It's not right to ban modesty

Reader comment on item: Weak Brits, Tough French
in response to reader comment: Banning head covering is good

Submitted by amy (United States), Jul 8, 2010 at 16:50

If one chooses to cover up it is a human right. Who are other's to say no just because it's part of a religion. It is a sacred thing to show love for one's self and their God. To block other's sins by being covered is a good thing. Yes it should be by one's choice. But it's respecting yourself. May Allah have mercy upon those trying to enforce this... and wisen them up to human rights......
