A customer was shocked to find an Islamaphobic poster in his local J.D. Wetherspoon pub recently.
The man had entered the Moon on the Square pub in Feltham, Middlesex when he saw the poster on a customer noticeboard telling Muslim’s to ‘get the f**k out of our countries’.
It featured a drawing of WWI leader Lord Kitchener and read as: ‘MUSLIMS. Are you unhappy with our countries? Are you offended by our culture? Would you prefer to live under sharia law?
‘Then we have a simple solution for you.
‘Get the f**k out of our countries and go back to the monstrous s***tholes you came from. You can live under Muslim rule there and enjoy it as much as you like.’
The man had entered the pub with a Muslim friend for a quick bite of lunch when they were shocked by the notice.
He said: ‘Just as we sat down inside the pub, I noticed the sign a few tables away from us.
‘My friend, who is a Muslim, didn’t say anything but I could see he was highly uncomfortable.
‘We only had thirty minutes for lunch, but were both so angry that we got up and left before having our sandwiches.’
