Via Daily Mail UK:
Videos showing women burning the hijab are being posted on social media in solidarity with a protest movement against enforced headscarf in Iran.
Posted online with the hashtag #NoHijabDay, a response to last week’s World Hijab Day event, the videos show women removing their headscarves and setting them on fire in front of the camera.
It comes as the Iranian government released a report showing that half of the population do not believe that the state should dictate what women wear, despite dozens of arrests this month.
You go, ladies! At this rate, Islam might even finally get dragged into the 19th century…
As promised, I did it on my birthday, it feels so liberating to burn the #hijab. And I am doing that in solidarity to #Iranian women who are protesting against the madatory hijab and for all the forced girls. #nohijabday we are not candies or diamonds to be covered. We’re humans. pic.twitter.com/S95oMAsxYG
