This chapter discusses why young British-born Pakistani Muslim men are increasingly associated with crime and disorder today, paying close attention to some of the early incidents that led to these people being portrayed as more criminal. Given that very little previous research has analysed criminological theories explaining offending by British Pakistani Muslim men, this chapter subsequently examines whether young British Pakistani Muslim men who offend do so for the same reasons as young people who offend in general or whether there are other possible explanations for their offending such as religious or cultural elements. The chapter sets out the tone for the study by discussing how little is known as to why young British Pakistani Muslim men offend.

Keywords:   British-born Muslim men, crime, disorder, criminological theories, religious elements, cultural elements
