Go, Quebec, Go! [A look into the Niqab-Ban]
March 14, 2010 § 1 Comment
Quebec has joined the list of Countries, Provinces & Cities who see ‘Niqab’ as a threat. Yes, ladies & Gentlemen the Niqab – a really simple piece of cloth seems to have people in quite a flurry. God forbid Women wear such a thing and surely they must have forced into it! Not to mention, we simply can’t speak to them when they have that thing on. So guess what? We’re going to ban it. Hah! But wait, we’re still keen on freedom you know? We support Women in their right to wear whatever they want because this is the 21st century…
If you’re thinking great blog post – I absolutely support what she has written so far you need to click on the ‘X’ button on the top right corner of your screen because the above was sarcasm.
Simply put, this is ridiculous and I’m a little surprised that this is coming from Canada. Which I have long looked upon as being at least a little lenient to Muslims compared to other Western Countries but I guess not
The issue of the face-veil has been blown out of proportion by the Media. There is a lack of understanding & the Media did its part in painting the Niqab as ‘evil’ & ‘oppressive’. What we need is interaction between Muslim Women who veil & the Non-Muslim Western public. What we need is a more positive approach to the Niqab by the Media. What we need is understanding.
What I find ironic and hypocritical that these same Countries who preach ‘Women rights’ and Women being allowed to wear what they want are now breaking their own rules, views and laws. At the same time being discriminatory. It’s utterly okay to walk around in a ultra mini-skirt and a tanktop because that is her right – but God Forbid she cover her face.
In the end, I have to say – this is going to do nothing but fuel more Anti-Western views within the Muslim World and cause Muslim Women who cover their faces to be alienated within Quebec Society.
