Sorry for your for your unfounded & unwanted Comments. You do live in Romania and you have Not seen the Free World- the USA, Germany, Britain, France, Japan or Australia. So your perception about the people is very poor.

I had the Great opprotunities to live and work in those countries. Most of the people of these countries are Excellent, Gentle and very Law abiding. They are Busy with their Life. They have no Time to attck Burqa or Hijab.

Personally I am Not in favor of Afghan type of Burqa. It is odd looking. I will Never approve this kind for any Muslim Women & Girls. I have Never Ever seen any of my Friends/ Relatives' wives to wear this kind of Dress in my Life. This is the Dress, I call it, is the Dress of the poor, illiterate Tribal women of Afghanistan or other some Muslim countries of such Standard. This kind of Dress is Not or Ever be accptable, and prevail and practice in the Enlightened Societies like ours.

Our own Society would like the Society of the West having preserving our own Standard, Taste, Culture, the Culture Universally acceptable by others. We do live in a Society of the Weast and we do not see any Problem whatso ever. I go by and live with my own Standar without disturbing the Local people and their own Culture & Traditions. We do live in a harmoneous Society. I have seen in the USA and Australia that the Local people love us and keep good Friendship with due respect for our own Standard, Customs and Culture. The Australian Government eocourages the people to live together in a Harmoneous Society.

The other day I attended the Festival of the Australian Society in Canberra. It was a Great Festival to remember for a Long time. The White Australians were performing the Indian Dances in Group with youg, old and children. It was so Wonderful. The people of 100 Cultures, Tastes and Religions were displaying in the Open Public places. Can you imagine this in your country, Europe or the USA? This is very True with Australia and Australian Culture & Traditions. It was so Great & Wonderful for the whole Nation. The Free people were enjoying this Great Day with Joy & Entertainments. It happened on Australian National Day, January 20 this year in Canberra too.

Even I saw some Muslim women wearing Hijab, Not Burqa in such occasions, the Streets and Public places. Do the Australian or American people have any Objection to such Dresses? Even some Muslim women and Girls Never wear any Hijab at all. Was there any wrong with those Muslim Women & Girls who just wore Trousers and Shirts like other Australian and Americans?

You need to see the World- the very Free & Wide World. Then your Horizon will be wide enough and you will not see any Offences in the Dresses like Hijab/ Niqak but, Not Burqa. I am very much against the Burqa. No Muslim women & Girls should Ever cover their Faces & both Hands for any reasons. They must be smart, educated the about Dress code and Modesty and must not act like any Stupid people, never acceptable to the people of the West. They must accept the way of the Right Philosophy of Life: "When you are in Rome, behave like Romans." If the Muslim women & Girls go to the Universities for highier Degrees in Europe, America or Australia, they Must Not wear Burqa. Even Hijab is Not Necessary. Just wear any Modest & Smart Dress to cover your Body. To cover Hair for them is Necessary. Nevr try to draw the Attention of the male counter parts and make Friendship for Funs or with illigal motives. These are not acceptable to any Civilized Society. However, Friendship never confines to any Religion, Culture, Language or Nationality. Any young couples may be attracted to each other. This is natural & Human. We have no control over such Human attractions, love or anything of such nature.

Let the Free people live in a Free Society with Free Mind and attitude without any prejudices against other people at all. Let all peoples live in Peace, Harmony, Love & Respect. Thank you all. Cheers.
