Two Muslim women are accosted and pushed on a Toronto subway. Another is assaulted and robbed after dropping off her kids off at school.

Incidents of anti-Muslim hate crimes are on the rise, according to the Canadian Arab Federation. Since the Paris attacks in November, there’s been a sharp spike — enough that the National Council of Canadian Muslims created an online map to track such incidents.

The incidents grab the attention of media, but not always of bystanders who witness an attack.
