Hijab or veil is a piece of cloth worn by women, mostly Muslim women, to cover their head, chest and sometimes also face. Some women wear a headscarf to cover their head and hair, while others wear a burka or niqab, which also covers up their face. The word hijab describes the act of covering up generally but is often used to describe the headscarves worn by Muslim women. These scarves come in many styles and colors. Wearing hijab in public is required by law in Saudi Arabia, Iran and the Indonesian province of Aceh. Other countries, both in Europe and in the Muslim world, have passed laws banning some or all types of hijab in public or in certain types of locales. Women in different parts of the world have also experienced unofficial pressure to wear or not wear hijab.
It is a woman’s choice whether she opts for wearing a hijab or not. It should be completely her own decision. That is why women all around the world are often seen protesting this deliberate violation of their basic right and rebelling against it by wearing a hijab. Even in a Muslim country like Pakistan, not many celebrities wear hijab, and when they do, it becomes an instant matter of conversation and critique. Some choose it as a lifestyle and some wear it for fun or fashion and sometime it’s the demand of their character that they wear a hijab. Where some celebrities were highly appreciated and adored for wearing hijab, some faced harsh and critical backlash for their hijabi look.
