In medieval times, Islam came to Kashmir in peace in the form of Sufism, converted the Hindu kng, and when Afgjans attacked, turned against the locals and thats how Islam took over the region. Read the book -- The last queen of Kashmir, the story of Kota Rani.

Kota Rani apparently cursed Kashmir as well isn't it?

She attended Grammy awards without a burqa.

It's the another daughter who doesn't wear burqa. There is nothing wrong in wearing it by choice. Only caution any country should take is whenever their is conflict between religious beliefs and laws of the land, laws should be enforced without any compromise. No leeway for any religion.

it's actually fake...poor photoshop.  the mesh is supposed to overlap the person's photo somewhat at the edges, esp at the bottom.

It's  a sample john doe card which has been photoshopped.

I knew it. It was a Western saazish to defame Islam.

Beetle ji Ye zyada ho gaya. I come from a village as well and while ladies do use Ghoonghat in the households , they don't take it to the extreme levels you are talking about. Certainly not to the extent of blinding themselves while sitting on a bike.

 

it is true. In UP, Haryana, Rajasthan, it is quite prevalent.

Wearing Burqa as a religious statement and empowerment is the biggest load of bull crap that can be ever told to you.

 

Taliban and other radical groups force the women to wear these burqas against their own will. How many women have a freedom of choice there? Hence the burqa naturally becomes a symbol of opression.

 

It is the biggest form

of  irony if someone chooses this tent as a symbol of liberation or some kind of a statement. Wearing a burqa as a statement is actually mocking those oppressed women

I don't think either purdah or burqa are regressive as long as the one who wears it is by one's own choice. Though for security purposes wherever necessary rules or laws should not take into account religious beliefs. In my personal opinion though girls or women should be as beautifully and elegantly dressed as they can. Short or conservatively dressed the overall look must be elegant.

Can imprisonment be by choice?
