Blog surfaces to counter Juan Williams's notions of 'Muslim garb'
A Tumblr blog surfaced today with a short and simple message: "I will post pictures of Muslims wearing all sorts of things in an attempt to refute that there is such a thing as 'Muslim garb' or a Muslim look."
In a response to fired NPR analyst Juan Williams's comments on a Fox News show, the Tumblr blog "Pictures of Muslims Wearing Things" posts photos of famous Muslims, from Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens) to Shahrukh Khan, and describes their outfits.
"Dave Chappelle is Muslim. He is wearing ruffles and polyester," one entry reads. Another says: "This is Pai Hsien-Yung. He comes from a Muslim background, and was influenced by Mister Rogers' cardigans from a young age."
Not only does it provide fashion advice, but it also offers up an impressive list of famous Muslims, from actor Aasif Mandvi to the model Iman.
