Singaporean Women's Support for Palestine

1 comment


A keffiyeh, also known as a kufiya, ghutra or shemagh, is a traditional Middle Eastern headdress that is typically worn by men in the Arab world, particularly in countries like Palestine, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. It consists of a large square piece of cloth, usually made from cotton, that is folded into a triangle and then draped over the head and shoulders.

The keffiyeh serves various purposes and can be worn in different styles. It provides protection from the sun and can help keep the wearer cool in hot, arid climates.

The distinctive pattern of the keffiyeh, often black and white, is a symbol of cultural identity and has become a symbol associated with the Palestinian struggle for self-determination and the broader Arab identity. However, it's important to note that the keffiyeh is a traditional and cultural garment with a rich history that goes beyond its modern political symbolism.

In an inspiring display of solidarity with the people of Palestine, a unique fashion trend has emerged in Singapore, blending cultural elements in a symbol of support. Singaporean ladies have found a meaningful way to express their support for Palestinians by adopting the "ghutra hijab."

In a beautiful fusion of cultures, Singaporean women have embraced the ghutra and adapted it as a hijab, a headscarf worn by Muslim women as part of their modest dress code. This creative fusion allows Singaporean women to express their empathy, solidarity, and support for the Palestinian people. It signifies a powerful message of unity and understanding that transcends borders and cultures.

The ghutra hijab has not only become a fashion statement but also a symbol of shared humanity. By wearing this unique blend of Palestinian and Singaporean cultures, Singaporean women can show their support for the Palestinian cause while also promoting cross-cultural understanding and solidarity in their own community.

It serves as a powerful reminder that, despite geographical differences, cultural diversity, and unique identities, people from all around the world can come together to support a just and peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflicts in Palestine.
