PressTV-Brutal attack on hijab-wearing girl: Video

8.9.15

PressTV-Brutal attack on hijab-wearing girl: Video: [presstv.ir] The attack on the 16-year-old girl wearing Islamic hijab took place in east London’s Plaistow, Newham Street on November 13, 2012. Ayoade was arrested by the police after the CCTV footage of the shocking attack was released.

In February 2013, Ayoade was sentenced to four years in jail after pleading guilty to the attack on Tasneem and another similar attack.

The footage shows the 34-year-old attacker following Tasneem for around 800 meters before he knocks her to the ground and flees the scene, the Daily Mail reported on Monday.

The assault is just one example of Islamophobic attacks in London that -- according to police figures -- have risen sharply since a year ago. Women wearing hijab are the main target of such attacks. Over the last 12 months, 816 attacks were reported on Muslims, almost twice as the figure for the year before.

The actual number of attacks is thought to be much higher as many victims are too scared to report the incidents.
