    Exactly what I was thinking. How is Peroxidation tellling me I am judging her based on her looks when he's gone and done the same thing, by trying to tell me her entire life story based on one small detail. And her right to being antisocial is all well and fine by me as long as I don't get shouted at whilst casually walking down the road.
    Hypocrisy at it's finest.

    don't listen to these white people making excuses for her. next time she does something you need to walk right up to her and ask her what her problem is. don't be scared of people like that you have the right to feel comfortable and safe anywhere you go in your area.

    Ok here's a tiny detail I forgot to include. The second time I saw her, when she walked past me and passed through other people there was another Muslim lady who was really focused on her child and not her surroundings. So I was looking closely to see if she would treat her like that aswell, I could have sworn she was walking towards her, glaring and staring at her aswell but because the lady was so focussed on her misbehaving child she had no idea that the woman was even there. I don't know if she said anything to her because I was too far away, but because the lady never gave her eye contact she just gave up and went into the shop. So that suggests she's got an issue with the Religion to me. Like Kisaki said, regardless of her motives, it's not fair for her to attack random strangers like that, I couldn't care less about her reasoning, I don't know her and have not done anything to her therefore neither I or anyone else deserves that treatment. She does look deranged and mental but I've decided I'm going to report her because I shouldn't have to suffer just because she is suffering. I wouldn't expect anyone to take that sort of behaviour from me so why should I take it from her? If she is ill then the police can surely investigate her case and assist her. The next time I see her I will definitely ask her what her problem is but to me that doesn't justify her actions. She was not attacking everyone on the street, just me. So does her mental problem suddenly trigger something when she sees me? Either way I still feel like reporting her for my own safety and the safety of others.
    You are beyond paranoid.

    Stop wasting the police's time. They have better things to do than dealing with some paranoid women who worries that a crazy nutter who looks at them weird is going to kill them. You obviously are very insecure about being Muslim. Maybe it would be better for your own mental health if you ceased to don the burka (or whatever constitutes Islamic dress to you...)

    It's just my personal opinion that she is insulting me because of my Religion. I know I that might not be correct. But that's not the point here, the point is she is possibly a threat and that's why I want to tell the police.
    The thread title says you are being attacked because of your religion (with a small r btw). The very first line of your post says it's because of your religious clothing. Why make such a deal of that aspect if you now say that's not the point? Why not just say 'a woman swore at me'?

    If you get this concerned over anyone who swears and looks at you funny after you've smiled at them I'm guessing you haven't spent much time in a big city.

    Okay. Lets go back to the beginning here. I have not made a single opinion about her based on the fact that she has difficulty walking/walks in an odd way. I merely pointed out that this was most likely due to a medical condition, you however said that she looked "mentally ill" and "evil" because of it. See the difference?

    I provided a hypothesis as to why she walks that way from a purely scientific basis, without using that hypothesis to judge her personality. You made a judgement about her as a person because she walks oddly. I've then expanded on my hypothesis and used it to give a possible reason why she's so antisocial. I didn't say it was fact though, I said they were possibilities with the second hypothesis only being plausible if the first one is correct. Notice how, in the second hypothesis I have once again used it only as a possible explanation for her antisocial behavior. I haven't used it to judge her personality. You can be antisocial and bigoted at the same time, or antisocial and tolerant at the same time. The probabilities of someone having either trait are independent of each other so no conclusions about what she thinks or what kind of person she is can be made.

    This is why you shouldn't go reporting her to the police yet. Unless she explicitly demonstrates a hatred towards Muslims then you will never be able to confirm that this is the case. Since a large number of alternate hypotheses exist from the information you currently have, the probability of a hatred of Muslims being the cause of her behavior remains very small. As it stands, the probability of this whole thing being caused by something else dwarfs the probability of it being caused by racism. With that in mind, jumping to the conclusion of "I'm unsure therefore she's racist" seems pretty illogical don't you think?

    Actually It was my non Muslim friends who pushed me to report her and not leave it so I guess they're a bit paranoid aswell. And nah I'll dress the way I want to thanks.

    I'm sure the police will take your training as a psychiatric nurse into consideration when you describe her mental state of mind to them.

    Oh, well I'm sure that will clear the situation right up. You can have a nice heart to heart over a cup of tea and straighten out any differences you might have while furthering multi-religious cooperation within the community.

    Yes. Clearly you all are. Like another poster said. You must all live in very nice areas, or not urban areas.

    Why would you care about the racist opinions of someone like this? If someone who is likely disturbed has a racist opinion it's nothing. If that person runs the country, yes, you have a problem.

    I don't tbh I was just slightly worried because I see this women so often now and she practically knows my face so Idk what that could lead to. People on here are saying I'm paranoid but they are speaking out of ignorance so I'm just gonna leave it.

    I made an earlier post about my experience with unhinged stalkers; as in people that followed me on several occasions. I think if you feel physically threatened, there is no harm in speaking to a police officer.

    Ummm but not everyone here is white... who's being discriminatory now.... why is it that some Muslims complain that they're being attacked with islamophobia and then go around being racist...? Massively flawed logic right there. What happened to treat people how you want to be treated? Hiding being an anonymous post are we...:yy:

    Maybe she thought you were looking at her judgementally or rudely? Considering how badly muslim males act in Britain these days (at least in my personal experience) she was probably insulted. Or she could have a mental health condition? Who knows

    I personally wouldn't just approach her to ask her what her problem is. If she is as crazy as you think, what makes you sure she's not going to suddenly attack you? At the same time though, with what you have said so far I don't think there's anything the police can charge her with, so it's not like they can do much.

    The main thing is to keep yourself safe, not to 'get back at her', so keep your distance, ignore and avoid. Btw does she swear at you if you walk past with someone else? Just thinking maybe she picks on you because you look small or timid and she thinks it's easy pickings?

    Also most people that have replied have honestly given their opinions and tried to help, it's not very nice to call them ignorant purely because you don't like the advice. I think you have made up your mind to report her to the police. I'd be interested in the result of that if you want to share, I genuinely want to know what they can do in these sort of situations.

    I wouldn't report her. She's clearly just an old woman who's just dissatisfied with her life. Think about it for a minute, we live in a country with free speech so she has the right to swear at you (even though it's rude). If you go to the police you'll be reporting her for glaring at you and swearing a bit. Seems a little overboard don't you think?
    No she certainly does not have the right to swear at him. Freedom of speech does not mean you can say whatever you want to whoever you want wherever you want and whenever you want. There are limits.

    why else would a close minded person verbally attack someone? its either bc of OP's race or religion.

    Actually since she hasn't said anything racist, homophobic, sexist or to do with any other '-ism' she hasn't passed those limits. Swearing at someone isn't nice, but it's not illegal.

    Not to sound rude but get over it, no one cared when my foreign neighbour tries to intimidate me, lets his dog bark at all hours like 5am just to wake me up, dumps dog poop outside my window, threatened me to watch my back or I will get a knife in it and when you speak to him he accuses you of being racist and the bully and thats far more severe than what you get.

    Added to that I am autistic so come across strange so people pick up on that and make horrible comments and people think I should just deal with it.

    Why is it any different because you think its to do with religion? Where was the people to help me when I had comments made over weight or that I am nerdy since that is picking on me for being different? Or does it only matter when race is believed to be involved?

    So she looked at someone who had a misbehaving child who just happened to be muslim therefore the reason she looked was because of that and not because the kid was playing up?
