Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women

Submitted by Bella Ceruza (Indonesia), Apr 25, 2013 at 03:14

HI Daniel - hijabbing may be the first time I disagree with you - well to some extent anyway.

I see nothing wrong with females covering our hair in respect to local custom. What is wrong - and this is where we do agree - is that the respect is not returned. Hence - let's cover and demand that they respect us in return.

The very first form of respect would be to stop censoring our media - and for the media to stop allowing this. The international media needs to make a giant stand. International Day of Freedom of Media needs to be declared and ALL of you need to simultaneously publish a cartoon or two, to write about female suffering under sharia law etc. ALL OVER THE FREE WORLD TO STAND TOGETHER.

As to the floosie - well she's a perfect victory for the hijabbers - look how they have reformed her!!

Best wishes,

Bella
