London, September 27: A British Sikh woman was handed down a two-year suspended jail term by a UK court for launching a campaign of racist abuse and harassment against her Hindu ex-boyfriend and his family over a period of five years, including posting beef through their door as an attack on their faith.
Amandeep Mudhar had pleaded guilty to racially aggravated harassment and was handed down a two-year sentence at Swindon Crown Court in south-west England on Tuesday.
The court was told of Mudhar orchestrating a series of attacks on the unnamed family of her former boyfriend, including abusive and threatening phone calls and attacks on social media.
The court was told that the 26-year-old had a brief relationship with the man, which was “never fully intimate”, over a few weeks in 2012.
But after he ended the affair citing cultural differences, Mudhar and her family launched attacks, which included threats of rape against his sisters and mother and also to blow up their home and cars, local daily “Swindon Advertiser” reported. Mudhar also faces a six-month curfew, during which her movements will be curtailed. She has also been directed to complete 100 hours of unpaid community service.
