McDonald’s security guard who told Muslim woman to remove hijab is suspended

A security guard who told a Muslim woman to remove her hijab at a McDonald s restaurant in London has been suspended. The employee told her to remove her headscarf and said it s just a matter of taking it off at a branch in Seven Sisters on Friday. The fast-food chain said on Monday that the man, who is employed by a third party, has been suspended pending an investigation into his behaviour.

The young Londoner filmed the security guard telling her to remove her hijab and posted the footage on social media . The clip also showed him blocking her from stepping towards the tills to order her food. She could be heard explaining that she wears her hijab for religious reasons after she rightly refuses to remove it. Eventually, another customer stepped in and told the employee he could not stop her from entering the restaurant.

A McDonald’s employee asked a Muslim women to remove her headscarf (@south_sab)

The Muslim woman told him: It s not just a matter of taking it off . I wear it for religious reasons and I m not ashamed of it . And I will stand in line and I will get the food that I want because this isn t OK.

I go to all the shops and any restaurant I want and in my hijab and I buy the food I want to buy and then I come here . And I literally live down this street from here.

This is actually like a hate crime, this is a hate crime.

The customer who stepped in to help then said: You can t stop her coming into here because she s wearing a headscarf. The woman replied: I m sorry I just want to know who is implementing this policy because this is f****** ridiculous. The footage ended with the Muslim woman leaving the restaurant and telling staff: I don t want anything anymore.

It was posted on Twitter by a woman named Sabrina, who said the footage was recorded by her friend. After the footage emerged online, McDonald s apologised. A McDonald s spokesman added today: We are deeply sorry that this happened, and are taking the matter very seriously, addressing the situation with both the restaurant and security firm involved.

As a business operating in diverse communities across the country, we want to make it absolutely clear that we welcome people of all faiths and do not have any policy which restricts or prevents anyone wearing a hijab, or any other religious attire, in our restaurants.

Police have condemned a bomb alert near a cenotaph in Omagh as a “sickening attempt to create fear” on Remembrance Sunday. A suspicious object was discovered on Sunday morning in the Drumragh Avenue area of Omagh and officers are at the scene.

Chief Inspector Graham Dodds said at this stage he is unable to say if or how the Remembrance event at the Cenotaph will be affected. The Remembrance Day wreath laying ceremony has been postponed. Cordons remain in place at Drumragh Avenue, Mountjoy Road, Sedan Avenue, George Street and High Street.

He said: Police would like to thank members of the public for their patience whilst we continue to work at the scene . The safety of the community is of paramount importance and we will not take any risks.

“I am aware many people are due to attend today s event at the Cenotaph however at this stage I am unable to say if or how the occasion will be affected.

” I would like to reassure the public that we are working hard to make the area safe and that we will continue to provide updates on any impact to today s event.

“This is a sickening attempt by cowards to create fear and disruption on a day when many gather to pay their respects to the brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice and must be unreservedly condemned. The alert is ongoing and police are continuing to work with the Royal British Legion and local elected representatives regarding the Remembrance event. West Tyrone DUP MLA Tom Buchanan said he was disgusted at the alert which has disrupted the annual Remembrance Sunday commemoration.

Mr Buchanan said: Remembrance Sunday is a day when we pause to commemorate all those from every background who paid the supreme sacrifice . It is disgusting that anyone would target a war memorial at any time, but on Remembrance Sunday it is an act of particular hatred.

“Omagh has a long association of service within our Armed Forces and those who served came from all backgrounds and traditions . The cowardice of those who left this device stands in stark contrast to the bravery of those who are commemorated today.

“Whilst the annual Remembrance Service has been able to continue in Omagh Academy, there has been an impact on the events which would normally take place . It is right that the security forces take all the necessary precautions and I would pay tribute to their efforts in keeping people safe. Sinn Fein MLA Catherine Kelly said those behind the alert had shown “complete disregard” for all people in the community.

She said: “The ongoing security alert in the Drumragh Avenue area has caused significant disruption to local residents and to Remembrance Day commemorations.

Everyone has a right to remember their dead with dignity and respect and those responsible for this security alert have shown complete disregard for all the people of this community.

The alert has seen the closure of Drumragh Avenue, Mountjoy Road, Sedan Avenue, George Street and High Street.

“If this does prove to be a viable device those responsible must be condemned in the strongest possible terms.”

Alliance West Tyrone representative Stephen Donnelly said urged anyone with information to contact police immediately. He said: This is a disgusting move by people who represent nobody, intended to cause as much disruption as possible for those attending the parade.

Those behind this have no regard for the lives of others in the community people are sick of this sort of behaviour and have voiced their opposition to it in the past . There can be absolutely no justification for it and I would appeal for it to stop.

My thanks go to the police and security services for their work in keeping local residents safe . If anyone has any information on this incident, I urge them to contact police immediately.
