Muslim Teen’s Hijab Tweet Goes Viral


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

A Muslim teen dismantled a preferred stereotype concerning women who use the hijab, she did so with a straightforward text to her daddy. Cenk Uygur, Francis Maxwell, and Hannah Cranston, the hosts of The Young Turks, simplify. Tell us exactly what you believe in the remark section below.

Read more right here:

" A young Muslim teenager's message with her papa has actually gone viral online. According to BuzzFeed, 17-year-old Lamyaa from Pennsylvania located herself in an altercation concerning Donald Trump in a team chat. According to Lamyaa, her status as a Muslim lady evoked a negative reaction from a fellow chat member, who declared that" [her] papa would certainly defeat" her if she removed her headscarf. In order to confirm the person wrong, the Muslim teen texted her papa regarding her hijab, which brought about all type of actions online. From assistance to criticism, Lamyaa's tweet stimulated a dispute about the hijab.

Lamyaa shared a screenshot of the individual who apparently informed her to take her hijab off. She shared it together with a screenshot of her talking with her daddy who resides in Saudi Arabia. She told her papa that she intended to tell him something and also he responded in Arabic, "My love, are you OK?" Lamyaa told her dad that she was considering taking her hijab off– periodically called "dejab" by some Muslims– and also her daddy continued to tell her that it was her prerogative to do so, writing, "Sweetie that's not my decision to make. That's no male's decision to make." *.

    But she had to ask daddy first

      And what, do you suppose, the daddy would have answered had she been texting him from (and while living in) Saudi Arabia?

    • Posted by kickme 69, at Reply

      Well you must be some sort of low IQ trumpster as i think thats pretty obvious and it has nothing to do with her dad being religious. I mena it doesnt take much stepping into hes shoes to know the answer? In fact you only have to think what you would say in that case… although if you were there the weak minded individual you are you yourself would probs be some sort of religious fanatic and in that case the answer would be also pretty obvious.

      He has a bucket of acid waiting for her when she returns to Saudi Arabia. It’ll be like one of those water bucket on a rope over the door pranks, Muslim-style.

    And if she lived in Saudi instead of the US, it wouldn’t matter what daddy thinks. The Mutaween religious police would’ve made her wear a hijab. They actually stopped schoolgirls trying to escape a burning school because they never had hijabs on resulting in 15 girls dying.

    Cenk’s reasoning is solid as always. Rational, progressive, liberal, yet in keeping with the ideals of individual liberty.
    I don’t hate the hijab – I hate the idea of forcing women to have to wear it.

    • Posted by Dustin Zilbauer, at Reply

      +Anubis Shillingford On the contrary, wearing a veil, particularly a full veil like the niqab or burqa, _does_ cause physical harm. Lack of exposure to sunlight causes Vitamin D deficiency without supplements, which leads to rickets in both women and their unborn infants. Apparently, you don’t regard children with rickets to be physical harm.

    • Posted by Hobbes Tiger, at Reply

      OMG, you’re such a dumbass; lack of sunlight isn’t exactly a problem in the Middle Freakin’ East -_-
      So if anything, the veil actually PROTECTS women from harmful ionizing UV radiation which causes premature aging and skin cancer. Rickets is easily curable with Vit. D supplements while cancer is DEADLY.
      Your move dr. Asshat

    • Posted by Dustin Zilbauer, at Reply

      +Hobbes Tiger You’ve missed the point entirely. In countries like Saudi Arabia where the veil is required by law, women are not receiving enough sunlight. Skin cancer can easily be avoided with simple precautions, whereas rickets cannot where women are mandated by law to wear the veil.

    • Posted by Hobbes Tiger, at Reply

      I wonder what the cause for the disease known as *trolling* is? I bet it’s a parasite in your brain. -_-
      I actually looked up if rickets was any more prevalent among adult Saudi women than men or children. Guess what! It’s not (surprise, surprise). The most common cause of rickets in Saudi by a lightyear is nutritional, not due to lack of exposure to sunlight.
      And yes, skin cancer is far more deadly and not easily avoided in you live in the freakin’ desert.

    I’m an atheist, but if a Christian wants to wear a cross, or if an Amish wants to wear their traditional outfit, or if a Sikh wants to wear a turban, or if a Muslim wants to wear a head scarf, or if a Buddhist wants to wear a robe, or if a Catholic wants to become a nun…. don’t let *that* be what you judge them for. Judge them for their actions! All religious people around the world have committed acts of violence at some time, heck, even non-religious communities are not perfect. Give innocent Muslims a break.

    • Posted by gatesbrown26, at Reply

      epithymbria pointing out the oppressive symbolism of the hijab is NOT saying you can’t wear one

    • Posted by epithymbria, at Reply

      Sure… but why aren’t anti-muslims raging about what Catholic nuns wear? They are a pretty common sight around Europe, and they wear fully hair-covering and body-covering robes. Why aren’t we raging about Catholicism and saying that any nun or priest is being “oppressed” and would get “beaten by their father if they took their religious outfits off”?

    • Posted by Tom Davies, at Reply

      epithymbria – In western countries, a woman has a choice regarding whether she wishes to become a nun. If any are beaten up by their father for not covering, it is a tiny minority & would be breaking the law. In most Islamic countries, every woman is forced to cover and the law doesn’t protect them if a family member beats them up. MASSIVE difference.

    • Posted by epithymbria, at Reply

      No one is saying anything about islamic states or majority-muslim countries. We are talking about a girl living in the US, I believe? She is hopefully a progressive/modern Muslim, and we should be encouraging those who want to live in peace with us here in the West.

      +mike lomez The ultimate goal should be to cure humanity from backwards religions like Islam AND Christianity. But since we can’t easily do that, we have to allow people the right to practice their religion in the meantime. Freedom of ideas is extremely important.

  12. Posted by Tasheem Hargrove, at Reply

    I didn’t know the Koran didn’t say you have to cover your head. That’s surprising because the Bible does. Apparently, Christian women “dishonoureth their head”, because “the head of a man is Christ and the head of a woman is the man.”

    1 Corinthians 11:5-6

    It’s rather ironic that Muslim women are indoctrinated to believe this when Christian women aren’t. This is simply another example of how culture trumps religion in the game of covert coercion. Culture is not your friend.

    Atheist swear religion is the biggest oppressor. Libertarians would bet everything that government has all the control.

    Nothing controls your life like culture and its arbitrary traditions… its arbitrary rules and its dogmatism. There could be no government and no religion around to tell some of these women that they don’t have to hide themselves from the world, and they’d still wear it. Culture is very similar to gravity in that it effects your life tremendously, despite the fact you can’t physically see or touch it.

    • Posted by Ella Angel, at Reply

      i don t think you have seen christian women all over the world. orthodox christian women cover their heads when they enter churches and when they pray at home. again, covering of the head has to do with praying.

      The Qur’an was revealed in the Arabic language, we must understand its meanings by reference to the usage and conventions of that language. To use a translation, however accurate it may be, often does not properly convey the full nuances of the revealed Word.

      “And tell the believing women to lower their eyes, and guard their modesty, and that they display not their ornaments except what appears of them. And that they draw their scarves (khumurihinna) over their bosoms…”(An-Nur: 31)

      The word used in this context iskhumurwhich has been variously translated as veils or scarves; the latter is more precise for it is the plural ofkhimar, which has been defined as “a woman’s head covering; a piece of cloth with which a woman covers her head.”

      +amna k Too bad I decided to learn German instead of Arabic. I cannot confirm or deny what you’re saying. It could either be that fundementalist Muslims created this narrative to gain support for their beliefs, or you’re right. I don’t know.

      But either way, women are less-than according to either holy book. And I really don’t know what it’ll take for people, especially women, to stop defending these books.

    • Posted by amna k, at Reply

      Tasheem Hargrove Aw it’s never too late to learn Arabic, maybe then you can confirm for yourself rather than following the uneducated belief of ‘woman are less-than according to either holy book’ and maybe then you will understand why we defend the truth. Viel glück 😊

    I am an American who lived in Saudi Arabia for 7 years as a kid. My dad was an engineer for an oil company. And I can tell you first hand that the women have no choice. My mother had to cover up her entire body when she went into town. She is not even a Muslim. How are they pretending that it is a choice? TYT”s is doing some weird propaganda for the patriarchy. Liberals are very strange these days. You literally can’t make this stuff up.

      The essence of the faith does it for them – personal beliefs are an individual quest but the faith cannot be re-written to suit TYT’s agenda for the sake of popularity. Islam is anti-gay and anti-feminism. This is simply a fact.

      there are cherry pickers in all religions even in Islam

    • Posted by Anne Walsh, at Reply

      In fact, 2/3rds of American woman wear the scarf via religious and family pressure. It is not an option unless they with to be shunned or expelled from community depending on which sect of the Islamic faith they follow.

    • Posted by Anne Walsh, at Reply

      This is not cherry picking – this is the essence of Sharia as law and a political system which is favoured among 2/3rds of the global Islamic community. For better or worse Western cultures have decided to rewrite an entire doctrine to fit an inclusive agenda.

    • Posted by Anne Walsh, at Reply

      Individual faith is a personal choice – A personal Sharia is fine BUT – Sharia Law as law violates human rights. Know and understand the difference.

    I personally am not worried about hijab. Other cultures wear something similar. I get nervous around niqabs and burkas because I do not trust people when I cannot see their face. It is the same when someone wears a ski mask or obscures their face in another way.

    • Posted by Anne Yeary, at Reply

      Jasminewynja Because people read a religious text and lack the wisdom to consider the entire message and how it got into written form.

    • Posted by Jasminewynja, at Reply

      *+Anne Yeary* So to you a religion is the belief, not the teachings? Is that how you mean?

    • Posted by Anne Yeary, at Reply

      Jasminewynja Yes. The different denominations of Christianity is a prime example of that. They all read the same book, but interpret it differently. To say that the author of any book is at fault if people disagree about the meaning behind every part of it seems silly to me. Heck, you cannot even have a Pepsi commercial without people misinterpreting it.

    • Posted by Jasminewynja, at Reply

      *+Anne Yeary* Personally I make a distinction between what’s written in the “holy” books and it’s followers. As you do too. You can interpret some verses differently but if a verse say “men are in charge/the head of women…” and trying to normalize a symbol for that religious/ideological difference between men and women is problematic in my humble opinion.

    • Posted by Anne Yeary, at Reply

      Back then, physical labor was more in need than today. Men have more upper body strength and physical endurance on average in comparison to the average female. It becomes a problem when their ego gets in the way and they start believing that they women are subhuman because of it. That comes from insecurity.

    • Posted by Blue Mosquitoes, at Reply

      You can look at it two ways. Gender equality can be seen as supporting the choices of genders equally or supporting choices that treat both genders equally. Of course, choosin to adhere to a religion is the former. It will never be the latter as religion is based on tribal bullshit from millennia ago.

      So, take your pick. Respecting choices equally or respecting equal choices. you are right and wrong at the same time when it comes to religion.
