A video of a woman going on an anti-Muslim rant at a niqab wearing woman and her husband in a west London supermarket has gone viral earlier this month.

The footage filmed by the husband on July 31 and uploaded to Facebook by a family friend has since been viewed thousands of times. The fracas erupted by the checkout of an Aldi supermarket in Feltham, Hounslow, captures a white middle aged woman berating the Muslim woman for her attire.

Their antagonist identified by the MailOnline as 48-year-old Kerrie Anne Turner from Feltham, starts the tirade by repeatedly saying the word “disgusting” after the husband asks her if she thinks “freedom of choice is disgusting? ”

He then tells her that he “thinks her attitude is disgusting” as she responds “no” before telling him that “you should not allow your wife to go around like that”.

The wife begins to interrupt by telling Turner “why should he be my boss, he’s not my boss.” While remaining calm, the husband says the ranting woman should educate herself but she responds by asking him if he knows the Qur’an.

She said: “You’re supposed to be a peaceful bloody person.” The husband tells the woman that she is the one who is speaking with “disrespect”. She then points at the wife to tell her, “You shouldn’t be around like that, you look like a bloody pillar box.”

Defending his wife, the husband says it is her choice to be dressed like that as the woman shouts “disgusting, absolutely disgusting”. The husband responds by telling her that “your attitude is disgusting” before she once again points at his wife and says “that is disgusting and should be banned.”

The video, which lasts for almost two minutes, starts to come to an end with the woman telling the husband to educate himself as he tells her “you should be a comedian.”
The argument continues in the fashion for around a minute until an off-screen voice, presumably a member of staff, tells the woman to calm down “otherwise you are going to get banned”.

Not one person inside the busy store intervened on the couple’s behalf or reprimanded the woman for her unprovoked outburst.

In a statement to The Muslim News, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed they were “aware of a video” and that “from the Community Safety Unit at Hounslow borough are investigating. There have been no arrests.”
