Accra – A young gallant lady, Munira Jibril who joined scores of other Muslim women and girls to embark on a Hijab solidarity walk held on Saturday has passed on.

Though it remains unclear as to the exact cause of death, lots of glowing tributes have been pouring in for the young lady.

The 2.9 Kilometres walk which was replicated across other regional capitals of Kumasi and Tamale sought to advocate and create awareness on the rights of Muslim women to freely observe the hijab which is a religiously prescribed way of dressing.

The event sanctioned by the Muslim Caucus of Parliament, the Office of the National Chief Imam and the National Council of Zango Chiefs formed part of coordinated activities to curb the growing incidences of harassment and discrimination against young hijab-wearing Muslim women in the country.

Abdul Rahman Naa Niche, the photographer who took the photo of the deceased during the walk said he noticed something strange and decided to capture her.

He said she looked focused as if she had a mission to accomplish before she finally departs from this world.

He wrote on his Facebook timeline, “On Saturday, Munira Jibril joined us for the peace Hijab march. It was my first time meeting her. I noticed she was very quiet and hardly said anything.

While her other friends,  asked for a picture, I noticed she was not even bothered. So I decided to capture her just to spite her friends who I had jokingly denied a picture.

The message continued: ” Munira took part in a worthy cause. Her last in this world. When we finally end the discrimination against Hijab, I will remember Munira, whose silence was loud enough to drive home a message.
The message on her placard meerrhhhnnnn. May Allah accept your gentle soul and grant you Jannatul Firdaus without Hisab. Munira, you died a gallant soldier and a martyr. Gone but forever in our hearts.”
