Government indifferent to sacrifices of Muslim front-line workers

19th Mar 2021

Sir, we do not need a parliamentary report to tell us that in a bid to keep us underpaid and overworked successive Tory governments, who have, for decades categorised jobs filled by BAME/Muslim workers as “low-skilled”, suddenly rebranded them as “essential” and “key” workers. (‘British Muslims deserve better, says parliamentary report.’

The Muslim News, February 26.) Our over-representation in those essential jobs is why we disproportionately lost many of our medical workers to this pandemic; in fact, we lost people in every conceivable front-line sector from transport to delivery services from waste disposal to food retail.

So, what did those key Muslim workers and their families, who sacrificed so much, get in return? Vilification!
Our MPs did and said nothing as social media companies let misinformation on why Muslims had higher infection rates go rampant and uncorrected, never mind that we live in over-crowded housing with several generations under one roof or that many of us do not have the luxury of remote working.

The reason for Muslims higher mortality and infection rates, the public was told, is a lax attitude to rules and guidelines.
