Violating Human Rights?

In the name of Allah Most Gracious MOst Merciful

Just finished my second last paper for this mock exam. One paper to go! iyah iyah. feel like blogging on this nice freaking breezy cold weather.

I listened and read a few comments and reactions towards President Sarkozy’s decision on banning the niqab. Violating human rights, act as a barrier between the women and the society and such are the arguments laid out in banning the niqab. Quite ironic. talked to my ‘housemate’ si Ichan kecil about this matter and how ironic it is when the westerns are fighting to put on the hijab or even the niqab while in some of the Islamic countries, they want to take it off. when i heard the reasons they’re banning the niqab, it’s rather upsetting. as if the women are being forced to wear them when in the reality, they’re not. majority of the women who wear them in France to be specific, are converts/reverts muslims who choose to wear them. and by banning the niqab, well, it can be said, it’s violating the human rights as freedom of choice is constrained. Niqab is being seen as a new form of enslavement according to Mr President but by violating the niqab itself, it’s violating the whole basis of democracy. it is claimed that women are not given a choice, when they’re told that they’re going to be burn in the hellfire if they don’t wear the hijab. but that’s too pejorative is it. every religion has their own rules and obligation and people are educated and are being told about the rewards that they’ll receive if they follow certain obligations. but then again, it’s up to the individuals. La ikra ha fiddin. tiada paksaan dalam Islam 🙂
