Here is a story of a 17-year old girl born in Muslim family who lives in the US. Her trouble began when she was condemned for wearing hijab. The comments posted about her on social media agonised her.
Read on to know what did she do.
Lamyaa who is 17 years old and a resident of Pennsylvania was facing a big problem regarding her religion and the way she abided by it.
She wears hijab.The reason normally perceived behind the act is that women are forced to wear hijab because they are born in Muslim communities.
About 10 days back, Lamyaa's faith was questioned by someone on social media by asserting that she doesn't wear it by wish but because of the family and religious pressures.
She had received similar posts on different social media platforms before. But this comment stuck to her. She decided to find an everlasting solution.
After receiving the scathing attack on April 14, she thought she would stop wearing Hijab. Nonetheless, she reached her father for help.
This is what her father told her.
"Sweetheart that's not my decision to make. That's no man's decision to make. If it's what you feel like you want to do, go ahead. I'll support you no matter what," her father said.
Lamyaa posted father-daughter conversation online and the response it received was huge. The conversation was re-tweeted more than 140,000 times and liked by more than 300,000 people.
Lamyaa wasn't forced to wear Hijab by her father. She accepted the fact that all people within a community don't hold the same view and therefore all people can't be painted with the same brush. There are people like her father who are liberal and there are others who force women to wear hijab.
