In this in-depth episode of the Blood Brothers Podcast, Dilly Hussain speaks with anti-Islamophobia activist and campaigner Sahar Al-Faifi.
Sahar, who is a molecular geneticist by profession, describes the microaggressions she experiences on a daily basis while travelling as Muslim woman in niqab, besides the numerous cases of being verbally abused for the way she is dressed.
She also explains why the niqab is her jihad and represents a form of resistance to the global Islamophobia industry, and why similarly the French colonialists also despised Muslim women wearing the burqa in Algeria.
Topics of discussion also include why the Left is widely regarded as the natural political allies of Muslims in the West and the conflict of values that have emerged there, as well as the implications of Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman’s new “modernised” Saudi Arabia – which is Sahar’s country of origin.
