Different attitude of Hijabis

Reader comment on item: Ten Percent of Muslims Call for Niqabs or Burqas

Submitted by Nazim Cairo (Germany), Jan 12, 2014 at 17:10

… We muslims are not a static entity but can evolve and think differently from each other. Any human being is a complicated and torn creature. Between carnal desires and devotion say or between greed and humility. So support for Sharia in principle and head covering in theory does not mean desire to enforce it or wear it.

Even amongst Turks those 40% wanting Hijab as a proper attire the attitudes could be very variable. it is obvious from way hijab is worn. Living in Egypt or Turkey you can say if the girl is devout or a not, serious or a flirt - by looking not just at hijab but the whole personal attitude. Even for 63% of Saudi Arabians wanting niqab I am not sure whether they are all extremely devoted or just conformist.
