Ninja is what they call it and I just smile because there is no point in arguing about it. They think people doing hijab are backward but then it’s much better than being called suicide bombers, looters etc. They also think that one should shut themselves down completely if they are doing hijab, why? Because that is the reason you do hijab, to shun society?? No?
We do this because Allah said so and the fact that we feel safe. Safe around people who constantly scrutinize you, trying to figure out what size are you. What they need to know is that we have every right to take steps, leap and jump. We have every right to live and enjoy, learn and lead. This piece of cloth doesn’t stop us from anything. It adds substance and gives us our identity which we Muslims seem to have forgotten.
