Gravitas Plus: Women, Hijab & Choice

  1. I think each religion has its beliefs, and we cannot speak on behalf of another. If the Hijab is a problem for India, then I as South African have a problem with the Caste system.

  2. Atatürk? i thought it was much more recent, and i was right, "Atatürk never forbade the headscarf, but actively discouraged its use in public venues. The headscarf was banned in public institutions because of the 'public clothing regulation' issued after the 1980 coup and began to be implemented in a radical way after the 1997 military memorandum."

  3. The Qur'an clearly mentions "la ikraha fiddin" (There is no compulsion in religion)

    You can't enforce hijab on anyone; it HAS to be a woman's choice or else it will be a form of compulsion. One can only inform about the importance in Islam of wearing it but at the end of the day, it is the girl who makes the choice. It is up to her and her Lord.

  4. The women in Europe who wear Hijab because its their 'choice' are inadvertently giving support to the oppression of women in nations where it is not a choice, e.g. Iran. That's why, I cannot respect these hijabi women.

  5. The followers of all this oraganized religion a just first class hypocrites… They have to defend their hypocrisy coz they have to submit to their man made GOD….
