England, Memes, and Police: PECIA Kurta Cobain 1 @ElSangito her name is saffiyah khan. iconic embodiment of both young modern britain and the entire concept of "u mad?" 3:15 PM 9 Apr 2017 4,281 10.416 !!!! (Edit: for people asking what happened, basically on Saturday in Birmingham the EDL were holding a 'protest'. They're a violent, incredibly racist group who call themselves the 'English defence league' and basically want England to be white again. Anyway, there were also counter-protesters there, and one of them, a hijabi, called them 'racist', after which a group of these grown men surrounded her and started being aggressive and intimidating. Despite the police presence, the woman was surrounded quickly in what must have been a terrifying situation. Cue Saffiyah Khan, who stepped in to defend a stranger and tell the men to back off, which is when this amazing picture was taken. The red-faced guy she is smiling at is Ian Crosslands, the leader of the EDL, who, after this picture went viral, released a statement saying 'she's lucky she has any teeth left.' He claimed that she was interrupting a minute's silence for the victims of the Westminster attack, hence the angry confrontation, but video footage proves this to be a blatant lie. The police escorted her away from the situation for her own safety - she was not arrested and is now being praised as a symbol of strength, defiance and basic human decency in the face of bigotry ~ Amber)
