A 14-year-old Muslim girl was surrounded by a mob of pupils who chanted “ISIS” at her as she was being picked up from school , her mother claims.

The teenager was allegedly cornered by fellow students who asked what she was doing on the night of the Manchester Arena bombing before being verbally abused.

Her mum claims youngsters threatened to break her daughter’s nose and called the teen ‘ugly’.

She was also compared to an unpopular child who appeared in the Channel 4 documentary Educating Yorkshire, it was claimed.

The incident was captured on mobile phone camera by the girl’s mother outside the 1,300 pupil Priestnall School in Stockport, Greater Manchester.

Footage showed a large crowd of pupils congregating near the car whilst teachers stood nearby.

The mother Farrah Aftab has since pulled her unnamed daughter of school citing fears for her safety.

Mrs Aftab, 37, a mental health worker from Heaton Chapel, said: ” My daughter has been targetedsince year seven and has been made to feel that she has no friends and that no one likes her.

“The children have said to her that she is like the young Muslim girl in educating Yorkshire, who struggled to make friends.

She said on Thursday she and her husband had gone to pick their daughter up from school.

Mrs Aftab said they come from a mixed race background and as a family and were raised to know they were all equal.

She added: “What ISIS do has nothing to do with us being Muslims.

She claims that as they sat in the car, girls and boys surrounded them, peeping in back windows where their daughter was sat.

The mum added: “She and I were saying go away but the girls were hurling abuse at her and shouting ISIS, saying they would break her nose, calling her ugly, saying you watch what happens now.
