Muslim public driver halts bus services and denies women entry for prayer in Sweden

A Muslim driver of a public bus in Stockholm denied a woman entry onto his bus because he and two other men were praying in the vehicle.

This unacceptable and blatant act of public discrimination occurred last Friday evening. The victim stated that she hesitated to tell anyone because she was afraid that no one would believe her story.

The following week the story was confirmed by a local Moderate Party politician Kristoffer Tamsons who took to Facebook to state that the Muslim driver’s behavior was “unacceptable.”

Tamson mentioned that he had initiated an investigation into the incident in order to clarify the general standards of the transport boards and to investigate how employees are permitted to practice their religion at work and onboard public vehicles.

The woman involved in the incident said that when she looked inside the bus she discovered the driver along with two boys kneeling on the seats engaged in prayer. After she tried to board the bus and knocked on its door, the driver ignored her presence and rudely left her to stand outside in the rain, Swedish news site Nyheter Idag reports.

Although the public employee eventually let the woman onto the bus after he had finished his prayer, the woman said that he quickly became aggressive toward her because she had disturbed him while he as praying.

Due to the driver’s aggressive behavior, the woman quickly became uncomfortable riding this bus, so she called a friend who came and collected her with his car.

Hanif Bali, a Moderate politician who is well known for his staunch opposition to mass immigration, posted an image of the bus driving praying on the bus with the text: “A woman was not allowed on a bus in Värmdö late at night, the bus driver had prayer time with his children. After the prayer time, he acted threateningly against the woman. I guess it’s Mormons.”
