ANGRY Muslims want the patriot who banned non-English speaking customers sacked – even though he has been blitzed with fan mail.

Deva Kumarasiri, 40, who came to England 18 years ago, says immigrants should take pride in the UK.

The Sri Lankan’s stance captured the hearts of the nation and earned him the Daily Star’s first-ever Great Brit Award.

The post office worker has received scores of letters and emails from people backing his courage in speaking out.

But yesterday Muslims living near his post office in Nottingham launched a campaign to get him kicked out.

Local mosque chairman Aurangzeb Khan said a petition was circulating among Muslim residents calling for Buddhist Deva to be fired.

OPDATERING: The postmaster who refused to serve customers who could not speak English has been transferred to another branch following complaints from local Muslims.
