Muslim Woman Asks For Directions - Never Expected Man To Respond Like This

A Muslim woman wearing her hijab didn't think much of it when she stopped and asked a man for directions. The encounter turned out to be an explosive verbal racist attack full of expletives.

The woman and another witness recorded the encounter in which the man taunted the Muslim woman for her head covering.

Kaniz Fatima was traveling with her family when she asked a fellow motorist in a Manitoba parking lot for directions. Instead of helping, the man started yelling offensive expletives at her.

Fatima, a young teacher from Calgary, whipped out her camera and began filming. The man identified himself as a 'Nazi' and told her to take her 'head towel off'.

When Fatima argued that she was Canadian and could dress any way she wants, the man shot back that her head covering 'supports Muslims', and told her to 'go back' to her own country.

Another passerby was shocked by the exchange and started filming. Kaniz shouted at the man, "You are being racist!"

"I'm a f--king Nazi b--ch! Take your head towel off in this country."

When she kept calling him racist, the man kept answering, "I'm a Nazi!"

When Fatima kept calling him racist, he responded finally, "Do you know what a Nazi is?"

"This is my country," Fatima shouted, saying she loves Canada.

"No it's not!" the man shot back.

The other woman filming interrupted the heated exchange. "Excuse me sir, what are you doing? No seriously, this is embarrassing, don't do that," she said.

She then tells Fatima, "You don't even have to explain yourself because you're just as much Canadian as he is. This is embarrassing. Don't even let this bother your day."

"Seriously just go. You have a problem. A serious problem," the woman added, trying to diffuse the situation.

Fatima wrote about the incident on Facebook. "Get ready to face those RACIST, filthy comments if you have your hijab on. It happened to me, it might happen to you," she wrote.

She admitted later to the CBC, "His comments actually shocked me a lot and then I was scared too... I felt a responsibility to talk against racism, to stand up against Islamophobia."

“I felt like I need to uphold my Canadian values and stand up for inclusion and justice because this is our country and we belong to this country,” Fatima explained.

Fatima and her family eventually drove away, but she said later she has nothing but praise and respect for the woman who intervened.

"This man doesn't represent Canada. The other two ladies who stood up for us, they truly represent Canada," she said.

Muslim discrimination and racial tensions have been rising in Canada, with many similar exchanges being brought to light in recent months. Some blame it on the U.S., noting that the xenophobia of President Donald Trump has been spilling over the border.

Others point to Muslim refugees and problems that have risen in other countries. Either way, hate is not limited to any specific location.
