‘Scary to be locked in car’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Last month Mr Devine de­scribed how the driver, who the coun­cil has not named, started watch­ing the video on a mo­bile phone in a holder on the dash­board and re­fused to turn it off when asked.

Mr Devine said at the time: “The video showed a head and shoul­ders shot of a Mus­lim bloke wear­ing a white hat. There were speak­ers in the back of the car so we could hear what was be­ing said and that was what an­noyed me.

“If it had been just in the front for him to hear it wouldn’t have both­ered me.

“The Mus­lim was talk­ing about God, hu­man be­ings and an­gels. Then an English voice started ques­tion­ing him.

“At one point I thought it could have been a proChris­tian video but I think it was pro-Mus­lim.

“How­ever, I would have found it of­fen­sive what­ever re­li­gion it was preach­ing, as I’m an athe­ist. It was some­one talk­ing and talk­ing and not shut­ting up.

“I was an­gry that I was spo­ken to the way I was. But the scary thing was the fact we were locked in the car.”
