Woman jailed after pulling hijab from victim in racist attack



Published on Tuesday 1 January 2013 00:11

A WOMAN who launched a racist attack against a Muslim and pulled her hijab from her head as she robbed her of her phone has been jailed for more than two years.

Eileen Kennedy, 28, and her 16-year-old niece Paige Bain assaulted Umaimi Musa in Glasgow in September.
The teenager also assaulted Ms Musa’s friend, Mary Marandran, who was five months pregnant with her third child.

The victims were sitting in a playpark when they heard one of the accused make racist comments before they were ­attacked.

The incident was captured on CCTV and the camera operator alerted the police as the incident happened.

Passing a sentence of two years and six days on Kennedy yesterday, Sheriff Kenneth Mitchell told her: “There is no place at all in a modern Scotland for this sort of behaviour.

“This is a very serious matter. Your conduct was wholly unacceptable, and conduct of this sort can only result in a custodial sentence.

“You joined in a sustained attack upon this lady and robbed her of her mobile phone.”

Social work reports had been requested by the sheriff before passing sentence, but Bain’s was not ready. She will return to be sentenced next month.  Read further.

    May Allah make common Muslims in general and Pakistan in particular to learn from it. Amen

  2. I’m glad justice was served. Countries like Pakistan could learn a lot from these western nations where justice is served irrespective of one’s race or religion.

  3. May Allah have His blessings on this just Government. That’s why the Promised Messiah praised the British Government.
