A man branded his neighbour a paedophile and threatened to burn down his house when a row over their children escalated.
Ishtiaq Hussain even called Kahalil Malik a “P**i” during the tirade of abuse - despite being from the same ethnic background.
The father-of-five appeared at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court where he admitted a charge of racially-aggravated threatening behaviour.
The Huddersfield court heard that the incident happened on September 28 while Mr Malik was in the garden outside his home in Fern Close in Batley.
Hussain, 47, who lives on the same street, pulled up outside the house in his red Megane.
Rory Byrne, prosecuting, said: “The window was wound down and the complainant asked: ‘What’s your problem?’
“He said: ‘I’m your problem. I’m going to murder every one of you, I’ll burn your house down.
“You’re part of the Jimmy Savile gang, you bunch of paedophiles, you f*****g P**i’.”
Arfaq Nabi, mitigating, said that the problems between the neighbours started when their children fell out.
He told the court: “The parents became involved and it’s escalated”.
District Judge Michael Fanning ordered him to pay £400 fine, £85 costs and £40 victim surcharge.
He told Hussain: “The racially-aggravated element was less offensive coming from you than it would have been from somebody from a different ethnic background.
“(But) threatening to burn the house down was calculated to cause upset.”
