Tameside Islamic Police
A Freedom of Information obtained by Salford British National Party Organiser Gary Tumulty has revealed how, Greater Manchester Police Tameside Division, send 44 officers on a 'Islamic awareness course' to be trained to update their knowledge and understand of the Islamic faith and community, A special power point presentation was produced by the local imam, to discuss with the officers, on a whole range of Islamic topics.
The course was designed to deal with the practical and professional concerns that arise when the police deal with the muslim community of Tameside, Manchester, Requested by local officers and authorized by superintendent McKay and Chief Inspector Wrudd, all 44 officers were sent on this course, some of covered topics were ramadan, halal food, headgear such as burkahs, arranged marriages, mosques, muslim houses and jihad. The outcome of the course did discover it would be impossible to definitive guidance on how police deal with the whole community, as each individual will vary in their level of commitment to Islam as in the extent to which their cultural and western values informs them to live and behave.
From the 2001 census Tameside ethnic break down, say's Indians make up the largest population among Asian community, followed by Pakistani who make up the largest Muslim community closely followed by the Bengali people, for the large number of migrants who have entered this country, and been placed in one particular area of Tameside, the Muslim community leaders have announced it was done deliberately to pool for their resources together, for security reasons and to consolidate a sense of belonging, come modern day 2012 the Tameside Muslim Asian community has grown considerably and at a vast rate.
Outlined was the different types of Asians living in Tameside ranging from Pakistani,.Bengali, Indian and how they all spoke of different languages from Urdu to Punjabi and its vitally important to get the correct interpreter for gathering evidence, It was also worth noting how the Pakistani and Bengali community do not integrate, and the Bangladesh community have a class system based on wealth and political influence
It was said Hyde Community Action along with other partners undertook research and interviewees of the Muslim community were asked to express their views and experiences of Greater Manchester Police, amongst the three points one was about concerns that the local officers were racist's due to the lack of experience with the Muslim community and a new policing model needed to be adapted, A major point of Islam being the seconds world biggest religion and also the fastest growing, with two types Sunni and shi'a, Sunni being Tamside's majority.
Aspects of Islamic law Sharia was touched on, Sharia law is only prevalent in muslim countries how ever Muslim's in the UK will look towards it for guidance on specific matters such as divorce and wills. Ramadan and Eid were covered and the way the Muslim celebrate it, along with alcohol, drugs halal food and dogs. Police have been advised by the local Muslim community that male officers must never attend Muslim homes, in fear that the women may be there alone and the male officers must never ask a Muslim lady to remove her head wear as Islam forbids it. Officers must never shake hands with a Muslim but are simply just to say hello.
Arranged marriages and according to Muslim traditional law men can have up to four wife's at any one time, being married to more than one person in the UK is only recognized in England and Wales, and bigamy is an offence under s57 offence against the person act 1961 Muslim can have a 'Nikah' (Islamic Marriage contract) and them that fail to register the marriage are not recognized as married under British Law, but are regarded as unmarried couples only have cohabitants rights.
Mosque time is Friday the most important day between 1 and 2 Jumma, and police are advised never to bail Muslim suspects to this day and time as it goes against their way of culture and faith. In Muslim Houses they adapt a 'no shoe' policy and police must adhere to this policy now its non practical for an officer to remove his operational boots so all lines of inquiry's must be done in the hall way or kitchen, On police search the handling of the Quran must be very careful and where possible avoid handling it or placing on the floor, it is advised that the Muslim is only to handle the holy book, Whilst on police raids the use of a dog may be required the officer has to only use the dog on a need basis and its advised the police dog paws are to be placed in forensic foot coverings
On top of this a short introduction to Jihad and how the holy war and the struggle to improve Muslim society world wide
