London, May 8 (ANI): The sons of former Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir Ali who is of Asian extraction, were reportedly chased and assaulted by a mob of about twenty young men, in what has been described as a racially motivated attack.

Both men suffered bruises and cuts as a result of the attack.

“While we were giving our orders over the counter, a gang of about 20 guys came up to the window of the kebab shop. One of them called me ‘gay’ and then others started shouting racist abuse, calling me and my brother ‘Pakis’,” the Daily Express quoted Ross as saying.

“They started to follow us. One of them spat at us and shouted: ‘Keep walking.’ ” he added.

Dr Nazir, who was the first Bishop of Asian origin to be appointed by the Church of England, has strongly condemned the attack on his sons.

A Kent Police spokesman confirmed to the Daily Express that they were treating the assault as racially-motivated.
