Muslim while flying

Standard

I am12439144_168916830139111_736314021671089004_n very upset today !!!!!Watch my video

All the things I was brought up to believe in , freedom, democracy, Cohesion, Liberty, equality!!!

Was all stripped from me today😔 !!!

Warning for you all, today 5/FEB/2016 8.25am Flight TOM389 my wife and me boarded a flight to Morocco and just before it was going to take off we were told to get of the airplane because I was Muslim & could be a safety hazard !!!

Because my wife was wearing a hijab and me having a beard ! I thought the beard was in fashion 😎.
But seriously it was very shocking , embarrassing and disturbing to be honest especially for my wife who is nearly 6 month pregnant 😔.

They had removed us because we look like Muslims then they will have to remove me every time & I will just go to Butlins 😂. But seriously I am very proud to be a British Muslim, I was born here all my childhood friends are English , my children are born here , I pay my taxes , give jobs to local people ,support local charities , run youth projects to help kids in the community, support local football teams , feed the homeless in my community every week, went to help my neighbours in Cumbria with the floods , consider everyone as a friend a human being a neighbour regardless of colour or religion to be nice and polite.

But today I suffered the worst RACISM of my life being hurled of a plane with my pregnant wife for being a ASAIN MUSLIM ,I never thought I would see the day that the British government would become so Racist and make me a British born person ,brought up to believe in all things British, then just strip me of all those values I had been brought up with all my life !

I don’t blame the British people that includes my wife , my mum ,dad, my kids , all great people just getting on with it , but the government is taking Briton into dark ages and depths I fear for the British people & way of life that I grew up with 😢 !
England went to war with Germany to free people of the oppression & the terrible crimes hitler was causing to the world and the Jews, men & woman lost their lives to promote freedom, equality , Liberty And now we have the Hitler of our time David Cameron who as just replaced the Jews with Muslims ! Those service men & women must be turning in their graves 😔!!

So please be careful about booking or book flexi tickets that way you are covered as @thomsonholidays airline will not refund my flights !

I was not going to post this but I really am upset and I don’t wish this upon any of you or anyone I fear this type of treatment will become more frequent.
I only pray that the British people talk some sense into the Government which I do not believe is representing the view of the British Public !

I’m an alien; I’m a Muslim in France

Standard

Bonjour, aslamailakun ca va? ka fa hal? Both greetings are the same, hello, how are you? In France, you can often hear a mixture of French and Arabic being spoken.

Are the French islamphobic? Do they fear Muslims? Do they welcome Muslim or ethnic minorities? I cannot answer this question.

France has one of the largest Muslim populations in Western Europe 5- 6 million (8-9%), yet you will struggle to see many Muslim people in senior management positions. Muslims from all over Africa especially Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria come to France with the hope of making a better life for themselves.  I personally did not experience any form of Islamaphobia from French people during my weekend in Paris. But, then I do not wear a hijab and have an English accent. However, the story is different for some Muslims living in France and the subject of racism is a taboo subject.

In London, you can see Muslim women roaming the streets head to toe in black with only their eyes showing. In Paris, I didn’t see one women with an abaya in all the different neighbourhoods I explored. I spotted a few women wearing the hijab and Muslim men wearing traditional attire from their home countries. I am not saying I want to see women wear the niqab or that I support it. However, I am a firm believer that a woman and a man should be able to wear what they want to.What is it about the hijab and niqab that scares some people? I admit speaking to someone whose face I cannot see is NOT a comfortable experience. However, seriously it is not hard to converse with someone who covers his or her head. What is so scary about that? Please tell me as I am struggling to figure it out. Is the hijab such a sore sight and who are we to tell people what to wear? What happened to freedom of expression or the freedom to wear what you want?

In France on January 25 it was announced that the parliamentary committee, having concluded its study, would recommend that a ban on veils covering the face in public locations such as hospitals and schools be enacted, but not in private buildings or on the street. On 22 June 2009, at the Congrès de Versailles, President Nicolas Sarkozy declared that the Islamic burqa is not welcome in France, claiming that the full-length, body-covering gown was a symbol of subservience that suppresses women’s identities and turns them into “prisoners behind a screen.” A parliamentary commission of thirty-two deputies and led by André Gerin (PCF), was formed to study the possibility of banning the public wearing of the burqa or niqab.[35]

As I enjoyed my weekend in Paris, I spoke to various Muslims from Tunisia, Lebanon, Africa, Algeria Senegal and Ivory Coast and they all have the same story to tell, that in France Muslims are feared and the hijab is not allowed in public places.  . In France, the French people will not admit they are racist or do not like Muslims or minorities. However, realistically, who is going to openly admit that they do not like a certain set of people. This is a view shared by the people I encountered and other Muslim or minorities in France may have a different tale to tell.

Islam, niqab, hijab

The problem in France is that it asks children who are born here and grow up here to eat French, sleep French, but they still don’t accept me as French,” said Bigaderne, the son of Moroccan and Algerian immigrants.

“A real Frenchman is white,” he explained, “not black or Arab.”

It saddens me that in 2012 we still discriminate against minorities and cannot fully accept other faiths and people and have to pose restrictions on people and what they can or can’t wear. I hope with the new French President Hollande things for Muslims in France will get better.
