Hate rant Taxi driver hands over his badge to licensing committee during hearing

12 Jan 2019


Taxi driver Zaheer Hussain, who’s hate rant video went viral, has surrendered his licence to Preston City Council while investigations are undertaken.

A video of Hussain emerged across social media showing him deliver a speech condemning any Muslim which converts to Christianity, which he later apologised for, but a petition which saw well over 1,000 signatures calling for his licence to be revoked has put pressure on both the council and himself to take action.


Hussain was called before Preston City Council’s Taxi and Miscellaneous Committee, after he was arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated harassment, to have his licence reviewed.

It’s been confirmed in the Blog Preston, that during the course of the hearing Hussain agreed to hand-in his badge until the completion of the related police investigation and any subsequent legal processes.
