The Anonymous Widower

The Football Fan In A Hijab

The BBC web site has this article, which talks about fifteen-year-old Amina Qureshi supporting Bradford in a hijab.

I actually don’t think this is as rare as the article makes out.  When I saw Ipswich win at Bolton, I came across a small group of Asian girls supporting, some of whom were similarly attired.

I seem to remember too, a young girl in a hijab, with her father, who was wearing fairly traditional clothes for a Muslim man at Leyton Orient, which has more than a few Muslim supporters.
