A Chechen Muslim illegal alien, who was ordered deported from Germany but never was, beat a transgender man to death after the man defended two lesbian women from homophobic insults during an LGBTQ Pride Parade in the city of Münster. The suspect is a Russian citizen hailing from Chechnya, a predominately Muslim state that remains part of the Russian federation.
REMIX News(h/t Thereza B) On Saturday, Aug. 27, more than 10,000 people gathered in downtown Münster, Germany, to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community when a Chechen Muslim migrant, identified as Nuradi A., started hurling homophobic slurs at two lesbian women. The attacker called the two women “lesbian whores” and shouted “Fuck you.” When the attacker approached the women threateningly, Malte C., a transgender man, intervened, asking Nuradi A. to leave them alone.
The migrant subsequently attacked Malte C., punching him in the face, throwing him to the ground, and beating him until he was unconscious, according to German newspaper Bild. The victim was plunged into a coma due to a cerebral hemorrhage, with the 25-year-old dying on Friday due to his injuries.
News reports indicate that Nuradi A’s asylum request had already been rejected by the German government, and he should have been deported back to Russia, but the war in Ukraine hampered his deportation. However, Germany already had a poor record on deportations — even for those individuals convicted of crimes — long before the war in Ukraine broke out.
The 20-year-old was presented to the magistrate on Saturday afternoon. He decided that the man would be remanded in custody. He is charged with bodily harm resulting in death.
Germany has suffered from similar cases in the past, including a Syrian migrant who targeted two gay men in Dresden in 2020. The Syrian stabbed one of them to death, saying that he did it in the name of Islam and to “punish the infidels.” He said he did not regret the attack.
Earlier this summer, in June, approximately 30 men of “southern origin” attacked an LGBT parade in Karlsruhe, beating a number of participants and setting an LGBT flag on fire.
