London, June 24 (ANI): A British Muslim cop has complained to an employment tribunal that his boss allegedly said that he looked like terror mastermind Osama bin Laden.

PC Tariq Dost, 40, said force recruitment manager Darren Yates compared his beard to the al-Qaeda leader’s, and referred to Muslim prayers as “shouting and wailing”.

The officer, from Birmingham, also said Yates laughed at his off-duty Islamic clothing and said: “You look like a terrorist.”

PC Dost claims racial and religious discrimination against West Midlands Police, saying: “I feel betrayed by the force.”

The hearing in Birmingham continues, The Sun reports. (ANI)
