Little girl attacked in Canada, man tries to cut off hijab

Little girl attacked in Canada, man tries to cut off hijab”

Akin to a familiar theme before and after the 2016 U.S. presidential election, an 11-year-old female Toronto grammar school student is claiming a man attempted to cut off her hijab while she was on her way to school this morning.

"I certainly hope that the Toronto Police Services are able to track down the person who committed this violent act and my thoughts and prayers are with the family", Scheer said.

Authorities said the girl was on her way to school when she felt something and turned around to see a man trying to cut off her head scarf.

Noman's mother Saima Samad also talked to reporters at the school. Her and her brother made a decision to cross the road and walk with a bigger group of people. She told police the man struck again when she and her brother were held back from the group at a stoplight.

Her brother told reporters that he was frightened, and anxious his sister would be hurt.

Mohammad said his sister's hood was pulled up over her head before the attack.

The girl said she's confused and scared following the incident. I'm so proud to be a Canadian and I feel safe in this community.

She added that the incident was not being investigated as a hate crime at the moment, but it will be considered by investigators.

Samad said the family has lived in Canada for the 25 years and she grew up here, but she will exercise more caution when her kids walk to school from now on. "I'm just so happy she's safe..." "I want her and her family and her friends and community that that is not what Canada is and that is not who Canadians are".

Pauline Johnson Junior Public School's website says that it serves children attending junior kindergarten through grade six.

Toronto Mayor John Tory says he is "shocked and appalled" to hear about the assault.

"No child should ever be afraid walking to school in Toronto because of what they are wearing or for any other reason", he said in a statement. This does not represent who we are.

Anyone with information about the investigation should contact 42 Division at 416-808-4200 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637). "Intolerance and hate of any kind, including Islamophobia, has no place in our city, our province, or our country".
