NEW YORK: The anti-Muslim scenario created by Donald Trump has put many Muslim women on alert due to increased attacks and threats in US.

Reports say many Hijab-wearing Muslim women are so fearful that they are taking steps to defend themselves through different techniques.

In this regard, workshops and coaching classes are being held by the Muslim communities in the US to tech women their self protection and handle any danger confidently.

A lady in such a workshop shared her views: “A woman grabbed my hijab and my face cover and she stated shouting, ‘you will all be in prison, you will all go to jail.”

The Muslim Community Network said a recent increase in hate crimes inspired the organization to offer a self-defense class, having no idea that nearly 3,000 women would sign up.

The women learned specific techniques to ward off attackers.

The techniques include strike, yell, a deep breath, walking away or using your words, anything that needs to be done to stay safe via self-defense.

While the women hope they never have to employ the tactics, they all agreed preparation is the best way to fight off a predator.

Organizers said they were flooded with requests to take the class, and many want to have it offered on a regular basis.
