Salon Owner Receives Backlash After Banning Muslims

Following the deadly Paris terror attack, many people began to feel even more vigilant about national security.

April Major owns a beauty parlor in England called Blinks of Bicester, and she worried for her safety. So, she decided to ban all Muslims from her salon immediately. Yet, even as a private business owner, she no longer has a say in how she decides to run her business. She should have the right to refuse service to anyone she wants.

Yet, when Muslims and their sympathizers found out, the authorities came into play. The 43-year-old took to Facebook to announce her stance. She stated that she’s putting her country first when it comes to who walks in her front door.

She wrote, ”Time to put my country first. Blinks of Bicester are no longer taking bookings from anyone from the Islamic faith whether you are UK granted with passport or not.” She was soon called a racist. Krystal said it's her shop, and she can say and choose what she wants. Unfortunately, she no longer has that freedom in the UK.

She was soon arrested for her post. A police spokeswoman announced April’s arrest citing a violation of their Public Order Act in denying service to someone on the basis of their religion. “We have arrested a 43-year-old woman in Bicester today after a number of complaints about a racially abusive post on social media. The woman was arrested under section 19 of the Public Order Act which relates to the display of written material which is threatening, abusive or insulting with the intention of stirring up racial hatred, and for producing malicious communications."
