M&S selling hijabs for young children

High street chain Marks and Spencer have sparked outrage after selling a hijab for young children.

In a series of tweets, the company confirmed that the large size “should fit well for a 6-8 year old”.

Maajid Nawaz was one of those angered by the revelation, tweeting: “Marks and Spencer facilitates medievalism by selling children’s hijabs in the school-wear category.

“It’s their right to choose profit over values. But it’s our right to shame them for doing so. Little girls are told it is ‘immodest’ to show their hair. And blessed be the fruit.”

Nawaz also pointed out how women are still oppressed and forced to wear the hijab, as is the case in Iran.

Yasmine Mohammed was angry as well and said: “Fuck you so much Marks and Spencer. From the bottom of my heart, sincerely, fuck you.”

Aussie commentator Rita Panahi weighed in and said: “This is vile Marks and Spencer. Modesty culture is backward & subjugating but even in Saudi Arabia toddler girls aren’t required to cover their hair.”

Another person tweeted: “No. Don’t fucking do this! Kids shouldn’t have to cover, nobody should but especially not little girls.

“There’s too many families forcing little girls to do this for it to be commercialized and applauded like this.”

The absolute state of modern Britain. Marks and Spencer should think again. This is outrageous.
