Free weekend giveaway in Minneapolis: hijabs
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Visitors to downtown Minneapolis this weekend can pick up an interesting freebie: a hijab.
A young women's Muslim group, along with volunteers from other faiths, plan to hand out hundreds of the traditional head coverings Saturday afternoon along Nicollet Mall.
They say the hijab is an often misunderstood part of Islam, and their effort is intended to unite people of different faiths and cultures.
