Reader comment on item: My Burqa Debate with Martha Nussbaum

Submitted by MdShafiqM (Saudi Arabia), Feb 25, 2013 at 06:04

A healthy body in a healthy mind! Women's burqa, hijab or such coveringsā€¦. essentially is to protect men! Men are often weak and by nature, prone to consciously or unconsciously commit mistakes, gradually that could lead to an unhealthy, corrosive, filthy state of living conditions; beyond repairable. It is a universal fact that men are often inclined to and commit grave or sinful acts, by nature, being prone to be mislead or misguided by their underdeveloped instincts.

The covering of women is essential also because it helps to prevent and protect men, too, from getting inclined towards unfair, distressing, humiliating, unnecessary, baseless, shameless, impure, ,sex oriented, in a way degrading or even sinful, foul, to a great extents giving clues to or inviting illegitimate thoughts in a normally clean, pure-holy-minds of such persons, otherwise. Therefore the blame partly or even wholly might tend to fall on the female person who by her unconscious, or unaware behaviorism or outlook, as might be said, from the other context, though not directly realizing the influence she is causing; who seems to have instigated such sinful thoughts arising in the minds of men; that are prone to; due to either their mind-set; ill-knowledge; uncultured; unethical; uneducated to respect the women's prideful, respectable esteem. Also because such impact would lead the man towards an insane state of worldly living conditions; in which he get dragged into and would lose the sense of respecting women; day by day; making his own life miserable later along with his family; by increasing in the so developing mind that keeps heading towards criminality of various sorts; ultimately; of which we all are well aware of. The advantage or liability of not being responsible for the crimes in the society; committed by men; shall not fall on the responsibility of women; it is necessary for each individual women; as a contribution of well mannerism within the fore of the society; to maintain purity and tranquility. Thus the fact remains to be concluded; to keep the men-kind pure in our society it is the prime duty of the women at large to maintain her own dignity, honor, respect; which in turn makes it easier for the men folk too; to remain clean; and also assist the law enforcing agencies; for the crimes against women will keep shedding towards minimal; in our societies; that being their prime duty: to maintain a well balanced and harmonious, benevolent environmental for all; in all walks of healthy social living.
