The poppy hijab is just Islamophobia with a floral motif

The poppy hijab is just Islamophobia with a floral motif
Description
For some time, my research has shown that Muslim women who wear the hijab or other types of Muslim attire are the most likely to become victims of street-level Islamophobia. The explanation is simple: those wearing the hijab are easily recognisable as being Muslim. For perpetrators, the hijab is also seen to symbolise Islam, or more appropriately, all that they perceive to be wrong or problematic about Islam.

Blog: Pickles' Tower Hamlets takeover: a sad affair all round
