Six racist Muslim thugs have been jailed for 36 years (total, not for each) after bludgeoning two men nearly to death because they were black and non-Muslim.
UK Daily Mail (h/t Maria J) Ringleader Abu Bakr Mansha – who was previously jailed under the Terrorism Act for plotting to kill or harm a decorated soldier – was with a teenage boy when the pair began the unprovoked attack at a busy Tesco store in Bow, east London. He assaulted the two victims before following them home to discover where they lived – then called four other thugs to help.
The Inner London Crown Court heard there was both a religious element and a racial element to the attack on the two men, who were black and non-Muslim. The vicious assault sparked an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s counter-terrorism command.
All six of the attackers, who the Met Police confirmed were Muslim, pleaded guilty to grievous bodily harm with intent. Judge Ian Darling said: ‘Not only was there a religious aspect to this offence, but there was an undoubted racial element. ‘Both prior to and after the attack, Mr Mansha is heard to use language that is foul, unacceptable and which reveals a degree of racial intolerance that is worrying.’
