Que. Woman In Hijab Controversy Rejects Crowdfunding Money, Rania El-Alloul, the Montreal woman who was asked by a judge to remove her hijab, says the $52,000 donation could be put to better use.,Que. woman in hijab controversy rejects crowdfunding money “, A Quebec woman who was refused her day in court because she was wearing a hijab has said no thanks to more than $50,000 raised on her behalf through a crowdfunding campaign.

The money collected on the gofundme website was to be used to help Rania El-Alloul buy a car.

As of midday Friday, the campaign had raised more than $52,000 in donations from 1,000-plus people over 14 days.

The drive was in response to a judge’s refusal on Feb. 24 to hear her case against Quebec’s automobile insurance board, which had seized her vehicle.

El-Alloul said in a letter on the website that while she appreciates the financial support offered by the “generous and warm-hearted campaign,” she can’t accept the gift.

“The awareness raised by this campaign has brought us people from all over, who have offered support to carry this issue forward,” El-Alloul wrote.

“As a result, I believe that these funds can be put to better use helping those whose rights have been forfeited and stories left untold.”
