Then, we heard about Barbie releasing a line of Hijab-clad dolls based on Muslim Olympian, Ibtihaj Muhammad.

Well, it seems like the Western World is on a bit of a roll. Why? Because Nike just announced the release of Nike Pro Hijab.

That happens to be Nike’s new Hijab line.

This initiative is supposed to be a step forward for female Muslim athletes. It’s also supposed to be an inclusive gesture, to allow women of faith to partake in sports.

The pictures have been released, too…

The news spread on social media, too. Some considered the collection to be amazing.

Others appreciated the acknowledgment of the otherwise ignored Muslim women around the globe.

Some pointed out how it was about time such a step was taken.

People were already sold on the idea of Nike’s Hijab line.

Though there were some who were a bit more negative, firmly believing that the brand was pandering to Muslims…

…others were quick to highlight how they were shocked by the Islamophobic comments they saw.

Some even expressed their disappointment over the same.

Whatever the general sentiments may be, it’s truly great to see that some brands are adopting a more inclusive approach.

With the current wave of Islamophobia that has arisen, it is imperative that Muslims have a voice on bigger platforms. Moreover, it’s truly an empowering move for all those women who wish to pursue sports and be comfortable in the attire of their choice.

What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments.
