Edinburgh University investigates student for Islamophobic Hate Crime of mocking ISIS

A law student is under investigation by his university after allegedly mocking ISIS on social media and ‘putting minority students at risk and in a state of panic’.

Robbie Travers is being probed by Edinburgh University amid claims he committed a ‘hate crime’, despite no criminal investigation by the police.

The 21-year-old third-year student wrote a Facebook post after the US Air Force bombed an ISIS stronghold in Afghanistan in April.

However his comments sparked a complaint from fellow student Esme Allman, who accused him of ‘blatant Islamaphobia’.
