Obfuscation Via Euphemism: Report Blasts Gangs of "Asian Men" Responsible for Horrific Sex Crimes in U.K. Town

"Asians"? Oh, you mean blokes from China, Japan and/or Korea?:
The horrifying cost of official failure to confront widespread child sexual exploitation has been revealed in a damning report detailing how abusers exploited 1,400 children from a single town over 16 years. 
Gangs of Asian men groomed, abused and trafficked vulnerable children while police were contemptuous of the victims and the council ignored what was going on, in spite of years of warnings and reports about what was happening. 
Despite what the inquiry head called a “blatant” failure of leadership at the Labour-run council, nobody will be sacked or face inquiries into their inaction. The leader of the council, Roger Stone, quit today because of what he called “historic failings”. He apologised in 2013 for the failure to protect children in the town – and the inquiry said the act of contrition should have been made years earlier. 
The report commissioned by the council, covering 1997 to 2013, detailed cases where children as young as 11 had been raped by a number of different men, abducted, beaten and trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England to continue the abuse. 
Professor Alexis Jay, who wrote the report, said she found “children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone”. 
It said that three reports from 2002 to 2006 highlighted the extent of child exploitation and links to wider criminality but nothing was done, with the findings either suppressed or simply ignored. Police failed to act on the crimes and treated the victims with contempt and deemed that they were “undesirables” not worthy of protection, the inquiry team was told...
How can they hope to confront the exploitation if they're still hiding behind the "Asian men" euphemism? 

Obviously, they can't. And the effort to disguise the provenance of these "Asians" is so revolting that a local Muslim can't help but condemn it:
Professor Alexis Jay's report, commissioned by Rotherham Borough Council, said:  
"Several councillors interviewed believed that by opening up these issues they could be 'giving oxygen' to racist perspectives that might in turn attract extremist political groups and threaten community cohesion." 
This has left the leader of a Muslim organisation in Rotherham furious. 
"In the name of what community cohesion and political correctness? Not in the name of my community," said Muhbeen Hussain, founder of British Muslim Youth. 
"I'm truly disgusted to see such a report in my home town of Rotherham. 
"The fact these guys were predominantly Pakistani heritage men should not be a reason for providing a cloak of invisibility."
Asia is a huge continent, and euphemizing "Pakistani" as "Asian" can cover a multitude of sins. There is no way, however, that the craven Rotherhamers would ever deploy the "A" word had these gangs been comprised of sexual predators whose last names were/are Lee and Kim.
