ts” when dealing with Muslims who are suspected of terrorist or drugs offences.

The guidelines state that 'the Muslim community feels victimised and suspicious of counter terrorist police operations and in the current climate a search at a British Muslim household has the potential to become a critical incident and come under intense scrutiny'.

It then lists 18 points police officers should note.

These include:

• Rapid entry needs to be the last resort and raids into Muslim houses are discouraged for a number of religious dignity reasons.

• Police should seek to avoid looking at unclad Muslim women and allow them an opportunity to dress and cover their heads.

• For reasons of dignity officers should seek to avoid entering occupied bedrooms and bathrooms even before dawn.

• Use of police dogs will be considered serious desecration of the premises and may necessitate extensive cleaning of the house and disposal of household items.

• Advice should be sought before considering the use of cameras and camcorders due to the risk of capturing individuals, especially women, in inappropriate dress.

• Muslim prisoners should be allowed to take additional clothing to the station.

• If people are praying at home officers should stand aside and not disrupt the prayer. They should be allowed the opportunity to finish.

• Officers should not take shoes into the houses, especially in areas that might be kept pure for prayer purposes.

• In the current climate the justification for pre-dawn raids on Muslim houses needs to be clear and transparent.

• Non-Muslims are not allowed to touch holy books, Qurans or religious artefacts without permission. Where possible, Muslim officers in a state of 'Wudhu' (preparation before prayer) should be used for this purpose.

Guidelines welcomed

Chairman of Luton Council of Faiths, Zafar Khan, welcomed the guidelines but said the police should deal with all faiths sensitively.

He said: "Guidelines on how to deal and interact with the community in all faiths should be welcomed.

"It's a question of being sensitive and informed and if that makes the policing more effective and more sensitive that has to be a good thing."

A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said: "The guidelines are regularly issued to all staff as a reminder of the force protocol when entering a Muslim household.

"We take very seriously the culture surrounding all faiths and feel it is important to respect those beliefs, even while carrying out police business. We would like to reassure all communities that any current or perceived tensions, which might be heightened as a result of recent events, will not affect how police deal with Muslims or anyone else."

With this of police response Britain must be the laughing stock of the world. Our traditional respect and toleration, our warm welcome and our hospitality to people from all over the world is being abused and stretched to limits being all reason.

We are in the middle of a global war against fundamentalist extremist, 57 people have been killed, over 700 injured on the tube and streets of London. The resources of the security services are stretched and need all the positive support from senior officers and ministers as possible. If anything it is now time to repeal the many acts of parliament which have been implemented in the past to “prevent discrimination”, it is time to tear up the MacPherson Report which berated the police for being institutionally “racist” and let the front line officers do what they do best unhindered by political correctness.

"Comedy" Sketch

We do not for one moment believe that the officers involved in the front line of anti-terrorism; the professional men and women who risk their own lives will adopt these daft procedures. Common sense suggests survival instincts and professionalism will prevail.

One can just imagine the scene It's 0530 hrs in the bowels of the Bedfordshire Force HQ.

Operational anti-terrorist Commander Alan Golightly has finished briefing his officers about the imminent dawn raid on a bomb-making factory in a house in Luton.

“OK chaps just one last thing. Better phone our suspects as required by our new multi-faith procedures.”

He switches to loudspeaker mode so the assembly can here the two-way conversation.

Phone rings……

“Hello, 217217, Abdul speaking what you want”

“Hello Mr. (*******) Bedfordshire Police calling. Just to let you know we have traced a bomb making cell to your home and we plan to raid your premises in the next 30mins.”

“No, no, you cannot do that. Special day for prayer. Holy day for us. Come when prayer is finished.”

“Yes, Mr. (*******), we understand perfectly. What time will you finish the prayer?”

(Noise of people running down stairs in the background, doors slamming)

“About three weeks time say 10 o’clock August 21st?”

Golightly asks assistant to check diary.

“Yes that OK with us, see you then, we will ring to confirm nearer the time.

(Noise of car engine fading into distance)

“Hello Mr (*******), Mr. (*******) are you there? Hello………………………..”

It's only a matter of time until another terrorist attack occurs, and when it does these guidelines will only be as valuable as the paper on which they are printed. ;)
