Pregnant Muslim woman assaulted by French men
A heavily pregnant woman has been hospitalised in France after being assaulted by two men in what her husband claims was an ‘Islamophobic act’.
One of the attackers hit 29-year-old Kedidja, who was wearing a headscarf, several times and threw her to the ground as she dropped her two children off at school in Toulouse, La Depeche reports.
Her husband Munir says they grabbed her hair and pulled at her veil while yelling ‘none of that here’ at the nine-months-pregnant woman who is due to give birth in mid-April.
She is now recovering and her unborn baby is believed to be unharmed, but her husband revealed that she has not stopped crying since the attack on Tuesday morning.
The woman’s husband, 33, has labelled the attack as Islamophobic, telling French newspaper La Depeche that one of the men grabbed his wife’s hair, pulled at her veil while yelling ‘none of that here’ [pas de ça chez nous].
It is understood the attacker’s friend stopped the attack, before the pair yelled racist abuse, reportedly threatened to kill the woman, and then fled the scene.
Will the #jesuischarlie crew chime in and condemn this crime now?
