A number of anti-Muslim incidents have been reported in the UK after the Manchester bombing with a Muslim woman spat on while a teenaged Muslim girl taunted by a passer-by who said, “when are you going to stop bombing people”. A 14-year-old pupil at Manchester Islamic High School for girls was taunted while on her way to school by a passer- by.Mona Mohamed, head teacher at the school, told Radio 4’s Today programme that the teenager had been “upset and hurt” by the comment, “when are you going to stop bombing people”, but had not responded.Mohamed was quoted by The Telegraph as saying that she advised her pupils to keep quiet if they are subjected to Islamophobic abuse. “What’s the point of reacting?” she said. “That’s not the way we’re going to tackle terrorism.” A few hours after the Manchester concert attack an unidentified figure was caught on CCTV attempting to set fire to the door of a mosque in Oldham.
