Teen Texts Dad About Removing Her Hijab. His Reply Is Winning Twitter

Several people have commented on Lamyaa's tweet.

NEW DELHI:  A 17-year-old's moving conversation with her father about removing her hijab has gone viral across social media. Pennsylvania resident Lamyaa Alshehri was prompted to talk to her dad about her hijab after someone texted her saying her father would get mad at her if she took it off. Lamyaa decided to text her father and later shared his response on Twitter on April 15. Even though she has since made her Twitter account private, her dad's reply to her is winning Twitter. Her tweet had received over 3.2 lakh 'likes' and more than 1.4 lakh retweets until last evening.

"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:
