UK Home Office Staff Invited to Celebrate ‘World Hijab Day’, Claims Whistleblower

A Home Office whistleblower has claimed that the UK authorities division urged workers to have a good time “World Hijab Day” whereas claiming that the Islamic headdress is a “personal choice”, regardless of its personal refugee steering stating that many ladies face “persecution” for refusing to put on the spiritual garb and are subsequently entitled to asylum standing in Britain.

An electronic mail reportedly despatched to civil servants from the Home Office’s Islamic Network (HOIN), a gaggle of Muslim volunteers among the many division’s workers, extolled the virtuous points of the Islamic Hijab, claiming that it was “brought to women as a way of protection” and that it was not the case that males power girls into sporting the headdress however reasonably that “many Muslim women choose to wear the hijab for various reasons, and mainly to grow closer to their faith and Allah.”

While the e-mail did meekly acknowledge that “not all experiences have been positive” it claimed, according to The Telegraph, that the hijab was “a personal choice and being a Muslim means constantly striving to strengthen your faith (Iman). Different women are at different stages of their spiritual journey.”

They went on to urge workers to conduct “workshops or training sessions to raise awareness about the hijab, its significance, and dispel misconceptions”, to“foster an open and respectful workplace culture where employees feel comfortable discussing their needs” and develop “an inclusive and respectful environment”.

The Home Office staffer who disclosed the e-mail went on to reveal that civil servants had been even inspired to have a good time “World Hijab Day”, regardless that the Home Office itself classifies the forceable “compliance with religious codes or dress” amounted to “persecution” that could possibly be utilized by girls to declare asylum within the UK.

The whistleblower claimed to be “terrified” that one of many asylum circumstances they deal with will “end up in the news”, in reference to the acid assault suspected to have been carried out in Clapham by Abdul Shokoor Ezedi, who was granted asylum after being initially rejected twice.

“There has been no internal communication about the recent acid attack case. Nothing. Not even an email telling us that they are looking into how it could have been allowed to happen,” the civil servant wrote.

“Instead we are bombarded with emails that celebrate things like “World Hijab Day’’ at the same time as I deal with cases of women claiming they cannot go back to Iran otherwise they will be forced into wearing these items.”

The Home Office staffer went on to declare that three out of 4 asylum claims are illegitimate and that migrants are sometimes “coached” to improve their chance of being granted the fitting to stay within the UK, similar to claiming to have “converted” to Christianity or falsely asserting to be homosexual and subsequently are in worry of persecution of their house nation.

“Not every asylum seeker starts off knowing how to game the system, however, it has become clear to me that word spreads and trends emerge regarding how to game their applications,” the whistleblower wrote.

They mentioned that due to the political push to clear the massive backlog of asylum circumstances — exacerbated by the waves of illegals crossing the English Channel — there was stress on caseworkers to “cut corners” and to “err on the side of accepting people”. The Home Office civil servant mentioned that whereas it takes “less than half an hour” to settle for an asylum declare, but however, it takes “around a day” to write up the justification and proof for refusing the declare.

“This job is incredibly stressful and I worry that people’s safety is being put at risk. Some applicants will arrive with criminal convictions, including sexual offences, but this does not automatically disbar them from entry,” they mentioned, persevering with: “The Home Office ethos and ‘values’ are all around safeguarding asylum seekers and protecting their welfare. My department is failing in its first mission and priority, to protect the British public.”

A Home Office spokesperson mentioned: “The Home Office treats its workers equally and pretty. It is a spot the place workers may be themselves at work and share their experiences.

“We do not recognise these claims on the processing of asylum claims. There are thorough processes in place to ensure all claims are decided without bias, and any staff with concerns should raise them through departmental processes.”
