Hijab - it's just a piece of cloth... or is it?

Why was Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. greatly admired ?

Why didn't Queen Elizabeth wear her hat while visiting the mosque in Turkey? Why did the Queen of England need to submit and wear a hijab ?

Why do non-Muslim women cover their heads when in an Islamic country?

Why are Muslim girls murdered when they refuse to wear a hijab?

Why are so many Muslim girls murdered in the name of "honour" every year?

Do you think Muslim women should be given the right to vote? drive a car ? go out on the town? wear what they like? be with male friends of any faith and not risk being murdered for it.

Julie from Texas, what are your main concerns? Do you care mostly about what people think about Muslims

or

Do you care enough to speak out against the oppression / heinous crimes that are committed ALL OVER THE WORLD in the name of your Allah ?
