British Student Rejects Home Secretary’s Comments on Muslims, Multiculturalism

“Suella Braverman is wrong - we have always had Muslim neighbors and it's great”

As a white British kid, born and raised in Bradford, Elora Kirk has always had Muslim neighbors and friends.

Kirk, 23, said those Muslim neighbors were always friendly and generous and shared food with her family, especially during Ramadan and Eid.

“I am born and raised in Bradford. The school I went to was in a ‘white’ area, but as long as I can remember, we have always had Muslim neighbors, and it has been great. You learn so much about different cultures and religions,” she told The Mirror.

“Our Muslim neighbors are very generous, always sending over food, especially on special occasions, like Eid and during Ramadan.

“Obviously they have certain rules about their faith, but that doesn’t stop them from being friendly.”

Elora said Bradford has the largest youth population in Europe, adding: “Maybe it’s easier for young people to mix. We don’t have prejudices, maybe.”

Her comments were a sharp contrast to those given by Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who has controversially claimed that multiculturalism has “failed” in Europe.

The eyebrow-raising comment was part of the home secretary’s speech on migration to a centre-right think tank in Washington DC on Tuesday.


Prompted by Braverman’s speech, people started to reveal how their own lives suggest that multiculturalism works.
