A 43-year-old British salon owner was arrested after refusing service to “anyone from the Islamic faith.”

The move came after April Major, the owner of Blinks Of Bicester, made the incendiary announcement on the salon’s Facebook page in the wake of Paris attacks.

The Facebook post, now deleted, read: "Blinks of Bicester are no longer taking bookings from anyone from the Islamic faith whether you are UK granted with passport or not. Sorry but time to put my country first.”

The post drew outrage on social media with users calling for a ban on her business.

According to the 2010 Equality Act, businesses are prohibited from refusing service on the basis of religion.

Even though Major was taken into custody for her hate-mongering comments on social media, she is yet to be charged.
