A bereaved father who publicly appealed for calm hours after his son was killed in last summer's riots has been convicted of a roadside attack after kicking and punching a factory worker he accused of staring at his wife.
Tariq Jahan, who is 46, was found guilty of inflicting grievous bodily harm following a three-day trial at Birmingham Crown Court.
Jurors heard he grabbed 34-year-old Sajjid Ali by the throat before punching him to the ground after the pair got into an argument in Handsworth, Birmingham, on July 6 last year.
The attack happened a month before Jahan won national acclaim for an impassioned appeal for peace after his 21-year-old son Haroon was killed during disorder in the Winson Green area of Birmingham.
