Outside the Maasha’Allah internet cafe, Mohammed Hussain raised his voice over the recorded Quranic verses blaring from the abaya shop two doors down. He was furious that Britain’s latest terrorist attacker had amplified his city’s stigma.
“Why do all the jihadis come to Birmingham?” He half-shouted, prompting a passing group of teenage girls in bright colored headscarves to frown, then giggle.
"Unfairly or Not, London Attack Points to Birmingham as a Haven for Radicals" is from the March 26, 2017 World section of The New York Times. It was written by Katrin Bennhold and Kimiko de Freytas-Tamura and narrated by Caroline Miller.
