    restricted attitude

    Some people have restrickted attitude towards Muslims. According to their mentality all Muslims women should wear Islamic dress and they won't go jogging. I noticed whenever, I go jogging they astonishingly look at me and my sports outfit.

    Could you please fix my sentence. Thank you so much.

    I wouldn't say a "restricted attitude". It's not their attitude that's restricted surely. It's more that they think that Muslim women should be restricted in what the can do and wear, isn't it? (Note: not personal opinion, just trying to get to the bottom of what the OP is trying to say).

    I would say:

    Some people have a very narrow-minded (or blinkered) opinion towards Muslims. As far as they're concerned, all Muslim women should wear traditional Islamic clothing and they shouldn't go jogging. I have noticed that whenever I go jogging, people look at me and my sports clothing in amazement!
