@Hijarbie, the hijab(headbag)-clad Barbie doll, has gained Instagram fame, perhaps the result of Iran’s morality police cracking down and banning the sale of regular Barbie dolls in parts of the Muslim world.
Please note, ‘Hijarbie’ is NOT an official Mattel (creator of Barbie) product and I suspect there might be some copyright infringement issues here.
WND (h/t Madhu) Mattel’s iconic doll Barbie already comes in seven skin tones, 22 eye colors, a variety of hair styles and four different body shapes. Now, a 24-year-old Nigerian Muslim woman Haneefah Adam (photo right) has decided that Barbie should become Shariah-compliant like the sex slaves for ISIS.. “It’s about having a doll that looks like her, that represents her own cultural and religious background,” said Instagram fashionista Haneefah Adam.
While NOT Mattel-compliant, sharia-compliant Hijarbie is proving to be an Instagram success.
Adam told Style Mic she got the idea for Hijarbie a few months ago, after looking at the popular Barbie Style Instagram site. “It got me thinking about how I’d actually like to see a doll dressed up like I would have – covered up,” Adam said.
Adam, who is developing a modest-lifestyle brand called Hanie, makes all dresses and hijabs herself. She says it’s her intent to show girls that wearing a hijab makes them no less beautiful than Barbie.
“I want them to be inspired — this is about having an alternative and creating an awareness of having toys that adopt your religion and culture and in your own likeness, which at the end of the day, leads to an improvement in self-esteem,” Adam said.
Not all the response about Hijarbie has been positive, as the leftist media would have you believe. ‘Blue-eyed Hijarbie’ is generating a lot of harsh criticism on Twitter:
Mathew Johnson @UAI2000: Ridiculous. The hijab is a sign of oppression. What next, Ken has 4 Barbie wives? Just piss off!
AM @ArRuple: BARBIE would never wear a hijab/garbage bag. … but since she’s been corrupted, will Ken have on a suicide vest?
VOTE4Trump @needtoknowHim: This makes me sick. I can’t believe how we are catering to a bunch of murderers.
Alex Cowan @Desareon: Public Stoning, Acid Attack & Taharrush kit sold separately…
