My theory of the Burqa

Reader comment on item: The Burqa Wars

Submitted by Lynn (United States), Jul 16, 2009 at 07:57

I have a theory that the burka was used by people who became afraid that Mohammad and his followers would take woman and young girls off the streets and use them for sexual slaves, so they covered themselves up to protect them from the eyes of Mohammad.

After Mohammad and his followers saw this, they began to notice the lovely eyes of the young woman and girls so they had to invent a screen in front of the veil so that Mohammad and his followers could not see their eyes.

So you see, it was to protect themselves from Mohammad and his followers, but now woman should know that they do not have to protect themselves from them any more because they have no more power to kidnap woman and young girls off the streets and use them for sexual slaves.

Well not in the West anyway. They probably still need to cover themselves in the East where Mohammad's followers still rule that part of the world.

That is why old woman can show their faces because the world has worn them down and they no longer have the beauty shining from their eyes or faces because the followers of Mohammad stole it from them many years ago.
