Stacey was on a Sydney train travelling from Town Hall to the airport when she saw a Muslim woman being abused and she was having none of it.

So i sat there for a good 10 minutes before i started recording this, while i listened to this woman bad mouth muslims and call the lady sitting opposite me an ISIS supporter because she wore a scarf, then she told me to go join ISIS because i was sticking up for her. People like this make me sick. People who are so ignorant and disrespectful to other people who were clearly sitting there minding their own business. She was saying some pretty horrible and hurtful things before i spoke up then as soon as i started defending them she stopped. People need to stop judging and putting others down over religion! EVERY RELIGION HAS GOOD AND BAD but if you take it back to the foundations, every religion is also built on LOVE. To LOVE one another.The purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticise others.

The video starts with an older woman asking, "Why do you wear it [the headscarf] for a man that marries a 6-year-old girl?"

Eden then interjects, "She wears it for herself, OK? She wears it because she wants to be modest with her body, not because of people like you who are going to sit there and disrespect her."

The woman responds, "Your kids behead people."

To which Stacey says, "That's not her doing it. That's a minority of people, not a majority of people."

The woman mentions "148 Christians murdered in Kenya."

Stacey responds, "What's that got to do with this lady?"

Stacey uploaded the video to Facebook yesterday, and it's already been viewed more than 68,000 times at the time of writing.
