Shocking moment hijab-wearing girl is attacked from behind and knocked to the floor
Tasneem Kabir suffered broken teeth and a smashed lip after she was hit by Michael Ayoade, 34, as she walked to college in Plaistow, Newham, on the afternoon of November 13, 2012.
He was arrested after police released CCTV footage of the horrific attack (left), which showed Ayoade jogging away from the scene as Miss Kabir lay unconscious on the ground (right). Miss Kabir's assault is an example of the Islamaphobic attacks that are becoming increasingly common in the capital.
