A British Muslim recorded the vile moment he was branded a “terrorist” by a businessman in the middle of Piccadilly Circus.

Ahmed Hammad, 32, was riding through London’s West End with his Canadian pal Imran Baig on a motorbike when the suit-wearing pedestrian stepped out into the road and hurled the insult at them. The suited pedestrian walked out into the street and shouted ‘terrorist’ at Ahmed and his pal

Hammad said: “I was showing my friend around London because he was visiting from Canada. He was very disappointed. It was very offensive. I was shocked because he looked like he was going to work.”

The IT specialist added: “I think he got scared after stepping out into the road and just said it.”

Hammad says he reported the incident to the Metropolitan Police on July 24. He also says he has taken the video to the office of London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

London has seen a steep rise in anti-Muslim hate crimes since the Westminster, Manchester and London Bridge terror attacks earlier this year. The number of incidents reported to the Metropolitan Police in the week following the Manchester suicide bombing increased five-fold to 139.
