Shocking moment woman hurls hot coffee at man wearing Palestinian scarf and his ... trends now

A video reveals the moment a woman hurls a hot cup of coffee at a man wearing a Palestinian scarf and his child at a Brooklyn playground - and brands them terrorists. 

The playground battle allegedly began when an unidentified woman confronted Ashish Prashar, 40, at a Brooklyn basketball court on Tuesday while he was with his son.    

Prashar told Dailymail.com that his 18-month-old son was playing basketball with the woman's child, when she approached and asked if Prashar supported Hamas. 

When Prashar told the woman he did not want to answer, she started yelling at him to get away from her and her child. 

'She said get out of here really aggressively, my son was behind me,' he said.  

This prompted Prashar to whip out his phone and film the woman as she approached him, throwing a cup of coffee and her phone in his direction.

Prashar claims the woman called him a terrorist before hurling the drink, but the video only captures the part where she says, 'Get away, get away, get away from me.'

When Prashar stopped recording, he said the woman continued to approach him, hitting him on the hand multiple times. 

'When someone asks you a proactive question, they are not looking for a real answer,' he said. 'I wanted to de-escalate.' 

'I feel sad my son has experienced has been a target a hate crime at 18 months,' he said. 'He knew something was wrong - he knew something was off. I held him there  and told him that he was loved.' 

Prashar is originally from London and has been previously incarcerated. He now works as a political Strategist and criminal Justice activist. He said he is currently working for an organization calling for a ceasefire in Israel. 

Prashar said politicians are to blame for creating tension in the city in the aftermath of the October 7 Hamas attack - and is urging state and federal leaders to tone down the 'good verses evil narrative.' 

The woman, dressed in sweatpants and a black and white baseball cap, has not yet been identified and police are offering a reward of up to $3,500 for any information leading to her arrest. No other witnesses have come forward as of yet. 

It is unclear what the relationship between Prashar and the woman was or if they knew each other prior to the incident. 

The incident occurred at about 12:30 pm at Edmonds Playground on DeKalb Ave in Fort Greene on Tuesday. 

Prashar told CNN: 'She threw her hot coffee in my face. I had just put my son down. It would have hit him in the face. I was mind blown.' 

The father was wearing a keffiyeh scarf, a popular middle-eastern headscarf. 

'My whole goal was to protect my son,' Prashar added. 'There was disbelief in the beginning when she called me a terrorist. But then it got worse, and it got more serious. I needed to protect my son and keep him at a safe distance.'
