A Muslim transit worker was shoved down a flight of stairs and called a “terrorist” at New York’s Grand Central Station.


[This happened] two days after police say a man threatened to slit the throat of a Muslim NYPD officer. Soha Salama, 45, suffered a twisted knee and swollen ankle. She says she was riding a train to work while wearing her Metropolitan Transportation Authority uniform and a head covering when a man confronted her, reports NBC New York. “He kept telling me I should go back to my country. He said, ‘You’re a terrorist. You shouldn’t work here.'” Police say he followed her into Grand Central Terminal and pushed her down the flight of stairs, per CBS New York.
