Playing the part of the outraged hijabi by-passer. 

Asoomi Jay’s Statement:

The EU has violated human rights and banned the hijab in the workplace, claiming this is not an act of discrimination. I decided to play devil’s advocate and see what the British have to say.London has spoken up and decided it’s far more than just discrimination, it’s an act of hate. Fear mongering by media, politicians and governments creates barriers, division and increases hate crimes among citizens, whether it be “lone-wolf attacks by Muslims” retaliating, or by lone-wolf non-Muslims who get brainwashed, misinformed and become violent among innocent Muslim citizens. The purpose of this project is to speak up against injustice and show the world that we are all ONE. If we learnt to love one another, and learnt to coexist, we will not be divided. And as a Muslim who grew up wearing the hijab, and had been physically attacked for practicing the hijab, I never had that support or empowerment and wish to be that for girls who are now suffering this injustice. I want to show them they are not alone and that they have my utmost respect and encouragement to be themselves in a world that tells them they cant be.
