The Islamic Festival goes to Milan

Reader comment on item: The "Islamic Fashion Festival" Goes to Milan

Submitted by Anne (United States), Jul 21, 2011 at 10:32

So Modesty is the topic here, as if a good skirt and jacket or dress on a well dressed lady isn't modest enough. Whose modesty are we really trying to accommodate here, the Islamic women, or the men who don't want their women to be normal or have any rights to work, drive cars, or start a business. It appears to me that Islam has been westernized, even though they don't want to admit it, fashionable business women, and ladies who start businesses dress well and professionally. I don't think we have to cover up our entire body to be modest. The behavior of a woman says alot, she can poised, intelligent, constructive, and innovative without covering up her body. This Modesty kick is another radical principle of Islam to control their women and to keep other men from looking at them. What else do they try to do, control their minds with the Mind Meld????
