UK: Pakistani actor Marc  called Indians 'bastards' in a Twitter rant

Pakistanis tend not to like Indians -- in part because India is more prosperous than Pakistan

Coronation Street viewers are calling for police to investigate Pakistan-born soap actor Marc Anwar after he was fired from the show for a racist rant on social media.

Mr Anwar, 45, who plays the role of Sharif Nazir in Corrie, referred to Indians as 'bastards' and 'piss-drinking c*nts' on Twitter.

On his account - which ironically says 'it's not what you say, but what you do' - he also wrote: 'Why the f*ck do Pakistani artists want to work in f*ckface India? Do you love money so much?'

It has prompted a furious backlash on social media, with many describing themselves as 'disgusted' and others calling for Mr Anwar to be reported for a hate crime.

Twitter users hit out at Mr Anwar, who has previously campaigned against hate crime with the British Transport Police.

The Sunday Mirror alerted ITV bosses to the Twitter rant and the actor was reportedly sacked within hours

ITV said in a statement: 'We are deeply shocked by the entirely unacceptable, racially offensive comments made on Twitter by Marc Anwar.

Will the government have the guts to charge him with racism and hate speech? I wouldn't hold by breath since he is not a white Anglo-Saxon. If he doesn't get charged then it proves that the racism laws and hate speech laws apply only to whites and the system has been rigged by the socialists in parliament. Time to restore free speech for all.
