A Daily Mail article posted on Friday 4th June has labelled the Manchester town of Didsbury as a “no-go” zone for white people.
The article in question is titled “British towns that are no-go areas for white people: Muslim author’s study of mosques reveals children ‘attacked for being white’, parents making families live under Taliban-like rules and women who can’t leave home without permission”.
Author Ed Husain makes many allegations against Didsbury mosque in the article, none of which bear any significant substance.
The article also accuses Bolton of being a “different universe”.
Many Twitter users have found immense amusement at the inclusion of Didsbury in this list…
Didsbury 😂😂😂😂 Even a 30-second Google would reveal that the only thing that Didsbury is a no-go zone for is non-organic produce. pic.twitter.com/MwwPKzSA1u

Didsbury is 92 % white and the mosque on Burton Road is probably the most community based religious places I’ve ever witnessed . They Even opened up their premises for vaccine provision to all mcr people in Didsbry . Who writes this nazi shit . https://t.co/3cApmlBDXO

Seriously? If Didsbury were any whiter it'd burn your corneas. https://t.co/tj0PqHqe3P

State of this article. Didsbury Mosque "was once a church", hint hint.
To be exact, it was a Methodist chapel… til 1965. According to https://t.co/hP6lCnORRw Tesco wanted the site, but the Methodists chose a buyer who'd use the building for worship. It became a mosque in 1967. https://t.co/HV1jVHVQ92
