Pervez Hoodbhoy, a controversial Pakistani activist, made a comment on live television that went viral on social media. In the statement, Hoodbhoy branded Hijabi women (women who wear veils) “less advanced and odd.”
Hoodbhoy has received a lot of backlash for his misogynist remarks against hijabi women, which many people find offensive. In response to Pervez Hoodbhoy’s disparaging remarks on the clothing choices of women who are devoted to their religion and Islamic culture, many hijabi scholars and hijabi intellectuals expressed their displeasure with him.
Kiran Naz, a Pakistani news anchor from Samaa News, stated her support for hijabi women and criticised Pervez Hoodbhoy’s disparaging remarks about them. Kiran Naz, in the middle of her show, donned a hijab and demonstrated that wearing a scarf does not prevent a woman from carrying out her responsibilities.
Kiran Naz has received a lot of good feedback on social media for her approach to wearing a hijab. Many people have referred to her as a figure of female strength who understands how to wear hijab while maintaining a successful career.
