This is what happens to a society highly saturated with enforced political correctness coupled with a disconnect with one’s own cultural values and identity.
NHS worker who ‘bullied’ Muslim by praying for her
Christian health worker Victoria Wasteney is taking legal action against the NHS after she was accused of bullying a Muslim colleague
A Christian health worker has begun a legal challenge after being disciplined by the NHS for praying with a Muslim colleague.
In addition, senior managers told Miss Wasteney that it was inappropriate to invite the woman to a community sports day organised by her church.
The complaints led to Miss Wasteney being suspended on full pay for nine months.
Miss Wasteney said she was challenging her employers in court because political correctness in the NHS was stifling ordinary conversations about faith.
“I believe in tolerance for everyone and that is why I am challenging what has happened to me,” she added.
The young Muslim woman was appointed as a newly qualified occupational therapist in a team of 30 managed by Miss Wasteney at East London NHS Foundation Trust.
“One of the earliest conversations I can recall was one in which she said she had just moved to London. She felt that God had a real plan and a purpose for her,” said Miss Wasteney, from Essex. Miss Wasteney told her colleague that she went to church, but was “very cautious because our environment is such that these things can be misconstrued and, with her being from a different faith background, I was mindful of being respectful of that”.
Miss Wasteney said the woman was interested in the anti-human trafficking community work being done by her church.
