Sweden: Town’s hijabi welcome sign vandalized amid threats

“The Swedish town of Gävle’s decision to place a hijab-clad Muslim woman on its welcome sign in order to ‘celebrate diversity’ has triggered strong reactions…..The “Welcome to Gävle” digital sign featuring local Muslim woman Suzan Hindi wearing a hijab has been vandalised… many interpreted it as political correctness gone too far and as a dangerous sign of Sweden caving in to Islam and pandering to extremists. Others saw the hijab as a symbol of oppression that has no place in a democratic society.”

Vandalizing the sign is wrong. Those who seek to label truth-tellers as purveyors of “Islamophobia” will also claim in this case that “Islamophobia” was the cause of the vandalizing of the sign. They will try to obscure the fact that the hijab is a symbol of oppression that should not be celebrated in any society where men and women are equal under the law; it is a visible sign of a theological and legal system in which women are inferiors. Other problems with the sign were reported in Jihad Watch‘s earlier coverage:

“A Swedish municipality is facing backlash after selecting a local Muslim woman wearing a headscarf to be the ‘poster girl’ for its roadside ‘welcome’ sign. Her past ties to a controversial local imam were also discovered.”

The intent of featuring the hijabi “poster girl” is to flaunt diversity, no matter what that diversity represents. In this case, “diversity” is represented by Suzan Hindi — who once went by the name Nizam Hindi — wearing a hijab. She has ties to a jihad-preaching mosque. Hindi once “explained how having their own prayer house was good for the Swedish municipality’s Muslim community, how aid from Saudi Arabia and Qatar helped to buy and furnish the building, and how listening to the imam is important during the prayer.”
