Excerpt:

People in Regina tried on a piece of Muslim culture on Sunday at the Southland Mall.

People experienced what it's like to wear a hijab – a head covering that represents modesty, harmony and respect.

The event was in conjunction with World Hijab Day and was hosted by the Islamic Circle of North America Sisters Regina. Shoppers also had the opportunity to ask questions and learn about the culture.
