In case you missed it, France kicked off 2022 by cementing its status as a global epicenter of Islamophobia by passing yet another hijab ban. This time, France is banning Muslim women from wearing hijab in sports competitions.
We asked the Muslim Girl community to sound off on the latest French hijab ban. Needless to say, you all had some strong opinions. Check out what Muslim girls are saying below.
“That’s the most racist thing I have heard about.”
“I am more and more disgusted by the French government every day.”
“There’s no equality, liberty, or fraternity in France for Muslims.”
“It’s giving off the vibes that ‘Oh yeah, other people who don’t identify as Muslim can wear it.'”
“I’m a liberal but this is so wrong. It goes against the individual liberty of Muslim women.”
“Hijabs were already banned in sports/clubs, just not officially. 🤧 “
“This is insane! I’m from France…Paris, to be exact. When it’s for fashion, nobody says anything. This is crazy.”
“It’s annoying because first they’re like ‘OMG ban the hijab’ and now they’re using our religion for fashion.”
“France hates Muslims! It’s a strategy to drive us out of the country!”
“If it is accepted, I’ll be devastated because I’ll have to stop playing basketball in official competitions.”
