World Hijab Day

World Hijab Day was founded by Nazma Khan on 1st February 2013. Nazma experienced discrimination after moving to New York from Bangladesh at the age of 11. She was harassed for observing her modest Islamic head dress. The idea of World Hijab Day came about from this. Women across the globe from all faiths or none, are invited to foster the hijab for the day to enable religious tolerance and understanding.
