The 35-year-old woman dressed in traditional Muslim clothing had been walking along Fifth Avenue and was outside the Valentino store at 9pm when the alleged attack occurred. She quickly patted the small flame out herself and noticed a man standing nearby with a lighter in his hand.
DNA Info The woman from Scotland., Nemariq Alhinai, 35, said felt a warm sensation on her left arm, and noticed the sleeve of her blouse was charred and smoldering but she was not hurt. After patting the fire out, she noticed a man standing near her with a lighter in his hand. Neither said a word to the other before the man walked eastbound on East 54th Street after the incident, the NYPD said. (But she never saw him actually do anything to her)
The woman refused medical attention at the scene, sources said. Police searched the area following the incident but couldn’t find the perpetrator, the NYPD said. The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is wasting it’s time trying to determine if it was motivated by bias toward Muslims.
Ibrahim Hooper, chief spokesjihadist for designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), urged a full “hate crime” investigation.
In the video below, al-Jazeera allows Hooper to whine about this non-event and other examples of anti-Muslim incidents in America.
