BBC recently interviewed Muslim activist and student Ruqaiya Haris, when a man called “Paul” approached her and said, “There’s no Sharia law here.”
BBC reporter Catrin Nye and Ruqaiya Haris immediately attacked the man for the comment he freely made in a public street.
“Do you wanna talk about Shariah law, you wanna talk about Shariah law to me?” Ms. Haris shouted as she stood over him.
“I wasn’t talking to you,” Paul said, trying to get out of the situation he unwittingly had gotten himself into. Paul was now surrounded by cameras from one of the world’s biggest broadcasters while a Muslim women and a BBC reporter screamed at him.
He tried to remain calm and said, “We’re losing our right to freedom of expression”.
“Why’s that?” asks Ms. Nye, right after screaming at him for the comment he previously made.
“We’re being told to be politically correct when we don’t want to be politically correct,” Paul calmly states.
BBC then released the edited video and headlined it: “BBC Islamophobia discussion interrupted by Islamophobia”.
Paul never said anything against Muslims, yet the fact that BBC claims the man was “Islamophobic”, leads readers to believe that whoever opposes Sharia law, is Islamophobic.
According to the Express newspaper, Ms. Haris said, “I receive abuse online pretty much every day regardless of what I say, insulting my hijab or throwing out stereotypes and insults”.
Yet, Ms. Haris’s Twitter feed is full of ant-Western and anti-White sentiment. She blames white people for the ills of the world, while at the same time tells people that not all Muslims should be held accountable for the actions of Islamic radicals.
She has also said she has “very little desire to prove my humanity/the humanity of all Muslims to people”.
