Leftist media bent over backwards to push this story. Now it’s proven false they’ll most likely ignore any follow-up. Another Hate Hoax Accuser who made it all up:
Seweid had numerous opportunities to admit the incident never happened but again and again stood by her story, the source said.
A Muslim student who said she was harassed on the subway by drunken, hate-spewing white men shouting “Donald Trump!” found herself behind bars Wednesday after telling cops she made the whole story up.
Yasmin Seweid, 18, joined a growing list of local and national alleged hate crime victims when she told cops that she was taunted Dec. 1 on the No. 6 train by three men who called her a terrorist and tried to snatch her hijab off her head while straphangers did nothing but watch.
But Seweid finally broke down and admitted to detectives that it was all a big lie.
“Nothing happened, and there was no victim,” a police source said.
“We dedicated a lot of resources to this — and don’t get me wrong, this is what we do — but we had guys going back and forth, looking for video and witnesses. And we couldn’t find anything.”
It was not immediately clear why Seweid lied to the police — and the media — about such a sensitive topic.
Seweid, a Baruch College student, has been charged with filing a false report and was awaiting arraignment late Wednesday.
Seweid claimed straphangers stood by and did nothing while the trio mocked her and tried to tear the religious garb from her head. Seweid even provided police a description of the suspects, one of whom cops at one point thought they spotted on video following her when she got off the subway at Grand Central Terminal.
For a while, police believed inconsistencies in her story to be nothing more than typical lapses by someone who was traumatized. The doubts increased when detectives could not find witnesses or any significant video. She left home and was reported missing on Thursday — only to turn up safe and sound on Friday. Suspicion went through the roof.
On Wednesday, after again being confronted with questions from detectives, Seweid admitted she made it all up, citing family problems. The police source said charging her with a crime was appropriate.
Seweid’s father, Syeed, 55, said he didn’t know why his daughter made up the story.
“I have no idea,” he said. “She’s the one that can speak for herself.”
Albert Kahn, an attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the twist in Seweid’s case shouldn’t take away from the legitimate claims of bias and harassment against Muslims. This clown needs his head read!
“We’re very disturbed by these distressing developments, but we hope that they do not detract from the numerous reports coming from the Muslim community,” Kahn said.👽
“Clearly this has been a trying time for her and her family. We hope that they receive all possible support in this moving forward. We still believe that anti-Muslim attacks are 🤑 underreported.”
