Egyptian belly dancer Fifi Abdo announced that she will not
allow the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt to force her into wearing the hijab
(Islamic headdress) if they came into power. She stressed that she will only
wear the hijab if she is personally convinced and ready for it.

According to the internet website MBC.net, Fifi stated that
she is a devoted Muslim at heart and also strives to do good deeds. She added
that if the day comes and she wears the hijab then it would be based on her own
desire to do so and not because someone forced her into it.
