During an interview in Manchester area Rusholme — the largest Libyan community in Europe — with Channel 4, a muslim woman wore a burka with weapons spelling out ‘LOVE’.
Considering the attacks that just occurred, many people found this to be insensitive and criticized the woman.
Can you blame them?
It seems she is blatantly mocking the ‘infidels’ with her wardrobe.
Journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy, if they sent a non-Muslim journalist there they would have probably been attacked, addressed the woman known as “Sid” and this is what she said:
In it, Sid said she was ‘devastated’ by the news and urged people to ‘stand together’.
She said: ‘I don’t need to prove anything. I’m a good Muslim, I know I’m a good Muslim, my friends, everyone I interact with, they know I’m a good Muslim.
‘I’m not here to prove anything, but I’m here to say that we need to stand together, stand united, and help fight this. As Manchester, we are standing together.
‘I was at the vigil yesterday, fantastic crowd. We were there together to support each other and that is what we are here for. We will tackle it together.’
But here words fell short with viewers.
Some viewers criticised Sid over her decision to wear a burka printed with a pistol, grenade, knife and machine gun spelling the word ‘love’.
One wrote: ‘Channel 4 news contributor in full hijab, top to toe with comedy glasses, images of knife & hand grenade emblazoned across the front! Ffs.’
Another Twitter user said: ‘Channel 4 actually broadcast this. Nothing says love like a hand grenade & flick-knife.’
Due to the outrage, Channel 4 removed the online version of the interview.
What do you think America, was “Sid” mocking the British people with her burka?
