Dear Maria!

It is good to have your reply on my comment...i think i am sorry that i have not conveyed my point to you in an efective way or you percieve it wrong... this is not debate of calling a woman a piece of meat or making man superior to women... these types of questions came to your mind because you people dont know islam. do u think islam is just a religion of making women covered with cloths or just to give superiority to man... i think so NOT. actually some of we people dont take it seriously we learn to single point and we came to conclusion

islam is not a religion to follow in pieces.. you follow islam or you dont follow islam. there is no middle line between it. but sadly some of our muslim brothers and sisters make the middle line. thats is why some of we people are so confused of that middle line knowing that women should have to wear a big piece of cloth not knowing the duties of man...so and so... Islam is a way of life from praying Allah to make a deal in a market place. every small to the biggest thing is discussed in islam... so i do say that the middle line followers have made a big problem for those who strictly follow islam. and also made the confusion in the minds of other people who dont know islam.

now coming back to question of
Why does Islam degrade women by keeping them behind the veil?
it is a long answer be patient and read it carefully and clear your mind. i think so this will help you a lot. if you try to understand. it is a very good article i found on http://www.irf.net/irf/faqonislam/index.htm
