Will be interesting to see what the reasons are. Jhangir Akhtar and Shaukat Ali, who have been suspended, are the most prominent people in Rotherham's Pakistani community alongside Lord Ahmed and Mahhof Hussain. All 4 have set up groups promoting cohesion (Jhangir Akhtar - Unity Centre, Mahoof Hussain - One Town One Community) and other quangos. They know more people in the Pakistan community between them than anyone else. They deal with community leaders and mosques. They are the link between their community and the police and council.

Considering all this,for them all to say they knew nothing about what was happening and more importantly who was doing it is beyond belief in my opinion.

The police have also announced a full independent enquiry into their role.

Well, this is a start. But a lot of heads should roll.
