Mohammad Hussain Rashwani is a Syrian “refugee” who came to Germany for a better life. He is a skilled hairstylist, and found employment working for a woman who owns a hair salon in Herzberg. He did so well that he was touted as a model of successful “integration” in Modern Multicultural Germany.
Yesterday there was a little integration glitch: Mohammad was unable to resist emulating his namesake, and slit his employer’s throat.
I hardly need to point out that this incident has a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%.
Syrian Hairstylist finds employment in Herzberg
Salon owner Ilona Fugmann is amazed by his skills
August 31, 2016
Herzberg — In early September, Ilona Fugmann will give the Syrian Mohammad Hussain Rashwani a permanent position in her hair salon in Herzberg. The 38-year-old’s skills immediately convinced her. Mohammad Hussain Rashwani is an example of how well integration can work out.
It was late June when Mohammad Hussain Rashwani introduced himself to Kevin Freiwald, the job adviser in charge for refugees at the Elbe-Elster job center in Herzberg. He said he was a hairdresser and was looking for work. Bärbel Meyer of the employers’ service of the job center knew of salons that were looking for good staff. “The demand in Elbe-Elster is very high. There are always three, four hair salons looking for staff,” she said. The job management staff member’s words fell on sympathetic ears with Ilona Fugmann, who had opened a salon in Herzberg in mid July. She wanted to give Mohammad Hussain Rashwani an apprenticeship first. But the ultimate goal was regular employment. “It is very difficult these days to find real good staff in the hairdressing craft. Why shouldn’t I give him a chance?” says Ilona Fugmann.
