Popular Muslim influencer, teacher and Imam has laid out his own views concerning toddlers and little children on hijab. Mohammad Tawhidi, a Muslim reformist who believes children shouldn’t be on hijab.
“Imam of Peace” as he calls himself on Social Media platform Twitter categorically wondered why parents will be covering their kids with scarfs and robes meant for grownup women in a video he shared, stated that the act sexualizes little girls.
Of course comments poured in. Some in support and others objecting.
She’s a toddler that can’t even walk. Why do you cover her up with a robe and scarf that’s intended for mature women only? Even if you claim it’s a religious practice, it doesn’t apply to baby girls. You’re sexualizing a baby girl. You are sick.pic.twitter.com/nsIeOfyLYE
