Are Muslim enclaves no-go areas, forcing other people out, asks historian

“The majority of Muslims do not kill women for running away from brutal husbands and forced marriages, nor are they terrorists, yet moderate Muslims nevertheless appear to be creating divisive enclaves within this country as a result of routine Muslim religiosity and lifestyle….  The overall picture is of cumulative assertiveness, but there is evidence too of proselytising aggressiveness … the Muslim group Tablighi Jamaat is proposing to build the largest mosque in Europe, for 12,000 worshippers at a time, close to the London Olympic site. The organisers aim to convert Britain to Islam.”
