Woman Stands Up For Muslim Couple Being Racially Abused On Train

Everyday heroes are the best kind of heroes and one commuter has become one after standing up to a woman giving abuse to a Muslim family sat opposite her on public transport.

Stacey Eden, 23, heard the middle-aged woman bad-mouthing Muslims and calling the woman opposite her an ISIS supporter simply because she was wearing a hijab.

She posted the video of the incident on Facebook where you can hear her question what the Muslim family had to do with any of the ISIS atrocities being levelled at them.

Stacey Eden posted a video from 15 April to her Timeline.

So i sat there for a good 10 minutes before i started recording this, while i listened to this woman bad mouth muslims and call the lady sitting opposite me an ISIS supporter because she wore a scarf, then she told me to go join ISIS because i was sticking up for her. People like this make me sick. People who are so ignorant and disrespectful to other people who were clearly sitting there minding their own business. 
She was saying some pretty horrible and hurtful things before i spoke up then as soon as i started defending them she stopped.

People need to stop judging and putting others down over religion! EVERY RELIGION HAS GOOD AND BAD but if you take it back to the foundations, every religion is also built on LOVE. To LOVE one another.
The purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticise others.
