Scotland police investigate online racial slurs against SNP Minister Humza Yousaf, rising Islamophic incidents.
Police in Scotland are investigating racial slurs on Facebook and Twitter aimed at government minister Humza Yousaf, as Islamophobic incidents are on the rise following the Paris terror attacks.
Yousaf has been accused of supporting the Islamic State terrorists who carried out the massacre in Paris that left 129 dead, more than 300 wounded, some in serious condition.
Scottish police are investigating a surge in hate-crime incidents, in addition to the racial abuse of Yousaf.
Herald Scotland reports, “in one incident a lone female was targeted in a shopping centre in the Glasgow suburb of Newton Mearns, where she was called a terrorist and told to “go home”.”
Here are some of the tweets targeting Humza Yousaf:
