Ridiculously low sentence for Muslim extremist Mohammed Bashir from Oldham, Greater Manchester. Drugged up Bashir posted an advert on Gumtree offering £1000 to whoever beheaded the person responsible for robbing the mosque he attends. Posting a CCTV image of the robber. The magistrates strangely did not think that inciting murder was serious enough offence to send him to prison, preferring to sentence him to a lame 80 hours unpaid work. Another Muslim criminal who will be laughing his head off at Britain’s 2 tier justice system.
A dad has escaped jail after offering a £1,000 reward for the BEHEADING of a man who raided a mosque.
Mohammed Bashir, 26, uploaded the vulgar advert after robbers targeted his place of worship. A court was told he was high on cannabis when he placed the ads in a ‘moment of madness’.
The day after the incident at the Jamia Masjid mosque in Werneth, Oldham on January 4 he wrote two posts on the advertising website Gumtree.
Titled “Reward Beheading” and “Werneth Reward” they contained a CCTV image of a suspect taken from the Mosque’s Facebook page and offered a £1,000 reward to behead them, a court was told.
They were spotted by a member of the public who took screenshots and reported them to police, Kerry Bell, prosecuting said.
Officers traced the posts back to Bashir and he admitted the offence after being arrested.
A court heard the posts raised fears of extremism within Oldham’s Muslim community – however Bashir’s lawyer insisted he was not a religious extremist, or a terrorist.
He told police in interview that he was high on cannabis when he wrote the posts and he removed them after just 15 minutes.
Nailia Akhtar, defending said dad-of-two Bashir had already experienced great trauma in his life after the death of his young daughter in March 2013. Eliza Bashir died after accidentally swallowing a battery.
She said: “He clearly didn’t think his actions through as he used his own Gumtree account and his own mobile phone meaning he was quite easy to trace. His actions have been condemned his wife, his family and the mosque.
“It’s had a negative impact on surrounding mosques as it highlights the extremism linked to Islam.
“It’s quite clear this man has no history of extremism and he doesn’t have any inclination of religious motivation.
“This has put his job in jeopardy and the safety of his family at risk.”
Bashir, of Monmouth Street, Oldham pleaded guilty to using a public communication network to send an offensive or menacing message at an earlierwas today ordered to do 80 hours of unpaid work at Oldham Magistrates court.
He also has to pay £145 in costs.
Chairman of the bench Kathleen Kershaw said: “This was a serious offence, especially in the climate at the moment.
“We accept this was a moment of madness for which you have shown great remorse.”
After the incident the mosque posted on their Facebook page saying: “Please be careful with what you say on Facebook, Twitter etc. regarding what happened today/last night at the masjid about the robbery.
“Please don’t make threats about the person online as it could cause complications in the case.
“We are all outraged at this despicable crime but we must act with cool heads and wisdom.
“The last thing we want is one of our own getting in trouble for something they may have said in (justified) anger.”
