Dear Ms. Meghan:

I thank you very much for wearing Dresses according to your Own Taste. Every man & woman has Every Right to wear Dresses according to their Taste.

Holy Quran teaches us to wear Nice, Clean & Beautiful Dresses for Men & Women. There is no Prescribed Dresses in the Holy Quran but it emphasises for Nice Dresses with Good Taste & Standard.

Being a well educated Muslim, I don't like or approve the "Burqua" Dress of Afgan Women or other Muslim Women. I have finished my Compulsory Pilgrimage ( Hajj) to Mecca. During that Time, I have seen Women coming from different parts of the World. The number of Muslim Women from Indonesia & Malaysia are so large, they are visible from Every part of Mecca or around Kaba. I saw these Women to wear All White Dresses covering their Heads with White cover. They looked so Wonderful & Beautiful. They are the Real Muslim Women, who performed their Hajj with nice Dresses & Piety.

Oh the people of the West! Do you know that the Christian Missionary Women- Nuns, who go out for Preaching their Religion, wear Nice White Dresses like Apron wirh Head covering.

It is the very Right of Women to choose nice Dresses for them. The Government of France or any other Western Government have no Rights to impose any Condition on the Dresses of Women or Girls. It is the Fundamental Human Rights of the Women or Girls to exercise thier Human Rights. No Governments have any Rights to curb their Rights.

Even in the USA, I have seen or see some American Women or Girls to wear a Head Scraf. Is it the Only Islamic dress? NO, it is the personal taste of the American women to wear such Scraves.

Some people in the West criticise such Muslim or Non-Muslim Dresses without considering the Human Rights of Women or Girls. So people should NEVER question any Nice Dresses wearing by any Woman or Girl in any countries of the World. Respect their Rights & their Dresses. Never cricize any such Women or Girls, if they don't wear any Dresses like your people.

Thanks to all the Civilized people of the West including America, France.
