Non-Muslim hijab draws racist attacks

Taking the decision to wear hijab after developing a sun allergy, Dennis Queen could not imagine the amount of racist attacks Muslim women face in their daily life.

“People immediately assume I’m Muslim. I don’t mind that but I find the racist comments just disgusting,” Queen told The Express newspaper. “I’ve been called a race traitor and it’s really opened my eyes to the kind of daily racism Muslims have to put up with.”
