The Foreign and Commonwealth Office of the United Kingdom (FCO) has promoted the wearing of the Islamic veil amongst its London staff, using the February 1st occasion of “World Hijab Day” to promote the head covering and even issue “free scarves” to those who chose to try it. The department of the British government also promoted the idea of “liberation” when wearing the veil that Muslim women across the world have shunned as an antiquated, oppressive, religious tool.
