Color me skeptical, but if the minister calling for an "open debate" on rampant child sexual exploitation does not include the motive and sanction of such sex slavery under Islam, I have little faith.
We know that law enforcement ignored the plaintive pleas of these non-muslim schoolgirls who had been forced into prostitution. What other government bodies, organisations, or authorities were informed as to what was happening to the girls and ignored their cries for fear of insulting Islam?
The scores of men were Muslim, the teens and tweens sexually trafficked were non-Muslim. It is not about race or "white girls." Islam is not a race, it's an ideology. Identifying the men as "Asian" (an insult to actual Asian people) or Pakistani (no Pakistani Christian men were involved) is continuing the cover-up of the Islamic practice of subjugation, oppression and persecution of non-Muslims under the sharia that sanctions such behavior.

"Britain needs an open debate about 'issues around culture' that may explain why men from Pakistani backgrounds are over-represented among offenders prosecuted for grooming white girls for sex, a Government minister has said...
... Mr Loughton told a conference on child sexual exploitation, reported by The Times, that the Rochdale case raised 'troubling questions' about the attitude of the men towards white girls.
He said that nothing was gained by 'shying away from taking this issue and debating it head on' and warned that the sexual exploitation of children in Britain had been swept under the carpet 'like a guilty secret' for too long.
'As a result,' he added, 'there was a real and tragic failure to grasp the scale of the problem with awful consequences for hundreds, if not thousands, of children and young people.'
Mr Loughton said the issue was now at the very top of the Government's agenda.
I am glad of it, but refusal to address the root cause is an exercise in futility.
