Dear Naushad:

Governments do not like a total cover up of the face because of being able to identify people from their drivers license picture. I personally believe they should be able to wear their choice of garments while being at home, or other activities, if this is their choice. Many Islamic women who have come to Western culture, or other cultures, do not feel the need to cover up or to be so modest.

If the shoulders, and body are covered, this covers most of the body and shows modesty, but I believe the face and eyes are beautiful, and don't see why anyone would want to conceal them. Fresh air, sunshine, and light are very precious to alot of women. In hot climates, it is good to cover from the sun to prevent burning or dryness, but in general I believe most women like to have their faces exposed. This is not unreasonable.

Submitting....
