This day is being attributed to "Martyr of hijab Marva Al-Shirbini" who was stabbed in her back by a racist German Islamophobe in Court of Law.

Hijab, the veil, is an integral part of the everyday life of hundreds of millions of women across the globe; it is no wonder that the commandment of Hijab is found in so many religious scriptures including the Torah, Bible and the Quran, and Hijab is practiced in many cultures. For Muslim women, Hijab is not only a basic human right, but also a religious one.
As you are aware, our modesty, freedom of religion and the basic human right of Hijab are under attack in many parts of the world. We wish to make it clear to all that Hijab is not merely a religious symbol, but an integral part of our religion. It is not just a piece of cloth; it is our identity. We believe it to be a commandment from our Almighty Lord, Allah (SWT) and we comply with His Command. Our right to dress with modesty is also recognized in the U.N Declaration of Human Rights. To deny us this is to deny us our religious and human rights.
in recent years, we have witnessed a concerning phenomenon in countries such as France and Germany, where the authorities have commenced restricting women's autonomy through banning Muslim women's Hijab. This is in blatant contravention of the European Convention on Human Rights.
The Muslim Women's Society (MWS) and the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) are launching the 'Assembly for the Protection of Hijab' otherwise known as Pro-Hijab in order to address this serious issue and to use all peaceful and legal means to protect the right of any woman to wear Hijab. Contrary to popular opinion, the majority of women freely chose to wear the Hijab as an expression of their obedience to God - not due to coercion by family or male relatives.
This Hijab campaign has the support of numerous national and international organisations including Liberty for Human Rights, the National Assembly Against Racism (NAAR), The Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe (FIOE), Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE), Islamic Society of Britain (ISB), Association of Muslim Lawyers (AML), Federation of Student Islamic Societies in the UK (FOSIS), Muslim Lawyers (ML), EMEL Magazine and to name a few, as well as a number of officials including Fiona McTaggart MP, Ken Livingston Mayor of London, George Galloway MP, Caroline Lucas MEP and other prominent community figures both in Europe and around the Globe.
The inaugural event of this assembly will be a conference entitled: 'Hijab: A Woman's right to choose' to be held on 12th July 2004 and hosted by the Mayor of London Ken Livingston and the Greater London Authority at City Hall, London. The Conference will be officially opened by the Mayor of London and the guest of honour is the jurist Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, Head of the European Council for Fatwa and Research. Dr Tariq Ramadan and Sarah Joseph will also address the audience regarding the significance and status of the Hijab in Islam and the European Muslim identity.
The Assembly for the Protection of Hijab has declared the 4th of September as a worldwide International Hijab Solidarity Day. Muslim women continue to suffer in countries such as France, Germany, Tunisia and Turkey, to name but a few, where the Hijab has been banned thus ostracising those who wear it from the very societies in which they live.
Following the remarkable success of the 17th January 04 “International day to support the Hijab” in which event took place in more than 35 countries around the world, the 4th of September will be another show of solidarity for religious freedom supporters.
The 4th of September also marks the return to school of girls in France, where the ban in academic institutions will commence. Such a ban will serve to create outcasts of every Hijab wearing Muslim girl causing untold psychological damage. The show of solidarity on 4th September is expected to provide these girls with the support and strength in order to fight for their rights.
The issue of the Hijab ban is a live one and with the continual escalation of the ban, Protect-Hijab thinks it is imperative to keep it at the forefront. Organisations, individuals and all those supporting the right of Muslim Woman to wear the Hijab will use September 4th to show solidarity with all Muslim women who are being denied education, freedom of expression and basic human rights and civil liberties.
While in France, young girls are being stopped from entering school premises wearing the Hijab; in Turkey Muslim women are being denied medical treatment and excluded from parliament for wearing the Hijab; and in Tunisia Muslim women are taken to prison and tortured if they wear Hijab. These are some examples of the persecution suffered by women simply because they follow a religious teaching as an expression of their faith.
Protect-Hijab calls people of all faiths and no faith to show solidarity on the 4th September events everywhere in the world. The Protect-Hijab campaigns will continue as long as there are bans against the Hijab in place.
