The story of preventing a veiled girl from entering a public place in Egypt to attend a meeting with a group of her colleagues – due to wearing the abaya – sparked outrage on the communication platforms, amid accusations of racism, and demands to close the place.
The young woman who called for the meeting, Dina Hashish, published the story on her Facebook account, where she said that she and her team of 5 girls – working on content production – decided to hold a business meeting outside the office.

She explained that she went to clarify the matter with the director of the place, in order to allow them to complete the meeting within the next hour, but he refused, on the pretext that the place is monitored by cameras and not allowed to enter wearing gowns, niqab and light shoes (slippers).
Dina indicated that they left the place immediately, noting that the problem with the clothes by the place is not understood by her at all, stressing that they need to solve their problems and accept others.
The media, Alaa Omar, commented – in a post on her Facebook – saying, “We count God and yes, the agent, many people in our country will not (they will not stop) provocative rulings and injustice to each one because of her dress, and we would prefer (we will continue) to evaluate this by wearing or not wearing what, not with talent. nor our capabilities at all…
Blogger Shaima El-Gamal said in another post, “A strong (very) strong defect. We remain in 2021 and still distinguish people by wearing it, and then you do not want to enter the one who wears an abaya or red jeans, do not write a sign at the door that is the weakest of faith, and it is not acceptable.”
She added, “People do not keep eating and standing them up, and they disrespect them. The height of disrespect and I will not reprimand (I will not enter) this place again, even though I was a customer and I (loved) die in their seat and eat them.”
