    But how's it like living in a block of flats? In a block of flats where do you find shops and schools and stuff? It's more like seperate lives, true there are social divides evident in most major cities but not as much so.
    Im talking of the 'gaurds', they are like porters in a block of flats...

    What total crap.

    Islam (misinterpreted) is dangerous – you infect the minds of the young and cause them to blow themselves up in the name of God. How dare you do this!

    You force women to degrade themselves – how dare you do this. Women are the life blood of the human race.

    You use our laws against us for you political gain – you think we are stupid.

    You abuse our social services, and export you wealth to pay for your cause – do you think we do not know this.

    You use the headscarf as way of hiding criminal activity against our security mechanisms – how dare you do this.

    I am sick of this **** – you live in the UK you live like us! If we went to your country you would insist that we do as you do.

    My patience as well as the patience of many other middle class BRITISH people is running out.

    You are intolerant, extreme and offensive – clean up your act.

    If there are any liberal idiots on here – you need to visit India and see the **** running in the streets – value what you have here, and don’t let your sentimental morals get in the way – the british are great, they do the right thing – they tend not to let their population sit in **** on mass. We have respect for property, nature and a peaceful life style – but trust me if you carry on pissing us off we will not stand for it any more.

    This is 2004 not 2000 BC the world has moved on. There are people who do not believe in god there are people that do – we all share the same planet, I offer you the opportunity to share take it before it is too late.

    Your culture should not be protesting – before you complain read this:

    How and why is it srange?!! its only strange to U because u dnt knw wot its about! evry muslim will probably knw why muslim women wear the hijaab. I do not wear the hijaab. But the hijaab's purpose is to cover the womans beauty. Not to go out wearing revealing and tight clothes. muslim women have more respect! they do not degrade themselves for others! i think.... all that bull about how the society respects women nowadays is a loada crap! yes woman have more rights...but if they were respected they would not ave to wear such revealing clothes! JUST to get notcied!! in the freezing cold weather none muslim women go out wearing small reavealing and tight clothes! they are obviously freezing! i find this very strange! its sooo cold why wear such skimpy tops! dnt you think this is strange??!!
    maybe you should respect how other people choose to dress a bit more. How is it any of your business if women were tight clothes? In what way does it imply that they lack self-respect?

    Well I am ok with it as long as it by own free will. It's just a cloth. It's not intimidating or superior.

    However, I also do not believe that it is part of Islam. As a muslim, I am sure you can enlight me as to where in the Quran it says that you should cover your head or hair. I am not interested in hadith as evidence as I consider it irrelavent. It's manmade right? Let's stick to the Quran.

    No offence, I would likea female muslim's viewpoint. I heard the guys and I quite frankly think hijab should be made mandatory for this large group of muslim males seeing as they like it so much. But hey that's my bias towards them. What evidence can you offer, Sana?

    to everyone who is so against muslim women wearing headscarfs/hijab..... what do you think about jewish women who also cover themselves in public by wearing wigs or hats and long clothing...is this also wrong? if not i don't understand why this is any different, its just that jews choose to cover them selves in different ways. and also sikhs....do you have a problem with sikh men who abide by their religion by growing their hair and wearing a turban...is this also problematic? or is it just muslims you have a problem with??

    i'm not religious and so on;t abide to any faith, but i still respect those who do, i don't understand how people seem to think that dressing differently according to your beliefs is a problem.

    it doesnt say in the quran that women cover there heads, but it does say that cover anything that can attract you to a man when outdoors near strangers. In other words your body, hair and face. True muslims cover everything.

    I agree with u here
    There have been many threads on similar topics and I have already said a lot...
    Practice ur religion and try to follow all the commands Allah has sent....Follow the Quran and sunnah....and if u r really a true muslim u will try and cover up the most in order to please Allah and have a big reward on the day of judgement!

    Like I said..lots can be said and has already been said...and this is a very old thread anyway....

    I don't know if Invisible is deliberatley missing the point, but it seems to me that Vienna never said the East should become like the West, just that if you choose to come and live in the West then you should abide by our laws and respect our culture, as would be expected of us if we went to live in the East. She never said the Eastern countries should change. She also never said that liberal, democratic values were superior, only that it is a fact that the West employs these values more than the East.
    The fact that you assumed that she was implying western superiority is the most telling thing in this thread

    I think that if a woman wants to cover herself - let her do it, not really our place to say no. However I do sligtly object to the full covering of a girl (where you can just about see her eyes) in the UK, what is the point? :confused: The whole idea of covering yourself is not to attract attention - dressing in such away attracts a lot more attention in the western world
