Ryhan Ali, 23, threatened to stab audience members because he hated English people but has been spared jail
A Muslim thug who threatened to gun down and stab staff and audience members at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre because ‘he hated the English’ has been spared jail.
Ryhan Ali, 23, launched into an expletive-ridden tirade and told shocked theatre employees that he was ‘going to get a gun and kill English pigs’ and called them ‘scum’.
And when police arrived to arrest him, he branded an officer a ‘racist white c***’.
Astonishingly, hours before his foul-mouthed rant Ali had appeared in court for racially abusing two security guards after flying into a rage at a hospital.
On Wednesday, he admitted racially aggravated offences, two of causing fear of violence and one of causing alarm or distress to people at the theatre.
Ali, of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, also pleaded guilty to three charges of malicious communication.
But he walked free after he was given a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for two years.
Judge Anthony Potter ordered him to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work and to take part in a rehabilitation activity for up to 30 days.

He was also spotted abusing staff at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford
Judge Potter told him: ‘Sending you to prison would interfere with the care package which is in place.’
A court heard Ali launched into a vile rage after barging into a hospital ward and abusing staff on June 4 last year.
Security staff at Warwick Hospital were alerted when he showed ‘strange behaviour’ after attending the A&E department.
After abusing staff and making threats to rape a man’s wife and kill his children, police were called and he was arrested.
Prosecutor Edward Hollingsworth said Ali had wandered into a ward from A&E and was sitting in a corridor.
Security guards told him he should not be there and asked him to return to A&E.
But he became verbally aggressive towards them, calling one of them ‘English scum’ and a ‘white b*stard.’
Ali leaded guilty to three charges of malicious communication but walked free after he was given a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for two years
He referred to the other security guard as a ‘Paki,’ calling him a ‘fake’ and saying he was ‘not a true Muslim.’
Ali threatened to smash the glass in a fire alarm and threatened one of the guards that he would go to his house and rape his wife and kill his children.
Eventually they took him by his arms and escorted him back to A&E where he continued abusing them and spat on the floor.
The officers followed him outside, and when he went as if to grab one of them by his throat, they pulled him to the floor and restrained him.
The police attended, and Ali was arrested, but made no comment when he was questioned and was granted bail.
The court heard that on August 30, he turned up at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford after appearing in court for the June 4 offences.
Prosecutor Edward Hollingsworth said: ‘Mr Ali told security staff who spoke to him that he had gone there to hurt someone, saying he was going to take a knife into the theatre and talking of white people and Asians as ‘scum.’
‘He ranted that he hated the English and was “going to get a gun and kill English pigs”.
One witness, appropriately called Mr Shakespeare, said Ali threatened that if anyone went near him, whether they were a man, a woman or a child, he would hurt them.
The court heard that on March 15 this year, while subject to a community order for earlier racially aggravated public order offences, he phoned his probation worker.
Calling him a ‘black b*stard’, Ali told him: ‘I’m not scared of you. I’m going to come next week and sort you out, you f***ing black bastard.’
On April 9 he made a 999 call where he hurled racist abuse at the call handler.
She recognised his voice as a result of previous calls, and politely said: ‘Hello Ryhan, how can we help you?’ But he responded by calling her a ‘white bitch.’
At midnight on May 2, he made the 9th in a sequence of 999 calls, during which he was abusive towards the call-handler, using racist language and calling him a ‘dickhead’ and a ‘retard.’
