Muslim thugs jailed for racist attack
SIX violent east London Muslims are to spend a total of more than 36 years in prison for a violent religious and racist attack in Bow.
Five men and a youth all pleaded guilty to grievious bodily harm with intent.
Their victims were two black men who sustained serious injuries and required hospital treatment following the attack on September 17, 2012.
Ring-leader of the gang, Abu Bakr Mansha, 30, of Dunbar Road, Forest Gate (above) was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment by Inner London Crown Court judge Ian Darling.
Mansha was one of 46 dangerous convicted terrorists who were set to be freed in 2010, according to this report.
The 17-year-old was sentenced to 18 months detention and a training order.
The two victims, aged 40 and 49 at the time, were assaulted by Mansha and the youth at a Tesco store in Bow.
Mansha followed them home after the attack to determine where they lived, and an hour later he and a group of friends returned to assault them once more, using weapons including a baseball bat.
One of the victims sustained a fractured skull and two broken wrists.
Judge Darling, who presided over the case, said:
Not only was there a religious aspect to this offence, but there was an undoubted racial element.
It was reported elsewhere that the victims were targeted for being black and non-Muslim. The judge said:
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.
Meanwhile, it is reported from Seattle in the US that a manhunt has been launched for a Muslim who “executed” two men on June 1. Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young died when Ali Muhammad Brown allegedly shot them dead. Police contend that Said and Anderson-Young met Brown outside a Capitol Hill club after Said contacted Brown through an online search for sex partners.
