The man behind a disturbing hate campaign, which targeted British Muslims and UK political figures has been sentenced to a 12 and a half year jail term at the Old Bailey court house in London.

RNA - Described as a white supremacist, 35-year-old David Parnham, who also liked to call himself the “Muslim Slayer”, pleaded guilty to 15 offences including bomb hoaxes and the notorious "punish a Muslim day" letter which was distributed across the country, encouraging co-ordinated Islamophobic attacks on British Muslims.

According to Press TV, the letters, sent out in April 2018, claimed Europe was being “overrun” by Muslims and contained a makeshift points scoring system for violence ranging from pulling off women’s headscarves, acid attacks, bombing mosques and “butchering” Muslims with guns or knives.

For many, the news comes as a relief but fears still remain over the rise of Islamophobic hate crimes nationwide.

According to recent reports, the country's own PM, Boris Johnsons, has been linked to the biggest spike of Islamophobic hate which occurred following his infamous comparison between women wearing burkas and bank robbers in 2018.
