The Muslim Council of Britain has expressed concern at what it says was a reluctance from the police to categorise the death of Mohammed Saleem as an Islamophobic attack.
West Midlands Police have released footage of Pavlo Lapshyn detonating a bomb in Ukraine by a tree.
Ukrainian Pavlo Lapshyn, who admitted murdering a grandfather from Birmingham and planting bombs near mosques in the West Midlands, has been sentenced at the Old Bailey to life in jail.
A judge told him: "You clearly hold extreme white supremacy views that are abhorrent to all right thinking people and have no place whatsoever in our multi-faith and multi-cultural society.
"You were intent on finding a Muslim to murder."
He will serve a minimum of 40 years.
Pavlo Lapshyn was "clearly planning to plant and detonate more devices" says Judge Sweeney.
Lapshyn has returned to court where he is due to be sentenced for the murder of a Birmingham pensioner and for leaving explosive devices near West Midlands mosques after a suspicious package was found in the room.
City of London Police are now saying no-one was detained in connection with the suspect package in the Old Bailey, contrary to their earlier statement.
The building has now reopened and people are being allowed back inside.
A statement from City of London Police said:
The spokeswoman would not comment on reports the suspect package was found in Court 11, where Pavlo Lapshyn in being sentenced for bombing three mosques, and murdering a Muslim pensioner in a series of racist attacks.
Guardian reporter Vikram Dodd said the police cordon had been lifted and people were being allowed back into the Old Bailey after an evacuation of the building.
The Old Bailey has adjourned the sentencing of terror attacker and murderer Pavlo Lapshyn until this afternoon.
Pavlo Lapshyn, aged 25, has pleaded guilty to killing Mohammed Saleem, 82, as well as planting bombs outside mosques in Walsall, Wolverhampton and Tipton.
The hearing will resume at 2pm.
