Pak woman in burqa assaulted at Niagara Falls
Islamabad: A 26-year-old Pakistani woman wearing a hijab was assaulted while on a visit to the famous Niagara Falls.
The woman was on her way to meet her husband in a parking lot when two American women in a van shouted ethnic and racial slurs before physically attacking her, the Nation reports.
The two women continued yelling at the victim even after she met her husband in the parking lot, and when the victim asked why they were swearing at her, the two women got out of the van and assaulted her.
Before her husband could intervene, the victim was slapped in the face, knocked to the ground, punched and kicked repeatedly.
Her hair was also pulled, and she suffered bruises, pain and swelling on her head and body.
One of the attackers was charged with third-degree assault as a hate crime. The second assailant is being sought by police.
