Adil Basharat: Victim of Hate Crime or Random Violence?

One of our readers, Jalal, emailed us to inform us of what he believes is a hate crime. He was a friend of the victim, and this is what he had to say to us,

i want you to know of a hate crime that took place in the UK just a few days back, we had a mutual friend so I’m sending this to you,

Boy injured in Deanshanger group attack dies


A 16-year-old boy critically injured in an attack in a Northamptonshire village has died in hospital.

Adil Basharat, of Milton Keynes, was assaulted in Stratford Road, Deanshanger, at 1100 GMT on Friday.

He died in Milton Keynes General Hospital on Sunday morning. Police said they had received no indication that the attack was racially motivated.

A 21-year-old man and three men aged 19 have been charged with Adil’s murder and are due in court on Monday.

The men are from Deanshanger, nearby Cosgrove and Stony Stratford in Buckinghamshire, and will appear at Northampton Magistrates’ Court.

Police appealed for anyone with information to contact them.

A tribute page on Facebook to Adil has been visited by thousands of people, some of whom have been leaving photographs and messages about the teenager.

this has not been mentioned in the mainstream much but this WAS a hate crime, he was attacked for being a pakistani muslim. i am telling you this as a certified fact,

It would not surprise us if indeed this was a hate crime considering the pervasive atmosphere of Islamophobia and the rise of such anti-Muslim hate groups as the EDL in Britain and Europe in general.

    This had nothing to do with drugs. This is a claim that if made by the men involved will be challenged by Adil’s family in court. The truth will come out during the trial and that is that Adil had no involvement in drugs. He did umrah when he was 15. He prayed, was extremely respectable to all, hugely popular and loved by everyone. Most of his friends were non muslims. He did nothing wrong and no one has a bad word to say about him. He was extremely blessed and died a martyr’s death. His name cannot be tarnished as he was pure. This will inevitably come out during his trial therefore as somebody who knew and loved Adil I would ask that people stop coming up with their own theories. Adil was on break at school when he was murdered. It could be your child or loved one next so I would urge you to think befor you post such ludicrious comments.
