She asked her father that she wants to take her off her hijab, not to show off to anyone in the world, but witness the freedom of choice and individual right.
Lamyaa is a 17-year-old Muslim woman from Pennsylvania. While chatting with her friends in a group chat, everyone started discussing Donald Trump and Lamyaa also expressed her thoughts about him. Realizing that she is an Arab Muslim woman, a friend in the group, whom she didn’t know personally commented in the most pathetic way. The friend said, “Stop defending Islam Bitch shut up you couldn’t take that scarf off or your dad would beat your ass.”
Lamyaa thought of responding in the most corrective way and so she turned to her father and literary asked him if she can take her hijab off. Her father gave her the most brilliant and progressive answer. He said, “Sweetheart that’s not my decision to make. That’s no man’s decision to make. If it’s what you feel like you want to do, go ahead. I’ll support you no matter what.”
She then posted this whole incident on Twitter where many people stood by her.
Some even politely asked her to not take it off, to which she clarified her intentions.
However, others couldn’t digest it and so opposed her.
Lamyaa then thought of making herself clear to everyone.
