The definition of "Hijab" is "A Muslim Womans headcoverning". Please note "MUSLIM" WOMANS HEAD COVERING. Not Jewish,Christian,Hindu butIslam. Islam, being a violent, aggressive and repressive political ideology, the symbols of Islam become symbols of terrorism and repression. Perhaps because you have internalized the Islamic dogma, you believe Islam is tolerant and seeks peace. The facts are that Islam is an ideology spread by violence, intimidation, and the threat of violence. The symbols are used to intimidate and make others uncomfortable and to set Muslim women separate and apart.
