The correct style of Muslim hair covering.

Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women

Submitted by Jamie Shafer (United States), Aug 9, 2009 at 15:01

There is only one European woman who is wearing a correct hijab and it is, I believe, the Dane who has a white thing covering ALL of her hair and a black scarf on top. The sight of a woman's hair is supposed to drive Muslim men to rape and pillage or some violent action (just kidding about pillage) so the hair must be completely covered. And no, I am not Muslim, anything but. I am outraged at the burdens laid on Muslim women to drag around extensive body coverings at all times when in public for all activities including sports. What a sick and sickening mentality.
