(CNN) — Last year at Christmastime, Rehan Seyam, a Muslim living in New Jersey, went to pick up some things at a local Wal-Mart. Seeing her distinctive traditional Muslim head covering called a “hijab,” a man in the store, addressing her directly, sang “The 12 Days of Christmas” using insulting lyrics about terrorism and Osama bin Laden.
She was stunned.
“Do I look like a terrorist to you?” Seyam said she asked the man.
According to Seyam, the man replied, “What else does a terrorist look like?”
