Adding to Muslim concerns about safety, another veiled British Muslim mother was attacked and her hijab ripper off by a group of women when she went to collect children from a London primary school.
“They pulled my headscarf off and started punching and kicking me,” the mother, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Standard on Saturday, June 6.
“One was dragging my head down while the others were hitting me.
“They were being so racist and using derogatory terms.”
Problems started when the mother went to collect her children from school when she met three women who attacked by three women to started “shouting and hurling abuse” because of her hijab in Derby Road, Croydon, close to the private Islamic primary school Al-Khair in south London.
They allegedly asked if she was hot in the headscarf, before tearing it off and punching her. The attack left her with whiplash and chunks of hair missing, but with no significant physical harm.
