A woman told a Muslim woman shopping in a Brooklyn TJ Maxx to “Go back to your country!” and tried to slap a cell phone out of her husband’s hands, the husband says.

Several politicians representing southern Brooklyn want police to probe the incident as a hate crime.

Mido Mourad, 41, a journalist from Cairo living in New York, posted video on Facebook of the woman cursing him out as she left the Bay Ridge store Saturday afternoon.
