British Army releases new advert showing Muslim soldier praying as it defied critics
London (UNA-OIC) – The British Army has released a new advert film showing a Muslim soldier praying as it defied critics of an inclusive recruitment campaign.
The new film, called ‘Keeping My Faith’, shows a soldier taking off his helmet and kneeling down in prayer while his comrades wait respectfully nearby.
It is the latest step in the Army’s ‘This is Belonging’ campaign, which has featured adverts telling recruits they are allowed to be emotional, Mail Online reported.
In the latest video, the Muslim soldier is shown washing his face and using a prayer mat while his colleagues keep quiet.
The caption ‘This is Belonging’ appears as the soldier gets up again and the squad moves on with its hillside patrol.
