London's vibrant diversity

Police were appealing for witnesses today following the attempted murder of a man who was doused in petrol and set on fire in east London.

The 20-year-old, who is fighting for his life in hospital, was torched as he sat in his car in Forest Gate.

It is believed the Hindi [sic] victim, who suffered 65 per cent burns in the attack, was targeted because he was dating a Muslim girlfriend.

He had just parked his car, a green Honda Prelude, in St George’s Road when he was approached by the suspect or suspects and had petrol poured over him before being set alight.


[...]

Two men aged 20 and 21 have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and released on bail.

While this report tells us that the victim was a Hindu, and his girlfriend a Muslim, no details are provided regarding the religious affiliation of his attackers. They could be literally anyone...

There was a stabbing committed by two 'niqab wearing' youths carrying long blades on another youth in Southwark this week too. One arrest - the Met as ever were keeping an open mind on the circumstances.

"..a stabbing committed by two 'niqab wearing' youths.."

Either this was an attempt to conceal their identity, or Muslim society is more diverse than we thought!

Certainly NOT the latter!
