its funny how you talk about freedom of choice then say something like : show us your hair to prove the freedom.. whose freedom you're talking about? mine or yours?

cause if a muslim women chooses to cover her hair then its her freedom to do so .. its HER HAIR .. not your hair!

and why does the west view the islamic way of dressing as a lack of freedom? can't a women who has strong beleives in desency choose to cover her body and her hair ? well beleive it or not.. %90 of muslim women with head covers you see have choose to wear that .. it was a personal choice and if you beleive in human rights you shall respect that and never ask a women to show you her hair or any other part she's covering of her body!!
