MUSLIMS proudly selling poppies have been the victims of vile abuse.

ABUSE: Naveed Uz Zafar (wearing poppy) was verbally attacked outside London’s Euston Station

Members of a branch of Islam called Ahmadiyya say they have been called infidels and traitors.

Naveed Uz Zafar, whose uncle served in the RAF, was verbally attacked outside London’s Euston Station last week.

He said: “This man loudly accused us of betraying Muslims.”

Dr Ijaz Rehman – a leader of the Ahmadiyya sect, which raised £100,000 last year – said: “We have all heard the calls of infidel and the suggestion that poppies are somehow racist. But it’s rubbish.

“Our motto is: ‘Love for all, hatred for none.’ As we live in this country, are protected by this country, then we are loyal to this country, as many of our ancestors were.”

Many young people said last week they would not wear a poppy because they believe it glorifies war.

A survey found 11% of Brits will boycott the Royal British Legion’s appeal, which raises £43million for ex-service personnel every year.

  1. Well, I am not British therefore you might forgive me for not being enthusiastic about this poppy stuff. Unfortunately after World War Two the European armies have not really fought any useful wars. The British soldiers have been misled and misused in Iraqi and Afghan wars. No, I would not purchase any poppies myelf…

  2. My message to extremist Muslim around the world, please try to respect and accept the differences in global society so we can live in peace, harmony and happiness.
    Try to love all people we are all human.
