    Our entire society is sadly declining and rapidly.. It was once unheard of and unimaginable to think that members our local Muslim community would ever appear in the law courts for such occurrences.. We’ve lost our way somewhere along the line.

    The violence is even affecting the indian households.

      violence has no gender, nationality or racial ethnicity, it is within all of us, we are all prone to be rebels

    Sherene, I respectfully disagree…instances of violence not appearing in law courts doesn’t mean they never occured.
    The only difference today is folks are being more informed or are coming forward to report such acts of violence. I remember as a child growing up in bim, two Muslim brothers fighting with a hoe and a machete.
    Your analogy is taboo.

      Paul I’d be niave to think that they didn’t or don’t have their fair share of disputes or disturbances, whether domestic or otherwise. However what I know as a fact is that they were always a private community who kept and resolved their problems internally amongst themselves. Again I repeat; it was once unheard of, that any conflict amongst the Muslim community in Barbados, would end up in the law courts.

    The Indian households are no different to any households. Violence was in their households for years but because of the secretive manner in how they live in Barbados, it is being hidden.
    There is no relationship between human behaviour and race.

    It has to do with your State of mind.

    Things were happening , it’s just that they were kept hidden .

    Very true Ormand Mayers ” Barbarians are very short of memory, that community has been involved in abusive relationships, other forms of violence, drugs and even murder over the years. Their percentage of the population, like the Caucasians is less than the African therefore the quantity of persons involved in crime will be similar. Their respect for elders to intervene in disputes also reduces the need for state intervention. Unlike us.

    Black man, know yourself. They are no better than us.
