Hate crime incidents have spiked in the UK following a suicide bombing at a concert in Manchester that claimed 22 lives and an attack in London by three terrorists. A woman in the UK was allegedly pushed to the ground and her hijab ripped off amid a spike in hate crime incidents following the two terror attacks by Islamists that claimed 30 lives. The assault took place in Fengate, Peterborough, after the woman got out of her car and crossed the road with her three-year-old daughter when she was pushed from behind and knocked to the ground. She had her hijab pulled off and thrown towards her. No words were exchanged in the assault, but police have confirmed they are treating it as a racially or religiously aggravated hate crime, Peterborough Telegraph reported. The male offender was described as white, tall, of medium build and wearing a black hooded top with the head pulled up.
