65-year-old British man gets thrown in jail for asking McDonald’s Muslim employee an alleged “racist” question
An elderly McDonald’s customer has been jailed for 12 weeks for his ‘racist’ rant (what ‘race is Islam?) after asking a Muslim employee behind the counter if he was going to chop off his head. (A fair question considering that Muslims chop off heads all the time, even in the streets of London)
UK Mirror An inebriated Patrick Maughan (photo below) would not stop harassing the assistant manager of the restaurant by making reference to the typical Muslim beheadings ISIS-style. To make matters worse, the 65-year-old then mimicked the way Muslim people pray – lifting their asses in the air to Allah.
Upon appearing at Crawley Magistrates’ Court last week, Maughan pleaded guilty to the unprovoked attack towards Mohamed Mahroof and security guard Mansoor Bahar in June. He was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison for the racist rant (What ‘race’ is Islam?) at a branch in Langley Green, West Sussex.
Melanie Wotton, prosecuting, said: “At about 7pm Maughan went into McDonald’s where Muslim Mr. Mahroof was working as an assistant manager and Muslim Mr. Bahar as a security guard.
“Maughan leaned over the counter and read Mr Mahroof’s name badge before asking him ‘Are you Mohamed?’ and adding ‘Are you a Muslim‘? “Mr Mahroof responded by saying ‘yes’ and when Maughan asked him again he ignored him. “Maughan then said ‘I’m Christian, you are a Muslim, do you want to chop off my head’? and he made a gesture across his throat to show a beheading.”
He was asked to leave, but after turning away, he returned to the counter to harass Mohamed some more. Ms Wotton added: “Speaking to Mr Mahroof, Maughan again said ‘You Muslim, you want to chop off my head’. “He then knelt down and pretended to pray to mimic how a Muslim would pray.”
Maria Kempshall, chair of the bench of magistrates, said: “These offenses are so serious only a custodial sentence can be justified.
“These were aggravated offenses of harassment of a racial nature (What ‘race’ is Islam?) against two people carrying out their employment in a public place.
