Personally, I wouldn’t want to see anyone in a ‘mankini’, after seeing one you want to gauge your own eyes out, but that’s just me.
I am, (as well as a host of others) offended by Islam every day of the week, are these Muslims trying to set a precedent on how the civil society is to behave when offended? I wholeheartedly applaud these two men’s efforts in trying to help dogs.
Two brothers in law who went on a sponsored walk wearing comedy mankinis had to be picked up by police – after they were pelted with stones and eggs by residents who told them ‘this is a Muslim area’ and demanded they leave.
Steven Ellis, 41, and Jason Hendry, 22, wanted to walk eight miles from Solihull to Birmingham city centre wearing the outfit featured in 2006 film Borat to raise money for Birmingham Dogs’ Home.
But they ended up being escorted by officers after they were attacked as they passed through the Sparkbrook area of the city, claiming police said they had offended local Muslims during Ramadan.
