A 21-year-old woman, Angelique Sloss, was sunbathing with her friends at Léo Lagrange park in France, when she was approached by 5 Muslim females, who verbally abused her for ‘immorality’ and exposing too much in a public place.
The victim yelled back and things escalated quickly.
The five Muslim women, aged between 16 to 24, punched and slapped her but soon the witnesses intervened.
The attackers were arrested by the police and will appear in court in September, as reported by Tribune .
This attack has resulted in a massive outrage on Twitter where people are tweeting in support of the victim by posting bikini-clad pictures.
So wearing a Bikini is considered highly immoral but beating someone up is just fine?! #jeportemonmaillotauParcLeo— ♥Tina Patel♥ (@Tina1807) July 27, 2015
A lot of Anti-Islam tweets are also floating because of the same incident. The Mayor of Reims, Arnaud Robinet opened up and said, “ We have to be very careful not to jump to conclusions. All the same, I can understand why people have assumed that this attack had religious motives. If that turns out to be the case, it is a very serious incident. ”
