Radical Sunni Muslims are facing jail for attacking a group of Shi’ites in what is believed to be the first case of Muslim sectarian violence on the streets of Britain.
Violence broke out on London’s Edgware Road, a well-known Shia area, on May 10 last year during a protest organised by radical preacher Anjem Choudary calling for jihad in Syria.
Two men were beaten to the ground with placards and wooden sticks. One was so badly injured he had blood streaming down his face after being kicked in the head as he lay helpless on the floor.
Ginger-haired Jordan Horner, 20, part of the Sunni sect, attacked a man after calling him a ‘kaffir’, or non-believer.
Other members of the Sunni group including Mohammed Almagir, 34, Mirza Ali, 38, Mohad Uddin, 36, and Kamran Khan, 29, also joined in.
Alex Chalk, prosecuting, told the Old Bailey that the group were shouting ‘Shias are kaffirs. They are the enemy within. They are evil’ as they carried out the attack.
He said: ‘This is a case about sectarian violence in west London.
‘On Friday May 10, 2013, these defendants attended an unauthorised anti-Shia march advertised on Twitter.
‘The protestors, several of whom were carrying banners bearing inflammatory anti-Shia slogans, passed along Edgware Road – an area well known for its established Shia community.
‘They were carrying placards calling for jihad in Syria and were publicising their intention to march to the Syrian Embassy.
‘Shortly after the marchers turned around at the Marble Arch end and retraced their steps northwards, violence broke out.
‘Two men were assaulted with fists and flagpoles. One was beaten on the ground, and the other, Fahad Fahad, was left with blood streaming from a wound to his head.’
The violence broke out while Anjem Choudhary was being interviewed on camera by a journalist.
The court heard a group of up to 50 protestors congregated outside London Central Mosque after the conclusion of Friday prayers at 2pm.
