I've had enough of the sensationalist, exoticised, demeaning portrayals of Muslim women seen all throughout the media, and this is my way of countering all the nonsense.
This is not an attempt at 'breaking stereotypes' or trying to enlighten people, if you're ignorant enough to believe that Muslim women are oppressed and subjugated by Islam then that's your own problem.
This is my way of giving recognition to all the women who inspire me, and hopefully sending out some positive vibes.
We recently did a shoot with TV9’s women program called Safiya at our regular jamm studio, Akarkarya and one of our favorite people in the world Fateen took some pictures of us (using Azhar’s iPhone). We’ll keep you posted on the airing time and date for this particular episode once we get the heads up soon, yeah?
They did an interview with Nazz (vocals) on being a hijab-wearing plus size woman.
Nazz’s current favorite clothing piece —- that leopard print scarf from Cotton On.
