Joining as a muslim at the moment

#1
would it be a good idea to apply now after this stupid act? a few of my mates were thinking of applying as a officers after getting our results we feel a bit perturbed that we will get some extra stick for being muslims after looking at some of the reactions . sorry of if this isnt the right place to apply.

I wouldn't let this stand in your way. There are rather a lot of Irish Officers in the Army as well. Their fellow countrymen did things equally as bad during The Troubles and it didn't effect them. The only advice I would give you (purely from a Personal Security side) is be careful who you tell within your Community. As with the Irish Officers / Soldiers , a leak in the wrong ear can have terrible consequences.

I genuinely don't think there would be a problem. This site attracts the never-did, bitter, right-wing idiots that are not representative of the British army. There are Muslins, Jews, Atheists (hurrah!), Christians, Buddihsts and more (thats just my company of 116 men & women), its not a drama.

There are nutters in the Army who will dislike you 'just because', but thankfully they're few and far between - probably less than in many trades in the civilian world.

Whatever your final decision, good luck!

A) If you're a journo hoping for a rise, please feel free to sod off at high port.

B) If you're genuine, it won't make a ha'penworth of difference. You will be judged on you ability to lead, whether you be Muslim, Jew, Christian, Atheist or Zoroastrian*.

* However, getting over excited at hexi-telly if you do use fire as a focus of worship whilst trying to be tactically quiet may be frowned upon and you may be asked to curtail activities until the danger of detection by light has passed.

Were you. I think you would fail on your grammar. Your post is simply to create reaction on a very bad day. Run along now shall you.

Not exactly a shining light in the grammar dept yourself! No question mark at the end of the first sentence and the second sentence makes no sense. Cock!

In truth, I think you'd be welcomed with open arms ESPECIALLY after today.

You wont get any hassle over your spirtual beliefs or skin colour... BUT.... If you are short,tall, have big ears , nose , wonky eyes , or the holy grail of a speech impediment you will be ridiculed at every chance available. This is just banter & will stop once you windmill into your tormentor. After which you will buy him a pint & you,ll all be bezzers again. ( well I hope it still works like that :/)
