CALIFORNIA – A Muslim woman was allegedly egged because she wore a hijab as she was exiting a Walmart on Sunday in northern California.

Farad Afshar,  a student at Chabot Community College in Hayward, posted to Instagram that his mother was targeted by a group of men while leaving the store with his younger sister.

They had spotted her while she was shopping and stalked the mother and daughter as they exited.

The men smashed eggs onto the mother’s head and body, presumably because she was wearing hijab.

“My mom is the most kindhearted, loving, and selfless person you’ll ever meet. She has a great amount of pride and respect for her religion, culture, and customs. The fact that she can’t walk out of her home without feeling safe is sickening,” Afshar said on Instagram after posting a picture of his mother covered in eggs.

“I am at loss for words due to the immense amount of hate that is in this world. No one should have to see their mom broken because of a couple of people having disgusting prejudices about people that do not look like them.” he added.

    I feel bad for the mother but more bad for the son. How distressing it is to see your mother humiliated like that.

    Carry a weapon next time.

    Such attempts are from the kind of people who say, “How DARE you oppress women, when we’d rather do it ourselves?”

    Oh, is this another one of those misguided attempt to protect Muslim women from oppression?

    Notice these cowards never do this kind of stuff to a man unless they outnumber him. This was a cowardly act. They probably watch Fox News and think Trump is God.

    Ugh, more division the LAST thing the country needs >:(

    What a despicable incident ! I would be in favour of a police investigation of this attack and lobbying both Walmart and the local law enforcement officials to punish the offenders.
