It was refreshing experience to see so many Indian youths interested about things like Civilization and Culture and do know a lot about the field. Since this forum has lot of such posters, I would like to know about this. In world, only two societies in modern times seem to use veils for covering faces-Islamic and Indian( North) . Ofcourse, this is interesting to know how this thing appeared among Indians. Usual reaction is Islamic influence but Islamic influence did not cause 1. Change in scripts of Hindus 2. Change in languages and even vocabulary. 3. Change in devotion towards Gods and idol worship So how come Hindus who preserved their religion, languages, scripts etc. adopted veils from Muslims? Also, Rajasthan was ruled by Muslims much less than North Karanataka and Telangana yet I see veils in Rajasthan but none in South. Looking forward to answers from you all as to how Indian women started this Thanks in advance.
