A Muslim student at the University of Central Florida (UCF) wants a freshman conservative student expelled because of what she had to say about the hijab.
On Thursday, Kathy Zhu, 19, noticed a booth set up on campus by the Muslim Students Association that invited women to try on a hijab and take one home for free. After all, it was World Hijab Day. Zhu was especially drawn in by the signs that read, “My hijab empowers me,” and “My hijab is a symbol of understanding.” She found that to be rather odd and snapped a few photos to post to Twitter:
Zhu posted a video explaining exactly what happened:
The tweet started to gain traction and made its way back to one of the Muslim students at the booth who went by the handle @anotherarabb on Twitter. She has since deleted her account (surprise, surprise), but here’s what she said before she did:
After hearing about the ordeal, an Australian imam sent UCF a letter urging them not to expel the student and told them that what the Muslim students were doing with the booth actually goes against Islamic teachings:
Tawhidi later taunted “another Arab” after he saw she had changed her Twitter account and protected it: “What happened? Backfired on you?”
UCF released a statement saying there will be no course of action and that neither student broke their rules of conduct. But not so fast:
But Zhu has to deal with this kind of lunacy on a regular basis. Just a few days ago, she ran across another crazy sight on campus when she saw two grown men (term used lightly) playing in a ball pit “safe space:”
Zhu remains committed to exposing the truth behind the oppression of Islam:
Meanwhile in Iran, the very religion these coddled college Muslims are advocating for is arresting women who are shedding their head coverings in public, climbing on top of telecom boxes, and waving the scarf in solidarity with personal freedom. So far, 29 Iranian women have been arrested for breaking the mandatory hijab law.
But, sure, tell us again how hijabs empower women.
