  Then And Now
Then (via The Indian Express):

  
The letters reveal Jinnah saw Churchill as an ally against ''caste Hindus''. The Conservative wartime leader — hostile to the ''liquidation of the British Empire'' — was told by the Muslim League leader on July 6, 1946, that the Cripps Mission had ''shaken the confidence of Muslim Indians and shattered their hopes for an honourable and peaceful settlement''.

Replying to Jinnah on August 5, Churchill ''espoused the right of Moslems and the Depressed Classes to their fair share of life and power. I feel that it is most important that the British Army should not be used to dominate the Moslems, even though the caste Hindus might claim numerical majority in a constituent assembly''.

Now (via The Telegraph UK):

Forty per cent of the British Muslims surveyed said they backed introducing sharia in parts of Britain, while 41 per cent opposed it. Twenty per cent felt sympathy with the July 7 bombers' motives, and 75 per cent did not. One per cent felt the attacks were "right".
  
Last night, Sadiq Khan, the Labour MP involved with the official task force set up after the July attacks, said the findings were "alarming". He added: "Vast numbers of Muslims feel disengaged and alienated from mainstream British society." Sir Iqbal Sacranie, the secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said: "This poll confirms the widespread opposition among British Muslims to the so-called war on terror."  

The most startling finding is the high level of support for applying sharia law in "predominantly Muslim" areas of Britain.
  

Now again (via The Telegraph UK):  

"Rather, concentrate Muslim presence in a particular area until you are a majority in that area, so that the institutions of the local community come to reflect Islamic structures. The education system will be Islamic, the shops will serve only halal food, there will be no advertisements showing naked or semi-naked women, and so on."    

That plan, says Dr Sookhdeo, is being followed in Britain. "That is why you are seeing areas which are now almost totally Muslim. The next step will be pushing the Government to recognise sharia law for Muslim communities - which will be backed up by the claim that it is "racist" or "Islamophobic" or "violating the rights of Muslims" to deny them sharia law.    

"There's already a Sharia Law Council for the UK. The Government has already started making concessions: it has changed the law so that there are sharia-compliant mortgages and sharia pensions.    

"Some Muslims are now pressing to be allowed four wives: they say it is part of their religion. They claim that not being allowed four wives is a denial of their religious liberty. There are Muslim men in Britain who marry and divorce three women, then marry a fourth time - and stay married, in sharia law, to all four.
  

Do we hear a Dead Old White Guy turning in his grave?

Cynical Nerd,

Churchill's Britain deserves the fate of multiculturalism given the divide and rule policies that they had introduced in pre-partition India, pre-partition Cyprus, colonial Malaya, colonial Fiji, colonial Guyana and Zimbabwe. Let them get a taste of their own medicine. I have no sympathy for the Brits what so ever.

May the Shari'ah supersede Common Law in those enclaves in Britain where the Muslims predominate! If India could have Muslim personal law, so could Britain.

Best regards
 
Jaffna: Right on.

In addition, even post-independence they openly allowed expatriate Kashmiri/Mirpuri/Khalistani groups to fund terrorist activities inside India. It is only after 9.11 and 7.7. that they started cracking down. Perhaps, as you said it is too late now.

best,
 
Londonistan is an approaching reality. Churchill was an extreme bigot. He called Indians "those beastly people and their beastly religion".
