The Muslim Student Association at Fresno State hosted a Hijab Challenge on Wednesday to offer non-Muslim students a taste of what it’s like to wear a head scarf during a time of nationwide anti-Islam sentiment. Students said the goal is to educate people about why they wear the hijab and kufi, and to show that head coverings are worn in many different faiths, including Catholicism and Sikhism. acastillo@fresnobee.com
