WHEN Stacey Eden saw a Muslim woman being subjected to vicious verbal attack as they travelled on one of Sydney's trains, she did the only thing she could do – she stepped in.

Unable to contain her anger at the middle-aged woman who had launched this vile assault the 23-year-old launched her own assault by defending the Muslim woman while also filming the encounter on her mobile phone.

She then uploaded the incident on social media on Wednesday evening.

It has since attracted almost 80,000 views and praise from hundreds of people around the world, including the young family she defended.

In one post on Ms Eden's Facebook page a man named Hafeez Ahmed Bhatti wrote; " Stacey thanks again for your support for us on that day...I generally believe that you and many other Australians do respect all religions."

To which Ms Eden replied: "Hafeez Ahmed Bhatti 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.

"Please don't let one woman's ignorance change your opinions on Australia or the people who live here.

"I really hope your wife is OK, it must have been very confrontational and upsetting for you and her both.

"I wish nothing but the best for you both and your child.

"Take care and God bless."

Ms Eden said she began recording the incident, which took place on a CityRail train travelling from Town Hall to the airport around 1.30pm on Wednesday, ten minutes after the woman began her tirade.

"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," Ms Eden from Mascot wrote on Facebook.

"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!"

In the 48-second video, you can hear the middle-aged woman attacking the Muslim woman for wearing a hijab.

She then begins listing the recent attacks by Islamic State and made reference to the Martin Place siege, and the mass murder of Christians in Kenya in an attempt to justify her verbal assault of the defenceless woman.

But Ms Eden steps in telling her that the killings have nothing to do with her or her husband.

"'That is not her doing it," she says in the video. "That is a minority of people. Not a majority of people OK?

"It doesn't matter what they're doing. Have some respect, have some respect.

"It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. What's that got to do with this poor lady? What's that got to do with her?'

Ms Eden also defended the Muslim woman's dress saying 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," Ms Eden says in the video.

Since she posted the video, Ms Eden has been hailed a "great example of being an awesome Australian", a "legend" and an "amazing human being".

Ms Eden said she has been overwhelmed by the response and thanked all those who responded positively to her video on Facebook.
