The BURQA, To Wear Or Not To Wear

The Burqa, To Wear Or Not To Wear

To the Muslim women
to make less of their whining —
wearing the Burqa is simply
not a major decision
were it not to involve your family
nor your religion.
To wear or not to wear the Burqa
involves arguments brought about by
human rights, religious requirements,
social implications and government laws.
Oftentimes, these arguments do not matter
and may be ignored as a basis for the decision.
Now, consider these :
The Burqa may be worn in public
in countries wherein the state religion is Islam,
but not in countries which do not recognize Islam
as a state religion, or even those countries without
any state religion.
Human Rights and the Freedom of Expression
do not apply in countries where majority rules to ban it.
The Burqa may be worn in social functions of
Muslims, and also in religious functions and rites
of Islam, but only in such exclusive functions.
Wearing the Burqa under the visible public annoyance
is simply forcing the recognition of the religion that it
stands for.
Wearing this may not invoke the right of
the freedom of religion,
the freedom of expression,
nor the person’s human rights.
It merely represent the forcible imposition to the public
of a rule that is recognized only in separate religious circles.
Islam is a religion,
not a Political Institution.
The Burqa is an Islam Article
not a Constitution Article.
if there be any whining from Muslim women
let them be heard in the mosques
not in the courts.
Anyway, what grievous harm would it do
to the Women of Islam
if the Burqa is forsaken?
An Islamic lashing for being a disbeliever?
Divorce? Abducted children?
