Swedish Women Campaign For Muslim Rights By Donning Hijabs

One Swedish Muslim woman allegedly has her hijab ripped off her head, and it prompts a campaign for Muslim rights.

Swedish women posted photos of themselves online in traditional Muslim headscarves this week, in solidarity with a woman apparently attacked for wearing such a head covering, reported the BBC on Thursday.

Using the hashtag #hijabuppropet, which translates to mean “hijab outcry,” a number of women in the country published pictures of themselves on Twitter and other social media websites.

The women taking part in the show of support were from various faiths and included some high profile campaigners; politicians Asa Romson and Veronica Palm as well as TV host Gina Dirawi.
The women said they wanted to draw attention to the “discrimination that affects Muslim women” in Sweden, reported the BBC.
Now I do not advocate violence- the woman apparently had to be taken to the hospital after having her head, allegedly, slammed into a car- but where is the outcry for all the attacks against the Jewish population in Sweden?  There are a slew of articles about the escalating violence against Jews, and nothing is being done about that.

Anti-Semitic attacks have tripled in Malmö, a Muslim enclave, since 2010.
