Today is as stated above, the World Hijab Day. I am supporting the event on facebook and I think it would be good to also show my support here. If you'd like to support this event, you are most welcome.
Here's the excerpt from the event page in facebook.
to every woman and every man in the world ,
on July first 2009 Marwa Al-Sherbeini (a muslim pharmacist living in germany wearing the head scarf) was killed during a hearing at a court of law in Dresden, Germany. She was stabbed 18 times by a man against whom she had testified in a criminal case for verbal abuse about wearing an Islamic headscarf.Other noteworthy characteristics of this murder were that the perpetrator was motivated by hostility and prejudice against a race and religion; the criminal offence was committed in front of a child, while also attacking another person who tried to intervene.
we want to honor all Muslim women who are wearing the headscarf (the Hijab) on this day , to announce to all the world that what is happening to the Muslim women in the west is not fair , and doesn't match with the freedom foundations that the western societies was built on .
we want equal treatment to Muslim women who are wearing Hijab , just like other women who don't .
we want a fair punishment to the criminal who murdered Marwa Al-Sherbini .
we want an official protection to all Muslim women in entire Europe , Canada , and the united states !
we need a new legislations protecting Muslim women (and Islam in General) from the continuous unjustified hate speech against Islam and Muslims which arises Islamophobia everywhere .
Let's show our solidarity.
