When a tired woman put her feet up on the seat next to her on a London commuter train, she didn’t think anyone would be offended. Much to everyone’s surprise, a Muslim man, who had been riding in the same car, came rushing over shouting that she should be in prison!
The man continued his rant by saying, “I can’t sit there and I cannot pray with my clothes, OK? And I travel every day.”
It wasn’t long before other passengers on the train tried to defuse the situation, but without any success.
At that time, the woman, Ruby Butler commented “I’m tired and I’ve had a long day.”
Unfortunately, that wasn’t good enough for the outraged man as he once again suggested that she be thrown in jail for her “crimes.”
According to reports, the Muslim man was actually upset because having one’s feet on a place where a Muslim could sit is considered extremely rude. Although he wasn’t sitting there, just thinking that other Muslims who ride the train may unknowingly take that seat later was enough for him to be outraged.
