The writing is in farsi and it reads:
Mr.Hempher, a British Spy, writes:
“Women with firm hejab are those that stay true to their hejab regardless of corruption. With every means possible we should stray the Muslim women from this type of Islamic hejab and introduce the non-hejab culture primarily to fool them to put the hejab aside. We should make them understand that hejab in terms of chador and abaya are irrelevant to Islam.”
My take: the white hand= Netanyahu (with the Israeli flag ring) and black hands Obama with the American flag rings. The companies on the shirts are meant to depict websites and media that promote a war against hejab, backing the actions of US and Israel either by what they show or do that can cause corruption in the wearing of hejab. Notice that the Muslimah is still covered, despite the chador being pulled off by the hands, but her clothes have vibrant colors and have lost the simplicity of the chador (with the flower ornaments) that attract attention. So like the quote says “We should make them understand that hejab in terms of chador and abaya are irrelevant to Islamic hejab” basically they are manipulating the meaning of what hejab is and making us believe it.

interested to read the resulting discussion and yall's take on this art:
You may feel disturbed, or have great admiration for this "piece of art". It just depends on your interpretation. Let's hear it!
I'll include mine later.
Yeah I see what you mean. My take: the girl on the very right is "liberating" the lady with the abaya from the "oppression" of her hejab, the middle girl is helping her.
pretty disgusting, i'll make sure to add this artist on the same list as shirin neshat
