Muslim quits UKIP after online racism

A senior member of Leicester’s UKIP branch has quit claiming he had suffered online racial abuse at the hands of another party supporter. Ismail Patel complained to UKIP bosses about messages he had received on Facebook after making a comment about the crisis in Gaza.

The 26-year-old said party officials did not take action against the alleged offender so he decided to leave and join George Galloway’s Respect party. UKIP has said it was unable to substantiate his complaint with the evidence he initially provided – two screen shots – and had asked him for further information that would prove a UKIP member was responsible.
