RNA - The Metro newspaper published a video in a report on its website late on Wednesday showing that the girl, unidentified in the report, being dragged to floor and attacked allegedly for wearing a pink headscarf as hijab.
Two girls shove the girl and push her to the ground while other schoolchildren, including the one filming the incident, appear to be cheering on the bullies as they shout “go on”.
The video came right after a similar video went viral on the social media showing the girl’s brother, Jamal, being attacked in the same school in Huddersfield.
The boy, having one arm in cast, is bullied by a much larger schoolboy, pushed to the ground and water boarded while others do nothing to prevent him.
The video sparked huge outrage online and even prompted the police to open charges of assault against the attacker.
According to Press TV, a fund-raising campaign was also launched online with people helping over £100,000 to help the Syrian family in plight.
The family of six has reportedly suffered numerous abuses to its children in the school. The father, Mirban Aslam, a bricklayer from Bradford, said he received the images of attack against his daughter while he was protesting outside Almondbury Community School, where his son had also been bullied. He said students had been told by the teachers not to tell anyone about numerous assaults to the girl and not to share any video footage.
“I think that there might be a cover-up at the school. For this girl’s brother to have his arm broken by bullies and for her to be assaulted on numerous occasions to the point where she’s tried to commit suicide, there’s obviously something very wrong,” said the 41-year-old father, adding, “Why are they protecting the bullies? The school needs to be investigated. The system is failing to protect the victims, something has to be done.”
The father said his boy had been assaulted in October and if it was not for the media, the authorities would never take an action against the attacker.
Britain has seen a dramatic spike in the number of hate attacks, especially against the Muslims and refugees, over the past years. Many blame the authorities for the surge, saying they mostly let attacks against Muslims and other minorities go unnoticed.
