Reading an article in The Muslim News with the headline "No Muslims Knighted in New Years Honours".
The article starts by saying
"A total of 19 Muslims (4 OBE's, 14 MBE's and one overseas MBE) have been included the New Years Honours List."
This is good news, right? No because:
"Notably no member of the Muslim community was knighted or awarded a CBE.
However five members of the Jewish community are to receive Knighthood"
The article continues by listing exactly how many Jews, Hindus and Sikhs (what, no Buddhists!) got which Honours.
I'm not sure why an article, which should be about celebrating the achievements of our brothers and sisters, has to have such undertones of victims of Zionist plot/Islamophobia to it.
Anyway, I've decided that Ayesha Qureshi MBE is the person I'd most like to go clothes shopping with. She always looks so well turned out.
