The Iron Woman reply on HIJAB

She is known among Yemenis as “the iron woman” and the “mother of the revolution.” A conservative woman fighting for change in a conservative Muslim and tribal society, Nobel Peace Prize winner Tawakkul Karman has been the face of the mass uprising against the authoritarian regime of President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

She is also  First Arab Woman and Youngest Nobel Peace Laureate – in Hijab!

The 32-year-old Karman has been an activist for human rights in Yemen for years, but when she was arrested in January, it helped detonate protests by hundreds of thousands demanding the ouster of Saleh and the creation of a democratic government.

When the Nobel announcement was made Friday, Karman was where she has been nearly every day for the past eight months: in a protest tent in Change Square, the roundabout in central Sanaa that has been the symbolic epicenter of the revolt.

“This prize is not for Tawakkul, it is for the whole Yemeni people, for the martyrs, for the cause of standing up to (Saleh) and his gangs. Every tyrant and dictator is upset by this prize because it confronts injustice,”

she told The Associated Press from her tent as she received congratulations from other activists.

“Don’t worry about Yemen. Yemen started in peace and it will end its revolution in peace, and it will start its new civil state with peace,” she said.

Her husband, Mohammed al-Nahmi, sitting with her in the tent as he received congratulations, told AP,

“This is a prize she deserves. Before she is my wife, she is a colleague, and a companion in the struggle.”

Karman, a mother of three, originally hails from the southern city of Taiz, a city known for its prominent middle class and university intellectuals that has long been a hotbed of opposition to Saleh. Her father, Abdul-Salam Karman, was once the legal affairs minister under Saleh, but resigned to protest government corruption.

Karman headed the Women Journalists without Chains, a human rights group for journalist. A senior member of Yemen’s opposition Islamic fundamentalist Islah Party who wears the Muslim headscarf, she has campaigned for years for greater rights for women in the conservative nation and has been organising smaller-scale protests demanding an end to harassment of journalists and greater freedom of expression.

After anti-regime protests erupted in Tunisia in late 2010, and protests against Saleh began to grow in Sanaa and Taiz in January.

But they escalated dramatically after Karman was briefly arrested from her home in Sanaa on January 23. It is rare for women to be taken into custody in Yemen, and the arrest outraged many. She was held for a few hours, released in the early hours the next day — but the momentum had built for the protests to expand.

i think this much is enough as for her introduction.let me come to main point.

When she asked about her Hijab by Journalists and how it is not proportionate with her level of intellect and education, she replied:

“Man in early times was almost naked, and as his intellect evolved he started wearing clothes. What I am today and what I’m wearing represents the highest level of thought and civilization that man has achieved, and is not regressive. It’s the removal of clothes again that is regressive back to the ancient times”


She really makes me fill with Pride by looking at her  undying passion for justice and her strong conviction in hijab.

May Allah swt continue to increase her passion and strengthen her resolve in all she does.
