Aussie reactions to Muslim criticism of “Top Gear”

The Australian media have reported on the “offence” taken by a Muslim to Top Gear‘s Niqab-wearing Boxing Day special.   Click on the picture to read the article.

As of the time of posting, there are 186 comments, of which about 180 tell the Muslim to ‘get a sense of humour’, ‘get a life’, and ‘get back to where you came from’, in various colourful ways.   Two of these laid-back comments are from Australian Muslims!  None of the comments are rude, merely forceful.  How different from MyT.

There is only one uptight Aussie Muslim getting on his high horse about the “one true monotheistic religion”, and one PC Aussie screaming about ‘racism’; both of these receive short shrift from the others.  Read them yourself, if you have a spare half-hour.

Non-Aussies may at first miss the significance of the phrase that several posters use – “The burqas are better at Hungry Jacks” – but I’m sure you can work it out. 😀

  1. I could only see three comments, Bearsy, but I agree with you.

    I didn’t see the “offending” programme but forceful is fine, offensive and abusive is not.

    Muslims actually do have a sense of humour, but extremists of any stripe are pretty humourless, in my opinion.

  2. At the bottom right hand corner of the box containing the three comments, there is a link in blue which says “Read all 192 comments”. If you click on that, you will be able to read all the comments! Doh! 🙄
