Muslim hero breaks up train beating

116 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The Good Samaritan who tried to stop the Christmas-versus-Chanukah subway beating has two black eyes and a sore nose - but no regrets.

"I did what I thought was right," said Hassan Askari, 20. "I did the best that I could to help."

Askari, a Bangladeshi Muslim studying at Berkeley College in Manhattan, was on a Q train headed to Brooklyn late Friday when he came to the aid of young women confronted by a group of 10 thugs.

Fearful for the women's safety, he pushed one of the men away - and was then pounced on by the group, he said.

"They grabbed me and punched and beat me up," Askari said.

"They punched me first. I didn't get a chance to punch him back."

Askari, all of 5-feet-7 and 140 pounds, said he was left with a swollen face.

He said he didn't go to the doctor because he's too busy working two waiter jobs and doesn't have the money for medical care.

He was mystified as to why the men became so outraged when the women and their male friends wished them a "Happy Chanukah" while they were yelling "Merry Christmas" on the train car.

"I don't understand," he said. "They were just being nice."

One of the Jewish victims, Walter Adler, expressed amazement that Askari took the risk to try to help.

"That a random Muslim kid helped some Jewish kids, that's what's positive about New York," said Adler, 23, who suffered a broken nose and required four stitches to close a lip wound.

Askari's interference allowed Adler to pull the emergency brake, which alerted police to trouble on the train.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

::There’s a laugh in my eyes::

There’s a waltz in my walk

And it’s been such a long time

Since there was hope in my talk

If you never knew

What it is that’s new.. it’s you

‘Cause when your hands are in mine

You set a fire that everyone can see

And it’s burning away

Every bad memory

To tell you the truth

If it’s something new.. baby it’s you

It’s you in the morning

It’s you in the night

A beautiful angel came down

To light up my life

The world’s a different place

Where nothing’s too hard to say

And nothing’s too hard to do

Never too much to go through

To tell you the truth

Everything that’s new.. baby it’s you

It’s you in the morning

It’s you in the night

A beautiful angel came down

To light up my life

My life, my life

Ohh

So if I get to grow old (oh if I get to grow old)

With many years behind me (many years behind me)

There’s only one thing I want (aahh)

One thing I need beside me

For all that you are

For everything you do

For all that you’ve done

Just for showing me the truth

...i don't know if you're referring to the Muslim or the Jew...but either way, i must say, that's a rather immature response...

Interacting with other human beings in NYC is dangerous.

There are human beings in NYC? :o

ouch! that one was below the belt...lol, just kidding...i know its hard to believe sometimes...but yes, there are human beings in NYC!! :)

..actually, when i read your comment, i remembered a study i read about a couple of years ago.....they wanted to see which state had the "nicest" people[i guess]....they put a pregnant woman on crowded public buses and subways around america and they found that in NYC, more people offered their seats to her....

..so....yeah, we're a little colder than other americans...we find it weird when total strangers smile and say hello to us on the street...hahah...but we're nice people otherwise.. :)

In other cities, that pregnant woman would be the only passenger on the bus. Seats aplenty. That's really comparing apples and oranges.

Where'd you find one, though? All the cities I've lived in have empty buses running around. It would sometimes seem more cost effective to just hire those few passengers a cab. Seriously.

Maybe it was Seattle? Our trains and buses here are always packed.

And wait, did I see the word "hooligans" in this thread?! :lol:
