The Poppy Hijab is about the remembrance many Muslims take part in - not the actions of a violent few.
31st October 2014

A London fashion student has come up with a new way for British Muslims to mark Remembrance Day. Tabinda-Kauser Ishaq designed a Poppy Hijab, which launches today. 

The poppy hijab hopes to educate the public about what Muslims did during WW1 and to help quash anti-Muslim prejudice. 

Today marks 100 years since the first Muslim soldier was awarded the Victoria Cross for bravery; Sepoy Khudadad Khan was one of 400,000 Muslims who fought in the First World War.
