Another driver asked a Muslim man ‘where he could buy bombs from’ before making a ‘boom’ gesture with their hands at a set of traffic lights.

The anti-Muslim and Islamophobic incident occurred in West London on June 23.

Speaking to Tell MAMA, the man, who wishes to remain anonymous, consented to have his story told.

He described how the perpetrator, identified as a white male in his mid-to-late forties, had also made a derogatory remark about his prayer cap.

This is another example of the targeting of Muslim men due to their ethnicity and religious clothing where perpetrators have mentioned explosives or bombs in reports to Tell MAMA in recent weeks.

Last week, we reported that a group of Muslim men in the Wakefield area on July 8 were shouted out by a neighbour when delivering furniture to an address which referenced a bomb.

The Metropolitan Police is investigating.
