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.

That's a girl with guts, drive and integrity.

Hmmmmm. If she lives in a busy city she will be pushed and shoved. I get pushed and shoved, like everyone else, when I get on the bus and tube.

I sort of think she made a bit of a throwaway remark to the journalist and they ran with it.

I mean, she doesn't really say much about any particular incident and here's the thing; she would remember if any ting racist was said and it seems it wasn't - so perhaps the "pushing and shoving" was a normal part of city living.....

It's a bit of a non-story. There are no actual racist abuses that she is discussing? I don't get this "pushing and jabbing" thing?? This happens all the time in busy cities and shopping centres.

She admits she didn't like going out so perhaps she was sensitive to city life and shopping centres etc?

When I go to London (and I was BORN there so know the way of life) I get pushed and shoved all the time trying to get in buses - do I take that as racism if it's done by a group of black girls? (And they can be among the rudest and loudest and pushiest)

If it were a racist action that she had experienced, why wasn't the "push" and the "jabs" also accompanied by racist words?

I'm sorry, I think she is over egging her pudding.

At least she's not scared of her own shadow anymore as she was very confident on the bake off programme Rolling Eyes

She doesn't go into enough specifics? Maybe she didn't feel like it. Not everybody wants to tell the news media about the most humiliating experiences of their lives.
  for trying, but once the racial sluring group has set their locked jaws into a Muslim WOMANS happy winning contest ...the story line becomes more about trashing a decent human being then the reason that the article and the thread was generated!

All of the vitriol from the same rank and file members speaks more profoundly about them then it does about her!  
BTW - Didge-dooer ...your failing memory seems to be slipping several gogs ...you've called Ben & I Jew Haters - You spew you BS so often you can't remember

But I'm done letting you trash yet another if Sassy's decent topic's just because your so F'd up Twisted Evil

Hang on, just becasue I don't believe the reporting, you're bad-mouthing me?
I think the story has been a little over-dramatised and says nothing about any incidents.

I liked her in the programme and was glad she won. I'm betting she read that article and thought "well that's not exactly what I meant....."

And I'm betting the opposite, because I listened to the programme.  Even in the articles if you read them, she says why she won't make a big thing about it.  You think she can't tell the difference between being pushed and shoved ON PURPOSE and HAVING THINGS THROWN AT HER AND VERBAL ABUSE, as apposed to being knocked into in the hurly burly of life.

Okay well I didn't see anyhing in your OP that states verbal abuse.
Verbal abuse is different.

As often as I've had to 'EXPLAIN' the quotation function around here and yet here once again is your paranoia flaring up and you Assuming something that just isn't so!

I quoted Ben's post and 'I' responded to his post and all of the VILE/Personality Muslim bashing that was taking place up to THAT POINT ... Evil or Very Mad

And yet had you really cared and wanted to read of the links that Sassy & I had supplied - cared enough to really follow the information, you'd have been better informed then to attach your OPINION to Didgey-dooer's lame personality assassination driven posts!    
But the cycle of life for patting and arse kissing has gone full circle for the problem child and he's reaping the benefits for his disruptive behavior!

Nope, you shouldn't play bluff when you know you are talking rubbish so didn't follow through.

Think that bluff has just been called.

When presenter Kirsty Young ­commented that was unusual, Nadiya replied: “I’ve spent my whole life watching my parents sacrifice things for me so buying a house was nothing.
“I couldn’t bear the fact that someone would come in and treat my mum like a second-class citizen.”

http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/great-british-bake-winner-nadiya-8626482

It was probably something very small.



But that isn't the point is it Tommy.   You are vile enough to want to discredit her because she is Muslim and will clutch at any straw to do it.   You are despicable.

So now she had 2 jobs at 19...?

Yeah ok!!!


lol!

Wouldn't expect you to comprehend this ...but that's not so uncommon; even over here in the USA ...many teenagers have to work 2 - 3 sometimes 4 part-time jobs just to get a full 40hr work week in and most of them still go to college! 

And you smirk and LOL at that!  Suspect   Now, that says lots more about YOUR morality then it does for those that are willing and able to WORK!  Twisted Evil

Do you know how many hours or how much money she was supposedly getting from each of these 2 jobs?


I can assure you that she wouldn't have been earning enough, and would not have had enough employment history to have even been able to get a mortgage... let alone get a mortgage large enough to buy the parents large house at 19!!!


The whole story stinks!!!

She and her family now got a home loan did they?


She says she bought the house at 19 and it was nothing... but she says her dad owned a restaurant... but couldn't buy a house Himself?


There is no way that she would have got a mortgage at 19 after bring fresh out of sixth form college... and having no employment history.

Yes I already saw that... I was just making the case that her being able to buy the house herself was nonsense.

The problem here is that the British on this site are, in general, the most nationalistic people I've ever met. And I know some of the most conservative Republican types you can imagine.

They just can't allow into their imagination of what Britain is the possibility that a Muslim woman could endure daily racial abuse there. Their country has problems, they'll allow, but not problems like that.

Mind you, these are the same people who've never seen a Muslim do a damn thing wrong, but hate them because of what they read in the papers.

But let a Muslim woman say she's been subjected to a lot of racism, and suddenly the papers are all wrong. Because the UK is the greatest most tolerant country in the world, and everybody wishes they were British.

She seems a nice enough lass but should resist being wheeled out everytime the media wants a token Muslim opinion on the latest argument. She will become over exposed which would be ironic for a religion so strict about covering up with hijabs and such like.

It was only a baking competition. Why these people have to seek attention for other alleged issues is a mystery.

Well to be fair, she was just being interviewed. It's up to the journalist/paper, what they print.

She is an utterly lovely, dignified woman, who worked like hell to buy her parents that home, 2 jobs at 19 is no joke.   She has a husband, children and parents who adore her, and although it was 'only a cooking programme', she contested is with humility and grace and has now used it to help her family.   The fact that people would even consider putting her down for it, and for telling the truth about the racial abuse she has received, is beyond disgusting and a marker of the underlying racism behind the comments.

I doubt she bought a house at 19 unless she had a load of money as a deposit.

Why? Because cooking doesn't impress me? I know one person who made fab cakes, but cooking in general just doesn't impress me. Other things and some people impress me - you're not one of them obviously.

As opposed to your face being grey?

Aren't you doing the very thing Ben has enacted the new rules for?  That's my final word on the subject, I'm not going to be diverted by you.

Do you remember something you'd said about the American Media playing up on our BLM {black lives matter} story line, Eddie?

Don't you think that even in England, that the desire for some 'GOOD NEWS'; regardless of what direction it comes from - especially about a Muslim woman/mother/wife/baker would be something that the media & news print would want to promote? 
Just say'n ...that there's a lot that gets edited out of any final proof sheet/final draft and video feed ...so chances are the editors from one news article to another or news source to another just decided 'negative has had enough run for now, we're going to leave it as a single line item and not go into all of those nitty-gritty details' and focus on the reason this woman is in our front page - nightly news spot'!   

It's the constant attacking the members for bringing a decent thread/topic for discussion that is growing irksome/old - utter BS instead of discussing the reasons and happy thing that happened - the naysayers have to pick & attack!

She is an utterly lovely, dignified woman, who worked like hell to buy her parents that home, 2 jobs at 19 is no joke.   She has a husband, children and parents who adore her, and although it was 'only a cooking programme', she contested is with humility and grace and has now used it to help her family.   The fact that people would even consider putting her down for it, and for telling the truth about the racial abuse she has received, is beyond disgusting and a marker of the underlying racism behind the comments.
I love that show - I've enjoyed ever season and I'm looking forward to the next one to start right after the Olympics' is finished up.  I couldn't do what they do - I couldn't take the pressure - and I'd have far more failures then successes for sure! 
But I'd sure love to be a taste tester ...yes, INDEED!

You were the one who started the disruption by getting personal about me. Don't do it, and I won't need to reply.

Contradiction alert again lol

Again you can make all the excuses you like, the fact is the article by the Guardian on mentions the same aspct on racism as it does in one sentence in their whole article.
They spoilt the article.
The article is a bit propaganda and lacks context. Where was she pushed and shoved? Why? Ever been on the rush hour tube, ever been to a gig,ever been to the sales? Lots of pushing and shoving.
