This Is What the Muslim Girl Army Says About the French Hijab Ban

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.”

@leatyfw said:

“I am more and more disgusted by the French government every day.”

@nomadicarrow said:

“There’s no equality, liberty, or fraternity in France for Muslims.”

@amaniqureshi17 said:

“It’s giving off the vibes that ‘Oh yeah, other people who don’t identify as Muslim can wear it.'”

@imsohot800 said:

“I’m a liberal but this is so wrong. It goes against the individual liberty of Muslim women.”

@joundrys_ said:

“Hijabs were already banned in sports/clubs, just not officially. 🤧 “

@khadbh_20 says:

“This is insane! I’m from France…Paris, to be exact. When it’s for fashion, nobody says anything. This is crazy.”

@aiza.jamill said:

“It’s annoying because first they’re like ‘OMG ban the hijab’ and now they’re using our religion for fashion.”

@jihadibnou said:

“France hates Muslims! It’s a strategy to drive us out of the country!”

@s.fkdr said:

“If it is accepted, I’ll be devastated because I’ll have to stop playing basketball in official competitions.”
