This image allegedly posted on the the acid attack suspect's Facebook now has disturbing undertones following the hate crime on two Muslim cousins.
Two Muslim cousins were left with horrifying acid burns following an unprovoked attack in east London on June 21.
Jameel Muhktar and Resham Khan suffered severe injuries to the face and body, with Mr Muhktar initially put into an induced coma.
The Met Police have named 24-year-old John Tomlin as the suspected attacker, with evidence suggesting the attack was racially motivated.
A screengrab of an alleged Facebook post from the acid attack suspect has been circulating on social media.
The poster shows a historic soldier lifting it's sword ready to fight to "reclaim what's rightfully ours".
The illustration, which was shared by the alleged attacker from 'English and Proud's Facebook page, says "ordinary Brits, heroes, will arise" to "make Britain great again".
The full image reads:
"A sleeping lion can only be provoked so much before it wakes up an attacks...and so will us British.
"We will stand & we will fight. We will reclaim what is rightfully ours. We will not surrender. Out of ordinary Brits, heroes will arise, champions will be made & we will make Britain great again."
