Muslim Man Stopped, Handcuffed and Searched for Wearing Too Many Clothes

In a video that went viral this week, a Muslim man is seen handcuffed and searched by London police. The problem? He was ‘wearing too many layers of clothes’ in the hot weather, according to a woman in the video, who had apparently called the authorities after finding the man suspicious.

The video posted by the Documenting Oppression Against Muslims on various social media platforms showed the man being handcuffed and searched for around five minutes in public view before being released.

This comes as Islamophobic hate crimes jumped fivefold in the wake of the London Bridge terror attack earlier this year, new figures from the Metropolitan Police released in June show.
