The World Hijab Day non-profit organization launched its 2019 campaign Wednesday, encouraging women and girls of all faiths, backgrounds, and ethnicities to “voice their choice” of wearing the Islamic misogynist head covering for women for 24 hours on February 1st in solidarity with 2nd class Muslim women across the world.
Breitbart (h/t MarvinW) “#FreeInHijab is the much-needed hashtag for our current global situation where women in hijab are labeled by media as oppressed and symbolically imprisoned,” Nazma Khan told Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency (AA).
“Through this hashtag, women are encouraged to voice their choice of wearing the hijab; thus dispelling common misconceptions,” Khan added. “Perhaps, this one-day experience will make them see the hijab in a different light,” Khan told AA. (Be sure to watch video below)
What Khan won’t tell you is that several countries, including some Muslim-majority ones, have banned Muslim women from wearing hijabs and the full-body covering veil known as burqas in public.
Khan explained that WHD’s 2019 motto is “Breaking Stereotypes, Shattering Boundaries,” noting that the campaign also includes “promoting World Hijab Day both online and offline globally.”
Khan has told several news outlets that the hardships she faced growing up in New York City due to her hijab motivated her to establish World Hijab Day. “I was constantly bullied in middle school and high school. Discrimination took on a different height after 9/11,” she said, referring to the Sept. 11, 2001 MUSLIM TERRORIST attacks in the United States.
She added, “Every day, I would face different challenges just walking on the street; I was chased, spat on, surrounded by goons, called a terrorist, Osama bin Laden, etc.” (Yet by wearing the hijab you knowingly invited the criticism so you could bitch about it to the media. Do you work for CAIR?)
In 2017, far left New York state and the House of Commons of the U.K. recognized February 1 as World Hijab Day. The Scottish Parliament and the Philippines have reportedly followed suit.
Khan dismissed accusations that the organization is spreading a political Islam ideology.
Each year since its inception in 2013, WHD has invited non-muslim women to wear a hijab — a headscarf worn by Muslim women by ‘choice’ (or so they say) — for one day on February 1.
(How about showing women what happens when a non-Muslim woman made the ‘choice’ NOT to wear a hijab on Hijab Day as happened to this American college student in Florida)
