Abuse hell of Nadiya

The People - - NEWS FEATURES - By Karen Rock­ett

BAKE Off champ Nadiya Hus­sain has re­vealed: “It’s scary to be a Mus­lim now.”

Lu­ton-born Nadiya, 33, added she is fed up with be­ing told to go back “home”.

She said her three kids ask: “Mummy, do peo­ple not like Mus­lims?”

She added that she is abused on so­cial me­dia.

“I have to jus­tify my ex­is­tence all the time,” said Nadiya, who won BBC TV’S Bake Off in 2015.

“I’m a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing. I’m brown, I’m Mus­lim, I cover my hair.

“I claim to be Bri­tish at the same time, so I get abuse from ev­ery an­gle.

“I’m never a good enough Mus­lim, not a good enough Brit, not a good enough Bangladeshi.

“Three years ago I would have taken it. Not now, I will say some­thing.”

She said she has re­jected Strictly – but is tempted by be­ing in I’m a Celebrity.
