ummtaalib Posted November 25, 2014 Report Share Posted November 25, 2014 The Veil of the Muslim Woman Generalizations about Islam and Muslims are replete in today's media and the subject of the veil of the Muslim woman is no exception. Veiled Muslim women are frequently unfairly stigmatized. They are regarded on the one hand as oppressed, and on the other, as fanatics and fundamentalists. Inflammatory slogans and statements for banning the veil are commonplace in the media. Islam coerces females into wearing head scarves, veils, niqabs, and burqas, for women are deemed responsible for men’s sexual restraint. Islam requires all women to dress like zombies! Veil and headscarf make women invisible, transform women to zombies, invalidate women's participatory rights, flag women as evil temptresses, oppress women with barbarity, are brands of misogynist Islam, and are a security threat. Are Muslim women who wear the veil fanatics and fundamentalists? Is it only Islam which teaches women to cover? What do other religions say about it? Is wearing hijaab a sign of oppression, humiliation and discrimination? Or is it a sign of piety, modesty and honour? Are Muslim women forced to wear them? What do Muslim women themselves have to say? InshaAllah we will compile a series of posts with the answers... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
