The video shows the girl being verbally abused in Croydon, South London, by the woman because she was wearing a head covering. The girl’s sister Lareb Naseem (left) posted the footage online.

In the video of the abuse, the abuser’s face cannot be seen. But she is heard saying: ‘You need to move away from your house you need to move away from the area.’
‘What have I done?’ the teenager replied. The aggressor added: ‘Do you understand you are a problem in the community. You have caused a problem.’
The teen said back: ‘Me personally? Are you talking about me being a hijabi? I’m a problem in the community for living my own life and minding my own business?’
