Last quote by Shireen Ahmed

The headlines that scream about the accomplishment of a 'Hijabi American' are unhelpful as they reduce an athlete to her outfit. It can be noted that we don't refer to any other athlete who observes a faith by a religious accessory, be it a necklace or tattoo featuring a cross, the Star of David, or a 'Karma' symbol. The optics of a veiled Muslim woman in places where it has yet to be seen is not always understood or welcome. But she has been incredibly sincere in explaining about her journey: She did not have to fight against a ban in her sport.feedback
