A hate-spewing bigot hurled anti-Muslim slurs and spat on a teenage girl riding a Brooklyn bus and then chucked a cup of soda at her, cops said Sunday.

The disheveled assailant shouted “Go back to your country!” and “What is that rag on your head?” at the 18-year-old victim, who was wearing a gray hijab, on a B6 bus about 5:40 p.m. Friday, police sources said.

Moments later, the loon spit at and hurled a cup of soda at her. She hopped off the bus at Bay Ridge Parkway and Bay Parkway in Bensonhurst.

Cope released a photo of the suspect and asked the public’s help tracking her down. She is described as about 5-foot-5 and 200 pounds. She had on glasses and was wearing a gray T-shirt, gray sweatpants and black sneakers along with a colorful head scarf.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
