Daily Mirror reported that the woman, referred to as April Major, made a Facebook post where she says she will no longer be taking bookings from Muslims in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.
Woman bans Muslims from her beauty salon
A woman in the UK has been arrested for saying she will no longer cater to Muslims in her beauty salon.
Police reported that the 43-year-old woman was arrested under section 19 of the Public Order Act.
Section 19 relates to 'the display of written material which is threatening, abusive or insulting with the intention of stirring up racial hatred, and for producing malicious communications.'
The Facebook posts, which were later deleted had the following messages;
"Time to put my country first.
"Blinks of Bicester are no longer taking bookings from anyone from the Islamic faith whether you are UK granted with passport or not."
"I have been inundated with messages tonight as I said I would not book any muslin [sic] or Islamic client. I stand by that completely as a UK citizen."
These messages certainly offended quite a few people as one commenter on her page said, "I hope your families get blown up by ISIS."
In a statement, the Police said: "We take all such complaints seriously and will investigate."
