Muslims can sometimes be prejudiced against Hijab

I was brought up secularly by Muslims, and the secular Muslim environment I grew up in did not like the Hijab one bit.  I remember as children, we used to run away from women on the street who were wearing Niqab (which was not common at all at the time).  Also, when I was a child, we had a man who looked like Clark Kent of Superman TV series.  Whenever he would pass the street every morning as we waited for the bus, we would scream: there goes Nabil Fawzi (the Arabic name for Clark Kent).
