However, in response to her statement, one person on the group abused her and asked her to sit down. Lamyaa felt that reaction was mostly because she was a Muslim. She sent a text to her father to prove this person wrong and later shared the screenshot of the chat on social media. Her tweet read as, “Since this is a mentality a lot of you seem to have.” Her father’s progressive remarks have won millions of hearts on various social media platforms.
Some people even misunderstood Lamyaa’s chat with her father and to clarify things she shared another post saying her point was not to prove that no women are forced to wear hijabs. She said, “I personally chose to wear the hijab, for myself and for god.”
