WORLD HIJAB DAY COMMEMORATION STARTED IN 2013, it is a day set aside for recognition of Muslimahs who wears hijab and had chose to live a modest life, on this day Muslimah and Non-Muslimah  don the Hijab (the veil). The aim of this day is to create better awareness for the use of hijab, as well as helping in greater understanding thereby heralding a peaceful world, this is to help foster religious tolerance.
The hijab as it is, has different meanings to different people, some sees it as a symbol of segregation and oppression, but to most people that wear the hijab, citing myself as an example: MY HIJAB IS MY PRIDE, MY HIJAB MAKES ME MODEST, MY HIJABS COMMANDS RESPECT FOR ME IN THE LEAGUE OF FEMALES.
