A court in UK has sentenced a man to four years in jail for sharing photos of himself holding a shotgun and propagating anti-Muslim messages online, BBC reported. Thirty-nine-year-old Jay Davison of Cardiff posted the “extremely offensive” messages in August 2018, a Cardiff Crown Court was told on Monday. He had urged people to “stand up” in posts on Instagram and Whatsapp. A jury found him guilty of stirring up religious hatred and two counts of stirring up racial hatred. However, the same defendant was cleared of two further counts of stirring up religious hatred in a trial last month.
