BYU students wear hijabs to show support for Muslims
by Ashley Moser
A group of BYU students is turning heads on campus by wearing traditional hijabs.
For the last three Wednesdays, Sondra Sasser and 11 other students have added the garment to their wardrobe to show support for Utah's Muslim community.
Most of the students are majoring in Middle Eastern studies, so they are very familiar with the culture. They have also been in contact with Muslim community leaders in Salt Lake City.
"A lot of Muslims are feeling uncomfortable about things and they are feeling scared about things or just misunderstood, and so any show of solidarity, I think, can be touching," Sasser said.
