Excuse me, ... has anyone that has worn a niqab, jilbabs or hijabs complained that " oh i cant breathe because i am taking in a lack of oxygen"? i think not. so just bear in mind that we are not forced into wearing the niqab, jilbabs, or hijabs. it's like saying we should ban hoodies because a number of crimes have taken place by them..i.e robberies and another example should we ban ski masks? again that clothing item has been used for crime purposes.

So next time you try to suggest a DESPERATE atttemp in to banning hijabs etc just take in to consideration that it has nothing to do with you so try your best not to get involved. We are not oppressed...it is not compulsory we wear them as a symbol of our religion and to be modest about our looks. We want people to talk to us our inner beauty rather then our apperance.

Last but not least ,society will rather have women covered then them having no self respect and dignity by being near enough half naked. WHY WERE CLOTHES INVENTED?
