[Ed. – Technically, this year’s was the third World Hijab Day.]
In case you missed it, February 1st was the first ever “World Hijab Day,” designed to promote the requirement for women to wear a veil or headscarf called “Hijab.” The Hijab must cover a woman’s head and chest, beginning at the age of puberty, and must be worn in the presence of men outside of the woman’s immediate family.
The World Hijab day campaign claims the holiday was created “in recognition of millions of Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab and live a life of modesty.”
The movement that promotes a requirement resulting in “acid attacks,” beatings, imprisonment, and death, is being promoted with “smiles and happiness”…
In Iran, for example, women are publicly monitored according to strict hijab dress code. Basij militia police regularly patrol and legally target women in public, harassing, fining, beating, and arresting them—because they do not like how they are dressed.
