A Muslim man intentionally drove his van into 5 people during Ramadan last year. Lugman Aslam, 26, had an argument with the men before mowing them down. Although there were a lot of minor injuries, no one was killed as a result of the attack.
Aslam’s motive for the attack? He claims the other men were racist against him.
Judge Justin Wigoder actually praised Aslam. He said he was “a good family man” who was behaving “completely out of character.”
Apparently, this ‘good family man’ got into an altercation with five guys and backed his van into one of them. After fleeing from the scene, he came back with the van. This time, he plowed into the five men.
Although the attack was intentional and Aslam intended to cause harm to the men, the judge banned him from driving for four and a half years and further sentenced him to five years in prison.
With good behavior, Aslam could be out in two to three years.
Right Wing News reports:
A Muslim van driver deliberately took a van, mounted the pavement and drove into five men who he was ticked off at. He claims they were racist against him while he was observing Ramadan. Lugman Aslam, who is 26, was involved in a fight with the men before mowing them down in Leicester city center. That’s in England. Amazingly, no one was killed. Lots of bruising, etc., but no serious injuries. This happened on June 28th last year. The real story is how a judge just addressed the crime. SMH.
