    Behind the veil

    EDUCATED MUSLIM WOMEN IN MUMBAI ARE FORSAKING JEANS AND TEES FOR BURQAS OR HIJABS. THEY TELL REENA MARTINS THAT COVERING UP IS EMANCIPATING

    Behind the veil

    Some extracts:

    1. Why are once chic, modern Muslim women who were hep, discarding their hip lifestyle for a this conservative dress code?

    2. Does the hijab really empowers a woman as the woman says? If so, how?

    3. Why are more and more educated young Muslim women, who were once comfortable in jeans and tees, are becoming hijabis — women who wear scarves or clothing that put a veil between man and woman, when the mothers did not wear the same?



    1. How does the hijab make a young girl 'safer'? Haven't burqa clad, let alone a hijab clad women, been raped?

    2. Or are all these 'justifications' being given as a reaction to the Mumbai riots?



    Is this Born Again Muslim attitude the effect of the influence that the Wahhabis are exerting all around the Islamic society all over the world?



    1. How is that a Hindu woman who converted to Islam is more fervent about Islamic dress code and imposing the same on her near and dear ones?

    2. Is she justified to only treat women in her clinic and not men? Is she doing justice to society where there is dearth of medical practitioner, just to be more 'holier than thou'?



    Would this Born Again Muslim attitude lead to 'religious stereotyping?

    People are just becoming religious. Coming closer towards the fundamentals of Islam.

    And what is morally wrong in becoming hijabis from wearing Jeans if it is by choice?

    When people are blinded by religious beliefs, its all too common to be self righteous. Its a happy one way slippery slope.

    There is nothing wrong if it is a choice made without any pressure.

    Well, even with us Bohras, the girls wear what they want till a certain age and then for any occasion or going to mosque for any function or community event wear the Burkha, we call it Rida. some even wear it otherwise and do it out of free will. It costs a lot of money!!

    This picture looks to be from mass marriages that are held every year in Mumbai.

    Women are required to cover themselves as per Shariat. Some follow, some don't. Some follow partially.
