Ghada denies wearing the hijab
Egyptian actress Ghada Abd Al Raziq denied rumors that she has worn the Islamic headdress Hijab after a photo of her wearing the hijab and reading the holy Quran was circulated over the internet. Once the photo was circulated, Ghada denied wearing the hijab and quitting her acting career and stated that the photo was taken from a scene in her latest film “Riklam”.
Ghada said that she plays the role of Shadia in the film, who after encountering so many hardships she turns to God and decides to wear the hijab and read the holy Quran hoping to find salvation. The film is scheduled to be screened in the very near future.
This is not the first time the rumor of Ghada wearing the hijab and resigning spreads. Previously the same rumor began circulating after Ghada went on the religious pilgrimage Umra. The rumor was intensified when Ghada had refused to star in a film for director Hani Jarjees due to the fact that it contained a number of intimate and seductive scenes.
Ghada stressed that the matter of wearing the hijab is between a person and God and no one has the right to interfere regardless who they are.
