This is the moment a 14-year-old boy was “left for dead” in a horrific hit-and-run by a speeding car fleeing police in Luton.
Mohammed Casim Hussain, 20, tried evading armed police officers on Leagrave Road, Luton, on 14 March 2018 while travelling at 59mph – nearly three times the speed limit.
At the same time, Ibrahim Ahmed tried to cross the road but was knocked into the air by Hussain, landing several metres away from the point of impact.
Ibrahim was given first aid by police at the roadside and police officers were commended for helping save the boy’s life.
After suffering organ damage and internal bleeding, he is still recovering.
Hussain, also from the town, was sentenced at Luton Crown Court last Tuesday to 16 months in a young offenders’ institution after admitting causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
As you’re here…
5Pillars have one humble request from you…
Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.
5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.
This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.
Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).
You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?
If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
