Arrest Warrant For Woman Who Threw Hot Coffee At Indian American

NEW YORK, NY (IANS) – Police have identified the woman who threw a cup of hot coffee at an Indian American man wearing a Palestinian scarf, and his 18-month-old son at a playground here last week.

Ashish Prashar, 40, was playing with his son at the Edmonds Playground in Brooklyn when the incident occurred on November 7.

Sharing a post, Prashar said, “The NYPD have identified the woman who attacked my 18-month-old and I last week. They have issued an arrest warrant — we’re waiting for her to be picked up… Thank you all for your support, love and blessings,” Prashar wrote.

Speaking to the New York Daily News last week, Prashar said that a woman, who identified herself as an American Jew, charged at them when she saw him wearing a keffiyeh — a headscarf traditionally worn by Palestinian men.

“She said, ‘Do you support Hamas? Do you know they are terrorists?’ Then she said my people are all dogs… ‘Do you know your people burn babies? … I hope someone burns your baby in an oven,’” Prashar told the New Jersey-based newspaper.

When he took out his phone to record the incident, the woman first threw her phone towards them, followed by the cup of hot coffee.

Speaking to CNN, Prashar said: “My whole goal was to protect my son… There was disbelief in the beginning when she called me a terrorist. But then it got worse, and it got more serious. I needed to protect my son and keep him at a safe distance.”

Neither Prashar nor his son were injured in the attack.

Police have not named the woman but told the media that she was a neighborhood local.

Prasher’s describes himself as a political strategist, activist and a writer. His last few posts are on the situation of children in Gaza caught in the Israel-Hamas war.

“How many more children? This is not a war, this is systemic genocide. I wish I could take away her tears and replace them with laughter,” a post read.

  • Does Mr. Prashar know the difference between Genocide and Self Defence ? Does he understand that Israel is reacting to the HAMAS attack in which over a hundred men, women and children were killed and thousands more injured by thousands of rockets targeting civilians and land, sea and air invasion by HAMAS on civilian concert goers and civilian residences, which also involved taking hundreds of concert goers and civilian residents as hostages to be used as human shields in Gaza ?

  • Saw another news where one Mistry and his female companion were charged with badmouthing person of Jewish heritage, taking down hostage victims’ posters and now apologizing after he got terminated from his employer. Anger, emotions need to be overcome and this can be done with kindness and empathy.
