Muslim bartender served alcohol during Ramadan, assaulted

A young female bartender was reportedly beaten and abused by two Muslim men in France after she served alcohol during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

The woman, a Muslim ,told the French Nouvel Obs newspaper”I was all alone in the bar when two passersby stormed in. They pointed at the alcohol bottles at the counter, and one of them told me in Arabic, ‘You should be ashamed of serving alcohol during Ramadan.”

One of the men then threatened her, saying, “If I was God, I would have you hanged.”

They left, but one of them came back soon afterwards and beat the woman, hitting her on the face and knocking her to the ground.

The assault was caught on a CCTV camera and reported to police.

The victim was left with bruises, and in complete shock.

“Serving alcohol doesn’t mean I’m not following my religious duties.In Tunisia, I did the same job and I never had any problems,” she said. “I can’t believe that in France, the country of liberty, that I could be attacked like this.”

The men who attacked her have been identified, but so far haven’t been arrested.
