Opposing “World Hijab Day” isn’t as simple as telling Muslim women to “take it off”

Rebel Staff

On Friday’s episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Yasmine Mohammed, author of Confessions of an Ex-Muslim, joined me to talk about what World Hijab Day is really about, and why opposing the protest that tells women to put on a hijab, isn’t as simple as telling women to instead, take it off.

Statistics bear out the fact that a majority of Muslim women who wear the veil feel a compulsion to do so either due to physical threats, or fear of being shunned by the community.

Some argue that a law banning burqas could empower many of these women against the bullies who would compel them to wear a covering.

Watch as Yasmine explains why sometimes, even this isn’t enough to free women from this oppressive clothing.
