Sri Lanka: On the Hijab

Married With Kids on wearing the Hijab and the changes in people's behaviour towards her. “My family, as a whole is not overly into religious identity, and stuff, and opt for a more secular look.
I did too, but, somehow, a change within, was happening for quite a while when I felt, am I ashamed of who I am? The need to assert myself, and my belief, was what set me on the road to adopting the Hijab as a dress code.”
