These Muslims were put on police forces because they were Muslim, not because they were competent officers. And it is the public that pays the price. The police should be chosen on merit, not so as to pander to a pressure group. Mohamed Noor and Zahra Munye Abu never should have been police officers in the first place. All police hiring based on race or religion rather than on competence ought to be ended immediately.
