The City Government of Isabela de Basilan through its City Information Office successfully conducted the pilot episode of its Usapang Babae at Iba Pa Season 3 on February 2 via 97.5 DXNO Radyo Komunidad.
Councilor Karel Annjaiza R. Sakkalahul tackled the definition of hijab and the essence and rules of wearing it based on the Holy Quran. She also shared her dilemma during her college days as she experienced discrimination while wearing hijab. As a City Councilor she plans to conduct advocacy campaigns, draft a resolution/ordinance and hold a symposium to promote the celebration of World Hijab Day every first day of February.
Thank you so much Councilor Karrel for sharing us your knowledge and experience to make this episode a successful one. May all of us understand the true value of wearing hijab.
