According to a story by Mary Abdelmassih for the Assyrian International News Agency (AINA), Maggie Milad Fazez said that as she entered the crowded train car she accidentally pushed the veiled woman to go inside, which led to a heated exchange between them. The veiled woman told Maggie, who has long hair, "You don't know what I will do to you."
AINA said when the girl left the train, she was shocked to find her hair cut off and lying on the collar of her jacket. The incident took place yesterday morning as Maggie was on her way to Zaytoun Preparatory School.
Her father said that Milad Fazez has not been eating, and is suffering psychologically because of this incident.
AINA said that Dr. Naguib Gabriel, head of the Egyptian Union of Human Rights Organization, said that this was the second time in a week that a schoolgirl has had her hair cut off. The first was a girl in first grade at Saray el Koba High School, he said.
AINA said Gabriel asked the Minister of Interior to quickly find this veiled women who is cutting the hair of students and bring her to trial.
AINA said this is similar to the veiled school teacher in Luxor who is standing for trial for cutting off the hair of two of her students last month because they did not wear a Hijab.
