What was supposed to be a festive moment turned into a real nightmare for the Bukhari family. On Saturday September 12, everyone went to a hypermarket in Seclin (North) to buy a cake on the occasion of the birthday of Adel, 19, a young man with autism. He does not wear a mask, as the law allows. However, the security then the director forbid him entry. While Karima Boukhari, the mother, reminds the director that she is “outlaw”, this one answers him “the law, in my store, I make it”.
Parents file a complaint
Understanding the situation, Adel takes refuge in the car. “He was banging against the glove box”, remembers Kadda Boukhari, his father. “We were put lower than the earth”, laments the mother, very moved. Still shocked, the parents decided to file a discrimination complaint. The store management apologized in a statement, but the parents intend to fight this fight to the end to “the dignity of their son”.
