Post Office worker verbally assaulted by woman

Netshark reports that a woman verbally assaulted an Asian cashier in a Post Office in Camden High Street, in North London.

The video, which has gone viral on Facebook with more than 500,000 views since it was first posted on January 24, shows the woman verbally abusing the Post Office worker in a seemingly unprovoked attack.

The woman, who claimed the man was “laughing” at her, shouted: “You won’t think it’s funny then, yeah? You won’t be laughing then, you ignorant f**ksh*t. I don’t want to look at you. What woman would want to look at that?”

She then continued her racist rant by shouting: “Make sure you post my card, or else I’ll come back and get a refund, you fat Paki c**t.”

Finally, just as she approached the exit door, the woman bellowed: “Go back to your own country, yeah, you’re not wanted here. You fat motherf****r Paki! Ugly motherf****r!”

Samrat Hanif, the man who recorded the video while waiting in the queue, said: “All of a sudden I heard she is screaming and immediately I started recording”, adding that the workers were friendly to everyone, so he had no idea what could have possibly triggered the woman’s outburst.

Following the accident, a Post Office spokesperson said: “We expect all of our people to be treated with the dignity and respect they deserve and are very concerned by this incident.

“We are investigating and of course offering our full support to the team at the branch involved.”

The Met Police said they have not received a report in relation to the incident, and are not investigating.

Anyone who suffers an Islamophobic hate crime and is in immediate danger should contact police on 999. You can report Islamophobic hate crime to police on the non-emergency number 111 or via MEND’s Islamophobia Response Unit (IRU) here.

Reporting incidents to MEND’s IRU is important because it allows us to monitor levels of abuse and compile accurate data on the levels of Islamophobia – though we would strongly encourage you to also report your experiences to the police.

It is also an important tool for victims as we can help you contact and deal with the police (if you choose to do so), and signpost you towards free legal advice and emotional support that may be available.
