If you've been on BYU campus the last few weeks, you may have noticed a number of students wearing hijabs. One student, Sondra Sasser, says, "We have a lot in common with our Muslim brothers and sisters," and she and other students have found a way to reach out to them and show love and support:

A group of BYU students is turning heads on campus by wearing traditional hijabs.

For the last three Wednesdays, Sondra Sasser and 11 other students have added the garment to their wardrobe to show support for Utah's Muslim community.

‪"A lot of Muslims are feeling uncomfortable about things ... feeling scared about things or just misunderstood, and so any show of solidarity I think can be touching," Sasser said.‬
