Why we celebrate World Hijab Day?
Every religion has its own teachings to protect her woman but in a diverse way. The main thing that matters is a character that should be as solid as rock. In this matter, no religion compromises for both genders male and female. Because morality is somehow present everywhere depends on them they follow it or not.

History of Pakistan and Hijab
Media is a platform that demands show-off to beat. In Pakistan, there are very few females who wear hijab in electronic media. Asma Sherazi is an influential name in the media industry. She has been covering her head and carrying hijab since 2000 till the present. She is a commentator and journalist, winner of the 2014 Peter Mackler Award of Courage and Ethical Journalism.
Massart Misbah proves that you can look fabulous at any age and her simple dropped dupatta is a minimalist yet chic pin on the hijab. Pakistani Celebrity Sadia Imam, Urooj Nasir a well-known host, actress, and model, Sana Chaudhary, and Satesh Khan started carrying hijab after a change of marriage took place in their life.
All the above-mentioned women were powerful women but their hijab is their identity and pride as well and the non-Muslim one’s power was their strong character. Both things are as necessary and vital for a strong and complete application of hijab as safeguard and protection.
A woman is said to carry a hijab. But a woman who is not carrying a hijab both are respected and valued. because both are human and respect is a right of every human. Hijab is safety, protection and a woman who carries a hijab is obeying Allah Almighty’s order and following the Sunnah of Respected Wives and Daughters of Our Holy Prophet ( blessings and peace be upon him).
