Police investigating ‘hate crime’ after car mounts pavement outside mosque

POLICE are investigating a suspected Islamophobic hate crime after a car hit three people outside a mosque in the early hours of this morning.

A red Nissan Juke mounted the pavement and swerved into bystanders outside the al-Majlis al-Hussaini Islamic centre in Cricklewood, north-west London, where a late-night lecture had just ended.

This is a Shiite Islamic centre.

Officers said the occupants of the car shouted anti-Muslim abuse before driving at a group leaving the centre at about 12.30am this morning.

Two men in their twenties suffered minor injuries and a man in his fifties is in hospital with a serious leg injury, the Metropolitan Police said.

Chief Superintendent Simon Rose said it was “extremely fortunate there was no loss of life,” adding: “It is being dealt with as an Islamophobic hate crime and it is being dealt with as a racist hate crime.”

The incident is not currently being treated as terrorism, the Met said, but detectives are analysing CCTV footage in a bid to trace the driver.

I am a bit afraid that, if this crime would have been perpetrated by a Muslim driver against non-Muslims, then the London Metropolitan Police, and certainly the Rupert Murdoch and other corporate media, would not hesitate one second in labeling it ‘terrorism‘.
