Man to go on trial accused of ripping niqab off Muslim woman in a shopping centre

Post by Irn Bru on Tue Aug 16, 2016 5:21 pm

A man has denied ripping a niqab off a Muslim woman in a shopping centre and shouting religious abuse.

Peter Scotter, 55, is charged with a religiously aggravated common assault on the woman, who was waiting for her husband outside a store in Sunderland’s The Bridges shopping centre with her nine-year-old son last month.

Scotter, of Beach Street, Roker, Sunderland, is accused of walking purposefully up to her, grabbing her niqab, causing her to almost fall forward, and leaving her with neck pain.

Scotter is alleged to have shouted abuse based on the woman’s religion during the incident, which is alleged to have happened at 3.30pm on July 3.

Well its a good point, as in this case the person went to the Police on a hate crime, where in the other, they think a busy bus or tube is now Islamophobia.
