A number of Swedish individuals are showing their support to one hijab-wearing woman who was harassed and assaulted in Stockholm last Friday night. According to police, the victim believes this was a faith-based hate crime. Using the hashtag #HijabUppropet, which means 'hijab outcry', women, children and even men are posting pictures of themselves online wearing the traditional Muslim headscarf.
