I have been living in Bradford for some time now. Ofcourse , being the first visit outside india i was excited to see the 'vilayat' land. But bradford is a different kind of place. Out of 100 people u see , 90 are not the native british. Due to large scale immigration from asia (mainly from pakistan and pakistan occupied kashmir) the locals have left the city and have settled in the country side. Infact bradford is now, one of the most disadvantaged places in the UK. The british are selling their houses in Bradford and moving outside.
The british are one of the most accomodating people i feel. Most of the UK is now a multicultural society and from my experiences , the natives are very courteous and accomodating. However the recent bomb blasts in london seem to have changed that. Every where there are talks of Muslims and The others. The muslims seem to be an isolated community now. Even the common muslim youth does not trust the government. After the bomb blasts , i witnessed several meetings and gatherings outside mosques which i guess were to discuss how the handle the tense situation.
Howver i kind of sympathize with the British. They feel threatened by the sudden change in the social fabric which is fair enough.
