The Daily Record and Mirror report on CCTV footage allegedly showing a man engage in anti-Muslim abuse and threatening behaviour on a two year old Pakistani burns victim in Glasgow.
Toddler orphan, Muhammad Sudais, moved to Glasgow in 2014 after an explosion at his home in Pakistan killed his parents and brother and left him with severe burns. He was affectionately adopted as “Scotland’s baby” after moving to Glasgow to be cared for by his uncle, Mohammed Asif.
The two year old was out playing in his garden last Friday (29 April) when the man allegedly directed racist abuse and threats at him and his family.
The toddler’s aunt and uncle who were present during the attack told the Daily Record that the man threatened them and the young child saying “I’m going to f****** bomb you and your house!” and “[I’ll] f****** kill that child.”
The man is said to have uttered racial and religiously aggravated abuse using offensive words against Muslims and telling the family to “f*** off back to where you come from.”
Mohammed Asif told the Daily Record that a neighbour’s CCTV cameras recorded the alleged incident.
He said: “We’ve lived here for years and never had problems, let alone someone wanting to bomb our house or kids.
“Our main concern is baby Mohammad. He’s playing in the garden most of the time.
“Most people know who he is and people often stop and say hello to him because he’s quite entertaining. But now we’ve been advised not to let him out alone any more.
“It was very scary for my wife and daughters. They worry about meeting the man in the street.”
The Daily Record has issued a plea to readers to help identify the man. The paper urges readers to help catch “this moron before he terrorises another family.”
