London (QNN)- The British racist behind a “Punish a Muslim Day”, which incited attacks on Muslims, who also sent a letter to a US mass murderer, praising his ‘ethnic cleansing’, a court heard on Monday.
David Parnham, 36, sent hate filled letters to Muslims across the country, which resulted in ‘fear and paranoia spreading across Muslim communities’.
He also sent hundreds of hate filled letters to the Queen of the United Kingdom, David Cameron, and Theresa May between June 2016 and his arrest on 12 June last year.
Parnham also praised white supremacist Dylann Roof, who murdered nine black parishioners in Charleston, South Carolina, in December 2016, the Old Bailey heard.
He admitted offences including soliciting murder, encouraging crime, bomb and noxious substance hoaxes and sending letters with intent to cause distress.
In early 2018, a series of typed “Punish A Muslim Day” letters were sent out to encourage violence on the date of an American white supremacist’s birthday.
The letters claimed Europe and North America was being “overrun” by Muslims and contained a makeshift scorecard for attacks ranging from pulling off women’s headscarves to acid attacks, torture, bombing a mosque and “butchering” Muslims with guns, knives and vehicles.
Judge Anthony Leonard QC said Parnham had been suffering from an autistic spectrum disorder but rejected the suggestion he was psychotic at the time of the offences.
