A Muslim woman who appears to have become one of the first victims of the so-called Punish a Muslim Day has told her attacker she hopes they 'find peace'.
Ramla Tyrow, 22, from East London, was picking her mum up from work yesterday morning when she was reportedly attacked by someone in a 'white van' pouring liquid all over her.
Writing on Twitter, the Psychology and Counselling graduate said: "For everyone that was saying 'Punish a Muslim day' is a joke, I just got attacked picking my mum up from work."
In a follow-up message to her 8,000 followers, the YouTuber added: "I was waking to my car & a white van pulled up and they covered me in liquid. I thought it was acid at first, guys please stay safe, THIS IS NOT A JOKE."
ICYMI, Punish a Muslim day came about after anonymous leaflets were mailed to addresses across the country last month calling for April 3 to be a day of violence against Muslims.
The letters appeared to target several cities with large Muslim populations, including London and Bradford in the UK.
The worrying letters explain how points will be awarded for certain acts of violence - from 25 points for removing a woman's headscarf to 500 points for murdering a Muslim.
In response, hundreds of people are urging Muslims to stay safe and even offering free lifts to people feeling concerned about the possible threats.
Ramla, a Middlesex University graduate, who runs her own YouTube channel, later posted a picture which read: "Dear world, Punish a Muslim day is coming to an end, I pray everyone effected is in good health both mentally & physically.
"Islam is a religion of love, peace and harmony. We all bleed the same, cry the same and hurt the same.
"What happened to me was nothing to what could have happened. I pray Allah protects those that have suffered and those that have taken part I pray you find peace within yourself.
"Thank you for those that reached out, enquiring about my well being but let this be the start of teaching love to those that don't know how to love.
"No religion is based on hate. May God protect us all, no one should suffer based on their beliefs & the way THEY choose to live their life. God is great."
Counter Terrorism Policing North East confirmed that it had received reports of 'potentially malicious communications' sent to individuals across the UK.
