The mainstream media and Islamic supremacist groups are constantly preoccupied with the supposed plight of women who wear hijab in the U.S., who, they claim, are routinely harassed and victimized. The women who are really harassed and victimized, however, are those who dare not to wear hijab in countries such as Iran where it is enforced. Brava, Heena Sidhu. In doing this, she has honored Aqsa Parvez, whose Muslim father choked her to death with her hijab after she refused to wear it; and Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab; and the 40 women who were murdered in Iraq in 2007 for not wearing the hijab; and Alya Al-Safar, whose Muslim cousin threatened to kill her and harm her family because she stopped wearing the hijab in Britain; and Amira Osman Hamid, who faces whipping in Sudan for refusing to wear the hijab; and the Egyptian girl, also named Amira, who committed suicide after being brutalized for her family for refusing to wear the hijab; and 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; and the women in Chechnya whom police shot with paintballs because they weren’t wearing hijab; and the women also in Chechnya who were threatened by men with automatic rifles for not wearing hijab; and the elementary school teachers in Tunisia who were threatened with death for not wearing hijab; and the Syrian schoolgirls who were forbidden to go to school unless they wore hijab; and the women in Gaza whom Hamas has forced to wear hijab; and the women in Iran who protested against the regime by daring to take off their legally-required hijab; and the women in London whom Muslim thugs threatened to murder if they didn’t wear hijab; and the anonymous young Muslim woman who doffed her hijab outside her home and started living a double life in fear of her parents, and all the other women and girls whose names we will never know, who have been killed or threatened, or who live in fear for daring not to wear the hijab.
“Indian Shooter Heena Sidhu Refuses To Wear A Hijab, Withdraws From Airgun Competition In Iran,” by Joshua Arpit Nath, India Times, October 29, 2016:
India’s ace shooter Heena Sidhu has made a bold statement by refusing to wear the hijab for competing in an Airgun competititon in Iran. The tournament, Asian Airgun Shooting Championship, is slated to be held in December in Tehran.
Heena, who is the defending champion, has withdrawn from the meet because of Iran’s insistence on female contestants adhering to the dress code according to which it is mandatory for female participants to wear the ‘hijab’.
“Forcing tourists or foreign guests to wear ‘hijab’ is against the spirit of the game. Since I don’t like it, I have withdrawn my name,” Heena told Times of India. “You follow your religion and let me follow mine. I’ll not participate in this competition if you are going to force me to comply with your religious beliefs,” she said.
The organisers have made it clear on their official website that the female contestants will have to wear clothes in compliance with the rules of the Islamic Republic of Iran…./blockquote>
