Stories of violence between Hindus and Muslims on the Indian Subcontinent have become commonplace over the past few years. However, clashes at Leicester are a manifestation of the recent rise in sectarian violence.
Speaking on Tuesday in regards to the violence, the mayor of Leicester — one of Britain’s most multicultural — claimed that issues from abroad had been imported into the city, with the official claiming that even many of those arrested in relation to the violence were not actually from the city at all.
Online videos purportingly to depict clashes between Hindus and Muslims in the region, along with gangs consisting of Hindu men and Muslims shouting sectarian and religious slogans have been circulated.
Breitbart London was unable to verify the authenticity of these videos so they have been linked for informational purposes only.

One video posted by Hindustan Times and Independent journalist Sunny Hundal purportedly shows Mohammed Hijab — an extremely prominent British Muslim influencer with nearly 600,000 subscribers on Youtube alone — speaking to a gang of masked men about challenging “Fascist Hindutva Thugs”If they are on the streets, “act like gangsters” “come out like that again”.
They began to chant, with at least one man wearing a full face balaclava. “Allahu Ackbar” seemingly in response to the prominent influencer’s speech.
Another ‘activist’ Mohammed Hijab is looking for power and telling his audience of masked guys:
“If they (Hindus) believe in reincarnation, what a humiliation of them to be reincarnated into some pathetic, weak, cowardly people like that.”
This type of language also constitutes racism pic.twitter.com/KVvOc43bsw

Here is some footage from my interview with helmetman, which escalated into an argument with an RSS member. Although it was a worrying hazard to be a journalist, it pales in comparison to the fear-filled and threatening atmosphere that prevailed around Leicester yesterday. pic.twitter.com/eQU9Yo4KFo

Despite the massive tensions, the UK establishment media have been somewhat reticent to cover the riots in any real detail, with neither the BBC nor Sky News noting in their Saturday reports that the violent clashes have been between Muslim and Hindu men.
This veiled reporting led to claims that UK news agencies deliberately worded reports so as not to inform the public.
“There are certain cases where news articles have been deliberately written so as not to inform you of things,” writer Ben Sixsmith saidParticularly considering the BBC Report, I found it to be highly criticizing. “paid for by people’s taxes”.
Meanwhile, former Brexit Party MEP, Martin Daubney, describedAs you can see, Leicester was undergoing some major changes “religious anarchy”It was important that they were called out, she argued. “extremism & intolerance wherever it happens & not give ANY groups a free pass (sic)”.
Say it before you do “you’re stirring up hatred”Answer this question: How has our blindness helped us get so far? Over grooming gangs? Batley grammar school teacher? We must call out extremism & intolerance wherever it happens & not give ANY groups a free pass
