-This muslim man and his cousin were thrown with acid inside their car
-They had unforgettable injuries because of the acid
-The person who threw the acid to them is a Britsh man.
KAMI stumbled across this terrible story we got from Channel 4 News about a man who suffered from injuries because of an acid attack.
Jameel Muhktar had to be put in a coma for two days after a man threw acid at him and his cousin Resham Khan through a car window. This was an unforgettable experience for the two.
It was his cousin Resham Khan 21st birthday that time when they got attacked.
As what Jameel Mukhtar remembered, a British man knocked on their side window and threw some liquid on them. They thought at first that it was just prank.
Until Resham's felt a burning sensation around her body that was splashed by the liquid. They knew that it was an acid.
He was interviewed by Channel 4 News where he expressed his feelings towards the acid attack they experienced.
“He just squirted this clear liquid over us, which I thought was water until my cousin started to scream,”
“I was watching her burning. Next thing I know, I’m burning, my seat’s burning, my trainers are burning, her skin’s peeling…within seconds.”
“I haven’t done anything to anybody and nor has my cousin,” Mr Mukhtar added
“We’re not terrorists. This guy tried to kill us, I’m lucky I’m alive.”
“Resham is usually a very confident young woman…but now she feels as though her identity has been stolen from her,” friends said.
It did not take too long to identify the attacker.
He posted on a page,
“A sleeping lion can only be provoked so much before it wakes up and attacks…and so will us British,” reads one post shared in 2015.
“We will stand and we will fight. We will reclaim what is rightfully ours. We will not surrender.”
Police said not to approach him. They gave a n instruction that if he is seen, contact the authorities first.
Jameel cries for attention and justice for him and his cousin. He is calling for all muslims who suffered the same discrimination and hate they experienced.
“It's definitely a hate crime. I believe it's something to do with Islamophobia. Maybe he's got it in for Muslims because of the things that have been going on lately.
"I don't know if people are trying to retaliate. We're innocent people. We didn't deserve that. I've never seen this guy in my life.
