Poppy hijab sparks controversy in U.K.
The little red flower donned by many on their lapel to commemorate Remembrance Day is generating controversy in the United Kingdom, where the so-called poppy hijab for Muslim women was recently launched.
The colourful head scarf was created by the Islamic Society of Britain and the think-tank British Future as another way to honour fallen soldiers.
"Thousands of British Muslims already wear a poppy . . . This is just another way for them to show they remember those who gave their lives for their country," said society president Sughra Ahmed in a media statement.
