On Monday, a video posted online in England showing the violent beatings of two men in East London prompted an investigation by the Metropolitan Police.
The video began with what appeared to be a large group of Muslim men beating a drunk man who reportedly urinated outside of a mosque in the Brick Lane borough of Tower Hamlets. The neighborhood reportedly has the highest percentage of Muslims in England.
Posted on the Muslim advocacy site, “Spotted: Luton Bury Park,” information in the video’s comments section stated that the beating was justified and claimed the drunk man was actually a part of the nationalist group, Britain First. Those comments, however, were later rescinded.
While the first incident showed the drunk man being beaten with a road sign, the second altercation in the video showed a shirtless man lying on the ground being savagely beaten by a larger group.
Shouts of “this is Brick Lane! This is Brick Lane mother f****r!” could be heard as the beating continued.
A witness to the incident, an unnamed waiter from nearby curry restaurant Eye Balti House, stated he did not know what started the altercation.
The 36-year-old victim was taken to a local hospital, treated and released.
