"Since this is a mentality a lot of you seem to have," Lamyaa had said in her tweet.
"Sweetheart, that's not my decision to make. That's no man's decision to make," he told her. "If it's what you feel like you want to do, go ahead. I'll support you no matter what," he added.
She had even tweeted saying that she wasn't actually planning to remove her hijab.
Many people have commented on Lamyaa's tweet. While several have praised her dad, some have also pointed out that not all women have the same support system as Lamyaa does.
Agreeing with some of those comments, she later clarified her reason for posting about the conversation with her dad:
