Hamza Tzortzis’ message to “aspiring men” #ManUpUK

    Hamza Tzortzis advises British men, of all faiths and none, to revive the universal principle of chivalry by protecting vulnerable women from verbal and physical abuse.

    Dear aspiring men,

    Whoever you are, wherever you are, and whatever you believe in, it is time we used that one gender difference that has not yet been disputed amongst our “feminist” and “liberal” sisters – your strength and physical appearance.

    It has come to my attention that women in the UK are feeling less safe.

    Here is one way of trying to solve this endemic problem. The next time you witness any form of verbal or physical abuse in public, stand up and put that coward to shame!

    Here’s an example of what you can do or say:

    “Excuse me sir… I have a zero tolerance policy towards any form of abuse against vulnerable people. Please stop what you are doing or I will use every lawful means necessary to put a stop to it.”

    If he continues, just yell, “Coward! Coward! Bully! Bully!”

    If he stops, give him and his victim some friendly advice.

    If he continues his aggression towards you, then use every lawful means to cease his aggression or the perceived threat you are facing. This can include a left hook or a devastating uppercut, and you can also carry out a citizen’s arrest. Read what is lawful here: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/.

    If he persists in further aggression or violence towards the vulnerable person, then the above applies within a lawful context.

    Morality is on your side, the law is on your side, and more importantly – God is on your side!

    Protect our women, by being men – real men!

    If you “man up”, then you will help revive a long lost universal tradition of chivalry and protecting women.

    Here are some more helpful tips. When travelling at night or during the day, try sitting or standing close to areas where you may think there are vulnerable people. This will allow you to guard that area until you have to move on towards the rest of your journey.

    Let me explain this with a practical real life example. Read this sad story of a Muslim woman who was harassed on a bus in Leicester: https://5pillarsuk.com/2015/03/05/muslim-woman-tells-her-story-of-islamophobic-and-racial-abuse-on-bus/.

    Now if you were on that bus, this is what you could have done:

    1. You could have yelled while approaching the bully, “Hey, didn’t you know this bus has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to harassing women? Stop it right now or I’ll use all lawful means to stop what you’re doing.”
    2. If he stopped, you could have given him some warm and compassionate advice.
    3. If he continued, you could have told the lady to sit elsewhere and you’d sit nearby.
    4. If he followed, then you’d repeat step number 1 until he stopped.
    5. If he still persisted, you’d press the emergency alarm to stop the bus and report the bullying.
    6. If he turned aggressive, then you could use all reasonable and lawful force to cease his activities.

    Find that man in you!

    If you happen to take this advice, do a quick video and post it on social media with the hashtag #ManUpUK.

    May God bless you guys!
