Reader comment on item: Shoeless George Bush
in response to reader comment: What if the white women took off their hajabs in the mosque

Submitted by tracy abdalghany (United States), Apr 11, 2008 at 18:43

I am a white muslim woman , i wear a hijab and modest clothing not because i am made to dress this way but because i choose to dress this way . i do get some looks and attention . that is only natural because not all people understand the islamic religion .i would much rather be looked at because i cover my body then be stared at because im showing my body. that is the kind of attention i dont want.

and another thing when i talk to people they are force to look at my face and not my hair or anywhere else. my youger sister doesnt always cover (wear hijab) when we go to the mosque and nothing has ever been said to her and she was never made to leave. before you judge maybe you should read the holy qur'an and see that there are alot of the same beliefs in both the holy qur'an and the holy bible.
