American Team Don Hijab to Support Captain
Cheering up their Muslim teammate, a Floridian high school football team decided to don hijab before their season finale game to show solidarity with their Muslim captain who has been taunted repeatedly over her religious outfit.
“Everybody looked at us weird,” West Broward senior Marilyn Solorzano told Sun Sentinel website on Friday, April 20.
“I understand now everything she went through and how hard it must have been.”
Irum Khan had rocks thrown at her and was physically attacked more than once simply because she wore the hijab. Her team decided to show support and solidarity in this wonderful manner. Faith in humanity: Nicely restored.
