So mansoor what you are saying is that the hijab stops rape. Well if Islam is such a wonderful religion why is it necessary in muslim countries for women to wear the hijab. Surely male adherents to Islam ought not be subject to animal lusts and need pieces of cloth to stop that lust arising in their muslim heart. They should be of sucha self aware state that they can observe the emotion arising and let it go. Obviously they cannot. So of what spiritual use does Islam perform if performing its rituals are of no use in helping its male adherents learn some semblance of self control. What your post says is that even with Islam as their religion muslim males are no better than western infidel males without the best religion. So why bother?
