    men are posting pictures of themselves online wearing the traditional Muslim headscarf.

    Maybe the media could also help by not demonizing hijab-wearing women as "radicalized" or "Islamists". They're

    usually depicted as oppressed and/or brainwashed for choosing to dress modestly. This is a very beautiful initiative

    though, respect to the people of Sweden.

    Way to go people of Sweden. Hijab is outer covering that is the most obvious declaration of being Muslim. No one

    should be persecuted because of their clothing. 8)

    It's funny because the Muslims in Sweden mostly cause a lot of trouble.
