Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women
in response to reader comment: wearing the hijab

There is no reference in Quran or the Hadith that say government or the like are to enforce the Hijab, this is new to Islam. Some Muslims use the enforcement of the Hijab as part of an arsenal of discriminatory laws to oppress women.
