Iran offers scholarship to European victims of Hijab

An Iranian university has introduced a scholarship to support Muslim women who have been banned from studying in European universities for observing the Islamic Hijab.

The scholarship at Kashan University is named after Marwa el-Sherbini, an Egyptian woman who was killed in Germany in July for wearing a headscarf.

“Kashan University will award the scholarship to women who have been banned from studying in universities, especially in Europe, only for observing Hijab (Islamic dress code),” Seyyed Javad Sadatinejad, the Head of Kashan University told Fars news agency on Wednesday.

The circumstances of the death of el-Sherbini, who was pregnant at the time of her murder, resulted in widespread reactions.
