Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain says racist abuse is part of her everyday life

Post by sassy on Sun Aug 14, 2016 10:07 pm

First topic message reminder :

TV cook and author tells Desert Island Discs she has come to expect being ‘shoved, pushed or verbally abused’




Nadiya Hussain, the winner of last year’s Great British Bake Off, says that racist abuse has become an everyday part of her life.

Speaking on Sunday’s Desert Island Discs on BBC Radio 4, Hussain said she is astounded at being credited for her positive effect on race relations with the Muslim community as she described the anti-Islamic abuse she still suffers.

“It sounds really silly [but] it feels like that’s become a part of my life now– I expect it,” she said. “I expect to be shoved or pushed or verbally abused, because it happens, it’s happened for years.”

The 31-year-old said the abuse has made her even more determined to be a role model to her three children and the wider Muslim community.

Hussain said: “I love being British and I love living here, this is my home and it always will be regardless of all the other things that define me. This is my home and I want my kids to be proud of that and I don’t want them to grow up with a chip on their shoulder, so I live as positively as I can.”




During her 10 years as a stay-at-home mother, Hussain said she “got so bogged down in being the best housewife” that she began losing herself, trapped in a bubble where she only spoke to close family and feared strangers’ judgment.

“I couldn’t get on a bus with them [her two eldest children] because I was so afraid of people looking at me, or people thinking I looked horrible, or people judging me and how could she possibly have two children in that space of time?” she said.

Hussain also spoke about her own childhood, from happy times living in Bangladesh to the family’s reliance on her grandmother while her parents cared for her two seriously ill siblings in hospital.

She said she bought her parents’ first house for them at the age of 19, adding: “I’ve spent my whole life watching my parents sacrifice things for me, so buying a house was nothing.”

Among the tracks she chose on the show was Counting Crows’ Accidentally in Love, which is the song that her now husband Abdul played in the background when they began courting each other before tying the knot in an arranged marriage aged 19.

She said her husband still serenades her with the song every day.

Since her victory in the final of Bake Off, which was the most-watched TV show in 2015 with 15 million viewers, Hussain’s career has skyrocketed. Her first cookbook, Nadiya’s Kitchen, was released in June, she writes a cooking column for the Times, and made the Queen’s 90th birthday cake.

She will also present an upcoming two-part BBC series called The Chronicles of Nadiya, which is described as “an exuberant food-inspired journey from Nadiya’s birthplace in Luton to her family village in the north-east of Bangladesh”, as well as judging the new Junior Bake Off.

Last week, Hussain told the Times she began wearing a hijab at the age of 14 to cover up her “bad hair more than anything else” because her father “cut it really badly”. Her parents, she said, were not particularly religious and neither her mother nor three sisters wore a hijab when she was growing up.

Thank you Raggs!
Do you think I'm reading too much into things...?
Or do you think I might be on to something...?
It's just that the bits and pieces of story aren't adding up right to me... and I get the feeling there is a bit more being said than there appears to be... cryptic if you like...
So, our  see's a "cryptic" situation in these photo's and plethora of articles & interviews/video that Nadiya's given ...

Well, in that case ...do not hesitate - do not let that door prevent your departure - do not waste any more time - gather your necessary detective/crime scene equipment and rush to the scene of the crime
  wait ...there wasn't any crime committed ...just a baking contest winner Rolling Eyes

I don't think I want to drink to that, I think it's bloody sad and extremely pathetic.   But there you go.   I'll bring popcorn though.

No need to lock it, it's a thread about a lovely person.

Just tell Miffs to grow up stop coming on here just to find something nasty to say to me.   I used to worry about it - used to, don't anymore.

Pssst, is this where you start showing me how "TO GROW THE FUCK UP"
I'm sooooo confused; people claim that they're real religious - claiming that they care about people for work - claiming - claiming - claiming and I have a lunatic wanting my proof of ancestry that you all fawn all over like he's the 2nd coming of JESUS!

Nadiya Hussain is a national treasure and I can't see any evidence that she has lied about anything.

Just the usual RW's trying to discredit a woman for nothing more than she is a Muslim.

It's nothing more than pure hate and it's disgusting.

Nadiya rocks cheers cheers cheers

Indeed she does: she's stunning - she's married to a STUNNING HANDSOME MAN - her family support her - her children are Adorable - she's got a firm/quiet resolve and she can BAKE and she's got more CLASS her little finger then the 'fuck-wits' that are nit-picking at her about crap that they haven't a CLUE about!  Suspect

I'd be honored to call her my friend ...these nim-rods = not worthy to clean my toilet ...they'd still need numerous directions for no more attention then they pay or are able to read! Twisted Evil

Amasing this ignore facility, when you claim to have me on ignore, as I am constantly talked about by you lol
Anyone would think you are scared to debate me
The only thing "SCARY" about you - is that 'Jekyll & Hyde" mentality that you flip between while pretending to be so sweet and sincere "I'm really a softy and a giver and I care about people" ...while bullying/throwing tantrums/blowing your ego and trashing any and every topic at will. 
Oh, indeed your one SCARY MOTHER FUCKER and just a real FUCK-WIT to boot! 
But I'm still praying for your salvation and mental health ...you are in dire need of both!

I know there are chairs in Bangladesh and also cheese - which is cheap and a staple.

She has over egged her pudding and indeed, lots of bangladeshis on social media are saying so.

Who cares? Most people are liars.

And there's no place to read an see more vile social media bashing of any one that's made a name for them selves or said some thing that could set the social world's HAIR ON FIRE then FB.
I'd hate to attempt to state any of my families personal/unigue things that we do but others considered it really odd because it wasn't 'NORMAL' custom that people in KS did daily!
But we the 'perfect' ones live to judge - live to be critical of any one else we want too ...especially the ones that have moved ahead of their position in life.
Who do they think they are confused   LOL
