Toronto Child’s Hijab Cutting Did Not Happen
On Friday, an 11 year old girl, Khawlah Noman, her brother and mother held a news conference in Toronto. The girl told the story of a man with scissors who ran up behind her on the way to school, yanked off her hood, and cut her hijab. She even said she screamed and he ran away but came back again and cut it a second time. Police have concluded the incident did not happen.
“Me and my brother were walking to school, and sadly someone started assaulting me by cutting my hijab, two times, and I felt very scared….”

The incident gained international attention. Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau expressed outrage.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he can’t imagine how afraid an 11-year-old Toronto girl who had her hijab cut must have been.
“I want her and her family and her friends and community to know that that is not what Canada is and that is not who Canadians are.”

The world flew into a heated discussion once again of hate crimes and “Islamophobia.” And, as usual, police conducted an investigation and interviewed a lot of people…only to find it was all a hoax. Which happens a lot with children who are taught to lie. Remember the boy who cried “wolf?” Oh that’s right, children aren’t taught those things anymore are they?
Her school expressed relief that the incident did not happen.

Last week, the world watched as a Toronto girl said a man tried to cut her hijab as she walked to school. It was the perfect story for TV & Twitter; the media sensationalized & lapped it up. Muslim activists pushed for more Islamophobia awareness. pic.twitter.com/5yB1k0PPCO
