Following his arrest on Wednesday, he was bailed to a date in mid-March, pending further inquiries
Another five men arrested in connection with the investigation are on bail.
The arrests came after a video appeared online showing men shouting homophobic abuse at another man, telling him to "get out of here" as "it is a Muslim area".
In previous footage posted in the internet, a group of men announced themselves to passers-by as "vigilantes implementing Islam upon your own necks".
The video shows the men pouring alcoholic drinks down drains.
The East London Mosque condemned the incidents, saying: "These actions are utterly unacceptable and clearly designed to stoke tensions and sow discord.
"The actions of this tiny minority have no place in our faith nor on our streets."
