UK subway stabbing: Muslim taxi driver admits trying to stab commuters


A SOMALIAN taxi driver has admitted trying to stab four people during a frenzied attack in front of horrified commuters at Leytonstone Tube station.

But Muhaydin Mire, 30, denied beating a 56-year-old man unconscious and hacking at his neck during the same attack at the east London station on December 5 last year. Appearing at London’s Old Bailey via videolink from prison, the former Uber taxi driver denied one count of attempted murder but admitted four counts of attempted wounding during a frenzied five minute attack.

    His diversity enriched us.

    • I feel very diverse.

      I’m glad nobody criticized his culture or we would all be called racists!

        They ‘disrespected’ his culture by wilfully remaining ‘kufr’ (non-muslim), thereby oppressing his rights as a muslim. And, as written in Qur’an 2:191, “oppression is worse than slaughter”. Doesn’t he have a right to pursue his religion as a matter of ‘religious freedom’?

    “Attempted wounding”. The sharia-approved and halal version of “attempted murder”. The muslim totalitarian supremacists do indeed have their own set of rules for us infidels.

    As he’s a taxi driver, maybe Kate at SDA won’t run it as one of the “taking mass transit is like inviting 20 random hitchhikers into your car” pieces!
