United Kingdom – London Boy Forced To Take Off Yarmulka By Pack Of Teens


    London – Remove your yarmulka or get beaten up.

    That was the choice that an 11 year old Orthodox Jewish boy in the London suburb of Hackney faced yesterday as he walked home from school at 6:30 PM on Wednesday evening, reported The Evening Standard.

    The boy told the Metropolitan Police Service that the boy was walking home his yeshiva located on Leaside Road in Upper Clapton when he was surrounded by a group of older boys and girls who would not let him go by until he removed his yarmulka. The boy, who was not physically harmed in the incident, said he did not recognize any of his attackers.

    While the boy’s parents did not want to make a formal police report, they allowed Shomrim to report the incident as a third party report, according to the Hackney Gazette. A spokesman for Shomrim said that the incident happened near the boy’s home.

    “The child said he tried to run away but the youths blocked his way,” said the spokesman.
