Congratulations to Nadiya Hussain the winner of Great British Bake Off. Even Daily Mail columnist Jan Moir seemed pleased for her. Moir wrote:
"She had feared being dismissed by viewers as a ‘Muslim in a headscarf’. But Nadiya Hussain triumphed in last night’s Bake Off final with a spectacular wedding cake inspired by her multi-cultural upbringing."
But which "viewers" I wonder would have been so awful as to dismiss a contestant as a "Muslim in a headscarf"?
Presumably viewers like Moir's Daily Mail colleague Quentin Letts who accused the BBC of "sourcing... fashionable minorities" for Bake Off and dismissed Nadiya as a "Muslim with a headscarf".
Those awful viewers.
A mention also for the Mail's Amanda Platell who had suggested other contestants should have tried baking "a chocolate mosque" if they wanted to compete with the "PC" bias shown to Nadiya as a result of her being a Muslim.
