First Hijab-clad Presenter on Danish TV

COPENHAGEN, March 31, 2006 (IslamOnline.net) – The first hijab-clad talk show presenter has appeared on the Danish television to discuss Danish society's pressing issues topped by the cartoons that lampooned Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

"I'm seeking to project a good image about hijab-clad Muslim women in Denmark," Asmaa Abdol-Hamid told IslamOnline.net Friday, March 31.
Asmaa, 24, appeared for the first time on the small screen on Wednesday, March 29.

The young lady has grown up in Denmark since she was six years old.

"I'm proud to be a Danish Muslim of Palestinian origin," said Asmaa, who is doing an MA in sociology.Asmaa believes that her hijab will be the talk of the audience at the very beginning.
"But I'm confident that with the passage of time they would come to realize my distinct personality and presentation."
