£4,000 worth of haircuts

I wrote about this case before and I was disgusted that such an action should be brought on such flimsy grounds although the plaintiff has not won the £34,000 she was seeking she was awarded £4,000 for her “hurt feelings”. 🙄

At the tribunal, Bushra was asked if Sarah had made derogatory remarks about her headscarf.

She replied: ‘She did not. She just asked me if I wore it all the time, or whether I’d take it off.’

Although Bushra is believed to have been acting alone, in the past similar cases have been championed by Muslim traditionalist groups.

In 2006, the Law Lords overturned a court ruling that teenager Shabina Begum’s human rights were violated when she was banned from wearing full Islamic dress at school.

Enlarge Sarah Derosiers

Sarah in her salon – Wedge – located in north London says that the discrimination case against her almost ruined her business

The extremist Muslim group Hizb ut-Tahrir later admitted that it had ‘advised her’.

Meanwhile, Sarah Desrosiers is wondering how to raise the £4,000 she has been ordered to pay Bushra. She has spent her savings on her legal battle and simply has no money left.

‘I am a one-woman band, and am already in debt due to the set-up costs of opening my own salon,’ says Sarah. ‘I dread to think how many haircuts I’m going to have to do to earn the £4,000 I have to pay Bushra. This has, without doubt, been the worst year of my life.’

Of course this is a wonderful example of how minority groups and individuals can use anti-discrimination laws to bully and extort money form people who are just trying to run their business and this is surely a good reason to set the bar for being being “offended ” rather higher that it appears to be at present.

We used to fear the gun and the bomb as the main weapons of the Islamist but clearly the leftist inspired lawyer is just as effective as Chapati flour and Peroxide when it comes to ruining peoples lives.

Until next time Comrades
