Muslim Man 'Thrown Off National Express Coach After Passengers Complained T

Muslim Man 'Thrown Off National Express Coach After Passengers Complained They Felt Uncomfortable'

A Muslim passenger was thrown off a London-bound National Express coach because other passengers said he made them feel uncomfortable, it has been claimed. 

The man was allegedly asked to disembark the coach after complaints from a female passenger last Thursday. 

National Express categorically denied the man was asked to leave because of his religion, saying he was escorted off the bus after a dispute arose over his luggage.

But University of Bristol student Rebekah Makinde complained to the company on Twitter after witnessing what she believed to be the Islamophobic incident.

Ms Makinde, 21, from London, told the Bristol Post: "As soon as he got on the coach, the women at the front were just silent and staring at him. They were making their feelings very obvious.

"As soon as the man sat down, one of the women went to speak to the driver. Another member of staff then came on and asked the man to get off.

"He didn't protest or anything, he just got off. What disgusted me the most was that someone actually thanked the woman after he left."

She said she questioned the driver over the incident, and was told the man had been asked to leave because he would not put a printer he was carrying in the undercoach storage with the rest of the luggage.

"It's ridiculous," she said. "Everyone had luggage with them on the coach, I had bags and my laptop on my seat next to me and nobody said anything about that. The coach wasn't even that busy and there were plenty of free seats.

"It was only when the woman raised her concerns about the man saying she felt uncomfortable that he was asked to leave.

"I heard the entire exchange between the woman and the driver and I know luggage was not the reason he was asked to leave."

She added: "I understand that drivers want their passengers to feel comfortable. But not if it stems from someone's unfounded and Islamophobic beliefs and at the expense of another paying passenger. I am truly appalled."

Nick McDonald, Bristol, who was travelling to a conference in London, also told the paper that he overheard the group of women saying the man looked 'shifty'.

He said: "I heard the group of women at the front of the coach say he looked 'shifty'.

"She got off the coach to make a complaint and the next thing a man wearing a National Express vest got on and asked him to get off.

"If the man was carrying too many bags, why was he allowed to board the coach in the first place?

"It wasn't until the woman said she felt uncomfortable that he was asked to leave."

National Express said the man was asked to leave following a complaint about his "excess luggage", and strongly refuted the idea that the man's religion had any bearing on the situation.

A spokesman said: "We categorically deny an incident in which a passenger was asked to leave one of our coaches was in any way Islamophobic.

"The gentleman concerned boarded with excess luggage which became an issue for a number of our other customers.

"He refused to put the excess luggage in the hold when requested, was abusive towards our staff and walked out of the station.

"Our staff, who often have to make difficult decisions at short notice, remained professional throughout and are extremely upset at these serious allegations which are both unfounded and untrue."
