The controversy that has broken out this month in France with regards to the burkini’s ban has shown us the most intolerant and prejudicial face of this State, spreading, in addition, the debate to other countries.
Among them, the United Kingdom has a relatively high percentage of Muslim population (the 2011 census estimated that a 4.8% of the total population was Muslim) and has made the front pages lately due to its conservative regard towards immigration, as seen in the Brexit referendum. For this reason, it was decided to carry out a social experiment to see what the reaction would be if the UK decided to implement this ban in its beaches.
An actor dressed up as a policeman approached a women wearing a burkini and compelled her to take it off at a beach near Essex. Fortunately, the people’s reaction was very different to the one we have seen this days.
