A call out from Imaan Networking, she recounts an experience she has had a few times in the UKs airports and then asks us to make the following deal:
So here is the deal I want to make with my fellow scarf wearers, when asked at the aiport to allow a headscarf check, do not refuse but insist on one of the following:
1- a private room where the check can be carried out. I do this and even offer to take it off (in front of women) if they are that worried about, but not in front of other people.
2- a FULL body check so that onlookers do not think that it is the headscarf that they are worried about.
To which I say: DEAL!
