WATCH: Racist mob attacks Muslim women and children at Ramadan celebration in park

Published

on

Muslim women and children fell victim to a “racist mob” while picnicking at a municipal park.

One woman was knocked unconscious during the attack, according to the BBC. Police and paramedics responded to the fracas at Florence Park in Oxford, England.

The victims where celebrating Eid al-Fitr, the “feast of breaking the fast” that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, when adult Muslims fast from dawn to dusk as one of the Five Pillars of Islam.

“A witness, who did not wish to be named, told BBC News that a woman had been punched and kicked after being hit by a ball from someone in another group,” BBC reported. “A member of the group accused of the attack, who asked not to be named, said the football hit the woman accidentally and at no time did they use or hear any racist language.”

There are conflicting reports as to whether the victims were of Sudanese or Somali origin.

Human rights activists are organizing a “reclaim the park” event in response.

“It is extremely upsetting to hear about this attack on innocent women and children going about their normal business,” Oxford Stand Up To Racism co-chair Mariam Ahmed told the BCC. “Our thoughts are with the victim and family and hope they can recover from this emotionally and continue with their Eid celebrations.”

Over the course of a lengthy interview, Illing asked Jolly how anyone could compare the statements that Graham made about Trump in 2016 with the fierce defenses he's recently been making of the president and not conclude that the South Carolina senator is a blatant fraud.

Nikki Haley buried for Confederate flag ‘heritage’ defense: ‘Pleading to Trump to make her the VP right here’

Published

Former South Carolina governor and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley stepped in it on Friday afternoon after making the bizarre claim that the Confederate flag was a symbol of "service, and sacrifice, and heritage" until convicted murderer Dylann Roof "hijacked" it.

During an interview with conservative talk show host Glenn Beck, Haley stated, "“Here is this guy who comes out with this manifesto, holding the Confederate flag. And [he] had just hijacked everything that people thought of. We don’t have hateful people in South Carolina — there’s always the small minority, that’s always going to be there — but people saw it as service and sacrifice and heritage, but once he did that, there was no way to overcome it.”
