Birmingham: Bank suspends employees for mocking IS-style execution

islamic state criticism

London: Six employees of a bank were dismissed for filming an Islamic State-style mock execution of an Asian colleague in the British city of Birmingham, media reported on Tuesday.

The six people, who worked in HSBC Bank, posted the eight-minute mock beheading video on Instagram that showed five men in black clothes laughing as they stand over an Asian colleague who is kneeling in an orange jumpsuit, the Daily Mail reported.

One of the employees shouts “Allahu Akbar” as an “executioner” and brandishes a coat hanger as a fake knife.

“We do not tolerate inappropriate behavior. We took the decision to sack the individuals involved. This is an abhorrent video and the bank would like to apologise for any offence caused,” a bank spokesperson said.
