Muslim girl reportedly terrorized because of her Islamic religious beliefs

A 13-year-old Muslim girl was reportedly terrorized in Staten Island because of her religion. Most recently, her head scarf was yanked off by an 11-year-old, according to published reports. The girl allegedly said she has been labeled with the name "Terrorist" by her peers, due to her Islamic heritage.

Meanwhile, the girl is an eighth-grade honors student at Berta Dreyfus Intermediate School 49 in Stepleton. The abuse has reportedly been going on for three months. During the most pronounced of the attacks, it is reported that the girl's lip was busted and her headdress was tattered.

The NY Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every walk of life, for careers in ministry.
