Hijab-wearing girl attacked in Scarborough

Girl attacked on way to school by scissor-wielding man who cut her hijab. Interestingly, the quoted CTV article reads "male suspect attacked a Muslim girl".

Forgive my ignorance, but do any other religions, beside Muslim women, wear the hijab? If not, why does the article explicitly state that she is Muslim? Is that necessary? Also, this happened in Scarborough. If it happened in Etobicoke (i.e. Ford county) I would have understood. But Scarborough?

Lol, do you even live in Toronto? Etobicoke is where Toronto's Somalian community is based out of. Just because Ford is from there doesn't make it "Alabama". It's more multicultural than Mississauga.

The girl's religion is much more offensive to OP than the news about a grown man assaulting a child.

Ridiculous.

Why didn't you quote the whole paragraph? That way you didn't have to make it sound like you have an agenda.

This is what the first paragraph said:
Toronto police say a male suspect attacked a Muslim girl walking to school in Scarborough and allegedly cut her hijab with a pair of scissors.
You want people to forgive your ignorance, but you are not helping yourself. Or maybe you don't.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Sikh men wear turbans. If this was an attack on a Sikh man wearing a turban, headlines would read Sikh man and Sikh is a religion (followers of Sikhism). Why not mention religion when the attack was result of the 11 year old's religious garments?

Earlier reports thought it was 2 girls being attacked by the same guy but later it was found she was attacked TWICE in 10 minutes by this Asian guy.

They described the suspect as an Asian male in his 20s with a medium build. He is between five-feet-eight to six-feet-tall.

He has black hair and a moustache. He was last seen wearing glasses, a black hoodie and black pants.
Hopefully the idiot is caught and faces significant punishment.

Surely he shouldn't be hard to find.
