The h
ijab is the progressives’ new diversity symbol which they blindly embrace in their hate-America agenda to destroy the Judeo-Christian heritage of our country.

Elon University newspaper published an article titled World Hijab Day in the Elon community.  The article reports in part:

World Hijab Day is a day of celebrating for Muslim women by walking in their shoes for a day. Elon University is celebrating Hijab Day April 25. Students are invited to cover their heads with either a scarf or cap for the day.  

Though the practice of wearing a hijab is limited to women, Elon has provided opportunities for every student to learn about the Islamic faith, and this year men are being invited to participate.

Jihadwatch.org reports the following, in part, regarding World Hijab Day:

Today Leftist women all over Europe and North America can signal their virtue. But where is their concern for Aqsa Parvez, whose Muslim father choked her to death with her hijab after she refused to wear it? Or Aqsa and Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab? Or the 40 women who were murdered in Iraq in 2007 for not wearing the hijab; or Alya Al-Safar, whose Muslim cousin threatened to kill her and harm her family because she stopped wearing the hijab in Britain; or Amira Osman Hamid, who faced whipping in Sudan for refusing to wear the hijab; or the Egyptian girl, also named Amira, who committed suicide after being brutalized for her family for refusing to wear the hijab; or the Muslim and non-Muslim teachers at the Islamic College of South Australia who were told that they had to wear the hijab or be fired; or the women in Chechnya whom police shot with paintballs because they weren’t wearing hijab; or the women also in Chechnya who were threatened by men with automatic rifles for not wearing hijab; or the elementary school teachers in Tunisia who were threatened with death for not wearing hijab; or the Syrian schoolgirls who were forbidden to go to school unless they wore hijab; or the women in Gaza whom Hamas has forced to wear hijab; or the women in Iran who protested against the regime by daring to take off their legally-required hijab; or the women in London whom Muslim thugs threatened to murder if they didn’t wear hijab; or the anonymous young Muslim woman who doffed her hijab outside her home and started living a double life in fear of her parents; or the fifteen girls in Saudi Arabia who were killed when the religious police wouldn’t let them leave their burning school building because they had taken off their hijabs in their all-female environment; or all the other women and girls who have been killed or threatened, or who live in fear for daring not to wear the hijab? Who is standing in solidarity with them? Those who taunt or brutalize hijab-wearing women are louts and creeps, and should be prosecuted if they commit any acts of violence.

Perhaps if Elon University officials had invested a little time to research this issue it would not have pushed students to embrace this oppressive symbol.

The hijab exemplifies Islamist oppression towards women that is commanded by Sharia law and fatwas.  It is a symbol of the cruel creed that it represents.   The hijab was invented in the 1970s over 1300 years after the Quran was written.  The hijab is not derived from the Quran but is legislated by Islamist dictates and fatwas that oppress and dominate woman.   Strict Islamic law, Sharia and fatwa enforcement requiring women to wear the hijab started only within the last 50 years.  

Muslim women are currently protesting the Islamist dictates that require them to wear the hijab in Iran and Saudi Arabia.  Many women in Iran have received lashes and prison time in recent months for refusing to wear the hijab.

Most Muslim women in America do not wear a hijab.  Pew Research found that only forty three percent (43%) of American Muslim women wear hijabs according to an article published by NPR on April 21, 2011.  The NPR article states in part “The split between women who've covered and women who've never done so has existed for decades. But now a generation of women is taking off the headscarf, or hijab.”  Therefore, after seven years of “a generation of women taking off the hijab” the number of Muslim women now wearing the hijab in America is likely much less than forty three percent.

The numerous dictates of Sharia law that harshly oppress women, symbolized by the forced wearing of the hijab, are antithetical to the rights afforded all Americans by the United States Constitution.  For more information regarding hijab history and application click here.

Elon University’s blind grandstanding of the most visible symbol of Islamist oppressive doctrine is irresponsible.
