And attack them for wearing this:
And force them to unwear this:
If the lady wearing bikini is free to wear what she likes, then the women wearing the hijab (veil) or niqab are free to choose what to wear. And it is none of anyone's fuckin' business to tell them what to wear.
My point of view is not based on religion here, because I do believe I have no right to question everyone's religion. It is based on the very simple sense of freedom the west that is implemented in the west. I do believe anyone is free to wear what they like, specially when what they wear is part of what they believe. Be what they believe right or wrong, no one should tell them to do what to do. And logically, if those who are against hijab or niqab because they are religious symbols, why don't you people go ask Christians to unwear their crosses, and the Jews to unwear their hats, and the seikhs unwear their turbans.
If the argument is about the fact that wearing a cross or a hat or a turban is not an obligation in those religions. I say this does not still give you any reason or justification to force some kind of dress on people.
And I wonder, if Muslims in the 52 Muslim country around the world forced the Christians living in their countries to unwear their crosses. In Islam, Jesus Christ was not crucified, and so to a Muslim a cross should be a religious symbol of something they believe to be untrue. Will anyone defend those who force Christians to unwear their crosses??
I am not putting any professional argument here, this is how the common Muslim thinks nowadays after France prohibited hijab in schools, Tunisia following the same steps, England's attack on niqab and finally Egypt's University of Helwan controversy over niqab.
If there are people who are free to walk almost naked, there are people who are absolutely free to wear what they believe to be modest. Be they Muslims, Christians, Jews or even aliens.
