The National published an article titledMichael Kors creates floral hijab as part of Middle East exclusives.  The article reports in part:

First there was Dolce & Gabbana, then there was Nike, and now we can add Michael Kors to the ever-growing list of brands catering for Muslim shoppers.

The luxury label, helmed by American designer Michael Kors, has released its first hijab as part of a spring / summer 2019 capsule collection, which will be sold in stores across the Middle East from this month.

The headscarf is crafted in a lightweight black fabric, and printed with delicate white and olive blooms, and is one of three regionally exclusive designs by Kors.

The label has used the same bucolic pattern on a long-sleeved, woven kaftan, which can be paired with the white Mindy lace-up sneakers, which are finished with floral motifs.

The expansion into modestwear could be an astute move by the American brand, with Muslim shoppers projected to have spent an estimated $484 billion (nearly Dh2 trillion) on clothing and accessories by 2019, according to a 2015 report from Thomson Reuters.

Unfortunately, marketing a specialized artsy hijab makes it more difficult for Muslim women to doff the Sharia mandated headgear altogether and stand against other harsh tenets of Sharia law that repress women.

The hijab has replaced the pink triangle as the progressive left's top symbol of diversity.  However, tens of millions of Americans including thousands of Muslim women view the hijab as a symbol of Islamist, misogynistic repression.   Nearly sixty percent of Muslims in America do not wear the hijab according to Pew Research published by NPR on April 21, 2011.  

Some scholars of Islam teach that the Quran does not mandate the hijab.  The hijab was invented and mandated by Mussah Sadr, an Iranian mullah, in the 1970s, 1300 years after the Quran was written. Sadr issued a Sharia edict that required women to wear the hijab to allegedly prevent their rape.  Women In The World media published an article on September 15, 2015 titled “The day 100,000 Iranian women protested the head scarf.”  The article displayed a seldom-seen collection of photographs, shot in Tehran in 1979, of thousands of women who are not wearing hijabs or other oppressive attire prior to Sadr enforcing Iran’s new Islamist hijab law.  

British Muslim Qanta Ahmed wrote on March 18, 2017 in The Spectator UK:  “As a Muslim, I strongly support the right to ban the veil.  At last, the European Court of Justice has made a stand for European values.  Rigid interpretations of the veil are a recent invention. They’re derived not from the Quran or early Islamic tradition but from a misogyny which claims a false basis in the divine.”  

The same Sharia law that dictates women must wear the hijab also advocates harsh discipline (abuse) of wives, genital mutilation of girls and honor killing of allegedly dishonorable females.  The hijab exemplifies Islamist oppression towards women that is commanded by Sharia law and fatwas.  It epitomizes the cruel creed that it represents.

Michael Kors' marketing a specialized artsy hijab just makes it more difficult for Muslim women to embrace the fullness of liberty by doffing the oppressive hijab as most other Muslim women have done in America as well as take a stand against the harsh Sharia tenets that oppress them.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to express concern to Michael Kors officials for marketing the oppressive Sharia mandated hijab.
