Stacey Eden was travelling on a Sydney train when she noticed a Muslim woman was being verbally attacked by another commuter. Unable to contain her outrage she decided to intervene. She filmed the whole encounter on her mobile phone and later posted it onto her Facebook page. 

It has now been viewed more than 80,000 times and Stacey has been praised as a ‘Legend’ by people from all around the world, including the family she defended. 

Hafeez Ahmed Bhatti commented “Stacey thanks again for your support for us on that day… I generally believe that you and many other Australians do respect all religions.” 

Ms Eden replied “Thank you so much for contacting me. I wish I said more to you and your wife yesterday, but as I said when you got off the train, I’m very sorry you had to experience this.
