Australia: Muslim woman suffers broken arm following a racist attack

Tuesday, 28 October 2014

A Muslim woman is nursing a broken arm after being pushed onto a road in an unprovoked racist attack in the Australian city of Melbourne, a report said.

The attack occurred outside a Lalor shopping center in the middle of a weekday earlier this month, the Weekly Review reported.

The 48-year-old woman, who was wearing a Hijab and a Islamic dress, had been shopping at Lalor Plaza and was on her way home when she was attacked.

The woman’s daughter, Abrar Ahmed, saw the incident unfold from her car.

“A man approached my mom and said, ‘You Muslims, go back to where you came from’,” Ahmed said.

“As my mom turned around to see who was yelling at her in such a disgusting way, she saw this really big guy,” she added.

“He pushed her on the ground, she landed in the middle of the road. When she fell on the ground she broke her arm.”

“A lot of other Muslim women, they have been going through worse assaults, they are being attacked in very different ways and they don’t have the courage to speak out,” she further said.
