Subhan Allah so sad to hear this.

:ia: justice will be served.

Police are appealing for witnesses and information following a report of an Islamophobic attack that allegedly occurred on a London bus last week.

Metropolitan Police officers were called to London Road in Southwark, near Elephant and Castle Tube station, on Wednesday 28 October following reports of a Muslim woman being subject to racist and Islamophobic abuse by two young women.

Officers spoke to the victim, a woman in her forties, who was injured as a result of allegedly being punched in the head and kicked off the number 63 bus at around 8pm.

Commuter Antonia Bance who was on the bus at the time told The Independent what she witnessed.

“I was waiting for a bus by Elephant and Castle station, when all of a sudden the crowd around me gasped,” she said.

“As I looked up there was a woman in a pink hijab lying on the road next to the back doors of the bus.”

She said there was then a scuffle between passengers on the bus, as commuters tried to hang on to the two women who were allegedly responsible.

“People tried to take pictures of them as they walked off, but they were pushing the cameras away,” Ms Bance said.

Speaking to the victim afterwards, she discovered that there had been an earlier argument on the bus, with the two women allegedly taking pictures of her on their phones while making Islamophobic comments.

“She said they kicked her in the stomach off the bus backwards. Due to the roadworks around Elephant and Castle, she landed on the road on her back,” Ms Bance said.

“It was awful, just awful.”

She said after the incident many passengers stayed around to help the victim.

“People were trying to hold on to these girls, they were taking videos and photos, and a few called the police.”

“Straight away people picked the lady up off the floor, they were giving her hugs and helping her with her shopping.”

“It’s an awful, awful thing to happen, but everyone there was trying their best to help.”

Police said the victim was badly shaken, and was taken to a central London hospital for treatment after the incident. She has since been discharged.

The suspects have been described as black females in their twenties, and police are appealing for witnesses.

No arrests have yet been made, but officers from the Road and Transport Policing Command continue to investigate.

this is obviously a result of the British media's continued false and malicious portrayal of Islam

Out of all the women in the world, Muslim women are the ones who most closely dress like/emulate the noble virgin Mary (peace be on her). Most depictions of her, even though of course wrong Islamically, are with her head covered. If Mary (peace be on her) was to come back to life and come back to Earth now, people would most likely tell her to "Go back home you middle eastern woman, you Muslim!" Yet while at the same time supposedly annually making a big thing of celebrating her giving birth to her son. The contradiction is rather stark.
