Target: Saba Ahmed

Goal: Support Saba Ahmed, who wore an American flag hijab while debating religious freedom on Fox News.

Saba Ahmed, a Muslim-American republican, appeared on Fox News wearing an American flag hijab. Some are calling her hijab an insult to the flag and to America, and say that a Muslim shouldn’t be allowed to sport the American flag in such a supposedly disrespectful way. People are going so far as to say that it’s “bad timing” for a Muslim to be wearing the American flag.

Ahmed was appearing on Fox News to debate religious freedom and Donald Trump’s proposal to close some American mosques. She has since defended her choice to wear the flag as a hijab, saying it was meant to show her patriotism and demonstrate that Muslims are proud Americans who want to live in peace.

Some complained that the American flag shouldn’t be used as a garment, although many Americans wear the flag as shirts, bikinis or hats.

This kind of Islamophobic behavior by American people towards Saba Ahmed is unnecessary and embarrassing to America. Tell Saba Ahmed you support her proudly wearing the American flag as a hijab to demonstrate her patriotism.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mrs. Ahmed,

You recently wore an American flag hijab while discussing religious freedom on Fox News, and many viewers had a distasteful and racist reaction to it. Some are saying that you insulted the flag and that a Muslim American woman should not be allowed to wear the flag as a garment of clothing, especially with the recent world events.

This is absolutely ridiculous and is pure Islamophobia, especially considering many Americans wear the flag as shirts or bikinis. I support you wearing the American flag as a hijab to show your patriotism.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. I will NOT sign this petition. Muslims will kill if their religion is disrespected, so why do we stand by and allow our flag to be used in this way? It’s obviously an act of contempt for America. Why would we defend her for disrespecting our national symbol? Multiculturalism and tolerance is on a slippery slope to Western cultural suicide.
