Ep 108 - The First Niqabi in European Politics? (ft. Sahar Al-Faifi)
Please consider supporting us here at The Muslim Vibe, just £10 per month would go such a long way: https://themuslimvibe.com/support -- This week our host Salim speaks to Sahar Al-Faifi, who describes herself as a "molecular biologist by training and an activist by passion". Sahar is running to be a Plaid Cymru Senedd Member - a member of the Welsh parliament - and in this discussion, we gain some more insight into her reasons and motivations, as well as some of her thoughts and beliefs. She speaks on institutionalised Islamophobia and its effects, how it trickles down into the daily norm, the normalised toxicity of politics, the harmful rhetoric that is more and more widespread, and how being visibly Muslim and wearing the niqab plays into her political and personal identity. Should she be successful, she would be the first niqabi member of a European parliament, and in this conversation she shares why this is long overdue. As she explains, struggle is a catalyst in crossing these boundaries, and now is more paramount a time than ever to rise up and be heard. -- Get in touch with us and share your thoughts!
