A Muslim girl wearing hijab has been caught on video twerking with a street dancer in Birmingham. The footage was leaked to social media and got over 1 million views.
The video prompted an angry reaction from the Muslim community with some putting death threads to the unknown dancer. One person wrote in a comment: ‘F*****g s**t someone give me her address I will kill her’. Another guy seconded: ‘Stupid b****h needs to be killed’.
She later apologised for ‘disrespecting’ Islam. Her actions were called ‘really bad’ and ‘inappropriate’ by prominent UK Muslims.

In an interview she said: ‘I was out with my friends, we were going shopping and there were these people playing music, there was one song that a girl wanted to dance with me.’ She then added that she has mental health problems and often struggles to ‘think straight’.
‘To all the girls that wear hijab and wear abayah I’m sorry for disrespecting it,’ the girl said. “I’ve learnt from my mistake, …. I’m just hurt, I just want everybody to leave it alone and keep everything away.
‘I don’t want it to be how it was and I’m not gonna do anything like again and I’m sorry for disrespecting it and thank you to all of you that helped.’
The story caused a storm on social media.
