An interesting, if rather disturbing outbreak of "art jihad" has been noted on the chic boulevards of Paris, where an anonymous “guerrilla street artist” has taken to spray-painting black veils and body-length chadors over images of the sexily dressed models who grace billboards advertising luxury beauty items, high fashion or music. Armed with spray paint and a black marker pen, Princess Hijab (PH) is on a mission to “hijabize” advertising. reports muxlim.com. She claims it is “subverting visuals,” a “noble cause” and “anti-advertising.” So top marks for censorship – but you have to give the girl a little credit for being original though Faith Central does feel she went a little too far hijabizing a picture of a dancing Cinderella. Worrying. Very worrying.
