Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women
in response to reader comment: Not pathetic

Submitted by donvan (United States), Oct 23, 2011 at 19:17

So, we are to respect social customs regardless of how barbaric they may be. Should we respect the custom of dismemberment for simple theft, stoning of women, forcing women into a wearable prison berka. We have an obligation to defend the individual human person from the tryanny which is so rampant in the Islamic world. Western females, in a misguided effort to appease, wearing the I'slamic scarf IS pathetic, and contrary to Shria law which clearly forbids non- Muslams wearing Muslam clothing. Your point regarding avoidence is only giving encouragement to the oppressors.......

best regards...
