Muslim father says eight-year-old daughter has been branded 'terrorist' at school in wake of Manchester bomb in emotional TV appeal for unity

SHARE:

A Muslim father has told how his eight-year-old daughter was branded a 'terrorist' at school in the wake of the Manchester bombing.

The man revealed the crucial jibe as he made an emotional appeal for the country to come together in the wake of the atrocity.

The moving moment came during the BBC's flagship Question Time programme, which was filmed in Salford last night as a mark of respect.

Addressing a panel including Home Secretary Amber Rudd and Manchester mayor Andy Burnham.

'My eight-year-old daughter asked me why her friends are referring to her as a terrorist,' the man said.

He also said the car journey taking her to school had been 'so difficult' because she was asking what a bomb was.

'The journey to work was so difficult,' he said. She was asking me what a bomb is.

'It was absolutely horrendous.'

Anti-extremism campaigners Sara Khan and Colin Parry were also on the panel, along with police chief Nazir Afzal.

Another muslim man in the audience made a passionate appeal for unity that was given rousing applause.

'I am a proud Manc and a proud Muslim. When Manchester hurts I hurt,' he said.

'I'm hurting after what happened on Monday and what happened on Monday night was an evil act, and abhorrent act and should be condemned with the strongest condemnation and to think that somebody can target small girls and anybody, but small girls in particular, to carry out evil.'

He continued: 'Islam is not the reason people do bad things, people do bad things because they are evil and they're bad people.'

He concluded: 'Let us please not let people who hate and who want to divide us divide us - let's be united together.'

Mr Burnham spoke of his pride in the city's response and praised the emergency services.

'This has been our darkest hour. But I would also say we've seen the best of Greater Manchester this week.

'I couldn't be more proud.'
