Muslim officer sacked from guarding Blair

From The Independent:

An experienced Muslim firearms officer has begun race and religious discrimination proceedings against the Metropolitan Police after he was removed from a close-protection unit guarding senior dignitaries, including Tony Blair. Amjad Farooq, 39, a father of five, was told he was a threat to national security because his children had attended a mosque associated with a Muslim cleric linked to a suspected terrorist group.

The officer was also told that his presence might upset the American secret service which worked closely with the Met's close-protection group

Understandably, Blair is taking no chances. But what about the rest of us? This is the same Blair whose government has allowed Muslim immigration to grow. Who can you trust? The Independent, true to form, goes on to say:

His case raises further concerns about the treatment of Muslim firearms officers working in Metropolitan Police Force.

The reason for this "treatment" being pure Islamophobia?
