The way this article has been manipulated and spun by the BBC is absolutely disgusting...... obscene, even! So the objective of this post is to further expose the BBC's Left-wing bias and their real agenda as the propaganda wing of the Labour Party.
MUSLIM WOMAN WEARING VEIL 'REFUSED BUS RIDE' IN LONDON
Two Muslim women have claimed they were refused a bus ride because one had her face covered by a veil. The students, both 22 and from Slough, Berkshire, boarded a Metroline bus from Russell Square to Paddington, London,but they said when they presented their tickets on Monday, the driver told them they were a "threat" to passengers and ordered them off the bus.
The firm has started an "urgent" investigation. The Muslim Council of Britain said it was "deeply concerned". (Oooh...... deeply concerned!) The pair, who have made a formal complaint to the bus company, have asked the BBC not to reveal their full names. (Oh, really....... why's that, then?)
Yasmin was wearing a hijab and Atoofa was dressed in a niqab - which covers the face. Yasmin said at first she boarded the bus by mistake when it was not in service to ask where it was going, but was told by the driver to get off. "About 10 minutes later... the passengers started getting on. When I went forward to show my ticket he said, 'Get off the bus'. I presumed he was still angry because I got on the bus before.
"He said, 'I am not going to take you on the bus because you two are a threat.'
"I realised it wasn't due to me getting on the bus, this may be a racist attack." (Waaaaaycist, Waaaaaycist...... oh, do fuck off!)
She asked for his contact details but when he refused she began to film him and he covered his face. "I said, 'It's OK for you to cover your face on my recording but it's not OK for my friend to cover her face out of choice?' "There was no point arguing with him, we got off the bus and by then my anger turned into emotion." (That'll be the drink, love!)
However Atoofa, who had her face covered by the veil, said she hoped the driver would be educated about why women wear the traditional Islamic dress, rather than face the sack. "I would like him to understand why we wear it and I think I would like an apology," she added.
"I want him to sit there and talk to me about why he felt the way he felt and maybe to understand where we are coming from." (Why don't you try and understand where he's coming from, dear?!)
A spokesperson from the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said it could not comment on individual cases, but added it was "deeply concerned". (Oh, my.... they're deeply concerned!)
"Such incidents are sadly becoming more common," the spokesperson said. (No shit! I wonder why?)
"They have been fuelled against the climate of increasing anti-Muslim rhetoric and hostility, in particular on the part of sensationalised stories by the media, demonising Muslims in the eyes of the wider public." (If the shoe fits...... )
And now for the truth.....
CLAIM OF 'ISLAMIC VEIL BUS BAN' THROWN OUT
A bus driver accused by two students of banning them because of their Islamic dress has been cleared after CCTV showed he had actually barred them for their abusive behaviour. An investigation by Metroline - which operates the No7 bus - found the driver, who could have faced the sack over the allegation, was justified in not allowing the women on his vehicle. (Ahhh, right..... I see!)
The 22-year-olds, Yasmin and Atoofa, from Slough, told the BBC that they had been refused access to the bus at Russell Square because of their dress. Yasmin was wearing a hijab and her face was uncovered while Atoofa was wearing a niqab, which covers the face.
But the Standard has learned that the students, who asked for their full names not to be revealed, were denied entry "due to abusive behaviour towards bus driver and other passengers". (Nooooo!..... surely not?!!!)
On-board CCTV of the incident, on Monday last week, showed the women banging on the front doors and attempting to board the bus when it had come to the end of its run. They then get on through the rear doors and begin arguing with the driver. They get off and wait for the bus to start its journey back to Paddington - but another exchange follows, and the driver refuses to set off unless they disembark. (Well, I never!!!?)
Metroline said: "We have now reviewed the CCTV and interviewed the bus driver. The circumstances of this incident are not as represented by the bus passengers." (It's not as represented by the BBC either - what a big surprise...... fucking, commie BBC - Labour propaganda whores!!!!!)
So there you have it, folks, for anyone who was still in any doubt, (there can't be that many), if it's the unbiased truth you're looking for...... stay well away from the BBC, Britain's very own Far-Left disinformation service.
