A picture of Saffiyah went viral after she reportedly stepped in when Ian Crossland and over 20 EDL supporters confronted a woman wearing a hijab

The Brummie woman who went viral after standing up to the EDL has found herself an unusual ally – in the shape of the former leader of the right-wing group.

Tommy Robinson, who previously headed up the EDL, has stuck up for Brummie Saffiyah Khan who smiled at protesters in Birmingham city centre on Saturday.

A picture of Saffiyah went viral after she reportedly stepped in when Ian Crossland and over 20 EDL supporters confronted a woman wearing a hijab, who had been shouting at them.

It has led to her becoming a hate figure of right wingers on social media sites Twitter and Facebook

 

But Robinson, who now heads up another group, Pegida UK, took the unusual step of sticking up for her.

He Tweeted: “Ok, just had In confirmed by a friend who was at edl demo, this lady was defending a woman in a navy hijab as she said to the papers.

“& I don’t care how many people don’t like me saying that , the truth is the truth. & the picture is embarrassing.”

Saffiyah, who was observing the EDL protest in Birmingham yesterday, claimed police “did nothing” to protect the woman.

But when she stepped in, the group turned on her and she was caught in a stand-off with Crossland which was caught on camera.

Since then, the image has gone viral, with the likes of Piers Morgan sharing it.

The picture was taken by Press Association photographer Joe Giddens.
