A woman wearing a hijab was waiting at the tube station when suddenly the man standing behind her shoves her onto an oncoming train.

A man has reportedly been charged with attempted murder after he was arrested for trying to push a woman into the path of an oncoming train at Piccadilly Station in London.
British Transport Police said the incident was “shocking” and is now appealing for information, according to The Sun newspaper.

The woman escaped with grazes to her face before being taken to a local hospital to receive treatment for her injuries.
Although it hasn’t been mentioned or confirmed by the police or British newspapers, many believe it could be an Islamophobic hate crime.
Internet users sharing the CCTV footage of the incident claim the pensioner attacked the woman because she was wearing a hijab, a traditional veil used by Muslim women to cover the head and chest.
