Muslim women often victimised, report says
More and more headscarf-wearing women are becoming victims of racist attacks, according to an organisation's annual report.
Civil courage and anti-racism institution ZARA said yesterday (Mon) it had been informed of 745 cases of racist abuses in Austria last year, around 50 fewer than in 2009.
The organisation – which stressed that the actual number of offences is much higher – emphasised that the number of verbal abuses of devout Muslims wearing headscarves was on the rise.
