A man in his 60s was arrested on January 28 for a racially aggravated public order offence after “abhorrent” footage of a man spewing racist and Islamophobic abuse at a group of hijab-wearing Muslim schoolgirls went viral.

The clip filmed on January 25 shows a group of schoolgirls, many in the hijab, outside the Central Foundation Girls’ School in Bow, East London. In the clip, a man can be heard referring to them as “black c***s with f***** sarees on”.

The footage shows teenagers walking along the road in their uniforms, as a male voice says: “As you can see, this lot coming out the f***** school, all these black c***s here. They’re all going to have four or five kids each. Look at them, these c***s are going to breed like f****** rats.”

The man even cites Nazism and says the girls should be sterilised in an experiment similar to those carried out by Dr Josef Mengele.

Tower Hamlets Mayor, John Biggs, said: “We condemn the use of this inflammatory rhetoric. Tower Hamlets is home to people from all over the world and we are proud of our history which has been enriched by migration. We will always challenge negativity like this and stand up for all our community. The police have been made aware of this”.

In a statement to The Muslim News, a Tower Hamlets Council spokesman branded the video “abhorrent”. Adding, “ The school has plans in place to provide support to any pupil affected by the incident and to provide additional security at the end of the school day in the event that it is needed.”
