A shocking video has surfaced in which a Hijabi woman is seen launching a racist attack on an Indian co-passenger travelling in a crowded 195 bus from Romney Highway in Brentford, West London on Saturday.
The Muslim woman can be heard screaming: “You smell of curry you dumb b***h”- causing everyone on the bus to gasp. While the mother refrains the daughter from further persecuting the co-passenger, the daughter is heard screaming further: “No let me hit.”
Moreover, when the Indian passenger defended himself saying that the bus passengers agreed with him: “Oh everyone’s on my side”, the furious girl retorted back by yet another racist remark: “Ok bye b***h. Go back to your f*****g Southall slum.”
Notably, Southall in West London is famous among Indians and other tourists from South Asia, and is sometimes dubbed “Little India”, but it rarely, if ever, appears on lists of major tourist attractions in London. It houses more than 4000 Indians especially Sikhs.
The Muslim lady was heard shouting at the male passenger as he tried to calm the mother-daughter duo who got into an altercation with the bus driver. A fight erupted after the young girl’s mother had an argument with the bus driver in which she told the driver that the bus was overcrowded and that he was letting too many people on the vehicle.
This altercation annoyed the Indian male passenger as he felt that the duo was disrupting the bus journey by engaging in a fight with the driver. As the male co-passenger tried to discourage the young woman’s mother from arguing with the driver and let the bus move, the enraged girl in the hijab proceeded to launch the shocking rant at the man.
Social media users were disgusted by the scenes in the appalling video footage and condemned this unfortunate incident of racial discrimination.
