LONDON: A Muslim man was handcuffed and searched by police in London due to ‘wearing too many layers of clothes’ in the hot weather.
A video was posted on the DOAM – Documenting Oppression Against Muslims Facebook page showing a man being stopped by two police officers and a third who is believed to be an undercover officer.
The man filming the video says the man who is being searched is ‘going to the mosque for prayers and is running late.’
In the video the man is seen handcuffed and is searched on the street.
The man who identifies himself as Shamoon is searched for five minutes in public view after eventually being released.
During the film police clarify why they are searching the man.
