Woman who banned Muslims from beauty salon arrested

A UK woman who posted a ‘racially abusive’ message on Facebook, banning Muslims from her beauty salon, has been arrested.

April Major, 43, posted on her beauty salon’s Facebook page: ‘no longer taking bookings from anyone from the Islamic faith’ , ‘whether you are UK granted with passport or not. Sorry but time to put my country first’.

The post was made following the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday, which claimed the lives of 129 and injured hundreds more.


After receiving multiple complaints about the woman’s message on Social Media, police arrested her yesterday.

She was arrested under section 19 of the Public Order Act which 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.

She has been released on bail until 30 November.
