    I am a muslim and I am totally convinced and I do approve everything written by mev2.
    well don't u think that anyone is free to wear whatever he likes, muslims r commanded to wear the Hijab , no body forces them to wear it, it is between them and their lord, so leave them., for those who r saying that parents r forcing them, well it is ok if they want to teach them something and if they r not convinced they can leave wearing the Hijab (scarf) after being 18 years old.

    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??!!
    muslim women have more respect?.. its oppression and nothing else. i wear skimpy clothes because i want to and am free to make that choice. if i get cold thats my problem.

    yes, but if a muslim woman wants to wear a scarf as she wants to follow her religion, then whats wrong with that?

    As long as she wants to do it, then thats ok.

    Firstly the matter of dress. A Muslim woman may wear whatever she pleases in the presence of her husband and family or among women friends. But when she goes out or when men other than her husband or close family are present she is expected to wear a dress which will cover all parts of her body, and which should not reveal the figure. What a contrast with Western fashions which every year concentrate quite intentionally on exposing yet another erogenous zone to the public gaze! In the past few years we have seen the rise and fall of the minidress, the micro-skirt, the wet look, hot pants, the see-thru', the topless and other garments designed to display or emphasize the intimate parts of a woman's body. One may observe a similar tendency of late in men's dress which has become almost skin-tight, although here the men's fashion designers appear to have come to a temporary standstill until men are liberated enough to accept topless or see-thru' trousers, which is fortunately not yet the case.
    cut it with the fashion critique. non-muslim women are free to wear what they like. muslim women are not. the practicalities of it are irrelevant.

    nothing. but it has wider implications..the same religion is incompatible with western, liberal democratic values.

    so what?

    Western values etc are not compatible with eastern ones. you make it sound as if the east are inferior to the west and therefore should follow western tradition.

    U are totally wrong, this religion (Islam) is compatible with every situation because it's not only a spiritual thing, it is a whole way of life, a complete ( in other words "course")
