Chris Herbert lost his leg in 2007, after a roadside bomb exploded next to his British Army vehicle in Basra, Iraq

Aged just 19 at the time, he also had to deal with the loss of his best friend, who died in the attack

Since the traumatic experience, he’s been continuously asked one question

So he decided to explain his feelings in an honest and powerful Facebook post

The post went viral as people pushed back against anti-Muslim sentiment in the UK

Chris has managed to retain a positive outlook on life, and refuses to let people drag him down

When an Islamophobic group tried to recruit him as a mascot for their organisation, it was the final straw

And he just had to speak out

People’s responses were mixed on the whole, but mostly positive
