The two victims, aged 40 and 49 at the time, were assaulted by Mansha and the youth at a Tesco store in Bow.
Mansha followed them home after the attack to determine where they lived, and an hour later he and a group of friends returned to assault them once more, using weapons including a baseball bat.
One of the victims sustained a fractured skull and two broken wrists.
His Honour Judge Darling, who presided over the case, said: “Not only was there a religious aspect to this offence, but there was an undoubted racial element.
“Both prior to and after the attack, Mr Mansha is heard to use language that is foul, unacceptable and which reveals a degree of racial intolerance that is worrying.”
