Rod Liddle continues to use his Sunday Times column to illustrate his descent into the depths of anti Muslim racism. This week he writes about Shambo the holy bullock which was worshipped by monks of the Skanda Vale Community and which tested positive to a tuberculin skin test and was subsequently put down.
With officials of the Welsh Assembly involved in the decision, Liddle writes: “But I wonder too if the members of the assembly would have dared to make their decision if it were Muslims rather than Hindus who chose to revere cattle? And what would have happened if they did? By now there would be priests set alight from Jakarta to Rabat, effigies burnt, fatwas issued. Cardiff airport would be missing an international departure gate.”
