Answer Dear Sister,
It is not the women of India or Pakistan who wear Hijab in public but I find the said practice in many countries where a section of women has made it a style to wear Hijab in public. In your case it is different as you are reverted to Islam and it is really a matter rejoice that you wear Hijab in public for fear of ALLAH. You can appear before the public without covering your face and wrists of both the hands and there is no difficulty if you are in that state in front of na-mahram of the male in laws of the family. But please don't discontinue wearing Hijab. Though it is a major sin but such sin(s) will be certainly forgiven by Allah if you Pray to HIM sincerely from the bottom of your heart. ALLAH likes to forgive HIS servants.
