When Islamophobia is encouraged by Stephen Harper and his government, what else do you expect?
Montreal police are investigating after an attack on a pregnant Muslim woman.
Police say the woman was going to pick up her daughter from school on Tuesday in the city’s north end, near the Galeries D’Anjou, when two teenagers came up behind her on their bikes and tried to rip off her hijab.
The momentum of their tugging on her head scarf caused her to fall down.
Const. Abdullah Emran said investigators have few details about the culprits because it happened quickly, but said it appears they were boys around 15 years old.
Police are reluctant to call the attack a hate crime, but haven’t ruled out the possibility.
