Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women

If there were no honor killings of muslims daughters by their own families for not wearing the hijab then maybe I would not be so bothered by "just a piece of cloth" .

The islamic hijab is used as a symbol of dominance and control. Just like sharia law is wrongful because it is controling and cruel.

Normally it is nice when a visting politician and family takes a part of a culture and wears it. Like going to Scotland and putting on a kilt. That is a good gesture and a sign of respect, but to put on a symbol of control and abuse is wrong. For example if Nazi Germany had not invaded the rest of Europe but did oppress the Jews in Germany and a non German politician was visiting Nazi Germany would you want them to put a yellow star or their clothes.

The yellow star the nazis had the Jew wear is a sign of a lower status, the hijab is the same. For the
hijab is only worn by women and the islamists treat women poorly just like the prophet mohammed did and taught in the koran.

We should stop playing these games with people who don't even respect us when we show respect to them.

islam is oppressive and by extension the hijab is also wrong !
