Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Having lived with lovely hijab-wearing women in the last few weeks has really opened my eyes to its attractiveness and understanding of it. As long as one wears a niqab as a personal choice, it's a lovely way to proclaim one's faith and belief. As soon as it becomes forced, it loses its attractiveness and personal identity.

I asked these very tolerant and open-minded Egyptian women about their views on niqabs. They replied as long as it was a personal choice, they will respect the women who wear the although they don't always understand why anyone would want to. However, as soon as niqabs are forced upon women, then the problem lies not with the piece of clothing but with relationship between the husband and wife or with the society in which they live.

The difference between hijabs, niqabs, burkas, etc. http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/24118241
