"I have heard about people wearing ethnic costumes but it is totally offensive that someone would want to dress up as an ISIS member. She was equating ISIS with me- a Muslim woman."

Dressing up for Halloween can involve some creativity. Adults and children alike can get quite carried away trying to outdo each other in sporting the most original costume. But when the creativity crosses the bounds of tolerance and sensitivity then it can become a total fail. Walmart had to withdraw a “Pashtun Papa” Halloween costume from their stores. The outfit consisted of the traditional South Asian “shalwar and kameez” which went along with a vest, a cap, and a shaggy grey beard. "Whether you're making a serious political statement or staging a political parody," said the online description, "this authentic-looking outfit is sure to fit the bill!"
"Nothing is sacred this Halloween. Shock your friends with this Islamic costume," the description further elaborated.
