UK: Muslim faces jail for racist tirade at Catholic school teachers

A Muslim father who racially abused teachers and assaulted a headmaster after two Islamic pupils were banned from lessons for refusing to shave off their beards faces jail.

Mohammad Liaqat, 34, launched into a ‘racist tirade’ at white members of staff at Mount Carmel Roman Catholic High School in Accrington, Lancashire, after 14-year-old boys were told they could not keep their facial hair, police said.

After being arrested, Liaqat was told to stay away from the school, so went to another school nearby where he continued his rant.
