By BI: A British waterpark in Stoke-on-Trent has sparked fury among civilized people by banning bikinis and ordering non-Muslim visitors to cover up in ‘Islamically appropriate’ body bags for women-only pool hours.
UK Express WaterWorld in Stoke-on-Trent plans to black out windows and provide a prayer room during a women-only night aimed at Muslims. Only female lifeguards will patrol the park during the event, which has triggered a flood of complaints.
Staff will also “guard” the front entrance to “make sure that no males enter the facility”.
FRANCE, on the other hand, bans sharia-compliant Muslim swimwear for hygiene reasons: Pool in Paris bans the ‘burqini’
The Stoke-on-Trent water park has been accused of getting around rules that stop companies discriminating based on religion by designating the night in August as a private event.
Conservative MP Philip Hollobone said: ‘I imagine there would be a lot of outrage if the boot was on the other foot and swimmers were told they had to dress appropriately in respect of Christians. I don’t see how this is different.”
Even at a pool in Marrakesh, Morocco (a Muslim country), a sign which is written in three languages, reads “(Islamic) Burkini not allowed.” The pool’s administration explained that this strict new measure is taken for “hygiene reasons.”
One invitation to the “Sisters Only Funday” advises attendees to cover their “awrah” (nudity) by wearing full-length jogging bottoms and a dark-coloured t-shirt. Protesters are now planning to demonstrate outside the event.
WaterWorld owner Mo Chaudry said: “I’m astonished that we have been targeted. We feel we’ve been victimised for offering something that we feel there is a demand for.”
A WaterWorld spokesman said: “We pride ourselves in having the adaptability and diversity to cater to demands of our guests. “This is a female-only event and is not specific to any ethnic or religious group.”
Customers have inundated the park’s Facebook page with complaints, claiming it is ‘segregating’ swimmers. The English Defence League is also planning to hold a protest.
