Muslim Woman Spat On, Hijab Pulled Off by Gang

4 December 2011 General 7 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

A Muslim woman was spat at and abused by a gang of six teenagers in Telford who pulled off her religious headdress in a racially motivated attack.

The gang, who were all male, surrounded the 52-year-old woman and started aggressively pushing and shoving her as she walked along a footpath by the skate park near William Reynolds Infant School in Woodside on Tuesday. Chris Ammonds, spokesman for Telford police, said the woman was abused between 6pm and 6.20pm.

“After circling the victim the youths then started to racially abuse her. At least one of the youths spat at the victim too.

“The youths then pulled the victim’s hijab – a traditional Muslim headdress – off her head and taunted her with it but she quickly managed to grab it back off them and flee.

“The victim has been left very shaken by this incident and also suffered a long scratch to her right cheek as a result of the assault.

“The youths that surrounded the victim are all described as being white, aged between 15 and 17 and as wearing tracksuits and hooded tops or caps.

“Officers are very keen to identify the youths that assaulted this woman.”

Anyone with information should call Telford police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

  1. What was she doing walking alone with no male escort?

  2. Criley,
    That is a misconception. A women is only not allowed to journey by herself if the trip is more than 3 days and 3 nights. This was for their own safety, especially during those times. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) did not like it though if a women chose to journey for a day and night without an escort, unless it was for a religious purpose. During those times in the deserts of Arabia it was quite common to be attacked by bands of theives, and women would suffer more than just theft. It was also because many women who went alone would be open to fitnah (a term used when ppl spread rumours and discourse to cause trouble).
    Point is, this woman is not going alone to some far off place, she is just walking in her own neighborhood, but it looks like now she will need an escort.

  3. criley she was waiting for you

  4. For every story like this there is another one like this: (from daily mail, UK)

    A gang of Muslim girls who repeatedly kicked a young woman in the head walked free from court after a judge heard they were ‘not used to being drunk’ because of their religion.
    The group screamed ‘kill the white slag’ while kicks raining in on 22-year-old Rhea Page as she lay motionless on the ground, the court heard.

    Their victim was left with a bald patch after they pulled a chunk out of her hair during the attack on the High Street, Leicester.
    Ambaro and Hibo Maxamed, both 24, their sister Ayan, 28, and cousin Ifrah Nur, 28, attacked Rhea, a care worker, as she walked to a taxi rank with her boyfriend after a night out.
    The victim, a support worker, was left so traumatised that she lost her job following repeated absences with stress and flashbacks, Leciester Crown Court was told.

    ‘We didn’t want to stay out too late so we went to get a taxi and all of a sudden I heard these women shouting abuse at me.
    ‘We were just minding our own business but they kept shouting “white bitch” and “white slag” at me.
    ‘When I turned around one of them grabbed my hair – she literally wrapped her fingers in my hair – then threw me on the ground. That’s when they started kicking me.
    ‘They were taking turns to kick me in the head and back over and over. I was lying on the ground the whole time, crying and screaming. It was terrifying. I thought they were going to kill me.
    ‘Eventually the police came but it felt like ages. Afterwards I was covered in blood and hair.
    ‘I had a bald patch on my head where they had yanked my hair out and I was black and blue all over.
    ‘I honestly think they attacked me just because I was white. I can’t think of any other reason.’

    She suffered bruises and grazes to her head, back, legs and arms, and had clumps of hair pulled out.

    Seventeen months on from the attack, she is still undergoing counselling and suffers from panic attacks and flashbacks.

    ‘They were kicking me in the head right up to the minute the police arrived.
    ‘Even after the police came and they all ran away, one of them came running back to kick me in the head one last time while I was lying unconscious on the ground.’

  5. here is the video of leicester story. we can see that the boyfriend fights back hitting those somalian gang. its far more different from boys harrasing an old woman:

    I think they attacked the girl for being improperly dressed, bare arms and head. Then they got mad when the couple began to fight back. How in the world these girls were let off is beyond me.

  7. argun,

    “its far more different from boys harrasing an old woman” your right there. to actually attack someone is much worse then spitting on them and pulling off their hat.

    salim,

    what did you call for, 3 years and $10k fine for the woman who pulled the headscarf of the woman in canada. so what would you give these somalis.

Have your say!
