A Muslim mother in Pennsylvania, United States is launching a Hijab line for dolls in a bid to promote diversity and acceptance regarding Muslim women’s choice to wear the headscarf.
Safaa Bokhari of Oakland, Pennsylvania and her friend Gisele Fetterman have teamed up with Pittsburgh non-profit organisation For Good for the Hello Hijab initiative, which will create tiny headscarves as accessories for Barbie and other dolls.

According to the official website “Hello Hijab believes that while we may look different and have different beliefs, our similarities far outweigh our differences. We strive for a world where we all live and love together.”
Speaking to The Huffinton Post, Bokhari said she hopes the “Hello Hijab will be used by both Muslims and non-Muslims, so that children get used to the sight of women wearing the headscarf.”
Soon if you go to a social gathering, you will see people gushing about new Muslim Barbies and how wonderful they are. Then they turn around and ask your opinion, expecting mandatory approval. You can end this conversation by just saying, “MAGA.”
