TV viewers were appalled by a scene on Channel 4's My Week As A Muslim, where a woman wearing a hijab was subjected to vile Islamophobic abuse as she walked past a pub garden.
Katie Freeman, who had campaigned to ban the burka, wore a headscarf to find out what it's like to be a Muslim in Britain.
And when she walked through Manchester in the hijab left viewers, people in a pub garden shouted at her "are you going to blow us up?"
Viewers were shocked by the scene.
