Man with tattoo of mosque blowing up arrested for inciting racial hatred

Man with tattoo of mosque blowing up arrested for inciting racial hatred

[Before and after Sean Reah, 39  shows his now alerted tattoo he had of a mosque being blown up]


By Hasnain Hudda


An EDL supporter was arrested on July 20 during a demonstration by the anti-Islam far-right group in Centenary square, Birmingham.

Sean Reah, 39 of South Shields, South Tyneside, was arrested after raising his shirt to the camera showing a tattoo he had of a mosque being blown up.

He was arrested by Northumbria police “on behalf of West Midlands police on suspicion of using words or behavior, or displaying written material with intent to stir up racial hatred.”

He has currently been released on bail as further investigations are conducted regarding the case.

A Twitter user, who was sent the picture of Reah, says she heard the man shouting “no more mosques” as he showed off his inking of a mosque emblazoned with the word ‘BOOM’.

The image sparked outrage after it was posted online. Reah has received hundreds of death threats after he was identified by young Muslims.

Sky sources say he has been forced to flee his house in South Shields and has been in hiding at a friend’s house nearby.

In a YouTube video made after Reah’s arrest, he shows the camera man that the tattoo has been removed, or rather tattooed over.

In the video Reah admits the tattoo “was a daft thing to do” and that he removed it because “it upset everybody.”
