A troubling incident of racism came to light at Lancaster University when Sa’ad Mustafa, a 25-year-old student, shared his harrowing experience of being forced to pay for a replacement door after someone defaced it with a racist slur.
‘Dead Mum” and Racial Slur
Sa’ad reveals in the video that someone had written a disgraceful racial slur on his door, along with the words “Dead Mum,” in a shocking revelation that has sent the internet into a frenzy.
Sa’ad bravely reported the incident in July 2018 while pursuing his Management and IT degree at Lancaster University.
The incident itself occurred in February of the same year. However, instead of receiving the support and empathy he deserved, Sa’ad was met with a dismissive and deeply troubling response from the university.
Sa’ad found himself evicted from his room as a result of the incident.
His Hopes of Justice Were Shattered
To add insult to injury, the university also charged him for the replacement door and the new accommodation.
Sa’ad expresses the stress that this financial burden put on his shoulders as he questions the university and the police’s handling of the situation.
Sa’ad’s hopes of justice were shattered when the investigation was dropped after a just two weeks.
To make matters even more bewildering, Sa’ad was told that he needed to offer an apology if he wished to continue his studies.
He Issued a Cautionary Warning
In a courageous act of speaking out, Sa’ad has shared his experience in a viral video, issuing a cautionary warning to individuals of color considering attending Lancaster University.
Despite the mistreatment, Sa’ad expresses a genuine desire to assist the university in addressing the issue of racism on campus.
He even offers to take on a paid role to contribute to positive change within the institution actively.
“This Is a Horrifying Experience No One Should Have To Go Through”
“I’m sorry you experienced this, this is a horrifying experience no one should have to go through…I hope Lancaster uni does better in the future!” One user tells Sa’ad in an act of defiance.
“This is unacceptable. Sorry you had to go through that, man,” another user reacted.
How could the university have better dealt with the situation? We want to hear your thoughts in the comments.
