A MAN made ‘shooting sounds’ at a Muslim woman in Oxford just days after 50 people died in an attack on two mosques in New Zealand, according to the website TellMAMA.

The woman told the website she was walking to work when she heard the man make the noises from his van at around 11am yesterday.

TellMAMA (Measuring Anti-Muslim Attacks), which allows people to report anti-muslim incidents, said the woman, who was wearing a hijab at the time, was 'shocked' and scared following the incident.

It is not clear if it was reported to the police.

Oxford City councillor Shaista Aziz said: “I’m very disturbed by the reports from TellMama regarding a Muslim woman in our city being intimidated in this way.

"It’s important all victims of hate crime report incidents to the police or third party reporting sites.

"Should the woman want to discuss the incident directly with the police in Oxford I would be very keen to support her in doing so because I know the police want to investigate hate crimes.”

The alleged incident comes after swastikas were daubed across a back wall of Cheney School at the weekend, alongside a reference thought to relate to the New Zealand shooting last week.

Oxford City Council and staff at the school acted swiftly to remove the graffiti, which was spotted Saturday morning, before students returned yesterday.

A multi-faith meeting organised by Thames Valley Police will be held at the Asian Cultural Centre in Manzil Way tomorrow from 6pm to allow people of all religions to discuss concerns and issues.
