UK activist suspended from Twitter for citing grooming rape stats
British anti-immigration activist Tommy Robinson has been suspended from Twitter for quoting research which found that nearly 90 percent of convicted grooming gang members in the UK are Muslim.

Robinson was suspended from the social media platform for seven days for stating similar findings to the Quilliam Foundation.
The Foundation is a well-respected think tank, whose founder worked as an adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron on issues concerning Islam.
“Ninety percent of grooming gang convictions are Muslims,” Robinson tweeted on 25 February, somewhat inflating the number identified by Quilliam’s research.
The Foundation discovered that 84 percent of convicted groomers were Muslim in December last year.
Former government adviser Maajid Nawaz intervened on behalf of Robinson, contacting Twitter directly to say that Robinson had stated a fact rather than making a defamatory, hateful, or untrue statement.
These mainly Pakistani gangs targeting white girls are only 7 percent of the UK population, Nawaz added. They are therefore also greatly over-represented in grooming rape gangs.
British police have routinely refused to believe accusations made by young white girls on numerous occasions. “They were threatened with wasting police time, they were told they had consented to sex and, on occasion, they were arrested at the scene of a crime, rather than the perpetrators,” the report by former Victims’ Commissioner Louise Casey revealed in 2015.
Whistleblowers who raised concerns lost their jobs. “I stepped forward on behalf of young people – it cost me my job and my career,” one ex-staff member revealed.
A local police officer gave the main reason for the coverup. “They were running scared of the race issue… This has been a problem with Pakistani men for years and years,” the officer explained. “People were scared of being called racist.”
