David Gallacher kicked Samsam Haji-Ali in the stomach causing her to fall on the floor in agony.

He then verbally abused her telling her “you’re the f***ing problem with this place”.

The thug admitted two counts of racially-aggravated assault and was blasted by the judge said “we will not bow to the views of racists”.

The court had heard that Gallacher launched the a vile verbal assault on Mrs Ali as he went to buy booze from the supermarket.

When the victim asked him why he was looking at her he told her “You come here with your clown outfit on, you f****** people, you are the f****** problem in this place”

He then attacked her in the car park – repeatedly kicking her in the stomach despite her pleaded with him she was pregnant.

When her husband Abdullah Sulamain tried to calm him down, Gallacher smashed him over the head with his shopping – leaving him needing stitches.

Mrs Haji-Ali, a Somali mum-of-four, was forced to flee her home in fear as a result of the assault last year on August 6.

She did not know she was expecting twins until medics told her she had lost them on August 24

Her 40-year-old husband was forced to give up his job as a taxi driver to stay home and reassure his traumatised wife.

Sentencing him today, Judge Francis Sheridan told Gallacher: “You are a thug and a racist to boot.

“It is time you learnt that your vile conduct and abhorrent views are a thing of the past.

“This county will not bow to the views of racists, because decent society demands that intolerance is shown to all racists of any sort, however they chose to express their hatred of others, or dislike of others and the abuse that goes with it.”
