It's "Wear a Hijab Day, Infidel"!

Okay, I added the infidel, but it's implicit in the effort. And, FYI, wearing a headscarf is, like, totally a gal's own choice--
LONDON – Scores of non-Muslim women worldwide are planning to don hijab on Friday, February 1, to mark the first annual World Hijab Day, hoping it would lead to more religious tolerance and understanding and stress the value of hijab as a Muslim choice. 
"I knew that it's about modesty of behavior, not just clothing, and that it's a faulty assumption that women only wear it if they're forced to - especially in the US," Esther Dale, 28, who lives in the US state of California, told The BBC...
--except when it isn't:
Islam sees hijab as an obligatory code of dress, not a religious symbol displaying one’s affiliations.
Meaning, silly infidelles, that it's obligatory for all chicks, not just Muslim ones.
