Estimated read time: 1'

A British man suspected of sending the «Punish a Muslim Day» letters, who was arrested last June, pleaded guilty of soliciting murder and 13 other offences, wrote online newspaper Today Online.

Originally from Lincoln, David Parnham, 35, appeared before the Central Criminal Court in London on October the 12th. He carried out a terror campaign for two years, since 2016, by sending «malicious» letters and «highly offensive» packages to many people and organizations, said the police.

These packages were sent to mosques, Muslim MPs and to Queen Elizabeth. The letters urged their readers to harm Muslims.

The anonymous letters sent randomly to people in the UK set the «Punish a Muslim Day» on the 3rd of April detailing a scoring system for each offence and giving a reward for it in exchange. For instance, pulling a Muslim woman’s hijab is worth 25 points, throwing acid is 50 points and burning or bombing a mosque is a total of 1.000 points

According to the BBC, David Parnham's DNA and fingerprints have been found in some letters, including one sent to Dylann Roof, the white supremacist sentenced to death for killing nine black worshipers in a church in Charleston, South Carolina, June 17, 2015.
