The World Hijab Day is the response of Muslim women on the "burqa" ban[wp] in France and the secular religion of state feminism. The Muslimas invite on World Hijab Day (February 1 of each year) non-Muslim women to wear the hijab[wp] (Islamic head covering) for one day.[1]

The initiator Nazma Khan (r.)
Headscarf are available in many religions: Christian Catholic, Hindu woman, Muslim woman, Orthodox woman, Sabian woman and Jewish woman
Slogan: «Hijab for a Day»

The initiative was launched by Nazma Khan - who had come with 11 years from Bangladesh to New York - to set a sign for freedom of their own decision. Organized through social networks, so the interest of Muslims and non-Muslims was awakened in some 50 countries around the world.[2]


Quote: «I figured the only way to end discrimination if we ask our fellow sisters to experience hijab themselves.» - Nazma Khan, World Hijab Day founder[3]
Quote: «I was made to feel like a criminal, as if I was responsible for 9/11 and owed an apology to everyone.» - Nazma Khan[4]
Quote: «Our goal is to foster global religious tolerance and understanding through hijab awareness. Many women get discriminated (against) simply because they choose to wear the hijab.» - Nazma Khan[5]
Before judging, cover yourself for a day.
Carol Lee (Mrs. Universe[wp] 2013)[6]
"We invite both the non-Hijabi Muslim & non-Muslim sisters across the globe to wear and experience the Hijab for one day."
