(First name?) Choudhury, 18, said she was attacked on New Street in Birmingham because she was wearing Islamic headwear. She told police that she was knocked to the floor in the “racist” (What ‘race’ is Islam?) attack and that other Muslims in the area were being targeted following the French massacre, which saw Muslim jihadists kill 130 people and injure 352 at various locations in Paris in last November. (So, why are the media hiding her face?)
UK Daily Mail (h/t f5vly) Speaking about the made-up attack on November 23, 2015, Miss Choudhury, who did not want her first name to be revealed, said she had been left too scared to walk through in the city alone. 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. ‘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.
‘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. My mum’s telling me to wear a hat instead.’
Despite her claims, investigations by West Midlands Police revealed that Miss Choudhury had made up the attack. Detectives trawled through CCTV footage in and around Birmingham’s main shopping street in a bid to identify an offender from the November 23 ‘attack’.
They even accompanied Miss Choudhury on a walk through the city centre to help her pinpoint the exact location of the attack. But after monitoring her movements on footage from that morning, officers found no evidence of the alleged assault.
Superintendent Andy Parsons, from West Midlands Police, said: ‘Detectives spent countless hours looking through footage from the network of city centre CCTV cameras in a bid to piece together what happened.
‘The footage shows her walking normally along New Street and at no stage does she appear in distress or seen reacting to anything. West Midlands Police revealed she has now been fined £90 for wasting police time. (She should have been jailed)
