I am very disappointed that Gap’s marketing plan uses a girl wearing the oppressive, Sharia mandated hijab. Gap should not promote the hijab especially to young girls who still have a choice not to surrender to the repressive attire and Sharia.
The Quran does not mandate or even mention the hijab. The hijab was invented in the 1970s over 1300 years after the Quran was written by Mussa Sadr, an Iranian mullah. The hijab is not derived from the Quran but is legislated by Islamist dictates and fatwas that oppress and dominate woman.
Women in Islamist controlled countries are fighting back against the hijab. The New York Times published an article on September 15, 2017 titled “The day 100,000 Iranian women protested the head scarf (hijab).” OddNaari published an article on July 13, 2013 titled “Iranian women are now defying compulsory hijab rule by refusing to wear it inside their cars.” StepFed published an article on July 14, 2017 titled: “Saudi religious police will study why some women don't wear hijab.” The Washington Post published an article on December 21, 2015 titled “As Muslim women, we actually ask you not to wear the hijab in the name of interfaith solidarity.” The article states in part: For us, as mainstream Muslim women, born in Egypt and India, the spectacle at the mosque was a painful reminder of the well-financed effort by conservative Muslims to dominate modern Muslim societies. We reject this interpretation that the “hijab” is merely a symbol of modesty and dignity adopted by faithful female followers of Islam.
Pew Research found that 57 percent of Muslim women in America do NOT wear hijabs according to an article published by NPR on April 21, 2011.
The hijab does not symbolize the freedoms and liberties bestowed upon all women who are under the protection of the United States Constitution.
Gap certainly has the right to use whatever props it deems important in its marketing. Likewise, I have the same right to express my disappointment and patronize companies that do not promote symbols of oppressive, Islamist doctrine.
I will remember Gap’s use of the oppressive, Sharia mandated hijab in its marketing when shopping for clothes.
