A video of a teacher ripping off a Muslim student’s hijab at New Vision Academy Charter school in Nashville, Tennessee has sparked outrage, as attacks against hijab-wearing Muslim women in America are on the rise. In April 2017, a 58-year-old woman was brutally attacking in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Muslim activist Marwa Balkar has also received threats about wearing a hijab.
