Liberal Democrat religious discrimination
Watford’s Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate, Sal Brinton, sent Javid Suleman (pictured) a greeting card to celebrate Eid.
Mr Suleman is a Christian.
The card was sent purely on the grounds that Mr Suleman has a ‘Muslim-sounding’ name, and therefore was presumed to be a Muslim.
Ergo, as far as the Liberal Democrats are concerned, one’s religion is determined by one’s surname, and one is then appropriately categorised. This is Liberal Democrat campaign strategy – classification according to ethnicity, skin colour, or religion.
It would be interesting to discover by what means and authority this inaccurate data has been collated and stored.
Even more interesting (for Cranmer) is why the Liberal Democrats are sending greeting cards to ethnic minorities in commemoration of the days of religious observance at all.
Will all of Watford’s Christians (or white people with ‘Christian-sounding’ names) be sent a Christmas card?
If not, should not all of Watford’s white-people-with-Christian-sounding-names make a formal complaint about the Liberal Democrats’ discrimination on the grounds of religion?
