Tawakkol Karman's Quote About Hijab

Tawakkol Karman's perfect reply to journalist when she was asked about the logic behind her hijab. Where Hijab is viewed as a symbol oppression in today's scenario, the quote of Nobel laureate Tawakkol Karman about the logic behind doing hijab is the perfect hitting against those pseudo-intellectuals who see modernity behind vulgarity.

Before discussing what was her reply about Hijab, let's know about Tawakkol Karman briefly.

Who is Tawakkol Karman?

Tawakkol Karman also called as "Iron Woman" and "Mother of the Revolution" (by Yemenis), is a Yemeni Journalist, Human Right Activist, and Politician. She Co-founded the group "Women Journalists Without Chains" in 2005. She is a recipient of Nobel Peace Prize-2011 along with two others, becoming the first Yemeni, the first Arab woman, and the second Muslim woman to win a Nobel Prize and the second youngest Nobel Peace Laureate to date.

Here is what Tawakkol Karman said about Hijab:

When asked about her Hijab by Journalists and how it is not proportionate with her level of intellect and education, Tawakkol replied:
Man in the early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing clothes. What I am today and what I am wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilisation that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It's the removal of clothes again that is regressive back to ancient times.
 
(Tawakkol Karman, Nobel Laureate)
In today's world, where there are fallacious agendas have been aired about Islam and Muslims particularly about the subjugation of women which is certainly not, this answer of Tawakkol Karman makes a sense against all those Pseudos.

Hijab Isn't Prescribed For Women Only.

There is a common misconception against Hijab among us that hijab is something which only women should follow. However, it's not actually like that, Hijab is equally ordained for men too, but NOT identically!
