In May 2014 a mini revolution started by journalist Masih Alinejad on social media that is causing some friction in Iran. Here is a small snippet from Huggington Post:
Through her Facebook community, My Stealthy Freedom, Alinejad has been encouraging Iranian women to post photos of themselves without the mandatory hijab, or veil, to protest the restrictive policies of the Islamic government. Since she started the page in May 2014, it has garnered over 897,000 likes.
The hijab is a piece clothing forced upon millions of women each year in Islamic countries by law that is oppressive in nature. Even in free countries, the husband will force it upon their wives. Women each year face court sanctions, being physically assaulted or worse, killed for not wearing it. Unfortunately, we have a few generations now of people that have been brain washed by the Diversity Industrial Complex in teaching that the hijab represents multiculturalism…..it doesn’t.
I’m going to present a few pieces of history to back up my point. The first piece is a two minute video from 1956. Egyptian President Gamal Adbel Nasser mocking the Muslim Brotherhood on wanting him to implement law on women to wear the hijab:
The next piece of history comes from Iran just days after the revolution in March 1979. New Iranian leadership ordered women must wear a hijab out in public among other opressive laws. An estimated 100,000 women protested the new law(pic down below). Click link here to learn more about this photo exhibit.
It is examples like this of history that needs to be shown more so people don’t lose sight in what really happened. The sad part is if you Google the word “Hijab” and click on the “images” tab, they make the hijab look trendy. The hijab is a trend not needed here in America or even across the world for what it represents.
I’m not calling for a law banning the hijab here in the U.S. The next President needs to start a verbal juedo trend in denouncing the hijab in honor of the millions of women who have been forced into this theological submissive piece of clothing.
