Two Muslim Women Attacked after Leaving a Mosque in Tampa


Two Muslim women in the Tampa Bay area were attacked after leaving a Mosque. One woman was shot at and another was driven off the road.

The woman that was shot at did not suffer any injuries. The other woman, who had rocks and other objects thrown at her to attempt to run her car off the road, was also uninjured. No suspects have been apprehended.

Muslims have faced an enormous increase in attacks since the San Bernardino terrorist shootings.

According to Shilby Hassan, the director for the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), this type of incident is reported every day:

“The American Muslim community is proud of its contributions in society, and it’s unfortunate that certain politicians are attacking the entire Muslim faith and people for the horrendous actions of a few people.”

Unfortunately, as many experts have stated, this kind of divide between Muslims and non-Muslims in America is all part of ISIS’ plan to make Muslims feel isolated in order to turn them into supporters of radical Islam.
