Tory activist told ‘go back to a white fucking country’ as he campaigns in East London.

Has Ahmed, 23, was canvassing for the Conservatives in Redbridge, East London, ahead of next month’s snap election. The unknown Muslim aggressor followed Mr Ahmed across the road before spitting a slew of insults. He blasted his target as “sick in the head” before telling him to go “to a white fucking country”.

Mr Ahmed told MailOnline: “There were other people about, but nobody interfered. It was really quite scary. “I was walking towards the station through town when the man saw my rosette and asked if I was a Conservative. “When I said yes, he said “aren’t you ashamed?”, and I just asked “why would you say that?”. “I was really nervous, I was so scared until the moment I got home and locked my doors. I was shaken, I switched my phone off and just sat there.”

Pakistan-born Mr Ahmed said the man berated him for four minutes and called him a “coconut” – a racial slur accusing someone of betraying their ethnicity. He later joked on Twitter: “Politics and differences aside, this man was extremely hostile and aggressive while campaigning today. Can we put him down as a “maybe” for the Conservatives?”

The clip shows the man snarling:

“You are a fucking fascist! “You’re stupid! You are fucking sick in the head if you are voting for Conservative! You are a bloody idiot.”

The clip has sparked a police appeal for information – but no suspect has been identified. Mr Ahmed won praise from senior Tories for his unruffled response. Minister Johnny Mercer, a former army officer, said: “I’ll come campaigning with you next time. Top man. Good work.”
