An influential Muslim who advises the Government on combating terrorism will not face charges, despite stabbing a man at his home.
Prosecutors have decided that Inayat Bunglawala acted in self-defence when a drunk turned up at his £300,000 house in Luton, Bedfordshire, in the early hours of the morning.
After a scuffle, the 25-year-old man was left bleeding from six knife wounds to his back, requiring emergency surgery that confined him to hospital for four days.
But the Crown Prosecution Service has accepted Mr Bunglawala’s version of events and has dropped the case – to the immense anger of the injured man and his family.
This really does take the biscuit. A violent intruder tries to smash his way into Inayat’s house and physically attacks him, and Inayat defends himself and his family. Yet the Mail – that well-known upholder of law and order – takes the side of the violent intruder! The Mail‘s own readers don’t buy that one. Check the comments below the article and you’ll find the majority take Inayat’s side.
You can just imagine how differently the Mail would report the story if the situation were reversed and a violent Muslim intruder had attacked a white householder.
