Three men hurled anti-Islam slurs at a Muslim woman and tried to rip off her hijab. Many witnessed the incident, but no one came to her aid. Demand justice for this innocent woman.
“I heard them say something very loudly, something about Donald Trump … I also heard them say the word terrorist and I sort of got a little scared,” stated Yasmin Seweid. The 18-year-old college student was riding the subway when the three men began yelling anti-Islam slurs. The men then followed her to the other end of the car and attempted to rip the hijab off of her head.
Seweid filed a police report. Police are investigating, but have no suspects at this time. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.
Dear District Attorney Vance,
Three men on a subway car verbally harassed an 18-year-old Muslim student. The men then attempted to rip her hijab off of her head. We demand justice for this innocent woman.
“Get the hell out of the country! You don’t belong here.” Three unidentified men shouted these words at a Muslim student, calling her a terrorist. The taunting continued, leading to the men breaking her bag and trying to pull her hijab off of her head. Several other riders witnessed the attack, but did not intervene.
Anti-Islam sentiment cannot be tolerated. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
[Your Name Here]
