This is not the first time that Paul Chowdhry has said that he has been attacked.
He previously spoke about the prejudice that his father faced in the 1980s and how he was subjected to racially motivated violence, which is something he has also experienced.
Speaking to Gaby Roslin on her podcast, Paul revealed that his father had been attacked with a knife during one serious incident.
Paul previously said: “He took quite a few stitches to the face.
“There was a knife attack, the people were never caught. But he got on with it, he never held grudges.”
Paul went on to reveal that he had experienced similar violence. He said:
“I’ve been attacked, lots of stuff has happened to me, but you can’t let it affect you, you know it’s a part of human nature, some of the darker sides.”
