Mogadishu and hijab

Ok I’m planning going to Mogadishu next summer with my mom, I do not personally wear the hijab I have a question to the ladies what would happen to me if I do not wear the hijab. I do dress modest without the hijab part.

It’s impossible to go around Mogadishu without a hijab they’ll start problems with you. Main concern would be because of Al shabaab there’s a lot of members who live normal lives but people will never know that they’re apart of shabaab that’s why people take precautions there.

when you’re in the airplane from a western country to Mogadishu you will see women going into the bathrooms on the plane 1/2 hours before landing to cover themselves up before landing because they know the problems they’ll face. You got no choice tbh

even the cadaans in Somalia wear a loose scarf for a hijab let alone a visibly somali women. You’ll get harassed.

Especially in Mogadishu you’re even expected to wear a niqaab. Al-shabaab presence is still there.

Backwards people imo. Even the children are being raised with radical mentality.

Don't do it . here is a direct quote from the USA state department.

"Terrorists continue to plot kidnappings, bombings, and other attacks in Somalia. They may conduct attacks with little or no warning, targeting airports and seaports, government buildings, hotels, restaurants, shopping areas, and other areas where large crowds gather and Westerners frequent, as well as government, military, and Western convoys. Methods of attack can include car bombs, suicide bombers, individual attackers, and mortar fire, among others"
