What is the message?
“‘Lincolnshire non-Muslim girls asked to wear hijab for a day’ — or how about the Muslim girls try NOT wearing a hijab for a day and see how nice life is in a free society where women are equal with men and don’t need to cover themselves to get respect?”

Islamic supremacists and their willing gophers on the left — middle-class Western feminists — work furiously to promote the hijab in one of their most pathetic and destructive displays of virtue signalling. Non-Muslim girls are shamed into wearing are 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.
No cares if you wear the hijab. No one cares if you wear purple hair, for that matter. The real world recognition day should be in tribute to the women who are forced to wear the hijab, and beaten and/or arrested if they don’t. World Hijab Day 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 those women in Iran 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.
#NoHijabDay Campaign Fights Women’s Subjugation, Indoctrination
"These are tools of oppression. We are not given a choice… How can it be a choice when you are told you will burn in Eternal Hellfire if you don't wear it".

UK: English schoolgirls asked to wear Islamic headscarf for ‘Hijab Day’
In Lincolnshire, England, non-Muslim schoolgirls have been asked to show up to school wearing an Islamic headscarf for ‘Hijab Day’ in November.
The ‘Hijab Day’ event is being organized by Ghada Mohamed of the Lincoln Muslim Sisters Forum. Mohamed hopes that ‘Hijab Day’ will be adopted by all British high schools so that non-Muslim girls can increase their ‘knowledge’ of different religious garments, and so that alleged incidents of abuse against hijab-wearing girls can be limited.
One Muslim girl living in Lincolnshire who supports Mohamed’s initiative told reporters at the BCC that “the hijab was part of her identity, but wearing it sometimes made her feel like she was not part of the community”.
The option of choosing not to wear the hijab in order to feel like “part of the community” was not an idea that the BBC raised during its report. Some prominent commentators have taken to social media to raise the idea, however.
TalkRadio host Julia Hartley-Brewer, introduced the novel idea into the conversation when she tweeted, “‘Lincolnshire non-Muslim girls asked to wear hijab for a day’ — or how about the Muslim girls try NOT wearing a hijab for a day and see how nice life is in a free society where women are equal with men and don’t need to cover themselves to get respect?”
This isn’t the first time that institutions have pushed Islamic headscarves onto the British population. In 2018, the hijab was promoted by the British government, with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office putting on an event for the so-called ‘World Hijab Day’ – which exists apart from Mohamed’s planned hijab-wearing day – for their employees. At the event, free headscarves were given to all female staff members and they were invited to wear them.
An email sent to staff members which promoted the event read, “Would you like to try on a Hijab or learn why Muslim women wear the headscarf? Come along to our walk-in event. Free scarfs [sic]for all those that choose to wear it for the day or part of the day.”
“Muslim women, along with followers of many other religions, choose to wear the Hijab. Many find liberation, respect, and security through wearing it. #StrongInHijab”
Truth is: women in Islamic countries are often faced with heavy penalties for not wearing the headscarf. In Iran, three women were each sentenced to 16 years in prison for “disrespecting compulsory hijab”.
