Sesame Street unveiled a fresh face Thursday: a hijab-wearing Afghani Muppet named Zari who will teach kids about “girl empowerment, social and emotional wellbeing.”

Zari will first appear in season five of Baghch-e-Simsim, which is the Afghan version of Sesame Street.

The popular children show’s Twitter account was abuzz with Zari content Thursday.

“Sesame Street has done more to educate and entertain than any other children’s program in Afghanistan,” said Saad Mohseni, the president of the MOBY group, which airs numerous TV programs for Afghani children. “We are especially delighted about the introduction of Zari to Baghch-e-Simsim, which reflects Sesame’s commitment to the country and the show’s positive impact here.”

Zara will focus on teaching “girls’ empowerment, national identity, physical health and social and emotional wellbeing,” a Sesame Street press release said.

  3. Actually, this Muppet, portrayed by Sesame Street, is not sharia compliant at all. She isn’t a representation of a properly covered female and I don’t expect those who run Sesame Street realize it or not, they will likely offend a great number of practicing Muslims. Proper covering involves no hair showing. Are they aware of this faux pas? They’ll find out soon enough, I’m sure. These people are about as ignorant as they come.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
