    Tzniut is a term used within Judaism and it plays a role in Orthodox Judaism. It is used to describe both the character trait of modesty and humility, as well as a group of Jewish religious laws pertaining to conduct in general and especially between the sexes.

    The singing voice of a woman is referred to as "ervah" in the Talmud, which literally means "naked," but is best understood as that which is not meant for public consumption.

    The legend of the sirens in Greek mythology is possibly an example of the seductive nature with which a woman's voice.

    But we live in a modern world and so these ideas of Orthodox behaviour that was fine in the ancient time is passé in today's context.

    Ulysses was a shrewd commander, getting to hear the Siren's song but preventing his men from hearing it.

    One has to note the evolution of the Abrahamic religions to realise that there is a whole lot of similarities.

    Some of the Abrahamic religions have evolved to embrace the times, while the others have not!

    One thing you may have noticed is that religious extremism has risen in all 3 cases when state and religion were combined and it reduced when state and religion were separated.

    Do you think the Turks will ever undo what Kemal Ataturk did?
