Another Hoax: Police Say Alleged Hijab Incident NOT a Hate Crime
On December 14, an incident at Fairfax High School in Virginia involving a young Muslim woman in a hijab has managed to stir controversy, prompting student protests and an investigation by the Fairfax Police Department.
Ekran Mohammad, the 14-year-old girl in question, claimed she was on the receiving end of racial epithets by classmates who also proceeded to pull on her hijab, showing her hair.
According to a recounting of the incident by the girl’s aunt, one student drew an image of the Islamic flag and crossed it out with an “X.” After class, while walking to meet a friend, Mohammad’s backpack bumped into another male student who then called Mohammad and her friends “ugly and little.”
The event quickly devolved into a scuffle, with the boy grabbing Mohammad’s hijab, her punching the boy in the stomach, and the boy then tossing her into a desk. Paramedics were called to the school to treat Mohammad for a panic attack after the incident.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) immediately jumped into the fray, calling for an investigation into what they said was a hate crime.
A female Muslim student at Fairfax High School in Virginia was reportedly assaulted by a male student who has faced no repercussions. We call on law enforcement to immediately launch a #hatecrime probe into this incident. \n#Islamophobiahttps://www.cair.com/press_releases/cair-calls-for-hate-crime-probe-of-assault-on-virginia-muslim-high-school-student-suspension-of-alleged-assailant-during-investigation/\u00a0\u2026— CAIR National (@CAIR National) 1639689627
It is completely unacceptable that after this horrific assault, the suspect was placed in the same room as the victim. The safety of Muslim students must be ensured. #Islamophobia #HateCrimehttps://t.co/easaff6ivp

But it wasn’t a hate crime. The local police department investigated and found:
A purported hate crime that was protested by CAIR and by hundreds of students, who their groomers said made them "proud" by skipping school to protest, was a hoax.\n\n19,000 signed a petition.https://twitter.com/MarinaMedvin/status/1472275624983207943\u00a0\u2026— Luke Rosiak (@Luke Rosiak) 1639867082
“[T]he physical altercation between two Fairfax High School students was not a hate crime. The investigation revealed there were no racial comments made by either student. The female student confirmed her hijab became partially undone during the altercation, exposing her hair. The female student advised that the information posted on several social media websites, stating that racial comments were used during the altercation were false.”
The investigation notwithstanding, a petition is currently circulating to hold the school accountable.
“As the victim forever has this moment engraved in her mind, has already returned to school with no consequences. This is not right, this should have never happened, and the school is covering this up.”
