A British man has been arrested for his Facebook post which said he had no worries about ending the life of any Muslim.
The post has later been removed from his account.
Eric King, 63, of St Austell, Cornwall, England, has been sharing other hateful posts and comments on social media including a video of a man urinating on the Quran, reports Metro
Another post of King’s account said: “Islam needs to be wiped off the face of the earth, if that means killing all Muslims, so be it,” above a shared post from Britain First regarding religion in Germany.
Angry at ISIS activities, King posted on his facebook account on September 15 saying: “Why are we being forced to except all these immigrants, they are the scum of the world I hate every one of them, I have no worries about ending the life of any Muslim, they are more than happy to end the lives of all white people, the day is coming when we the white true people of the UK will revolt and take the country back.”
This post has been removed from his account later.
Among others who complained about King’s hate speech both online and offline, a man from his neighbourhood said requesting anonymity: “The violent threats towards Muslims worry me greatly having friends and knowing people of that faith live locally. I would expect them to speak up regarding Islamic extremist and I don’t see Mr King’s hate speech any differently.”
British police said: “A 63-year-old man from St Austell was arrested on suspicion of publishing threatening written material intending to stir up religious or sexual orientation hatred. The suspect has now been released under investigation pending further enquiries to be carried out,” Metro reported.
