British Muslim Miss Universe contestant getting hate mailA British woman hoping to become the first Muslim to represent her country in the Miss Universe pageant has gotten "indirect" threats against her life, she told CNN on Thursday.
Shanna Bukhari said she'd received "a lot of support from all communities," but that she got "some hate mail from all communities as well."
"Indirect threats have been made," she said, including video links being posted of men "suggesting things could possibly happen."
While there had been no direct threats against her, she said, "it is upsetting to receive links of certain things that could possibly endanger someone's life."
Bukhari is proud of her origins and her religion, but it's the media that has made her religion an issue, she said.
"My intentions were not to bring my religion into this," she said.
She said she would participate in the swimsuit round of the contest, but would not be "exposing revealing parts of my body."

Big deal. People I deal with bypass the mail and tell me they hate me and what they are going to do to me to my face.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me
