Canadian College Student Experiments Wearing A Hijab

A Canadian college student recently led a social trial to check whether individuals treated her distinctively in the event that she wore a hijab - a conventional Muslim cover that blankets a lady's head and midsection - and what she uncovered was a bit sudden. Anisa Rawhani, a third-year student at Queens University in Ontario, wore the conventional Muslim clothing for 18 days in January as she worked at the college's library, gone by stores and restaurants close to the yard and as she did volunteer work with nearby kids. As stated by Rawhani - who led the trial to check whether individuals in her group were supremacist towards minority bunches - she perceived that individuals really treated her more compassionate and with more appreciation than when she didn't wear the hijab. "There was this excess (of niceness) that I would experience that I couldn't account for," she said. "Like really going the extra mile like smiling broadly and being so so polite, which I've never experienced before. It was a stark contrast that was going on that threw me for a loop. In general, just from my interactions, I think people honestly believe in equality and have those values but they just don't know how to interact with minorities." Rawhani was inspired by an experiment conducted in the United States where women were asked to wear the hijab to see if they were treated differently. Hijabs have long been the topic of controversy in society with extreme opinions, and we're hoping for more positive ones.
