Muslim designer’s hijab in support for same-sex marriage

A Muslim fashion designer has released a rainbow hijab to show support for same-sex marriage.

The Australian company, MOGA, released the rainbow headscarf in support of LGBT rights.

A battle is currently raging for same-sex marriage in Australia as a postal referendum took place over the issue.

In a statement, the company said it wanted to offer support for same-sex marriage, emphasising the public vote’s significance.

The statement said: “We at MOGA are proud to voice our support for marriage equality in Australia.

“Our love and adoration towards the LGBTQI community is strong and we have designed a limited-edition rainbow striped Pride scarf”.

The scarf is designed to honour the LGBTQI community’s “strength, bravery and inclusive spirit.”

The scarf is available in the ASOS boutique for the South Yarra-based company.

Retailing at around £42, the headscarf is printed on silk crepe de chine.

The founder of MOGA, Azahn Munas, said: “Like with our previous designs, our Pride scarf can be worn [by] anyone.

“Everyone should feel proud of who they are, regardless of their skin colour, religious beliefs, or sexual orientation,” Munas added. “And everyone deserves the right to love, and be loved in return.”

The company has become known for making political statements through its designs.

It previously released an Australia Day collection which promoted diversity.

Its ‘More than Meat’ collection includes a print made of raw meat.

The company says the collection meant to demonstrate that women are “not just a piece of meat.”

MOGA also donates 20 percent of profits to the CARE foundation, which encourages access to education for girls in Pakistan.

There has been a bigger turnout in Australia’s same-sex marriage postal survey than in the UK’s Brexit referendum.

Voters had until 7 November to return their ballots, before results are announced on 15 November.
