AN 11-YEAR-OLD Sikh boy had his turban ripped off and stamped upon by a group of racist thugs on a Liverpool bus.
Arjan Rhode was attacked by a gang of teenagers on Monday afternoon on the 82 service in Garston.
Moments after he got on the bus near Aigburth Road, he was tapped on the shoulder and his turban was suddenly pulled from his head.
A group of around nine yobs, aged around 18, passed the turban around while mocking the St Benedict’s RC College pupil.
They shouted a tirade of racist abuse at the terrified boy as they stamped on the turban on the floor.
The turban is one of the most important religious symbols for a Sikh and damaging one is seen as a huge insult. [Link]
