Azadi is coming for Muslim women — No to WorldHijabDay
I have followed No Hijab Day since 2015, which was started by Iranian women in protest of mandatory hijab laws. Over the years, No Hijab Day has become more of a response to World Hijab Day, now happening on the same date as the latter, instead of the original October date. So this year, I’d really like to get back to the whole ethos behind No Hijab Day. It isn’t to mock or rally against hijab, but it’s about raising awareness that the freedom to choose does not exist in many countries and communities, often with fatal consequences, and it’s that freedom of choice that we fight for. Change is coming, we are witnessing it unfold in countries with the most brutal regimes such as Iran and Afghanistan. The bearded thugs are hanging on for dear life, slowly losing their grip on control over women. This year, No Hijab Day is more important than ever. Stand up, and let it be known, Azadi is coming.
