Three men jailed for their part in protests against cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad have won an appeal to reduce their sentences. Umran Javed, 27, and Abdul Muhid, 24, were initially jailed for six years each for soliciting to murder after telling a crowd to bomb the UK.
FOUR Muslims who raged in Britain against Danish newspaper cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed were jailed for a total of 22 years yesterday. They had joined 500 demonstrators outside the Danish Embassy in London 17 months ago, calling for terror atrocities. Judge Brian Barker told them at the Old Bailey: “You subjected the multicultural citizens of London to a constant barrage of hatred.” Abdul Muhid, 24, of Whitechapel, East London; Umran Javed, 27, of Birmingham, and Mizanur Rahman, 24, of Palmers Green, North London, got six years each for inciting murder. Abdul Saleem, 32, of Poplar, East London, got four years for race hate.
