As if it were a symbol of freedom! The massacre in New Zealand was terrible, but to promote the oppression of women is not a proper response. Islamic supremacists and their willing gophers on the left — middle-class Western feminists — work furiously to promote the hijab for “World Hijab Day,” one of the most pathetic and destructive displays of virtue signalling. Non-Muslim women are urged to wear the garment of oppression, subjugation and misogyny. While women are fighting and dying for their most basic rights not to wear the hijab, left-wing feminist goons work to impose the misogyny of the sharia.
The West should be paying tribute to the women who are forced to wear the hijab, and beaten and/or arrested if they don’t. The promotion of the hijab is a stunning indictment of the hypocrisy of the evil left, as much as their choice of the sharia-promoting, forced marriage advocate Linda Sarsour for their leader. The real “feminists” are these women who are risking imprisonment and torture for taking off their hijabs. They are fighting for a fraction, a sliver of the freedoms their Western “sisters” enjoy.
“Standing with Muslim women: Wearing a headscarf an offering of support,” by Cleo Fraser, Newshub, March 21, 2019:
All women are being encouraged to wear head scarves tomorrow to show their support for the Muslim community.
Some are unsure whether it’s culturally appropriate and what colours to wear.
Newshub spoke to Amina Patel, a Muslim businesswoman and mother.
- Top Auckland girls’ school will make exception for students to wear hijab on Friday
- Scarves in Solidarity urges Kiwis to wear scarves on Friday
She wears a hijab, the term Muslims use for a scarf covering a woman’s hair and neck.
“We feel quite safe wearing it. It’s like if you don’t put your skirt or pants on and go to work. It’s part of our clothing and I must say it’s everybody’s personal choice.”
Amina Patel says it’s totally fine for non-Muslims to wear the hijab.
Morrinsville woman Nurul Shamsul last year became the first Miss Universe New Zealand contestant to wear one.
She agrees that non-Muslims wearing scarves tomorrow is a lovely symbol.
“It’s not culturally inappropriate in any means, standing together in solidarity is really important and it’s a meaningful way to come together as one.”…
