Rifleman Kasem Salem, 20, was insulted at north Yorkshire centre
A trainee soldier was racially abused by a British army instructor who called him “Paki Rambo” – a nickname used in the satirical film Four Lions about a group of inept jihadists, a court martial has been told.
Rifleman Kasem Salem, who is originally from Egypt, was also allegedly dubbed a “carpet rider” by Cpl Robert Mehers while he underwent his basic training.
Salem, 20, told the court he was a Muslim who moved to the UK keen to follow his father into the military but he felt “marginalised” by the alleged comments.
