A MUSLIM road-rage driver who sent five men flying “like skittles” after mowing them down in his van during Ramadan has had his prison sentence cut.
Luqman Aslam, 26, was involved in an altercation with the men before deliberately ploughing into them in a busy city centre.
Shocking footage of the dramatic incident shows several victims being hit by his van, with two ending up on the bonnet.
Incredibly, nobody was killed or seriously injured in the attack which happened in Lee Street, Leicester, on the evening of June 28 last year.
An onlooker said at the time: “It was horrific, the driver crossed over onto the opposite lane of the road before veering onto the pavement and went straight into the men.
“They went flying like skittles. God only knows how anyone survived.”
He was jailed for five years and banned from driving for four-and-a-half years at Leicester Crown Court in June after admitting dangerous driving and attempting to inflict GBH.
But the father-of-one had his jail term cut to four years at London’s Appeal Court on Friday.
Judge Jeremy Carey claimed that Aslam had “used the car as a weapon.”
However, he noted that there was “substantial mitigation” and that the driver had not received sufficient credit for his guilty pleas.
It was also claimed that Aslam was a “quiet” family man and had been fasting for 20 days at the time of the incident.
The court heard how three of the pedestrians were left injured in the road rage, but none seriously.
One was flung onto the road, another struck the bonnet “full in the face” and the last “hit the dead centre of the bonnet.”
This guy we are made to believe was fasting as at the time the incident happened and he has gone 20 days without food which is a lie from the their master the Devil.
In Islamic fast they only really miss lunch, they eat early in the morning and still break the fast late night and besides it’s not an excuse for an attempted murder.
In an idea world if you have argument or altercation with people you walk away, those guys already walked away from whatever happened in between them but that is not the case with a Muslim brother.
The people must die for disagreeing with him, they have no regard whatsoever for human life, and its quite shocking that these guys who were probably born in the UK still think and behave like this in the so called western world.
The sentence is been reduced because he was fasting, a family man and pleaded guilty at the first trial. …. what a joke. fasting does not make people go crazy except Muslims, been a family man actually should make him more responsible. Christians fast and they are not blowing up the world when they do. Fasting month was meant to be their holy month but that it is when Islamic terrorism is at its highest worldwide. A holy Month? a blood month more like it.
Just check the records worldwide of killings during Ramadan months.
Final score in 2017
At the time of his original sentencing, Recorder Justin Wigoder said: “What you did after that is totally shocking.
“You quite deliberately drove your van at that group who were walking along the pavement.
“You deliberately mounted the pavement and drove straight at them and right through the middle of them at speed.
“It’s quite remarkable that nobody was seriously hurt or killed and the only injuries complained of were bruises and scratches.”
