asalaamu alaikum wr wb…
Please keep your French sisters in your doa’at. Its truly unfair and far from anything resembling “liberty, fraternity, egaliterianism” and whatever else the French state thinks it propagates. Whats more anti-liberty than not allowing someone to wear what they want to wear?
I honestly didn’t know the ban was in effect until recently but apparently the first day was April 11th. I just don’t think it’ll last long because frankly…the more it is enforced, the more women will stick to their niqabs based on personal principle and conviction! Thats how it goes, how human psychology works…”if you dare to imped upon my personal beliefs, then dangit all to you, I’ll stick with them even more intensely.” You know like the siege mentality.
I think this whole ban really boils down to quite simply male chavinism and bigotry! yup…Male Chauvinism at work…women = meat! but…munaqabaat/mohajabaat = not meat hence…nothing to gawk at!
Well…we know who to stay away from now…huh…hey, props to President Obama…he has some eye hayah going on! mashallah.
…and bigotry because well…France is famous for its issues with diversity and its own cultural/ethnicity siege mentality...um, yah…they should get with the times and realize that diversity only brings more flavor to the table and nothing is wrong with that!
Allahu alim, as it stands, I hope these munaqabaat stick to their beliefs and arent bullied by this extremely unfair and inhumane law.
