Reader comment on item: How the Niqab Will Enter British Schools
in response to reader comment: Muslim girls' 'Jihad Chic'.

Submitted by Joshua (United Kingdom), Jan 14, 2009 at 11:19

Are these Hijab, Niqab, Jiljab, etc. fashion accessories or are these Muslim girls making a statement of revolt against the society they live in?

- No, they are part of Islamic law.

If so, they should remain in their own native lands, and not impose their ideologies and fashion statements in their adopted countries.

- No, they legally settled here, and have the right to retain their own culture. And, in what way are they imposing Islam upon you? By wearing Islamic compliant clothing?

A couple of years ago, Mrs. Tony Blair as a lawyer, fought a case on behalf of a Muslim girl who wanted to wear her fashion accessory to school, and she won the case for her.

- It's not a "fashion accessory", it's a piece of Islamic clothing.
