Sexual Harassment for Pulling a Woman's Hijab

This petition had 521 supporters

Pulling a woman's blouse in public and without her permission warrants arrest for sexual harassment.  Given what Hijab (or any head covering) represents to a woman of any faith (such as a nun, a jewish woman, an amish, or even a woman battling cancer), it should be considered in the same category.  A woman does not want her blouse pulled and her body exposed, so why is it acceptable for a woman who covers her hair be subjected to the humiliation of being exposed in public.  A woman's hijab represents full covering same as a blouse.  There has been an 80% rise in attacks against Muslims and some non-Muslims who are perceived as Muslims.  This would go a long way in slowing down the trend.
