In response to yet another man taking it upon himself to dictate what a woman should or should not do, Twitter user @londonraani started the hashtag #NotYourRespectableHijabi.
The tongue-in-cheek hashtag prompted dozens to sound off on how they felt on unwanted, unneeded judging. I feel that this has been a major problem in the Muslim community, especially with the advent of social media. I always expect a pointed comment from a self proclaimed sheikh under any Muslim woman’s post.
How do you feel about this hashtag? Do you applaud it and the message behind it? Or do you see it as ridiculous and little more than an excuse to post a selfie?
