BETRAYAL: The Xtian CEO of the YWCA outrages many of her faith by donning a hijab in solidarity with muslims
Some women say their hijab represents religiously mandated modesty.
Some women say their hijab is a political statement.
Some women say they are forced to wear a hijab.
Pat Shea, a non-Muslim voluntarily put on a hijab during a mosque sermon on “Domestic Violence/Compassionate & Honorable Treatment Towards Women in Islam.”
Pat Shea is the YWCA CEO and operates the largest domestic violence shelter in the state of Tennessee. Does Shea know that the hijab is a source of violence to Muslim women worldwide and in the U.S?
Muslim women have been killed for refusing to wear a hijab. For example:
- 2007 – Canada, murder of 16 year old Aqsa Parvez choked to death by her father
with the hijab she refused to wear
- 2014 – in Somalia, woman murdered for refusing to veil
- 2015 – Iraq, five women stoned to death for not wearing a hijab
- 2015 – India, father kills his four year old daughter for not wearing a hijab at dinner
January 2015, a non-Muslim woman living in Muslim-majority Bangladesh murdered for not wearing a hijab
Muslim women have been threatened with violence for not wearing a hijab. For example:
- 2011 – Britain, woman is threatened with death by her cousin for not wearing a hijab
- 2013 – Sudan, a woman faces whipping for not wearing a hijab
- 2014 – Pankisi Gorge, a brother stabs his sister for refusing to wear a hijab
- 2015 – Missouri, a high school student dragged her from her
classroom and assaulted by a relative for not wearing a hijab

They reject Western women showing “solidarity” by participating in “Wear a Hijab” day and interfaith imitators tying on the headscarf.
In fact, these adult Muslim women explain that hijab doesn’t even mean headscarf. “This conflation of hijab with the secular word headscarf is misleading. ‘Hijab’ literally means ‘curtain’ in Arabic. It also means ‘hiding,’ ‘obstructing’ and ‘isolating’ someone or something. It is never used in the Koran to mean headscarf.”
These women understand that if Muslim women living in the West are free to choose hijab or no hijab, patriarchy in Islam which is supported and perpetuated by political Islamists, will cease to dominate.
Political Islamists like Remziya Suleyman and Kasar Abdullah Bigdawidi (pictured above with Shea), are Muslim activists who have promoted Islamist Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR and the Muslim Students Association. They assert absurd hijab positions like the hijab gives
