  • arrow_drop_down Manchester, 16 July 2017 - Damage to property / vandalism

    A mosque in Manchester has been gutted by fire after the third suspected arson attack in three years.

    Detectives have launched an investigation into the suspicious blaze that tore through the Nasfat Islamic Centre, in north-east Manchester, at 11.40pm on Sunday.

    Thirty firefighters were called to tackle the fire, the third to hit the building since 2014, according to a mosque spokesman.

    Monsurat Adebanjo-Aremu, the mosque secretary, said it had previously been targeted by vandals who threw two pigs’ heads inside and urinated outside the building in the past year.

    The suspected arson attack is expected to be treated as a possible hate crime by Greater Manchester police, which says it is taking a zero-tolerance approach following a huge spike in Islamophobic incidents since the Manchester Arena attack.

  • arrow_drop_down Cambridge, 08 July 2017 - Physical assault, Verbal abuse / insults

    A series of anti-Muslim attacks on hijab-wearing women on a school-run in Cambridge - including one woman who had a raw egg thrown at her - has prompted a backlash by campaigners.

    The incidents happened as parents were taking their children to Mayfield Primary School in the Carisbrooke Road, Molewood Close and Histon Road area as well as Elizabeth Way.

    In one incident, two men in a car got out and surrounded a Muslim woman wearing a hijab and hurled racist abuse at her leaving her in fear.

    Another incident saw a man on a bicycle call another woman with her head covered an ‘ISIS terrorist'.

    Two men on motorbikes also hurled abuse at a Muslim woman, and in another incident an egg was thrown from a moving car at a woman wearing a hijab.

    Zareen Taj, parent governor at Mayfield School, said: “The first incident was last Wednesday when my friend, who was wearing a hijab, was walking along Molewood Close towards Histon Road and Carisbrooke Road when two men started hurling racist abuse at her.

    “There have been many incidents since against Muslim women wearing the hijab and they are now frightened to go out. As a Muslim woman who wears a hijab myself I know how terrifying this can be.

    “There seems to be some sort of horrible trend going on in the area and I know there has been a spike in such incidents across the country.”

  • arrow_drop_down Worcester, 07 July 2017 - Verbal abuse / insults

    A RACIST yob who shouted vile abuse at a group of Muslims – even asking them if they were “planning a terrorist attack” – has been slapped with a fine.

    Neil Hotchkiss, 44, hurled racist barbs at the group last week, telling them they weren’t welcome in Britain.

    The court heard the victim, street vendor Selasie Clarke, and his friends were chatting outside Mr Clarke’s Jamaican food trailer, Jamaica Wah Gwaan, in Worcester on Friday when Hotchkiss confronted them.

    Mr Clarke said Hotchkiss blew up at them, asking: “What are you doing? Are you planning a terrorist attack?”

    Mr Clarke, who grew up in Jamaica but has lived in England for nearly two decades, said: “Some of the guys were dressed in Muslim attire.

    “We are not typically English looking but two of us are English and two are not.

    “He started to say, ‘your kind are not welcome here, in this country’.”

    “He was ranting on and saying a lot of horrible stuff. It was just horrendous.”

    He added: “It was aimed at Muslims and foreigners. He thought we were foreigners because we are not white. He was so wrong."

  • arrow_drop_down Stockport, 06 July 2017 - Verbal abuse / insults

    Police are investigating allegations a 14-year-old Asian pupil was racially abused outside school gates.

    Mobile phone footage appears to show the chaotic aftermath of the incident outside Priestnall School in Heaton Mersey, Stockport, after lessons on Thursday.

    The girl’s mother says her daughter has regularly been called ‘ISIS’ during an alleged three-year campaign of bullying at the school.

    She has now withdrawn her daughter from the school. Both GMP and Stockport Council are investigating.

    The girl’s mother, Farrah Aftab, 37, from Heaton Chapel, told the M.E.N: “They were saying horrible things, calling her ISIS and saying they were going to break her nose and asking where she was at the time of the Manchester Arena bomb and ‘you are ugly’. It was disgusting.”

    Farrah took video of the aftermath of the incident which sees scores of pupils watching on as tempers fray. Teachers are also seen on the footage. Farrah claims the staff “did nothing” to deal with the situation.

    She said: “It was worse because it happened in front of the teachers and they did nothing about it. My daughter was crying, saying ‘this is what they do to me’.

    "It was racism and disgusting. They are just trying to intimidate her. It’s shocking. I just feel let down. This kind of thing has been going on since she joined the school.”

    The girl admitted the incident had left her ‘scared’.

  • arrow_drop_down Bristol, 04 July 2017 - Physical assault, Verbal abuse / insults

    A man was knocked unconscious after being repeatedly hit around the head with a bike lock in a racially motivated assault.

    Police have described the level of violence used in the unprovoked attack in Bristol city centre as shocking and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

    The incident happened at around 8pm last on Tuesday, July 4 on a Bond Street South traffic island between Phoenix Court and Cabot Circus, when a man riding a bicycle started racially abusing three friends, before going on to attack one of the group with the makeshift weapon.

    The victim, a 31-year-old man, was hit around the head several times before he lost consciousness. He was taken to hospital and required stitches for a facial injury sustained in the attack.

    The offender is described as a white man, around 5′ 6″ tall and in his 30s or 40s.

    Investigating officer PC Isaac Barnett said: “This was a vicious unprovoked attack on an innocent man in a busy area in broad daylight.

    “The level of violence used was shocking, while the words used by the offender prior to this incident clearly indicate it was racially motivated."

  • arrow_drop_down Torquay, 01 July 2017 - Damage to property / vandalism

    A black British woman is living in fear after a neo-Nazi leaflet was left on her car declaring the area a ‘White Zone’ – in Torquay.

    Isatta Kallon, 49, had been enjoying a day out with her family at the Devon resort when she returned to find the offensive note on her windscreen.

    It appeared to be from ‘National Action’ – a far-right UK white supremacist group which was declared a terrorist organisation and banned by the Home Secretary last December.

    The leaflet, showing a masked man performing a Hitler-style salute, also carried the menacing words ‘White Zone’ in large capital letters.

    Sierra Leone-born Isatta believes she was deliberately targeted because hers was the only car in the road that had the message left on it.

    She has lived in Plymouth, Devon, for 20 years and said she has never felt scared to live in Britain before now.

    Isatta said: “At first I didn’t see the sticker but when I did, I thought ‘is this for real?’

    “I definitely think we were targeted as I walked around and looked at all of the other cars which didn’t have stickers.

    “I believe they would have seen us get out of the car.

    “It’s unbelievable and I was really upset about it. I ended up getting really agitated and decided to report it to the police.”

    The incident happened when Isatta, a refugee service coordinator for the Red Cross, left her car parked in Torquay on Saturday (July 1).

    The poster put on Isatta’s car is one which has been seen around various locations in the UK.

    She added: “I was with my family from Sierra Leone who have visited me for the last 20 years of which I have lived in Plymouth."

    A MUSLIM grand­mother was left horrified after two family members faced racist abuse just days after the Finsbury Park Mosque attack last Monday which left one man dead.

    Saiqa Pandor, 47, from Canonbury, who was pictured on the front cover of the New York Times with Jeremy Corbyn following the mosque attack, said her daughter and daughter-in-law suffered two separate incidents of Islamophobic abuse. One took place just off Caledonian Road.

    She said her daughter-in-law, who wears a hijab and does not want to be named as she fears further attacks, had left Caledonian Road tube station and was near Bingfield Street when the abuse happened at around lunchtime last Wednesday. She said three men started hurling racist abuse at her and her two young children, aged two, and four months, who were in a double buggy.

    She said the men called her daughter a “jihadi” and pushed her to the ground.

    “After the attack she couldn’t speak for three hours and was stuttering. She’s absolutely terrified to go out now. To take her children to a drop-in centre she’ll call another member of the family to take her,” said Ms Pandor.

  • arrow_drop_down London, 21 June 2017 - Physical assault

    An unprovoked acid attack on two Muslim cousins in east London is now being treated by police as a hate crime.

    Jameel Muhktar and Resham Khan were attacked while sitting in a car at traffic lights in Beckton on the morning of 21 June while out celebrating Khan’s 21st birthday.

    Both suffered severe burns to the face and body and Muhktar was initially placed in an induced coma. The Metropolitan police named the suspected attacker as John Tomlin, 24, but initially ruled out a religious or racial motive for the crime. However, the Met said on Friday night that new evidence had come to light, prompting them to investigate the assault as a hate crime.

    Acting DS Neil Matthews said police were treating the incident “very seriously”, adding: “This investigation continues to move at great pace and my team continues to act on a number of leads to find Tomlin. I would also appeal directly to Tomlin to make contact with police and hand himself in and would urge anyone who knows of his whereabouts to contact police.”

    Both victims have been left with life-changing injuries. Speaking before police launched their hate crime investigation, Mukhtar said he and his cousin had been targeted because of their religion. “It’s definitely a hate crime,” he told Channel 4 News. “I believe it’s something to do with Islamophobia. Maybe he’s got it in for Muslims because of the things that have been going on lately.

    “I don’t know if people are trying to retaliate. We’re innocent people. We didn’t deserve that. I’ve never seen this guy in my life. I don’t have any problems with anybody. My cousin is 21. She’s a business student. Why would anyone do that to us?”

    Mukhtar said that when a man knocked on the car window, at around 9.15am on 21 June, and sprayed the substance, he thought it was a practical joke. But he then noticed that his cousin was burning, and started to feel his clothes and trainers melting on to his body.

    In terror, he tried to drive off, but, temporarily blinded and in pain, he crashed. Screaming, the pair stripped off and pleaded with local residents for water before being driven to a local hospital.

  • arrow_drop_down Whitley Bay, 20 June 2017 - Physical assault, Verbal abuse / insults

    A brave mum-of-four has revealed how a teenage gang launched a vicious tirade of racist abuse at her, telling her to "get out of our country".

    Kiran Loomba was enjoying her regular evening stroll around the seaside town of Whitley Bay with niece Ranjna Murria on Tuesday when she was victimised.

    She claims she was slapped in the face by a teenage girl so hard her lip was cut and her cheek was bruised during the ordeal, which felt like it "lasted a lifetime".

    The Tesco Bank employee said: "I had seen the group of teenagers coming towards us but we just kept talking between ourselves. They all walked past except this one girl.

    "I’ve seen her hands outstretched and the next thing I know, she just slapped us across the face.

    "My lip started bleeding and I was just in a state of shock. I just stood there and asked ‘what’s your problem?’

    "She said ‘get out of our country you f****** p****’. and they all joined in shouting at us.

    "It was a gang mentality where they stuck together and tried to intimidate us.

    "I rang the police and my niece tried to get pictures, but they started to leg it once they realised we got our phones out."

    She said: "Obviously I don’t feel safe. I have lived here for nearly two decades and all I think now is 'is it safe for me to step outside?'

    “I don’t know whether to go out as we don’t know if we will be assaulted.

    "We’re just hard-working people trying to earn a living and raise our family.

    "This needs to be addressed, something needs to be done to make the streets safer.

    "British people out there feel safe but for people like me, we don’t and that should not be the case."
