    [W:51]New Zealand Women Covering Their Hair for Solidarity with Muslims- How do You Feel About This?

    Started by New Zealand's President Jacinda Ardern, women in New Zealand were encouraged to cover their heads after the Christchurch attack, in order to show support for the victims. Judging by online news sources, thousands of Kiwi women and girls have donned headscarfs, and voluntarily covered their hair.







    How do you feel about this? Personally, I don't remember Muslim women dressing in Western apparel, or donning Christian religious symbols to show solidarity with non-Muslim women after 9/11, or any of the hundreds of Islamic attacks in the Western world since then. Ardern's message to the Islamic community was, 'We Stand With You'. I'm not so sure Ardern knows the significance to Muslims of seeing thousands of Kiwi women wearing headscarfs. It looks like submission to them.

    That's an unhealthy obsession you have there. Most people just think of headscarves.

    So what? If women across New Zealand want to wear headscarves to show solidarity with Muslims after such a heinous event, I have zero problem with that.

    How the idea originated....

    Auckland doctor Thaya Ashman came up with the idea to encourage people to wear a headscarf after hearing about a woman who was too scared to go out because she felt her headscarf would make her a target for terrorism.

    "I wanted to say: 'We are with you, we want you to feel at home on your own streets, we love, support and respect you'," Dr Ashman said.

    Good for them.

    Funny thing about that Ardern woman ... she was raised a Mormon, left the church about 10 years ago because of its LGBT stance, is now "agnostic" ... and ends up donning Muslim headgear as a sign of solidarity ...

    A typical liberal politician.

    It's heartwarming to see the majority of New Zealand citizens coming together as one in powerful symbol of unity to denounce such a heinous act.

    I can't comprehend why anyone would actually have a problem with that. The ones that do have a problem with it are clearly only looking at ways to go out of their way to divide us.
