In a statement, Mr Uczciwek said: "I would like to confirm I never hit or attacked anyone I simply defused the situation by separating them".

Police in London normally see fewer than 40 racist incidents a day, yet a surge in attacks has seen the daily average rise to above 50.

'It's the worst thing that could happen to have it removed, she chooses to wear it and it's for her own reasons.

Ms Abdulkadir said the man also threatened and verbally abused another woman who was present.

Miss Rajeswaran then described how the thug turned on her after she called him racist for his behaviour. Everyone else on the platform ignored us and didn't try to help.

After reporting the incident to the police, Miss Abulkadir posted about the ordeal on Twitter, alongside a picture of the suspects.

Abdulkadir wrote: "He proceeded to verbally abuse my friends and I, pinning one of them against the wall and spitting in her face".

The woman also put up a picture of her alleged attacker and pressed others to share the image so that the suspect could be identified.

A spokesman for the British Transport Police said: "Behaviour like this is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated".

Miss Rajewaran, who has just completed sixth form and is planning on attending university in the Autumn, also recounted the incident on Twitter.

(Web Desk) - Police in the United Kingdom are probing a suspected hate crime after a man allegedly pulled off a Muslim woman's hijab and spat at her friend.

In a series of tweets, Uczciwek argued that the media misreported the incident, using "religion as a scapegoat" because "the media does not even care that a black woman was attacked".

Abdulkadir said when she first revealed the story that when she grabbed hold of her hijab to keep it in place, the man hit her.

"I'd just like to take a moment to emphasise on my disgust on the people who witnessed a grown man pull an 18 year old's hijab and remain silent".

"Believe me, there were more than 20 to 30 people and not a single person helped".
