A Muslim girl has caused serious outrage on social media after she was caught twerking in public while wearing her hijab, as people cheered her on.
The Sun UK reported that the 17-year-old was out shopping with pals when she and a friend joined a street performer and began dancing.
Footage of her dancing was later uploaded online, and it attracted a barrage of hateful comments. One wrote: “That’s so disrespectful is you are wearing hijab you are representing Islam respect dignity so how to act like a fool that is a big disrespect.”

She later gave an emotional interview to Muslim YouTube star Ali Dawah. The teenager, who has not been named, told him during a phone interview: “To all the girls that wear hijab and wear abayah, I’m sorry for disrespecting it. I’ve learnt from my mistake. It’s gone viral and I’m just hurt, I just want everybody to leave it alone and keep everything away, I don’t want it to be how it was and I am not going to do anything like that again. I am sorry for disrespecting it and thank you to all of you that helped, it’s up to Allah to judge, at the end of the day I will be judged for it, not you guys.”
