A Conservative Party candidate for the 2018 local elections has been suspended pending investigation after old tweets emerged where she compared Islam to Nazism. Karen Sunderland, a candidate for Crofton Park in Lewisham, London, called Islam “the new Nazism” in a tweet last December, and has also been called out for a number of other ‘Islamophobic’ statements.
She sent a tweet in October mocking hijabs, and the following month said she was confused why Muslims would choose to live in the West.

The thing is, religion undermines the hard fought for values and tolerances of progressed countries… suppresses free speech and is auto immune from criticism. This is toxic and where the hostility comes from. Religion is totalitarian. Islam has become the new Nazism.” In a reply to LBC in November she wrote: “Parents will simply bang on about Islam and their rights blah blah blah. It confuses me so much why people with these views live in the West.” And her tweet about the hijab from October read: “Such a lame attempt you made to justify hijabs. Self indulgent to think anyone would give a toot that you showed your hair.”

  1. Very interesting and touching question such as;
    Why Muslims would choose to live in the West.====

    Muslim or Ahmadiyya need to respond this question honestly. Not Ahmadiyya only other Muslim refugee who live in the West.

    All love ❤️

    • Let us see some reasons: NATO is bombing countries outside of its membership, not inside. Consequently countries other than NATO are destabalized. And, yes, generally speaking education functions better in the West, job opportunities are there, human rights (at home) are observed to some degree, religious freedom is functioning. Everyone is able to practice his / her religion. Yes, we appreciate the good things. It does not mean that we should ignore what is not quite right. Appreciate what is right and, together with the local population, improve what can still be improved.
