The hashtag #حرق_النقاب or Harq al-Niqab (burn the niqab) is Trending on twitter


And here is a link to the hashtag


As would be expected Arabic speaking posters most of them wish to see al-Niqab gone. However, a few post verses from the Qur'an, as usual, that tell us that the Niqab is mandated by Allah and warn the readers about Allah's anger with those that disagree.

This exchange of ideas would not have happened some 20 years ago

Most Indian and Pakistani Muslims posters? They are more Arab than the Arabs themselves and they seem to love the Niqab
