Being visibly Muslim in the West is a lot harder than most of us Desi folk in the subcontinent realize. This article is by a university educated Muslimah in the United States.

The hardest part about wearing a hijab, for me, is knowing that if I take it off, almost everyone would applaud me for being strong and courageous. No one would see that my willpower and pride had been broken. People would clap when I would actually need them to mourn with me and realize that the causes of that happening need to be eradicated.

Irony being that no one recognises the strength and courage that is required to keep it on.
