Too bad that his left-wing policies have only served to validate the negative stereotypes about Muslims in indirect ways.

I quote: "Khan claimed to have received death threats for voting in favour of the Same-Sex Marriage Bill. There was a fatwa put out against him; he had been given police advice on protection."

He's saying that the reaction from some Muslims to Khan's progressive views have been threats of violence, and those threats reinforce negative stereotypes about Muslims.

Thin end of the wedge?

The 2011 UK Census recorded their Muslim population as 2,706,066, or 4.5% of the total population. Next step? A Muslim UK prime minister within the next decade. Between 2001 and 2009 the UK Muslim population increased roughly 10 times faster than the rest of society.

In March 2015 the prison population of England and Wales was recorded as 14% Muslim, despite them only being 4.5% of the overall population.

It isn't just Christians who ignore key points of their holy book.

Lets hope so Thump lets hope so. I just worry about how the far right is gonna react to this, I'm really trying to overcome inbuilt prejudices but its quite hard, not nice for folks to hear but I've got to be honest.

Nope, not a fallacy of any sort. It's a statement of fact; read it as you please. Or are you disputing my figures?
