Im confused a bit here.Clearly the majority or Jews and Muslims see an implied religious requirement to cover hair and their bodies because of modesty.I actualy heard that the face is not a requirement.Still many people feel that this is how they serve God. I dont understand why they do this but its not up to me to understand . I just know that most people seem to be complaining about full body covering which sounds a little silly to me. If a face is exposed the person can be identified. Covering the body who cares.. In my orthodox jewish neighborhood most ladies (including myself) cover their hair, bodies completely.If they outlaw for Muslim women they can do it in the amish communities and jewish communities too.So whats the solution?

Submitting....
