A MUM has said her three-year-old daughter was racially abused at tube station but staff did nothing to help.
Rashina Begum said a “white male” told both of them to “go back to Syria” and “f**k off back to your country” while his female friend laughed.
In a Facebook post she said her daughter “was absolutely shook up by the ordeal” adding that this “grown up adult can not get away with this in this day and age”.
But to make matters worse, she claimed after she reported the early afternoon incident to staff at Mile End station, east London, the man alleged to have abused her was allowed get away.
Rashina claimed she was taken to the station office and on CCTV monitor was able to see that “TFL staff shook his hand and let him back on to the train”.
She protested to them about why British Transport Police hadn’t been called or his name and details taken”.
When she complained about the staff member who she alleges shook the perpetrator’s hand, she was ignored and was not given his name to make a complaint.

Rashina later tweeted: “I want the footage of the altercation to help police identify the racist who abused me and my innocent child.
“I would also want an investigation into staff behaviour towards victims.”
