Sydney schoolboy was beaten ‘for being a Muslim’

A schoolboy from Sydney’s north was brutally bashed and verbally abused by more than 20 students for being Muslim, the boy has claimed. Hamid Mamozai, 15, was allegedly hit up to a dozen times by two fellow students at Asquith Boys’ High School on Wednesday as several more cheered and hurled racial abuse from the sidelines.

“[They were saying] hit him more, hit him more, he deserves it, you terrorists, go back to where you came from, go blow something up,” Hamid told Channel 10. He said he was kneed in the face four of five times and hit up to 15 times in the face. Hamid was taken to hospital unconscious and with internal bleeding but suffered no serious injuries.

Najia, Hamid’s sister, said he had been subjected to racial abuse at the school for up to two years and was “emotionally and mentally sick” because of it. “The boy is scared … he doesn’t get out of the house,” she said.

His mother, Hosna, who fled war-torn Afghanistan 20 years ago, said she had repeatedly complained to the school to no effect. “I just want to know why this is happening, why the principal doesn’t care that students are being bullied, why don’t they stop it? I want other parents to know why this is happening,” she said.

Asquith Boys’ High declined to comment last night. In response to inquiries from the Herald, a spokesman for the Department of Education said one student had been suspended for 20 days and the police had been informed. Teachers provided immediate assistance to Hamid and called his family and an ambulance when the incident occurred, the spokesman said. Hamid and his family have been offered counselling and the school has arranged to meet with Mrs Mamozai this morning.

“Racism is not tolerated by Asquith Boys’ High School, which disciplines students engaged in such behaviour and supports students subjected to it,” the spokesman said. “Disciplinary action has been taken against students who have previously used racist language to the injured student. Due to the police investigation, it is inappropriate to comment further on the incident at this stage.”

  1. We used to see and hear that USA society were built on rules and disciplines that help human being and international concerns to protect
    the personal belief and his freedom ,where these tow items ,dictate all, the full faith and love to nation and country as well,,despite that those students abusing the entire decent freedom ,they were bullies no more ,but those may harbour the hostile attitudes toward the others different in race or religion, so there must be change and move actions in the thorough entire administrations to take stern exact disciplines to fix what really going to be spoiled,,,student was brutally beaten for he was merely moslem in the freedom country ,huh,it is joke and jerk to stay silent.

  2. Poor kid. My own sibling and i were bullied for our religion, maybe not beaten, but my brother got unripe and really hard peaches thrown at him. it caused serious bruising. Anyway, I’m really happy some of the parents helped out, I know if a Jewish girl had gotten beaten up by Muslims (sadly political things get in the way of clear thinking) or Christians i would help out, I’d drive her to the hospital myself.

  3. When a child is unconscious with internal bleeding charges need to be filed with the police and expulsion hearings need to take place.

  4. criley

    I know! he’s a kid for crying out loud! Why must kids be subjected to this kind of irrational and horrible abuse?

  5. That makes a change. It’s normally racist and bigoted Muslim gangs beating the snot out of non muslims here in Australia. They even like raping girls because they believe they are “white sluts”.

  6. As an Australian I am ashamed. And this is not Australian. Perhaps too many
    wrong imported films have been watched.

  7. Nigel, that’s an extraordinary claim. And as you know, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

  8. He is referring to a group of Muslim youth in 2009 that were attacking and raping non Muslim girls. I believe this is an isolated incident.

  9. Nigel, if muslims kids did what you pretend they did, then they should have been punished. Now yourself you re acting like an idiot and a kid, according to your standard, the poor boy should paid for others thugs actions (being muslims or not). So this means it gives me the right when i go back home i search for innocent Australians and beat them up?? you are such an idiot

  10. well if criley is right. i remeber when that hit the news. always bad to have gangs roaming and raping, but what i remember as most disturpiing was the reacting from the top muslim in australia. what did he say, if you put uncovered meat out in the alley and a cat comes along and eats it. you don’t blame the cat. something like that.

    http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=38561 criley 2006, or did it happen again in 2009?

    “weapons used by satan.” muslim are funny? oh no, salim is going to say i’m being a kid for that one? yeah this is the culture we should be importing.

    salim, what’s up? have you gotten to those questions yet? how about those websites?

  11. salim,

    where did you get all that from?????? “idiot and a kid, according to your standard, the poor boy should paid for others thugs actions (being muslims or not). So this means it gives me the right when i go back home i search for innocent Australians and beat them up?? you are such an idiot”,,, he said “That makes a change. It’s normally racist and bigoted Muslim gangs beating the snot out of non muslims here in Australia. They even like raping girls because they believe they are “white sluts”.” how old are you?????? you seem to extrapolate quite a bit from one line. i don’t see where he said anything about having a “right” to beat anyone up??????? he may be exagerating but i don’t see how he said that?

  12. Mike, I don’t live in Australia and do not know the number of fights or rapes school children have. But Nigel’s comment is so irritating. if you are going to blame someone then do it basing your judgment on real facts not based on hatred, because if you do that then hell yeah it makes you sound like an idiot.
    Please see the statistical study on rapes. Australia is ranked in fourth positions when in fact the last FOUR countries ranked in the list are Islamic places.

    http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_rap_percap-crime-rapes-per-capita

    From this study, I would say Rape is quite a common thing in Australia, I personally did not know that until now. The reason for this type of crime is maybe people drink a lot and loose their control. I do not know I do not drink I am a Muslim, so I would not know.

  13. Sorry Mike I want to add that after reading through the results of the study which I provided the link in previous comment, one can conclude that Rape is not a common thing in the Islamic world. The reason is that Sex outside marital life is not allowed and is classified as a severe sin, while also as stated in Islam that Hijab (Women dress code in islam), is a protection for our sisters.
    If you had a woman wearing the islamic dress and another one wearing a mini skirt, I bet 1 to 100 you would be looking at one showing off her body.

    Islam is just simple and we see the fruit of this beautiful religion.

  14. Mike, in 2006 it was a group of Muslim men in 2009 it was a gang of Muslim youth targeting non Muslim girls and more than one was attacked.

  15. salim,

    i’m sure rape is quite rare in sharia ruled countries. and i’m sure reported rapes are even more rare. i mean you can have multiple wives, you can marry 12 year olds. i don’t disagree that draconian laws can keep the hoi polloi in line. i just disagree that the ends justify the means. so if a woman in an islamic counrty where to leave the house not in proper dress what should happen to her? and be raped, is there a punishment for her? is she at least partionally to be blamed? so do you agree with what the australian cleric said?

    Islam is just simple and we see the fruit of this beautiful religion.

    you think the opening of the 24th surah, well you’ll see my comment on the honour killing article. so that bangladesia girl got what she deserved?

Have your say!
