Schoolgirl declares that man with scissors cut her hijab

Open this

In 2016, there were 1,409 police-reported hate crimes, according to Canada's national statistical agency.

In a tweet, they described the suspect as Asian, in his 20s, with a medium build, black hair and a moustache. Police say she was attacked by the same man a second time about 10 minutes later. "I feel like this should stop", she said. "I am so proud to be a Canadian, and I feel so safe in this community".

"He continued cutting my hijab again" before smiling and running away, said Khawlah.

The man is said to be in his mid-20s, and was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black trousers.

There has been no word on if the girl was injured during the attacks.

She looked at him and screamed. She arrived at her school after the attack, and police were called.

Added Khawlah: "We both walked to school together and we both told my principal".

She said that she felt someone tug her hood from her winter coat down and hack at her light blue scarf with a pair of scissors.

"My heart goes out to the young girl who was attacked, seemingly for her religion", he said during a speech in London, Ontario.

The incident was deeply upsetting for the children, and for their mother, Samia Samad.

Their mother, Samia Samad, said she can not understand why someone would do something like this.

African ambassadors condemn Trump remarks as 'racist'
It was unclear why the four Republicans were there, and the session did not produce the results the two senators were hoping for. In a statement late Thursday, the White House did not dispute the vulgar language reportedly used by Trump during the meeting.

"It's just not Canada".

"I'm frustrated and I'm angry but I do believe in peace in Canada", Samad said. "In the meantime, we're offering supports to the impacted student and her family", said Bird.

She said: 'It's just not Canada.

Premier Kathleen Wynne was outraged.

Toronto police commended Khawlah for the way she had handled the incident.

The school's website says 68 per cent of the junior kindergarten through Grade 6 students in attendance speak a language other than English at home.

"It's one thing to assault an adult, which is never acceptable, but for this to happen to a child - I can't tell you how horrified we all are", spokeswoman Shari Schwartz-Maltz said.

"Having the police recognize this as a potential hate crime is a much greater act of deterrence, and a signal that Islamaphobia will not be tolerated", said Mohammed Hashim, a member of the Urban Alliance on Race Relations.

It also came before the first anniversary of a deadly shooting at a mosque in Quebec City that killed six Muslim worshipers during a daily prayer. "But legislative changes are very important".

"This girl was fearless enough to confront the man, look at the man and make a noise, which is very good for her to realize this is wrong".
