Video footage has emerged of a drunk man who allegedly called three Muslim women “f**king P*kis” in Hull city centre. The man who appears to be drunk is accompanied by his wife who tries to defuse the situation.
One of the victims wrote on Facebook: “Me and my two sisters were walking with my nine-year-old nephew yesterday in Hull city centre at around 3.30pm when a drunken man gave us a dirty look and called us a f*cking P*kis in front of every one!
“None of the bystanders did anything. This guy was pushing us and coming at us to hit us! His wife apologised and tried to stop this. First a security guard stayed back and watched and then later another came trying to calm the man but failed escort him out! This happened for around three minutes before we started filming.”
Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.
5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.
This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.
Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).
You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?
