Motoon protestor convicted of race hate
Mizanur Rahman, the website designer who joined in with the al Ghurabaa Motoons protestors outside the Danish embassy in February this year, has been convicted of inciting racial hatred. The jury could not decide whether carrying a placard reading “BEHEAD THOSE WHO INSULT ISLAM” constituted incitement to murder, so there is likely to be a retrial.
Rahman had earlier confessed that he was “almost ashamed” of what he had said during the protest. (The BBC reported that he had apologised, but gave no evidence to back up its headline.)
Oh Allah, we want to see another 9/11 in Iraq, another 9/11 in Denmark, another 9/11 in Spain, in France, all over Europe.
Bomb, bomb France. Bomb, bomb France. Nuke, nuke France. Nuke, nuke France.
As Rahman explained in his defence, “the majority of this was a prayer”.
He has been remanded in custody while the prosecution decide whether there will be a retrial.
UPDATE: The CPS has decided to retry Rahman on the incitement to murder charge. The retrial will probably take place in January.
