Maajid Nawaz has shared pictured of his injuries he sustained after being racially attacked and hit in the face.

Maajid said a white man attacked him while he was standing alone outside the Soho Theatre in central London.

The LBC radio presenter and founder of the Quilliam Foundation shared a picture of a cut to his forehead and then a picture of his head bandaged up.

He posted, “Tonight I was racially attacked while alone outside Soho theatre, from behind, as I bent down to pick up my phone.

"The white male assailant called me a “fucking Paki” as he hit me in the face with maybe a signet ring & ran away like a coward. He took nothing. He was just a racist.”

“There are witnesses who heard the racial abuse and have given statements. The police have his face on CCTV. My forehead will probably be scarred for life. But we will find you, you racist coward, and you will face British justice.”

He later tweeted, “I’ll be okay. We grew up with this. It’s the life that forged us. Thank you to all who have privately message me. I just need some space and time alone right now. Goodnight all. I love my country.”

Police sid they recieved a report of a racially aggravated assault at 19:10 GMT.

He later posted a message accusing some people of revelling in the injury towards him and pointing out how 'non-Muslims' had assisted him.
