Haredi gets socked in the face for asking a woman to sit in the back

We should've known this brainless discrimination would lead to dreadful aggression sooner or later:
A secular man hit a haredi who asked a woman to move to the back of a bus traveling in Jerusalem on Thursday.

According to suspicions, the secular youth punched the man in the face and pulled his beard before fleeing the scene. A complaint has been filed with the police, and a search for the suspect is ongoing.

The 54 bus line, in which the incident took place, is not considered a 'haredi' line, though it passes through the predominantly haredi neighborhood of Givat Shaul. The woman boarded the bus in the neighborhood and sat at the front, but the haredi man reproached her and asked her to move to the back.

It was then that the secular youth allegedly decided to respond and assaulted the haredi, who was later treated by Magen David Adom paramedics for a nosebleed. [...]

Police deposed the woman, who said that she was asked to move to the back, but that the haredi man did not insist on it forcefully. The police are currently examining whether the woman's testimony can be used as a complaint against the haredi for women exclusion.
It may not have been justified, but that's what happens when one group stoops to violence - even those who aren't being particularly vicious about it take blowback.

And honestly, I think some of the people who were subject to Haredi discrimination like the woman in the bus there were being too soft when she said the bus driver was overreacting. That's basically succumbing to discriminatory, insulting beliefs. It shouldn't have to be that way.
