My Research Paper: Reviews

Posted: September 6, 2014 in Uncategorised

Sr Yvonne Ridley, British journalist.

I will defend a woman’s right to be free to choose what she wants to wear and this is real empowerment for women.

 However in the West there seems to be confusion over the issue of religious dress in as much as the more a woman chooses the wear the more oppressed and subjigated she must be. This could not be further from the truth.
 And if a Christian, Jewish or Muslim woman chooses to wear a full face veil because she feels closer to God then why should she be punished or ridiculed for her piety?
 Sadly politicians, in particular senior male politicians from prime ministers to presidents have chosen to make women’s clothing a political issue which has prompted me to tell all men of faith and no faith: “Get out of our wardrobes!”
 I welcome this research from Juwairiyah Faisal as it helps further explore the empowerment of religious women through their clothing. Anything which contributes positively towards the debate is to be welcomed and encouraged in the hope of promoting greater tolerance and understanding.
 In conclusion a veil should not be regarded as a symbol of oppression but one of liberation for the person who chooses to wear it.

Dear daughter! Excellent write up. JazakiLLAH for it. I suggest some thing more should be included. The converted Muslim women’s point of view about hijab and modesty . One more poem of Iqbal in Javed nama, khilafat e Adam – Mohkamat e Aalam e Quraani! First and last verses are about hijab and women’s privacy ! Stay blessed dear!

    What has West achieved by abandoning modesty that has its seeds in revealed religions like Judaism, Christianity but not with so much emphasis as in Islam? Western woman has been denied the much desired empowerment?
