Telegraph Headline: Look, Muslims did something humane! (maybe)


Grenfell Tower fire: Muslims awake for Ramadan among heroes who helped save lives

Look at this headline. Have you ever seen a headline that says, “Jews save lines …” or “Christians saves lives…” or “Hindus save lives ….”? So when Muslims do something humane (which they are assuming, it’s not known for sure), something any human being would do, it’s news?

This is the very definition of the low expectation of soft bigotry. And mind you, it’s not that Muslims ran into the building to save lives, “they banged on neighbors doors.”

The actually story is, “Muslims awake due to Ramadan may have saved lives.” May? So we don’t know for sure if Muslims helped to save lives but we can deduce it.

BTW, how did the fire start?

Grenfell Tower fire: Muslims awake for Ramadan among heroes who helped save lives

Heroic residents of the Grenfell tower saved their neighbours by banging on their doors and guiding them to safety.

Local community centres and religious buildings have opened to help those who have lost their homes, and left with nothing but their pyjamas.

Muslims awake due to Ramadan may have saved lives

Rashida, a local resident, told Sky News how Muslim’s observing Ramadan may have saved lives in the tower block, as many of them were awake.

She said: “Most Muslims now observing Ramadan will normally not go to be until about 2am maybe 2.30am.

“Until they have their late night last meal. They do their last prayer.

“So most of the families around here would have been awake and I think even with the noise with the helicopters, it would have brought a lot of attention to a lot of residents non-Muslim as well that would have thought something’s going on that’s not quite normal.”

She spoke of how tight-knit the community was, and how many different nationalities lived in the tower.

She said: “It’s a very diverse area, we have all nationalities, all religions.

“We all live peacefully amongst each other, there is not much crime higher than anywhere else.

 “You can walk around safely late at night… we all know each other.

“We all know each other, there is a very high population of Moroccans, and for some reason we all live close to each other. Literally everyone knows each other.”

Nadia Yousuf, 29, told BuzzFeed Muslim residents were among the first to notice the fire, as they woke up to prepare to break their fast.

“They saw it just after they woke up to eat”, she said.

The hero who saved a little girl

A man known as Michael told Sky News of how he saved a young girl. “I wasn’t woken up by the alarms at all, they were very very quiet the alarm.

“I was in bed, and I was on the verge of falling asleep and I smelt plastic. I woke up and looked around the flat, checked the plugs, everything was okay.

“I went to the window to smoke a cigarette, I opened the window, and I heard someone saying, it’s getting bigger, its getting bigger.

“So, I’ve got out to the hallway, I’ve looked through the spy hole, I’ve seen smoke everywhere, Ive opened the door and the neighbours were there.

“People screaming, there were firemen saying ‘get down the stairs’, I’ve grabbed the little girl, I’ve grabbed my girlfriend, just in a pair of boxer shorts and a dressing gown, someone gave me these clothes, and this is it and now we are here.”

Crowdfunding to help residents get back on their feet as churches give shelter

A local church is giving shelter to those who lost their belongings and homes in the blaze.

David Lammy, the MP for Tottenham, said: “If you can help with clothes, food, blankets, toiletries etc please donate to: St Clements Church, 95 Sirdar Rd, W11 4EQ”.

The Rugby Portobello Trust is also accepting donations for residents.

Sikh Gurudwaras have also started collecting toys, food and clothes for affected residents.
