Isn't it a 'proof' you're desperately looking for that in fact - as the Quran teaches- Miriam umm Isa (Mary) was a good Muslima? That's why she was wearing a veil or a head scarf, wasn't she? This way you may further prove that the Roman vestal virgins were also Moslem since they preferred the same headwear.

Anyway, no mention of the Noble Quran has ever been made in Livy or Tacitus, but still we do know that Allah is great , don't we and that he had sent prophets to all the nations before he decided the Arabs were the best and most reliable slaves of all.

>Why Nuns are regularly wearing head scarves and full body covered dresses? Are they being forced by someone to do or they were being asked to do this to hide their curves from prying eyes of male chauvinists of Christian society?<

Ever heard of canonical laws, man? There is no compulsion to become a nun. Hence their numbers are marginal and in fact diminishing. You may leave the monstery without being killed by your loving brother in Allah or a caring Moslem father ready to knife to death any daughter doubting the excellency or peace-loving nature of Islam.

>Any how explain because I am very much concerned about their rights as an individual to live with dignity.<

A Moslem concerned with somebody's (=non-Moslem's) rights? That's paradoxical! Female oppressors in disguise of protectors of women's rights! If I were a nun, I'd get scared of having a Moslem human rights activist willing to protect me.

>It is also a pertinent question that whether any scripture directs to adore such dress or it is only "to present women (say Nuns) as inferior beings," such as those that encourage female genital mutilation, honor killings, and the prohibition of women traveling without their husbands." When they are so respected then why dress code was forced upon them, like other things. Why there is no demand for revision of such strict dress code which ultimately gives feeling of.<

Evidently, we have not enough clever Moslems to divert our attention from the real issue which is the plight of women under Islam to imaginary issues like nuns' rights. By the way, when will the ummah speak in favour of animals rights to stop massacring them to satisfy the sadistic instincts Islam is built upon?

>If every individual is given full freedom to chose his/her style of living, why these nuns are not allowed to marry or have a 'live in relationship', when they are not married then what about fulfillment of their biological needs which is their basic right?<

No one is forced to become a nun or a monk, man. And don't rant here about basic human rights and liberty! You all Moslems follow the path of that sickening tyranny called Islam and yet you dare speak of freedom and human choices! What you say insults our intelligence!

> Whether Denial of such right amounts to serious violation of Human Rights of women?<

A member of dar-al-Islam is worried about violated human rights of women again??? Soon we'll learn that Allah has made women as human as males abrogating his 4:34 "Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other" and introducing male hijab to give a feeling of equality and balance in dar-al-Islam.

>Are Nuns are lesser human beings than any other christian women who can wear clothes or not to wear them ?<

You should be asked a better question instead, Moslem : "Why has Allah not imposed hijab on males? Why? Did his imagination fail him? Or was he just a cunning illiterate male you brain-washed Moslems have mistaken for Allah who is an infantile fairy tale?"
