Mohammad Hoque fined £75 for kicking an anti-mosque protestor

Imagine if it had been the other way around, do you think an anti-mosque protestor would get away with a £75 fine for kicking a Muslim? I doubt it!

A man who attacked a member of the far-right at a demonstration against the building of a mosque in Sunderland has been fined.

Mohammad Hoque, 19, of Hendon Valley Road, Sunderland, kicked a male protestor in the back before swiftly being restrained by police, Sunderland Magistrates Court heard.

Around 200 people attended the pre-planned demonstration on St Mark’s Road in Millfield on Saturday, October 6 2012, where a former council transport depot is being converted into a mosque for up to 150 Pakistani Muslims.

The English Defence League and Scottish Defence League were among the protesters. A group of Muslims and locals and the Sunderland Anti-Fascist Coalition also attended a counter-demo.

    Guarantee that if a white guy had kicked the muslim in the back, he would be receiving a jail sentence. Its so wrong, they literally get away with murder.
