Bella Hadid urges to ‘bring justice’ against discrimination of Muslim women wearing Hijab

Bella Hadid is using her social media platform to the fullest by raising awareness of discrimination against Muslim women who wear the hijab. The Palestinian-American supermodel in a series of posts to her Instagram highlighted in detail the struggles affecting Muslim women across the world today.

Hadid wrote: “Although different forms of the hijab and head coverings are starting to make an appearance in fashion, let’s still remember the daily struggle, abuse, and discrimination Muslim women face on a regular basis because of their faith and what they stand for. To each woman’s body, stand their own opinion on what they should do with it. That is no one’s decision except for theirs.”

In her second post, Bella Hadid supported Hoda Al-Jamaa, the New Zealand schoolgirl, 17, who had to be taken to hospital after three other students allegedly ripped her off hijab and beat her, earlier this month.

 

She said, “It makes me angry and sick to my stomach,” Hadid wrote. “We need to change this mindset of immediate judgement. Teach our friends, children, parents, families that wearing a hijab, being Muslim, or being anything other than white in general, does not equal being a threat or different than anyone else.”

In a third post shared by the model, 26, she called on leaders in France, India, Quebec and Belgium to end “discriminatory” laws that prohibit the wearing of the hijab and other religious coverings.

 

“I urge France, India, Quebec, Belgium, and any other countries in the world who are discriminatory against Muslim women, to rethink what decisions you have made or are trying to make in the future about a body that is not yours,” Hadid wrote.
