i love this so much. these women have soo soo much beauty and are forced to hide it
But they do it willingly though?? You sound like youre trying to say they have a gun pointed to their head and are really pushed to do it, which isnt the truth. Most who wear this are happy with covering their beauty, because beauty isnt always everything. The people who aren’t happy or have other various reasons but are still muslims dont wear it. They aren’t forced to wear this in most occasions. It’s a choice.
Actually usually they are forced but not with a gun to their head but with words and being brain washed all their lives. Wearing a head scarf defies them of basic rights and puts them selves under men and allowing themselves not to be treated as equals.
actually they’re not forced my friend has a muslim mom who chooses to wear it and i have another friend with a muslim mom who chooses not to. It’s a religious choice in general except in extremist countries. learn your facts before judging.
it’s sad tbh how clearly limited all of your knowledge is on the subject you’re debating. I wrote 14 pages on the topic (not to mention I come from a Muslim family) but I’m obvs not going to post that, what it comes down to is the freedom to choose, and how the hijab is interpreted. For some women, it’s not a choice, because in many Islamic societies choices aren’t something that women can make alone, and it’s something that is forced, by punishment of harassment or exile from their community. For others it is a sign of modesty and freedom and piety and pride for their religion and culture. But you can’t say women in Islam are or are not definitively forced to wear hijab. This photo can represent either the completely tragic patriarchy that seems to have been ingrained in Muslim values because of outdated politics, or it can be liberating, beautiful and a symbol of faith - the only people who really get to decide how to interpret that are the Muslim women themselves, so before you tell us what a hijab does and means to “them” why don’t you ask?
