Muslim Miss Italy contestant threatened

Ahlam El Brinis.

Ahlam El Brinis, an immigrant from Marocco living near Treviso, in North-Eastern Italy, will take part to the pre-final of Miss Italy in Jesolo.

Just like most contestants, she is already working as a model, something posing in alluring clothes.

She is a non-practicing Muslim, but that was enough to draw insults, criticism and even threats which were conveyed by the social networks.

Miss El Brinis’ family supports her career. She is used to being attacked, and not only by Muslims. In 2013, when she won a local beauty contest, she was criticized for “stealing” the prize from the Italian contestants.

In 2006 Hina Saleem, a Pakistani girl living near Brescia, was killed by her own family for adopting the Western way of living and for her relationship with an Italian Catholic boy.
