Rabat – A Muslim woman has reportedly been subject to an Islamophobic attack in London as she went to pick up her children from school.
According to the London Evening Standard, a group of women in London allegedly abused, punched and kicked a woman for wearing a headscarf, “as she walked towards private Islamic primary school Al-Khair in south London.”
The young mum, who preferred to remain anonymous, said that a group of women ripped off her Hijabin a racist and Islamophobic act.
“They pulled my headscarf off and started punching and kicking me,” the woman said.
“One was dragging my head down while the others were hitting me. They were being so racist and using derogatory terms,” she added.
The same source added that two women, aged 18 and 35, were arrested on suspicion of attacking the Muslim woman, after police officers arrived to the scene.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said, “We take any offence seriously. We have made two arrests in connection with our ongoing investigation.”
The two alleged suspects have left the police headquarters on bail, but the investigations are still going on to determine if they are the offenders.
