Let off lightly in my opinion.

Four Muslim men were jailed today after they carried out a brutal attack on an RE teacher because they did not approve of him teaching religious studies to Muslim girls.

Gary Smith, 38, received "appalling injuries" after he was set upon by the gang as he walked to work at Central Foundation Girls' School in Bow, east London, on July 12 last year.

Armed with a metal rod and a brick, they punched, kicked and attacked Mr Smith, leaving him unconscious and covered in blood on the pavement in Burdett Road, Tower Hamlets.

From what I’ve read in the last few months, is that Tower Hamlets is fast becoming a no go area for those who are not of the Islamic persuasion. Andre Gilligan did a piece on the East London Mosque for dispatches. There’s a clip HERE.

Anyway to continue, I’ll name names.

Simon Alam, 19, of Whitechapel, Azad Hussain, 26, of Wapping, Sheikh Rashid, 27, of Shadwell, and Akmol Hussein, 26, of Bethnal Green, all in east London, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent earlier this year.

And of course they are supporters of the “Religion of Peace”.

At least the Judge had the balls to speak his mind.

Sentencing them at east London's Snaresbrook Crown Court, Judge John Hand QC said he believed they all remained a danger to the public due to their extreme religious beliefs.

Addressing the defendants one by one, he said: "Your belief is that you carried out a duty to your God and you did so with no mercy.

"If you think that people around you in society present an insult or threat to God then you will not hesitate in attacking again in the way that you have acted."

However as usual, the sentence length is pathetic.

He said he deemed Akmol Hussein, a social worker and self- employed builder, and Azad Hussain, a finance worker, to have played the greatest role in the planning and execution of the attack and sentenced them each to an indeterminate sentence with a minimum of five years.

Student Alam was told he must serve a minimum of five years in prison before being released on licence for a further five years, while bus driver Rashid was handed a four-year sentence with a further five years on licence.

A fifth defendant, Badruzzuha Uddin, 24, also of Shadwell, was also jailed for two years after previously admitting a charge of assisting an offender after he hid the men's bloodstained clothes.

Bearing in mind that they’ll probably be out before serving half their sentence for.

Mr Smith suffered multiple injuries, including lacerations and bruising all over his body, has a permanent 12cm long deep scar across his left cheek, and how the whole of the facial part of his skull was broken.

They should have got ten years each.





  1. At least 10, we want teachers to be protected from this sort of thing.

    The EDL plan their next march in Tower hamlets, should be an interesting day.

  2. Of course they will be made out to be the villains, whilst the poor defenseless muslims will be held up as paragons of virtue.

  3. I'm actually beginning to believe that these people don't just need to grow up but they need to evolve

    They should still be living in a jungle wearing foliage for a couple hundred years before joining civilised society.

  4. Let them enjoy their own religion's punishment - an eye for an eye. I'm sure there would be no shortage of volunteers to give them a taste of their own medicine....

    Oh....sorry, I forgot - that would bring us down to their level. But they think they are so fucking superior, so what's the problem?

  5. Not disagreeing but I was slightly surprised when I got to the bottom and found they got as long as they did. Probably says more about the low expectations that so many soft sentences have led me to have that as soon as pathetic sentences were mentioned I was expecting under 18 months.

    Incidentally, I may be wrong but I think an "indeterminate sentence with a minimum of five years" might actually mean what it says and that they will do at least five years inside. Still light for what they did but at least those three that got minimum prison time won't be out in half that.

  6. Well hopefully they'll see the error of their ways. Somehow I doubt it.

  7. I doubt it too.

    Word verification= "trash". No, really. Sometimes I think Blogger does it on purpose.
