Reader’s comment: Who is the Muslim Wilberforce?


In response to Ollie Wright: In the evil slave trade, Africa was guilty too, Royinsouthwest wrote:

Who is the Muslim equivalent of Wilberforce? Which African or Asian country has fought a civil war to free slaves?

Having asked those questions I should add that I agree with Colonel Mustard [another TCW commenter] that British involvement, notwithstanding our later efforts to abolish the slave trade not only in the British Empire but elsewhere too, is an appalling stain on this country’s history. It is right, however, that the hypocrisy of those who blame only Europeans and North Americans should be challenged.
