People who are criticizing the Mipsterz (Muslim Hipsters) video, titled “Somewhere in America,"(which has been removed now, clean version is out LOL) have some points. When you will mix religion and nationality this will happened.
The reason for criticizing is actually very simple: at on hand Muslim says hijab is compulsory, your beauty is only for your husband, you are pearl, without scarf you are like an unwrapped chocolate bar on which any filthy fly can hover, be modest, because modesty is your beauty, hijab is not only a scarf with conceal your self, some even go to extreme that they hide their face and eyes, wear gloves, and so on, and now this video where Muslim women are taking selfies, riding skateboards, hanging out, talking, laughing , in some very fashionable urban unique style of clothing in New York city, telling the world " we do whatever we wanna do" or "Hijabis can have fun too." 'We are American Muslims. ' ' We are American Muslim Hipster.'
So yeah it is big fat contradiction and shock for many.
First stick out like a sore thumb, then defend yourself with song like twerk Miley, twrek.
Weather one like it or not, there is a big debate on us v/s them. (I hope you get it, what I am trying to get at) This is a big question. They felt this need to tell they are like normal (which they are) but they have this feeling they are not. That is why this video came out. That is why Mipters Facebook page says" Wait, they hate us cuz we're Muslims? I thought they hated us cuz we were hipsters!?"
The aim of this organization is to prove the Americans that Muslim are also cool (like they are not)
I know somewhere in America, some people go through identify crisis. They go through a lot that they need song like : Twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk Twerk, Miley, Miley, twerk...................to prove themselves they are also normal peeps, which is quite sad.
( Mind it, somewhere in America, people also criticized Milly so harshly for twerkin')
