Three white officers who won a claim of race and sex discrimination against the Metropolitan Police have been awarded a total of £90,000 compensation.
The men won their case at an employment tribunal
Scotland Yard confirmed Det Con Tom Hassell will receive £25,000 while Det Insp Paul Whatmore, 39, and Det Sgt Colin Lockwood will get £32,500 each.
The trio faced disciplinary action after remarks made during a police training session on Islam.
They won their case at an employment tribunal in east London on Monday.
A complaint was made after Mr Hassell mispronounced "Shi'ites", referred to Muslim headwear as "tea cosies" and said he felt sorry for anyone fasting during Ramadan, at the presentation in 1999.
Det Sgt Shabnam Chaudhri, who made the complaint, also criticised the other two officers for not taking appropriate action.
Mr Hassell apologised but Det Sgt Chaudhri said he had been racist.
They were found partly guilty of misconduct at a hearing in 2001 which recommended no further action should be taken.
But Sir Ian Blair, the now Metropolitan Police Commissioner, called for the decision to be challenged.
The men argued that the matter would not have got beyond an informal complaint, had it not been for Det Sgt Chaudhri's race, sex and religious background.
Mr Hassell won £15,000 for injury to feelings and £10,000 for aggravated damages.
The other two men were awarded a further £7,500 in special damages.
