A British Army veteran who lost his leg while on tour in Iraq has lashed out on Facebook attacking Islamophobia.

Chris Herbert was 19 when he lost his leg while serving in the British Army in Iraq and was tired of people assuming that he was anti-Muslim because of his injury. The breaking point for him came when someone tried to get him to participate in ‘anti-Muslim propaganda’ which lead him to hit back with a post on his Facebook page, that has since gone viral and has been shared more than 170,000 times.
