United States First Lady Melania Trump decided not to wear a headscarf while accompanying her husband President Donald Trump on his first state visit to Saudi Arabia.
Two years after Donald Trump criticised Michelle Obama for not covering her head in Saudi Arabia, Melania Trump does just the same 20.5.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Accompanying her husband on his first international trip, US first lady Melania Trump today stepped off of Air Force One conservatively dressed in long sleeves and pants to conform to the strict dress code that Saudi Arabia enforces for its female citizens. But one thing was missing from her black and gold-belted ensemble: a head scarf. Instead, Trump's below-the-shoulder brown hair blew freely in the breeze at King Khalid International Airport in the capital city of Riyadh. Saudi Arabia is the first stop on a four-nation, five- stop tour that will also take Trump to Israel, Italy and Belgium before President Donald Trump returns to the White House at the end of next week. The first lady is joining the president for the entire trip. Melania Trump looks beautiful wearing pants and no hijab. President Trump shakes hands.

United States: Teacher rips hijab off 8-year-old girl's head for 'misbehaving', fired 10.5.2017 DNA: Opinion
A teacher at a US school has been fired after he allegedly ripped the hijab off an 8-year-old girl's head for "misbehaving" in class. Oghenetega Edah, 31, demanded that the girl at the Bennington School, Bronx, take off her religious scarf, police said. The girl was misbehaving in class and sitting in the teacher's chair without his permission. So the teacher tapped her on her arm to get her to move, The New York Post reported. When she did not comply, Edah, a substitute, threatened to take the scarf. "I'm taking it off," he said as he pulled the hijab off her head, causing an injury to her right eye, according to police. Doctors at Jacobi Hospital determined that the girl's cornea was not damaged. "This alleged behaviour is completely unacceptable," Michael Aciman, a Department of Education spokesman, said in a statement. "This individual was removed from the school immediately and his employment has been terminated," he said. Edah became a per diem substitute teacher in January 2017, the report said. ...

Burqa-clad women celebrate Pakistan Day despite warnings 24.3.2017 DNA: Top News
Defying the warnings of General Bipin Rawat, scores of burqa-clad women unfurled the Pakistani flag and sang Pakistan's national anthem to celebrate Pakistan Day in the militancy-plagued Kashmir valley. Organised by the radical women separatist group `Dukhtaran-e-Milat' (DeM), the participants sang jihadi anthems and called for the merger of Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan. The burqa-clad women were seen waiving the Pakistani flag and singing the national anthem of the neighbouring country on stage. A few children dressed in green and white (representing Pakistan's flag) were also up on the stage. Later, a group of young women took over the podium and sang Jihadi songs eulogising militants and disparaging the security forces operating in Kashmir. The venue was kept confidential to prevent police raids. However, the event seemed to have been organised at a huge enclosure, accommodating a large number of women activists. The area was decorated with the banners demanding freedom and merger of Kashmir with ...

From Max Mara at Milan Fashion Week to Issey Miyake to Vanessa Seward at the recently concluded Paris Fashion Week — hijab’s reinterpretation this season seems to be the major runway story. It’s fashion’s way of making the style spectrum all-inclusive and also a salute to the fashion-forward Middle Eastern women, who never skip a style beat while keeping their inherent modesty intact. Vogue Arabia’s new cover features supermodel Gigi Hadid in a beaded hijab. Looks like modesty seems to be the new black.
