Apology demanded as Yahyah Farroukh freed without charge
Saturday 23rd September 2017
Suleman Sarwar, who manages the Aladdins chicken shop in Hounslow, said there had been “abuse, threats, anger, and hatred,” since Yahyah Farroukh was arrested at his place of work last Saturday over the Parsons Green Tube train bombing.
When Mr Farroukh’s mother heard of his arrest, she suffered a heart attack and reportedly remains in a critical condition in a hospital in Egypt after collapsing from shock.
Mr Farroukh, 21, was released without charge on Thursday.
Mr Sarwar is asking for a “fully unreserved apology” from the Metropolitan Police, saying: “The investigation brought Yahyah, his friends, family, place of employment and the wider Muslim community under scrutiny and indignity.
“Once again, the community has received backlash and animosity from the public.”
A spokesperson for anti-Islamophobia campaign group Mend said: “There is no justification for attacking the shop or the owner.
“Mr Farroukh’s release shows that there is no evidence against him to bring charges, so any reactions are unwarranted.”
Mend figures show that Islamophobic hate crimes have increased by around 17 per cent since last year.
In 2016, there were 1,800 such crimes, while there have been 1,260 so far this year.
Met Commissioner Cressida Dick said the bomb on the District line train, which failed to properly detonate but still injured 30 people, had been “packed with shrapnel.”
Eighteen-year-old Ahmed Hassan
an Iraqi orphan, whose parents had been killed in the Iraq war as far as I know
was charged yesterday with attempted murder and possessing explosives over the attack.
He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on October 13.
Police are continuing to question four people, including a 17-year-old boy arrested in Thornton Heath, south London.
A 48-year-old man arrested in Newport has been released without charge.
