Dina talks about online hijab community
She has been a blogger for the last 10 years. And last week she shared her thoughts on Insta story!
Referring to the online hate she receives on a daily basis, she said:
“To address my ‘hijabi community starting to become like a toxic cult’ comment. I’m referring to the onslaught of slander and insults I’ve received from a community that I was very much a part of and helped build… all because of my personal decision to basically wear it when I want to.”
She added on:
“I’ve heard people assume I’ve used the headscarf for ‘fame and money’. I started blogging when I was already wearing a scarf. I just wanted to enjoy fashion I could relate to… I’m a whole different person to who I was when I started. People change, and that’s a great thing… it’s called progression.”
