A young Muslim student was ‘spat at and called a terrorist’ on a London bus while other passengers ‘smiled and did nothing’, it has been claimed.
Irqa Mohamed, 20, said she was the victim of a racist rant while she was wearing a hijab on the bus in Islington.
She said she ‘did not think she would leave the bus alive’, alleging a ‘crazed’ man spat at her and racially abused her while other passengers did nothing last Sunday.
In a tweet she later deleted, she said: ‘A white man spat at me in a buss [sic] of people and kept on cussing me out cause of my Hijaab while people smiled a laughed along.’
Miss Mohamed, of Finsbury Park, said she was on the vehicle with a friend but when they got up to get off a man started shouting at her.
She told the Evening Standard: ‘He moved seats and then called me a racist and a terrorist. He started to go crazy. He said people like me were coming into this country and taking all the jobs.’
She added: ‘I do think it’s sad no one spoke up for me. The bus was full at one point and you could tell no one wanted anything to deal with him.’
