Have you heard female defenders of the Muslim dress code tell us how it’s all about dignity, honor and modesty?
Is that how they REALLY think? Because clearly they don’t speak for ALL Muslim women.
Look at the difference between Saudi Arabia and Syria.
The Saudis, for the first time, had a sprinter compete in a “full-body kit” and hijab. Finishing 7th in her heat, she failed to advance to the final round. (But got the obligatory fawning praise anyway). Finishing last, and similarly dressed, was her teammate.
Dailymail made two interesting observations:
She completed the race in 14.61 seconds, lagging far behind the current world record of 10.49 seconds set by American Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988.
But despite her extra clothing, she appeared to show off part of her mid-riff while competing in the race.
Meanwhile, in Syria…
Syrians have been pictured celebrating after they were liberated from ISIS rule in a northern stronghold in the country.
A woman was seen smiling in Manbij as she burned a niqab she was forced to wear by the Islamic State regime while another man could not stop beaming as he had his beard cut.
The outpour of emotion came after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an Arab-Kurdish force backed by the US, expelled most of the terror group’s troops from the town last week.
As the ISIS fighters left the town, they packed the civilians into cars to prevent the SDF from attacking them.
ISIS, which previously held the city for two-and-a-half years since seizing it in January 2014, took around 2,000 civilians to use as ‘human shields’ as they fled.
It doesn’t seem the women in Syria had quite the same view of the Islamic dress code’s virtue.
Is Islam’s female garb for modesty or control?
