This kind of thing frequently happens in the U.S. as well. The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wants and needs hate crimes against Muslims, because they’re the currency they use to buy power and influence in our victimhood-oriented society, and to deflect attention away from jihad terror and onto Muslims as putative victims. Hamas-linked CAIR, designated a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates, and other Muslims have on many occasions not hesitated to stoop even to fabricating “hate crimes,” including attacks on mosques. Most notably, in February, a New Jersey Muslim was found guilty of murder that he tried to portray as an “Islamophobic” attack, and in 2014 in California, a Muslim was found guilty of killing his wife, after first blaming her murder on “Islamophobia.”
“Muslim woman fined after LYING about being attacked for wearing hijab,” by Selina Sykes, Express, January 8, 2016:
A Muslim woman has been fined for lying to police about being attacked for wearing a hijab[.]
The 18-year-old student, known only as Miss Choudhury, said she was violently shoved from behind and punched in the face by a man in Birmingham city centre 10 days after the atrocities in the French capital on November 13.
The teenager told detectives she thought she was targeted on November 23 because she was wearing Islamic headwear.
But police, who treated it as a hate crime, found no evidence of the attack after spending hours trawling through CCTV footage in and around New Street where the assault allegedly took place.
The woman was given a £90 fine for wasting police time after officers even accompanied her to the scene to retrace her steps.
Miss Choudhury said she was too scared to walk alone after the made-up attack and claimed Muslims were being targeted after the atrocities in the French capital.
She said: “I feel shocked and really scared that someone could attack you for no reason.
“I don’t feel safe at all now.
“I was walking to the train station to meet some friends when someone shoved me from behind.
“When I turned around he punched me in the face and then just went off.”
She added: ”I was really upset afterwards.
“I can only think it was because he saw my hijab as he didn’t take my bag or anything.”
Speaking of the Paris attacks, Miss Choudhury said: “It’s made life harder for innocent Muslims.
“We don’t want people to be killed, that’s not our religion. Our religion is all about peace.
“My parents are so scared that they’re telling me to take my hijab off.”…
