Non-Muslim University of Saskatchewan students wear hijabs
University of Saskatchewan students were given the chance to walk in the shoes, or rather, the headcovering of their Muslim classmates.
The U of S Muslim Students' Association hosted the Hijab Day Challenge. Organizers of the event, which was part of Islam Awareness Week, gave non-Muslim students the chance to learn about the hijab and wear one for the day.
"There are women out there who have people come up to them and they might say something to them offensive, like 'go back to your country' or 'you're oppressed' or 'you're forced to wear this,'" said Amna Khizer, one of the organizers.
