'One Million Hijabs for Shaima:' Women worldwide of all faiths post pictures of themselves in headscarves after race hate murder
Muslim mother-of-five found in pool of blood in her home last month
One million women to show support for Alawadi by wearing traditional Islamic headscarf
Police have yet to identify or apprehend suspect in connection with killing
One million women worldwide will show their support for a brutally murdered Iraqi immigrant by posting pictures of themselves wearing hijab headscarves as part of a global campaign.
Muslim mother-of-five Shaima Alawadi was found beaten and unconscious in her San Diego home last month in an apparent killing which officials described as a 'hate crime'.
Now as a show of solidarity towards the female Islamic community, one million women - many of whom are non-Muslim - have posted photos of themselves wearing the traditional headscarf.
Alawadi's husband had made an emotional plea to catch her 'racist' killer, after she was found in a pool of blood next to a note which read, 'go back to your country, you terrorist'.
On a Facebook group created for 'One Million Hijabs', women have also sent their messages of support while posting their photos.
