1120 Trutherist Probably a publicity stunt done by her or her mom. **EDIT** Why the downvotes? Turns out that I was absolutely right!
1122 neachyy Asking the government to "tackle Islamophobia" seems to be asking for trouble. Why not just prosecute people under established assault and hate crime laws?
13 emo_sponge_420 I knew this smelt fishy. You should have to make up hate crimes if theyre such a big of an issue.

21 cultsarebad If you wanted to write a fictional story about a hijab attack, cutting it with scissors (think about that realistically) is waaay more dramatic than just pulling it off. Makes great copy and is instant clickbait. Let's shine some light on this investigation and see what we find.
201 Waterwoo This seems.. weird. First, having lived in Toronto, at this point I think most neighborhoods are more than half 'minority'. It's really not a racist place. Second, there was a crowd of people and nobody did anything about a guy running up with scissors twice over 10 min? And her brother didn't do anything? I would not be shocked if this story is not 100% true. My best guess: She cut/ripped her hijab in some other way, or some students did it as a mean prank in class, and she was scared of her parents getting mad. EDIT: I was right, it did not happen.
767 BeigeLion As we've seen in the past when the culprit isn't caught at first it often times comes out later as a hoax. So maybe let's slow down and wait for actual evidence before we start accusing people of being cowardly Islamaphobes. Edit: Many thanks for the gold kind stranger. Today is a good day for patience and sanity.
5 stalepicklechips Toronto is one of the most accepting places on earth. I hear 3 or 4 different languages on the subway everyday. Ive never seen any openly racist comments or attacks on other ethnicities/religions. Im sure there are dicks out there who are racist but they are a tiny minority and arent the kind of people who will change because of some gov't education ect
