Mehwish Hayat got the pride of performance in Norway earlier this month as one of the most sought-after actors in our nation. This was accompanied by numerous appearances on different global channels where she talked about how Islamophobia is fuelled by the world of cinema. In the meantime, the Chhalawa actress has also been named the Muslim Islamic Charity Brand Ambassador, Penny Appeal.
The great news is that Mehwish Hayat has now become the world’s top five Muslim females in ” The Muslim Vibe “, who strive to create the world a better place to live in.
“I am so honoured to be chosen by the international magazine, The Muslim Vibe, as one of the top five Muslim women in the world who are breaking stereotypes and changing the world,”
In her Twitter handle, Mehwish wrote.
“To be thought of in the same breath as women I look up to is humbling.”
This list was published on Women’s Equality Day 2019, which is being observed around the globe on August 26.
Besides Mehwish, there is also an Egyptian athlete, Manal Rostom, who is also the founder of the Online Surviving Community of Hijab and Ilhan Omar, the first Somali American to be elected from Minnesota. The list is composed by the United States House of Representatives and is the first Somali woman of colour. It also features Linda Sarsour, an American political activist and American sabre fencer, and Ibtihaj Muhammad.
Muslim Vibe is a news platform with a non-profit goal of inspiring, information and empowering Muslims and providing the young generation with spacious room to know about their faith.
