A 7-year-old Pakistani-origin boy was allegedly beaten up by five classmates on a school bus in the US for being a Muslim, an incident that has forced his family to move back to Pakistan fearing “Donald Trump’s America”. The parents of Abdul Usmani have charged that he was bullied and beaten by five students on the bus while returning home from Weather stone Elementary School in Cary, North Carolina, as they made references to Muslims and the boy’s Pakistani heritage.

Usmani told Buzz Feed News that he his wife along with their three sons have left the US for Pakistan after this latest incident in a long history of discrimination towards his children and family.

“These are six and seven year old kids calling him names, with one kid punching him in the face, while two other kids attacked him, kicked him, and held his arms back,” Usmani said.
