"A young Muslim teen's text with her father has gone viral online. According to BuzzFeed, 17-year-old Lamyaa from Pennsylvania found herself in an altercation about Donald Trump in a group chat. According to Lamyaa, her status as a Muslim woman elicited a negative response from a fellow chat member, who claimed that "[her] dad would beat" her if she removed her headscarf. In order to prove the person wrong, the Muslim teen texted her dad about her hijab, which led to all kinds of responses online. From support to criticism, Lamyaa's tweet sparked a debate about the hijab.

Lamyaa shared a screenshot of the person who allegedly told her to take her hijab off. She shared it along with a screenshot of her speaking with her father who lives in Saudi Arabia. She told her father that she wanted to tell him something and he responded in Arabic, "My love, are you OK?" Lamyaa told her father that she was considering taking her hijab off — occasionally called "dejab" by some Muslims — and her father proceeded to tell her that it was her prerogative to do so, writing, "Sweetheart that's not my decision to make. That's no man's decision to make.”*
