Possible hoax alert: Canadian schoolgirl claims man tried to 'cut off her hijab'

Khawlah Noman 11 speaks to reporters at Pauline Johnson Junior Public School after she told police that a man cut her hijab with scissors in Toronto Ontario Canada

Toronto police are investigating an attack on an 11-year-old girl whose hijab was repeatedly cut on her way to school, heightening pressure on Canadian governments to take further action against attacks on Muslims.

The little girl's younger brother said he saw the man pull off the hood of her sister's jacket.

Constable Jenifferjit Sidhu told a press conference that Noman had turned and confronted her assailant, making loud noises to scare him off and then she ran away with her little brother in tow.

But a short time later, the man approached her from behind again and started cutting her hijab once more, she said.

Wearing a white hijab loaned from a friend, Noman quietly told reporters that the light blue hijab she wore to school now had a large cut in it, approximately 30 cm long.

"Police say they are seeking a male suspect described as Asian, in his 20s, with a medium build of roughly 5'8" - 6'0. He said he could not confirm the girl's age or grade. "The community, the school, everyone's been so supportive", said Saima Samad.

Meanwhile, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne termed the incident as the act of hatred and cowardice.

Khawlah said she is now afraid to walk to school, but was comforted by the support of her school and family.

A spokesperson for the Toronto District School Board said the school where the student belongs is multicultural and inclusive.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau weighed in from London, Ontario, where he was meeting with his Cabinet. "I'm just a kid". The siblings said he had black hair with straight bangs to the eyebrows, a thin mustache and black prescription glasses.

Condemning the attack, Trudeau tweeted: " My heart goes out to Khawlah Noman following this morning's cowardly attack on her in Toronto. And we'll be working closely with police to offer any assistance that we can. "We must stand firm in our support of this young girl who was assaulted simply for wearing a hijab".

Toronto Mayor John Tory says he is "shocked and appalled" to hear about the assault. "Intolerance and hate of any kind, including islamophobia, has no place in our city, our province, or our country". "This is not who we are". I am so proud to be a Canadian, and I want to give (the attacker) the same message'.
