Hijab has been a “hot” issue for past two decades. It can also be called as one of the top misunderstood concept of the world. Ironically though, this subject is so simple to understand that even my 3 year old can give the most logical reasons for it.
With several western politicians coming out openly in denouncing the concept of Hijab, there is even more staunch response from the Muslims. Little do these politicians know that the more they push Muslim women to drop their veils, the more they would get staunch in following it. All this “NO Hijab” shouting show how desperate these politicians are to look at others mothers, wives and daughters. (Let their respective wives take a note of this 🙂 )
Without going into details, lets check this little coincidence.
Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to a joint session of parliament in Versailles, announced that he is on the side of those who prohibit the use of Hijab. He pretended to speak for woman’s rights and declared himself to be against individual freedom. (This was the first such speech by a french president in 136 years).
He said “In our country, we cannot accept that women be prisoners behind a screen, cut off from all social life, deprived of all identity,” he said to rolling applause. “The burqa is not a religious sign, it’s a sign of subservience, a sign of debasement – I want to say it solemnly: It will not be welcome on the territory of the French Republic.”
He further said He said: “The problem of the burka is not a religious problem, it’s a problem of liberty and woman’s dignity. It’s not a religious symbol, but a sign of subservience and debasement. I want to say solemnly, the burka is not welcome in France. In our country, we can’t accept women prisoners behind a screen, cut off from all social life, deprived of all identity. That’s not our idea of freedom.”
And guess what, 50 more politicians backed him up, giving applause on his words! Wolah!! So now we know that french politicians are as dumb as their other western counterparts, who don’t know how to implement the secular laws of their country. The Secular law of France quotes that every individual has the right to freedom. So what if a woman wants to do Hijab only because God commanded her to do so? Are you going to arrest her too?? If so then where is the right to freedom in France???
Someone might say “No woman wants to be in Hijab”. Thats because you ask the wrong women. Imagine, people asking a woman who poses in Bikini for advertisement, what she feels about Hijab! This is just like, you approach a farmer and ask him what he feels about the Mesothelioma! 🙂
Its time that these people grow up and begin asking those who really want to do Hijab. But hey hold on! Can we please ask those who really want to do Hijab and not those who are forced into it???
Sarkozy has surely put a Ban on Islamic Veil in France. But will he be fair enough in putting a Ban on Swine flu Veil as well??? 🙂
