Beautiful calligrapher Selma Mekic on the hijab: From time to time on target, but I am a woman fighter!

The young calligrapher and fashion designer from Novi Bazaar, Selma Mekic, marked a beautiful jubilee yesterday, with which she gave an interesting, and nowadays, bold review of a woman under the hijab.

Mekic, a graduate pedagogue at the Faculty of Islamic Sciences in Belgrade, and a very frequent and dear guest of Sarajevo,  recalled the period when a decade and a half ago she decided to wear a headscarf in accordance with Islamic tradition. She was 15 years old then, and she still wears the hijab today and proudly promotes it.

-On this day, fifteen years ago, I entered the world of covered women. Exactly half my life (I’m thirty now). When they ask me if I’m hot over the summer, I always just laugh and say it’s hot over the summer for everyone. I don’t even think about the heat coming from my scarf. The heat comes from the summer sun. Some think I’m a good one and some think I’m a bad role model. Probably both are partly right. I certainly have moments when I’m both. I guess it’s so destined for human nature.

I sincerely hope for God’s mercy that my book from the right shoulder will prevail in the other world and that I was not buttoned up to the throat from the age of fifteen. Those who think it’s easy to walk all over the world as a transparent Muslim woman with a hijab, and it’s not exactly. You are on target from time to time. There will be prejudices, denials, denials of some rights that had to be fought for (my first ID card in my country was with a photo without a hijab, even though I wore a hijab). And no one has the right to give me lectures about something he has never been through and which he has not even partially tried to adhere to. If you don’t touch me, I’ll be gentle and calm, as will the name that means to me. If you challenge me, don’t complain about the sharpness of my temperament. Because my mother didn’t give birth to me to nod my head,
