A Muslim woman claims she was assaulted and spat at by a racist thug during a business trip to London.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - A Muslim woman claims she was assaulted and spat at by a racist thug during a business trip to London.

Nahella Ashraf, 46, from Manchester, had been attending after a conference in Hammersmith on Friday, when she was approached and attacked by the stranger.

Police are now investigating the attack and the incident has prompted anti-racism campaigners to stage a protest in the capital.

Nahella, a researcher for a government department, told the Manchester Evening News she was taking a lunchbreak at a nearby fish and chip shop when she was accosted by a stranger.

The man grabbed her by the arm and tried to throw her out, telling her she ‘shouldn’t be here.’

One of her companions tried to push the man out the way along with a staff-worker, asking the man what his problem was.

Referring to her religion, he replied: “People like her, they kill.”

As the staff member began escorting the man out, he spat in Nahella’s face.

He then left, and staff at the takeaway phoned the police.

Horrified, Nahella, who was wearing hijab, said: “I was totally shocked, it all seemed to happen so quickly. I have never had this before.

“It really shook me up. The staff were really nice, they said he had issues.

“I’m really surprised this has happened in London, especially in Hammersmith where it’s so multicultural. It just goes to show how serious this situation is. I needed to say something.”

Nahella, who is a member of anti-racist campaign group Stand Up To Racism contacted the local branch in London to tell them what happened to her.
