Non-Muslims Don Hijab to Support Muslim Sisters

LONDON – Many non-Muslim women took to the internet on Wednesday, February 1, to post their photos and videos while donning the Islamic hijab on World Hijab Day.

The event is meant to show solidarity with Muslim women who usually face threats as a result of their decision to put on the Islamic attire.

On February 1, millions Muslim and non-Muslim women wearing a traditional Islamic hijab mark the fifth anniversary of World Hijab Day.

The World Hijab Day, held for the fifth consecutive year, is the brain child of a New York resident, Nazma Khan, who came up with the idea as a means to foster religious tolerance and understanding.
