Ian Brazier Admits Ripping Muslim Woman’s Veil Off in Attack, Blames it on Marijuana

Solihull man admits ripping off Muslim woman’s veil in race attack

A racist thug ripped off a Muslim woman’s veil in a drug-fueled rage after the films he wanted to see were not showing at the cinema.

Farhana Chughtai said she was left humiliated when Ian Brazier pulled off her niqab as she walked with her family through Solihull’s Touchwood shopping center.

Brazier, 26, and from Shirley, pleaded guilty to racially aggravated common assault at Solihull Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

Habib Ahmed, defending, said Brazier took out his fury on the 26-year-old victim after he became “upset” that the two films he had wanted to watch were not showing.

Mr Ahmed said Brazier had smoked two cannabis joints prior to the attack on March 3 this year – claiming it was the first time he had tried the drug – and that he “did not appreciate the effect it would have on him”.

“He directed his anger towards the first person that came across him,” he said. “He has never before made threats to anyone wearing a niqab and had not thought about it. He is clearly remorseful and upset about what he had done.”

Magistrate chairman Tony Tindale said: “We believe the immediate effect of your actions on the victim and the real humiliation she suffered were key points in the offence. It was carried out in public whilst you were under the influence of drugs which are all aggravating factors.”

Mr Tindale ordered for a pre-sentence report to be compiled and for Brazier to reappear at the court for sentencing on July 4.

  1. sad

  2. The last post was deleted because of a problem with the link. It should work fine now.

  3. Ganja makes you mellow. This guy wasn’t mellow.

  4. This guy is an idiot , I swear some people should not be smoking weed , because they turn into incompetent fools.

  5. Weed has nothing to do with racism,in fact weed makes people loosen up, Brazier is a crook who is using the weed excuse to escape hate crime.

  6. I bet that asshole put pcp in his weed.

  7. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say dude was probably a douche bag before he got high too

  8. I got really really high once, started talking to two Etheopian Muslim women walking home. We got on great. Why? Because I’m not an asshole!

  9. Another example of what to say in a UK court. This approach – i don’t know what came over me, judge, it was the weed/likker! – actually works over there.

  10. wtf
