SOME Pakistani men see white women as “fair game”, a cabinet minister claimed last night.
Dewsbury-born Baroness Sayeeda Warsi made the allegation yesterday following the conviction of nine Muslim men from Rochdale of plying girls as young as 13 with drink and drugs so they could “pass them around” for sex.
Conservative chairman Baroness Warsi said: “There is a small minority of Pakistani men who believe that white girls are fair game.
“And we have to be prepared to say that. You can only start solving a problem if you acknowledge it first.
“This small minority who see women as second-class citizens, and white women probably as third-class citizens, are to be spoken out against.
“In mosque after mosque, this should be raised as an issue so that anybody remotely involved should start to feel that the community is turning on them.
“Communities have a responsibility to stand up and say: ‘This is wrong, this will not be tolerated’.”
Baroness Warsi added: “Cultural sensitivity should never be a bar to applying the law.”
