    There's a female in my college who wears the full body veil.
    I do not converse with her and I do not wish to. As I can't see her face I cannot converse with her.

    I have no idea how she got into the college. I don't know how she got an ID card.

    How do women who wear the full body veils get jobs and have friends?

    The ID card point is interesting, most colleges/unis have ID cards with a photo on the front - I assume such people remove their veil for that photo? :confused:

    I had a girl like that at my college but her face was on the id card so i assume that she showed her face during enrollment but decided to cover up when college actually started. They don't have jobs because in their culture, it's common for them to be a housewife so their friends would be other mums but in some cases, they don't have friends. The ones that might have a job are the ones who are mosque teachers or something

    It's very difficult to wear a veil and go to college/work
    As you'll be taking it off for ID and exams which defeats the purpose,
    Not very many people wear it in today's day and age
    And the ones that do wear it are usually older, with very religious backgrounds and have been socialised from a young age to wear it.

    That sounds strange.

    Maybe she's ugly and doesn't wish to show her face?

    At my college the Muslim females didn't wear the full body veil, they just wore the headscarf, but still tended to only hang around in groups of other Muslim girls wearing the same.

    It may be difficult but those who want to wear it put up with the difficulties, and not many wear it because the face veil is a choice

    I make friends by walking up to the person and asking them if they like the same things I like. If they do not have anything in common with me I move on.

    I'm not talking about the headscarf, you can see the face.

    So why couldn't you do that with somebody wearing a full body veil?

    This is full of ignorant people.
    I have a friend who wears the niqab. She is currently studying here. She doesn't wear it on placement as she is studying medicine.
    However she has considered working abroad instead in a muslim country like saudi, dubai or malaysia because there they will accept her in niqab whereas here they make a big fuss about it for no reason.

    She is also THE NICEST PERSON I KNOW
