First of all, where is the billions of dollars for medical care expenses coming from to treat all these children for their entire lives? Do the parents pay? Who could afford to pay 1/4 million $ per child, per year? That's astronomical! Second of all, why do the immigrants leave their homelands if they want to bring all these ancient customs with them which in effect, destroyed their homelands to begin with and caused them to flee for a better life in the UK? They are now in essence destroying the country they have immigrated/fled to. Thirdly, they are interbreeding themselves into extinction! The children with disabilities can't have children! If they are as proud of their culture/national identity as they say they are, why would they want their culture to die out from interbreeding? At this rate, in 50-100 years there will be hardly any of them left! Doesn't that make them sad? They are making themselves extinct but say they are too proud of their culture and traditions to stop interbreeding. That doesn't make sense. If you are proud of your culture you would want it to grow, not shrink and die out. This was a very bizarre documentary for me to watch. I feel so sorry for the young ones suffering agonising pain and horrible lives for the sins of their parents. It couldn't be more cruel. Who would intentionally bring a child into the world to suffer like that? It's not holy, in fact this has nothing to do with God at all, this is humans being completely evil and causing harm intentionally!

We must take in some good things from other religions to make it even better, I would advice Muslims to keep a record of family members and their genealogy like the Gotra system in Sanatana Dharma. It really helps in preventing these incidents.

In India I’m pretty sure they have a system in place where you cannot marry in your bloodline otherwise it’s illegal and I think in Hinduism it’s restricted anyway. Why don’t more Asian countries use their brains and be more like India where they care about their future generations by banning cousin marriages!
Sapphire Xo (1 day ago)
Honestly I think it’s disgusting that they are doing this, my cousins are literally like my brothers and sisters and I don’t understand how someone can look at their relatives in that way. Although they say “it’s a tradition”, I still think it is ridiculous and when you can clearly see that the only reason why ur child’s life has been dramatically changed and they are limited to doing things that a normal child would be able to do and they still continue this! Why? Why would someone continue this when they know it’s harming their kids. But they don’t want to admit that this tradition is wrong and shouldn’t be happening! Selfish people!

What complete ignorance. I think they knew the consequences and continued to inbreed.These people have delibratly ruined the lives of others cousing life long misery and disabilities.

16:22 very stupid answer from that man. Althoug his children now look healthy at a young ago, it isn sure that cousin marriage disn t let any impact. Kidney problema in adulthood, Infertility etc... arent visible in the beginning. My husband is pakistani, born put of a cousin marriage. Has fertility struggle, and we wave to undergo ICSI, I also had twice a miscarriage. So instead of marying between cousins, they should think about the following generation, and tje pain it can cause

These people live in the age of stone age , increasing the population where ever they go . Their sick mentality will never change . If there is no control on population very soon they will be all over everywhere .Like really 5 children , 6 children how do they manage the expenses ? Actually some places in UK are unliveable because of communities like this its dirty , filthy , crime rate is high .The rate at which muslims are having kids in UK they will definitely out beat christians .Haven't seen many christians family having 5, 6 , 7 kids

The cultures in which it is still accepted (marrying first cousins) and practiced have the overwhelmingly majority of genetic defects due to inbreeding. The west does NOT have this issue and learned long ago that the practice produces undesirable effects on future generations. This is FACT.. People with heavy Ashkenazi Jew genetics also suffer high incidents of genetic disorders to this very day. The Arab world is full of the same issues and highlights reasons for Terrorism and Flawed thought processes as anger issues and mental instability are heavily researched and documented results of inbreeding.

It does not matter what religion one practice ...so be cool...and about your question well there is no body which keeps names of everyone who practice Hinduism...and after you convert nothing will change.....so be cool...

The UK needs to tell them if you are married to your cousin and the children are born with problems then no treatment on NHS you brought on yourself .Also make it illegal and deportation for whole family ,see how that goes down soon would stop this 7th century practice.the imams need to be educated a to tell them in mosques not to do it .

The damage done to children by cousin marriages is nothing to do with the marriag is the face the mother was pulling at the time of birth and maybe there was a western wind as well. Perhaps mum farted when baby popped out too.

Hinduism is best and established this in ancient times only....Everything is based on science...People will say cow urine etc...People in rural India does that and slowly its been available in stores,filtered and well packaged by patanjali and its nothing to be ashamed of...It can cure lot of disease,many foreigners come to India because Indian medical system is very effective and drink cow urine....search about that on web..... Caste system is abolished in India and if someone is following,its a crime....We are Hindus and we are proud of our way of religion....we think everything logically and can question why,not like blindly follow something and follow incest like Islam....Thank god I'm a hindu.....Lot of people embracing Hindusim around the world is because of its logical ways and people live freely...Now don't come up with ancient practices in Hinduism and those all are gone long time back and we live peacefully,,even with muslim population..Muslims in India has to abide the law first and than religion..That's because we are more than 80% of Hindus making the rules and taking India developed and advanced day by day...Muslims should stop follow their religion blindly and start thinking logically and in science or else cry and make their life a shithole...

So they keep coming to the country because they know they can get free healthcare while still practicing their traditions....which is basically torturing their kids by intermarrying knowing the consequences. This is sick.

PAKISTAN THE CESS POOL OF THE WORLD
George Brown (14 days ago)
Muslims marry first cousins -its like incest - on the other hand inbreeding, most common are rare recessive genetic disorders occur amongst especially muslim Pakistani descent and other muslims who practice first or second cousins. In areas of England where Pakistani descent people live, NHS is overwhelmed with rare recessive genetic disorders cases and is costing NHS from 30-75,000 pounds per youngest. Now its at a stage resources are being diverted from seniors to those suffering first cousin marriages output recessive genetic disorders. Every thing Islamic, First cousin marriages , Sharia or Halal animal slaughter practices are have a ill effect in the UK.
